An amazing blend of immersive experiences, must-see screenings, and enthralling live events, The Overlook Film Festival was absolute horror heaven when it took place in New Orleans this past June (in case you missed it, you can read my event report for a recap of all the horror happenings), and I'm already looking forward to next year's festival. Thankfully, the wait won't be long, as The Overlook Film Festival has announced a return to New Orleans from March 30th–April 2nd!

Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on 2023's The Overlook Film Festival (which, according to the festival's recent tweet, will feature "New dates. New frights. New games. Ghastly delights."), and if you're a director looking to submit your film to the festival, submissions are now open (with a submission discount for Louisiana short films) at:

    About the Author - Derek Anderson

    Raised on a steady diet of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Derek has been fascinated with fear since he first saw ForeverWare being used on an episode of Eerie, Indiana.

    When he’s not writing about horror as the Senior News Reporter for Daily Dead, Derek can be found daydreaming about the Santa Carla Boardwalk from The Lost Boys or reading Stephen King and Brian Keene novels.
