Today would have been Day 3 of the of the 5th Twisted Dreams Film Festival. While the festival had to be postponed we wanted to share some past films you can watch online.
Don't worry we will still have Twisted Dreams 2020 just at a later date.
Day 3 is usually a packed day with lots of screenings so today we got a full slate for you.
Who's Watching Oliver?
TDFF 2017 had a bunch of crazy films and Who's Watching Oliver stood out as one one of the bloodiest. It won our Jury Award for Best Feature and shocked the audience. The movie is about a loner who falls in love but is torn between his new found love and his devotion to his mother. Check it out on Amazon Prime
Serial Killer Culture
When planning our second year of the festival we decided we should have panel discussion. We ended up getting in touch with John Borowski and getting a screening of his documentary Serial Killer Culture. It's a fascinating documentary about how serial killers develop cult following. You can find the film on Amazon Prime
In 2018 we teamed up with Troma films and got to select a film. We looked to our friend and Troma expert Michael Viers to select one of the newer Troma films. He picked The Slashening. The movie is a combination horror comedy but doesn't skimp on the horror or social commentary. It's a fun and bloody film that everyone who got to see it on the big screen loved. Today would have been the day the Lloyd Kaufman made his first appearance at the Twisted Dreams Film Festival but don't worry he will still come. In the mean time we hope this satisfies your Troma itch.

Animated Short Block
Twisted Dreams 2017 we had our first Animated Block. 2020 we will have our second animated short block. To hold you over here is a selection of a few Animated Films we have screened.
Hive - The first film on the list from Adam Ciolfi. A stop motion animated film that is truly amazing.
Filth - Our second Adam Ciolfi film. This one from TDFF2019 and it's probably the most violent animated film we have screened.
Me, Baby, and the Alligator - A film that we felt went under the radar at TDFF2017. This is a great looking film and hope everyone checks it out.
Sweet Self Destruction - A fun very short film.
Thrills and Kills
If you are looking for blood and guts here some films for you.
Studded Nightmare - Winner of the 2017 Jury Award for Best Short. This is the perfect example of telling an scary story in a short amount of time.
The Stylist - Jill Gevargizian brought the creepiness with this film currently being turned into a feature film. Be sure to check out this short before the feature comes out.
Die! Sitter! Die!: Rupert - This movie is the true definition of a WTF movie. It's one you have to see to believe. It's a little long but well worth it.
Possession - A locally made film about a friends night out that takes a deadly turn.
Low Self Esteem - Sometimes people get a little mixed up in their head and things don't turn out well for someone Check out this short with great performance by the lead actress.
