Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one day-pass for two to the Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center (up to an $80 value). The pass can be used on Friday, September 30, Saturday, October 1, or Sunday, October 2.

Surrounded by sky-obscuring trees and spookily secluded mountain towns, the Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival delights audiences with marathon screenings of horror and science fiction movies submitted from all over the globe. The schedule overflows with indie and high-production films that run the gamut from gleefully campy to nightmarish. 11/11/11, which foretells the entry of evil through a portal unlocked by the date, premieres on opening night of the festival in grand fashion with a premiere party on either side of the screening. For an additional $5 cover, Saturday's special screening of the 1983 classic Sleepaway Camp is prefaced by a costume party with live music, karaoke, drink specials, and more. To scrutinize the levels of horror and believability of plastic vampire teeth, the festival enlists a crack-team of notable judges, including Harry Manfredini, the man responsible for the anxiety-ridden scores of the Friday the 13th series. Veteran filmmakers and aspiring actors alike can attend a host of free workshops, such as the participatory Triage for Scripts, a 60-minute foray into the world of screenwriting and military medicine.

Though Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival offers a discounted rate on Friday, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
