Billing itself as "the little festival with the big attitude," the interactive Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival, taking place October 18–20, boasts a full schedule of sci-fi, action, suspense, and horror flicks. Featured films include the critically acclaimed horror gem starring Lance Henriksen, It's in the Blood (October 18 at 6 p.m.), which follows a father and son stranded in a forest, where they’ll have to grapple with their dark secrets as they try to escape a supernatural stalker. The cult mash-up President Wolfman (October 19 at 5:30 p.m.) recycles stock movie footage and sounds into a tale of an American president afflicted with a werewolf curse, which has him terrorizing Washington DC by nightfall. To cap off the festival, the Groovy Awards ceremony is followed by the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle Terminator 2: Judgment Day (October 20 at 8:30 p.m.) revs up sci-fi fans with an action-packed story of time-traveling robots battling over both humanity's future and whether all hunter-killer androids will come standard with Austrian accents. Plentiful popcorn keeps tummies from rumbling during screenings, and cold beer quenches of-age patrons' thirst. Click here for festival hours.
