The State Of The Scare Late Night Horror Podcast & Panel -- Live on the Airwaves!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

No doubt about it, the Horror and Thriller genre these days is killing it. From the explosion of creativity on film (Get Out, It Follows, It, A Quiet Place, Raw...) to the murderous domination of macabre episodic (Fear The Walking Dead, AHS, Castle Rock, Mindhunter), we are witnessing a renaissance of the dark delights for our terrifying times. Join the Writers Panel podcast and ScreenCraft at the Austin Film Festival in the witching hour (and between the parties!) for a “State of the Scare” roundtable conversation. In this spookiest time of year, top talents of this frightful genre will come together for a discussion on trends, storytelling, and what makes a great scare.

This panel is presented by ScreenCraft Media.
