Here is the Feature Film Schedule for the Sixth Annual Salem Horror Fest in 2023




BD reports that Salem Horror Fest, one of the “greatest genre festivals in the world” according to MovieMaker Magazine, will come back to the Peabody Essex Museum on Thursday, April 20, 2023.

A number of premieres, filmmakers, and special guests, including Linnea Quigley, Amelia Kinkade, Geretta Geretta, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, and Stephen Geoffreys, will be part of the Salem Horror Fest, which is being organized by Cinema Salem and Bit Bar. It will also feature live podcasts from Faculty of Horror and Horror Queers.

The celebration will celebrate Tony Todd, a legendary actor best known for creating the iconic role of Candyman in the 1992 film as well as other other roles.

The complete feature film schedule for the sixth annual Salem Horror Fest was released this week by Fangoria, and we’ve included it below. Visit Fangoria for additional details!

“The world is becoming a more frightening place, but Salem remains queer as fuck with zero tolerance for fascist bullshit,” says festival director Kay Lynch to Fangoria. Everyone will adore Salem in the spring and be able to fully appreciate its charm as a seaside town with a rich history and hospitable weirdos.
