If you want your horror film screened at the Wreak Havoc Horror Film Festival, it should be fast paced, not sluggish or dull.
"The biggest mistake of filmmakers is that their films are boring," said Wreak Havoc HFF director Dan Sellers. "Many of these films are slow paced, don't have a strong point of view, and lack entertainment value. Our award winning films are enjoyable. They're fun to watch."
Wreak Havoc is currently accepting films for its third edition, to screen this September in Greensboro, North Carolina's Carolina Theater. Its first edition had been in Wadesboro, NC. "Where they filmed Evil Dead 2," says Sellers.
Wreak Havoc has many award categories, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Special FX, and Best North Carolina Film.
