For Immediate Release


International horror film festival to play at Marietta College

October 6


Marietta, OH September 6 Exploding Tarantula Entertainment has announced its continued commitment to supporting exciting original horror entertainment through Terror On The River Horror Fest screening Saturday, October 6 at 7pm in the McDonough Auditorium at Marietta College.


Terror On The River Horror Fest was established to bring short horror films and those who create them to a larger audience.


“Shorts don't get the same kind of attention as feature length films because the industry is still largely of the mindset that only a wide theatrical release can be profitable.” According to Britt Powell, festival director and head of Exploding Tarantula, “we're proving that changes in technology and the way the audience consumes entertainment is creating a platform online for this type of work.”


Terror On The River has received nearly 2,000 submissions from two dozen countries. The festival features both new and accomplished actors, directors, writers, and crew members.

Notable credits this year include Tony Moran, best known for his portrayal as Michael Myers in John Carpenter's Halloween, Courtney Gains known for his work as Malachai in Stephen King's Children of the Corn and Hans Klopek in The 'Burbs, and Nathan Baesel who portrayed Leslie Vernon in Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.


Additional categories recognize Women in Horror and Student Productions.


The Judges' top selections will play in the McDonough Auditorium on October 6 as well as stream via the online portion of the festival.


Screening in a theater gives our community the opportunity to come together to celebrate and enjoy these works while online streaming allows us to take full advantage of new technology to bring the artists and new original work to the attention of a much larger audience than what was possible in the past.


These films are not rated by the MPAA and may contain material not suitable for children including violence, strong language, and adult situations. As such, unaccompanied minors will not be admitted.
