"The perfect Horror film event."

"The Sacramento Horror Film Festival is a sincere event run by passionate and genuine fans of the genre that truly support the art of

independent filmmaking

. So many festivals lose focus among pretension and frivolous things that have nothing to do with what it means to love the genre and art form. Tim Meunier has created an annual tradition that encapsulates what it means to "live for this stuff". The Sac Horror Fest is always an eclectic mix of events, people, and screenings that stimulate the brain and heart. I am very appreciative for the honor that has been bestowed upon me and my film at the festival and it's part in my career. I have fond memories of the stellar fans that arrived in full costumes, the family like staff, and the comfortable setting. You arrive in order to take in some awesome horror flicks and events, but leave with more than just memories, you go home with a new horror family."

In Blood, Blake Reigle , Director 'Beneath The Surface' , Co-Producer 'His Name Was Jason'

"ALARMA was filmed in Sacramento starring actors from Sacramento. So I was thrilled when we were able to premiere the short at the 2008 Sacramento Horror Film Festival! The presentation of our film was top-notch, the crowd's energy was enthusiastic and the antics of emcees

"The Sacramento Horror Film Festival was a wonderful experience. I was invited to attend the show in 2008 as a special guest, and it was everything it promised itself to be. I was treated incredibly well, my accomodations were top notch and the atmosphere was very inviting. I've done a lot of shows in the past, but Sacramento is definitely one my favorites. It is an amazing platform for aspiring filmmakers and seasoned professionals alike. Everyone is approachable and the antics and hijinks that happen are always fun. I look forward to it and cannot wait to come back."

Chris .R. Notarile, Blinky Productions Inc. Director of Methodic

"I was invited as a guest to appear at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival last year (2007). Not only did I have a great time but the festival itself was one of the best I appeared at all year long. I do quite few of these throughout the year and it was tops on my list. Plus the movies in the festival were some of the best entries I have seen. If you have any opportunity to attend I would highly reccomend it. It is a great time!"

Tony E. Moran , The Original Michael Myers

Shaun Baland , Hope Photographers

"Just wanted to say thank you for putting on an

excellent festival

this past October. My girlfriend and I attended all three days and were among the diehards who stayed until the very end. I was very impressed on all levels of your presentation; the films, celebrities, bands, vendors and the friendliness of you staff, and even the other people who attended. I made a point to purchase something from every vendor and celebrity to show my support.Once again, thank you and I can't wait until 2009."

Chris Martin, Fan
