The organizers of Portland’s own H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival are resurrecting the beloved Zompire: The Undead Film Festival, dedicated to highlighting various filmmakers’ creative attempts to show the undead in new and unexpected ways.
Join us on October 13-14th at the Clinton Street Theater (2522 SE Clinton St) for a special two night ‘Zompire VS The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival’ event, featuring fright flicks to get your Halloween season off to a great start! Get an early start at our no cover pre-party on Friday, October 12th at 11 pm at The Lovecraft Bar, Portland’s own horror-themed watering hole. Mingle with other horror film enthusiasts over drinks and a few selected short films.
On Saturday, October 13th, at 6 pm, we’ll be showcasing independent zombie and vampire short films, such as the award winning “Threnody” by female genre filmmaker Tyrrell Shaffner, “You are So Undead” by Alex Epstein (head writer for Charlie Jade), “Dead Friends” by Stephen W. Martin, and many more. At 9 pm, attendees are encouraged to participate in our first annual Undead Costume Contest with special Guest Judges the Living Dead Girls and Eraserhead Press. Prizes include swag generously donated by The Lovecraft Bar, Liv Rainey-Smith, The HPLHS, and Sigh Co. Graphics. Saturday night’s revelries culminate with a special presentation of the 80’s classic vampire tale “The Lost Boys.”
On Sunday, October 14th, at 6 pm, we’ll be showing shorts and features adapted from or inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, as a preview of the 18th Annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, scheduled for next May. Sunday’s films will feature the Portland premiere of “The Evil Clergyman,” starring Lovecraft film veterans Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, and the late David Gale. Previously unreleased, a rough cut preview was shown at the last HPLFF, and now audiences will have a chance to see this lost gem in its entire restored glory!
New Lovecraftian feature “The Thing on the Doorstep” will make its Portland debut, along with independent shorts from around the world including “The Shunned House” from Seattle’s Maelstrom Productions, “Odokuro” by Aurelio Voltaire, narrated by Gary Numan, and “The Captured Bird” (Best Short Film Fant-Asia Film Festival) by Jovanka Vuckovic, former editor-in-chief Rue Morgue magazine.
