About the Sacremento Horror Film Festival – created in 2007, the SHFF screens more films over fewer days than any other horror film festival thus providing a greater chance for exposure for the horror filmmaker. The festival screens all things horror including features, shorts, documentaries, music videos, trailers, and animations. The SHFF was acclaimed for being “The Best Place for a Real Horror Show” in the “2008 Best of: Unauthorized” issue of the Sacramento News & Review.
