These visceral creations are raw and original in content, a far and refreshing cry from that of mainstream Hollywood. Not for the faint of heart, and a must for any horror fan. The films will be projected in high quality on a large screen and be accompanied by state of the art sound. Audience members will select by vote, the best film of the night.

This event comes to a close in glorious fashion with an award ceremony and a night of rock n’ roll mayhem. Scheduled to begin the discord is Rats Eyes – These volatile vermin come on like a buzz-saw bringing hardcore punk back to its seething roots. Headlining the frenzy is Nihilist – This is Thrash Metal in its purest form, beer slamming and head banging. This Carlsbad trio can stand alongside the best in the genre and continues to impress. Tickets will be available at the door (Queen Bee) on the night of the event. Cash Only.
