The original FREAK SHOW Horror Film Festival is Florida’s longest running horror fest. Starting out originally as a partner with the well-known Horror Convention Spooky Empire from 2006 until 2014, FREAK SHOW quickly gained its own following. FREAK SHOW eventually grew larger than the convention could host. This provided the opportunity to transition from Spooky Empire, into a proper theater going experience for the fans and filmmakers alike. FREAK SHOW is proud to be partnering with Orlando, Florida’s Premiere Cinemas 14.

“This has been the goal of the film festival ever since its inception. Not only is it a great feeling for the filmmakers to see their work on the big screen, but we know our true, long time fans and patrons will also enjoy the whole movie theater experience,” says FREAK SHOW Festival Founder and Executive Director Robert J. Massetti.

“We have always catered to being a place where horror fanatics feel at home, A visually visceral experience in which they are seeking a break from what is being turned out by the “big budget production companies”. Robert recalls that, “With each year fans have shown their sincerest appreciation for us continuing, stating numerous times that they are looking for something fresh and uniquely different. So many are excited to discover the next Freddy, Jason, Michael, or whatever the next big thing in horror may be. We look to fill that void generously with something for every fan!”

As always we welcome up and coming filmmakers along with veterans to join us. We feel it does a tremendous service with them attending. Not only seeing their hard work projected on the big screen to an eager audience, but having the chance to enjoy interacting with the fans. We invite you all, fans and filmmakers alike to come get freaky with us this Friday the 13th at the FREAK SHOW!


Now in its 12th year, this international horror genre film festival is the brainchild of FEAR FILM Studios Owner Robert J. Massetti. As a veteran of the industry, Robert wanted to make a film festival that celebrates independent horror by giving the artist a forum to show his or her films.

This 3 day showcase highlights the most talented filmmakers from around the world. It’s primary focus is to help creators reach their true full potential by opening up networks and visibility across the industry. The Festival screens at the PREMIERE CINEMAS 14 near the heart of Downtown Orlando, Florida. For more information, visit www.freakshowfilmfest.com
