Welcome to 2020, where Horror and Politics are pretty much indistinguishable. We all have a lot of anxiety right now, sometimes for actual reasons. I want to say, you’re doing OK, this is actually hard. And you know what, I think it’s OK to take your mind off of things sometimes. And that’s the idea behind our first Virtual Film Festival here at Movie Valhalla. For the next couple weeks, we’re going to feature both horror movies, for Halloween, and movies with political themes, for the Election a few days later. We’ve announced our slate of films that we’re going to hang out with over the next few weeks, and we’ll hope you’ll watch with us in our first Virtual Film Festival!

We’re also holding our first Watch Party on Friday night. We invite everyone to watch the Vincent Price camp classic The House on Haunted Hill with us on Friday night, using Amazon Watch Party. You can go here to sign up, or get the link from our Facebook page that we’ll post just prior to the movie. You may not feel comfortable going to the movies these days, but we can still watch movies together. Join us at 9:30pm EDT/6:30pm PDT on Friday, October 23.

Here is the lineup for the Virtual Film Festival:
