Portland's premiere all-horror genre film festival is lovingly organized by the folks behind the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival® (now in its 25th year). While the HPLFF is focussed on Cosmic and Literary horror, Portland Horror Film Festival embraces and celebrates short and feature-length films from all horror genres and from all over the world. PHFF has premiered genre-bending and trend-setting films like Nightmare Cinema (with special guest Mick Garris, director of Stephen King's The Stand and Masters of Horror), Fangoria's Satanic Panic, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (with special guest Barbara Crampton), bigfoot adventure Big Legend (with special guest Amanda Wyss from Nightmare on Elm St.), Larry Fessenden's Depraved, The Ranger, Happy Hunting, and many more. If you love horror movies, this is the only place you can see the latest independent horrors from all over the planet, including the US, Canada, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Norway, Sweden, Egypt, and even Iran.
If you like the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival, and the diverse mix of independent films we feature, there is even more to love at Portland Horror Film Festival! Come see all the ghost, vampire, zombie, haunting, stalker, supernatural and folk horror, and monster movies that we can't show at the HPLFF!
