The 2010 New York City Horror Film Festival will feature a slasher legend and a slasher musical. Robert Englund will receive this years Lifetime Achievement Award on November 13th, at 10:00 P.M. After the ceremony there will be a special screening of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street. Englund will also attend a genre panel with Bill (Maniac) Lustig on November 14th at 1:00 P.M.
Vincent D’Onofrio’s slasher musical Don’t Go in the Woods will be screened November 12 at 9:00 P.M. D’Onofrio will attend the screening and the after-party will feature live performances showcasing music from the film. Don’t Go in the Woods has yet to find a distributor, so this screening will provide slasher fans with an excellent opportunity to see this very different take on the slasher genre.
