Shorts Block: Homegrown Horror Chapter V: (Un)Safe Spaces

Buy Tickets

shorts-JOLIELAIDE

For five years strong, BUFF’s Homegrown Horror has proudly boosted the signal for emerging voices in our region, sharing frightening visions wrested from the minds of our indigenous creators. Over that time, we’ve witnessed homespun talent sidestep genre comfort zones to deliver delightfully diabolical tales, shattering the illusion of New England’s picturesque tranquility in the process. Our latest installment is the most unique assortment yet, a spine-tingling array of ghastly sights and sounds. Prepare for a convention-defying, anxiety-inducing mixtape for the terror-philic, courtesy of your nor’eastern neighbors.
– Chris Hallock
