MISSION & OBJECTIVE

We're back!!

Housecore Horror Film Festival co-founder and legendary heavy metal icon, Philip H. Anselmo promises an assault of your eyes and ears that you will never forget.

Three days of horror films, live music provided by Anselmo and friends, and a complete horror weekend experience awaits you!

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Housecore Horror Festival is the brainchild of world-famous metal musician and horror film aficionado, Philip Anselmo, and best-selling true-crime author and Bloody Disgusting horror film critic, Corey Mitchell, who passed away in 2014.

The festival is Anselmo's outlet to share his hardcore passions for horror and heavy metal with his legion of fans.

Fest-goers should get ready for an experience to die for!

Three days and nights of horror films spread across two screens and three nights of heavy metal featuring Philip Anselmo and his many friends.

We screen everything from new horror releases on the festival circuit to backyard yard cellphone indie flicks. Expect a plethora of demented old classics from Anselmo's archives and a Crime Scene selection of true crime-based horror films from Mitchell's vault.

We are looking for all types of horror submissions, ranging from classic to gory to underground to funny to creepy to experimental to over-the-top and on and on. As long as it is well-written, well-shot, entertaining, repellent, and most importantly, scary as hell, we will screen it.

The 2015 Housecore Horror Festival will be three days of mayhem that Rob Zombie has already declared "damn good for horror!"
