We’ve had numerous documentaries about the horror genre, specific horror franchises, the people that make the movies, and even those that go all-out celebrating the Halloween holiday.
I’d say we’re overdue for a documentary like Fantasm that specifically focuses on horror fandom and the conventions that bring us all together.
As the tagline reads, Fantasm is “a documentary about horror fan devotion, and the events that keep them devoted.” Horror fan turned documentary filmmaker Kyle Kuchta is behind this project that talks to both the fans and the genre icons that attend these conventions for their take on what keeps the blood pumping in this particular genre of fandom.
I’ll let the press release tell you the rest.
Fantasm, a new documentary about horror conventions and the tight-knit community of fans who attend them, is currently in production under the direction of Kyle Kuchta.
