Fright Night Film Festival spooks Timmins again this October

Eddie Levesque speaks in terms of “we” when he talks about the Night Terrors Film Festival in Timmins.  In truth, he’s a committee of one.

He won’t disclose which films are on Fridays at midnight coming this October, until an official announcement on August 6th.

But last year’s line-up speaks to the quality of horror films he screens.

“Last year, I had Jaws.  We had The Thing.  We also had Lost Boys, which was crazy popular, which threw me right off,” Levesque says.  “And the last week of last year was Poltergeist.  In the past we’ve done The Exorcist, we’ve done Nightmare on Elm Street.  Anything big, we’ve done, basically.”

Asked why he started the festival three years ago, Levesque says it’s just because he’s a big horror movie fan.

“I always wanted to go to one of these festivals,” he comments.  “It never came to our area.  I don’t think there’s been any in Northern Ontario, to be honest with you.  So just being a fan, I wanted to bring my own and finally be able to attend it.”

The Night Terrors festival happens every Friday in October at midnight at Cinema Six.

Levesque says strong corporate support allows him to keep admission at five dollars, and donate proceeds to charity.  This year, they’ll go to Living Space.
