The Hollywood Film Festival and Film Threat celebrates Halloween together with the Hollywood Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Festival, taking place October 21, 22 and 23 at the Arclight in Los Angeles. The program is as follows:

Friday – October 21 – 10pm

Saturday – October 22 – 10pm

X,Y ^ Directed by Vladimir Vitkin ^ Based on the cult novel of the same name, recently dubbed as one of the best horror novels of the last 25 years, “X,Y” is a disturbing psycho-sexual fetishistic nightmare, examining sexual identity and relationships that plays like a “Freaky Friday” for adults when a stripper loses her memory and becomes inexplicably convinced that she’s a man.
