Beware! The New York City Horror Film Festival has descended once again upon the doomed souls of the Big Apple, a dark and sinister plague that cannot be stopped by any mere mortal!

This year promises even more gruesome visions from several independent filmmakers, screening at the Tribeca Cinemas all weekend. The Festival enjoyed an opening night bacchanal on Wednesday at downtown venue BLVD, which featured live performances by Hayley Griffiths, Witches in Bikinis and M-16 -- the festivities continue with the opportunity to bear witness to new horror movies such as 'CannibAlien,' 'Wheels of Death,' 'The Shadow Within' and a new 3-D version of F.W. Murnau's silent 1922 classic, 'Nosferatu.'
