Twin Cities Horror Festival V: Why I Love TCHF (and Review Roundup)

I LOVE the Twin Cities Horror Festival, now in its fifth year and here's why:

- Manageable size (ten shows, plus a few one-night events)
- Runs a reasonable amount of time (October 27 through November 6, 2016)
- Only one theater (The Southern Theater)
- Which has a bar (with excellent beer)
- That theater space is appropriately atmospheric (plus, this year the lobby is beautifully decorated by Katie Hartman of The Coldharts)
- Their website rocks: Simple, organized and featuring genres and ratings
- The staff and volunteers are welcoming, friendly and efficient

Oh, and I almost forgot: IT'S ALL ABOUT HORROR. I didn't think my favorite time of year could get any more favorite. Thanks, TCHF!
