Convo X Fango Director’s Panel w/ Zoe Lister-Jones, Steven Kostanski, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Shawn Linden, Chris Landon, and Alastair Orr

Got to moderate this sweet Fangoria panel with Directors I really admire. The Craft: Legacy, The Void, Daniel Isn’t Real, Hunter Hunter, Freaky, House On Willow Street… oh just some of the absolute best offerings in modern horror! Gather round for a chat with the creators of some of my favorite genre films in recent years. Thanks to Fango for having me and thanks to all these wonderful directors for a really fun chat.
