For over a decade tickets to the Heavy Hitting HorrrFest have sold out in days and every year a lot of people get left out in the cold because they procrastinated or figured “Someone will save me one.”

What first attracted Heavy Hitting HorrorFest co-founder Chili Thom to the giant silver ball was that it opened up to reveal a secret compartment that could hold six shot glasses.

“And the first ever King of Horror is…. a Queen! Lauren Graham wins with Hagridden.”
That was the announcement after the very first Heavy Hitting HorrorFest back in 2002. Held Halloween night at Whistler’s GLC bar, a few hundred costumed horror fans had sat through just over two hours of really random shit (one film included a four-minute scene where a guy dumps milk on himself and voice-over narrates some kind of forlorn love poem) but in the end there could be only one.

The truth is, and this is no secret, everyone needed a break.
After ten solid years of Green Jesuses, vagina-faced aliens, axe murderesses, FrankenMosquitos, whiskey orgies, ass grabbers, brain stabbers and zombie skateboarders it was time to take a breather and let the brain/body/soul catch up to the pantshittingly awesome decade of savage degradation that we’d all been so happily wallowing in.
And the break was good. The organizers are recharged and all the usual suspects are in place. The Whistler filmmakers are ready to wade back into it– they know how much it sucks to have to clean red food colouring out of a rental suite shower but they’re ready to do it and more, because Heavy Hitting HorrorFest is the best night of the year.
We’ve also got submissions coming in from all over the planet (apparently B-Grade horror is huge in Spain right now) and everything is coming together to ensure this train of bloody, fleshy violence keeps rolling on into the night.
We’ve got a new website. You know that because you are on it right now. Please stick around, come back as often as you can. Also, if you haven’t already please “like” our stupid fucking faceboook page. You are not alone. Heavy Hitting HorrorFest is a community, a tribe of deranged freaks and hedonistic savages that love tits and blood and bootfucking taboos just as much as you do, maybe even more.
The point is, Heavy Hitting Horrorfest was, is, and always will be about having fun, making movies and talking your friends or significant others into doing shower scenes for free. And now we’re fucking back.
The classic B-Grade Throwdown is back but we’re trying to add more mayhem, more films, more fun. Heavy Hitting HorrorFest is mutating into something larger, louder and stuffed with more balls-to-the-wall awesomeness than ever before.
Put your diapers on and call in sick to work- because right now, this exact moment, marks the countdown to The Return of Heavy Hitting HorrorFest.
October 30, 2013. Whistler BC. “We’re Baaaacckkk.”
