The leaves are still green and the air is still humid, but Count Gore De Vol will be donning his white makeup to present a special sneak preview for the Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival this weekend.

De Vol (television legend Dick Dyszel) will be hosting “Spooky Shorts,” a three-hour screening of “thirteen of the wildest short films from around the world,” at Artisphere on Saturday.

The screening starts at 8:00 p.m. in the Artisphere’s Dome Theater. Tickets are $10.

The shorts will serve as an “exclusive preview” for the 6th Annual Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival, which will be held from Oct. 13-16 this year. Additional summer spooky movie screenings are planned for Aug. 20 and Sept. 3.

      A whole 30 minutes before a cheap shot at Artisphere?

        Cheap? It’s already cost us taxpayers however many millions? Nothin’ cheap about it.

    Wow!! Saturday night @ 8. I expect no one to be there.

      That guy was ruling that timeslot before you were even born to complain about it.

      • steve85

        that’s the key “before I was born”. He is not that much of a superstar now for a 8 pm timeslot for a Saturday. Like I said, expect a cricket churping type crown.

        • Lou

          So what’s your preferred programming at 8 on Saturday nights? Cops? CSI Miami? Swamp People? Tell me, I need to know what the cool people are doing nowadays.

          • steve85

            Sorry sir but us young people don’t watch tv @ 8 on Saturday night unless we are at bars.

    Maybe the county should close Wilson between IOTA and Galaxy Hut and have this guy perform in the street. Or force IOTA and galaxy hut to close that night… More people might attend
