Atlanta’s Buried Alive Film Festival makes its long-awaited return this week from March 31-April 2.
The event takes place at 7 Stages Theatre from the storied Little Five Points neighborhood. Thursday begins with the “Sinema Challenge,” a showcase where filmmakers randomly select a horror genre from a deck of cards and have 13 days to complete the movie. The remaining days feature short film blocks divided into gory topics — “Deep and Decaying,” “Bury the Hatchet,” “Flesh and Blood,” and “Unholy Unions.”
The festival has announced the feature films Duyster, What Happens Will Scare You, a retro classic screening of From Dusk Til Dawn, and Unearthed Films’s restoration of the cult classic Calamity of Snakes.
