Trailer for Horror Convention Documentary FANTASM released

282891_354940871271683_2062984782_nFANTASM is a documentary by Kyle Kuchta about horror conventions and the people who attend them.

At 15, Kyle’s parents took him to his first horror convention. The one thing he looked forward to most was attending the next convention. Now he’s revisiting these conventions to learn why these gatherings are so important to horror fans. FANTASM is about the horror community and the passion they have for the genre.


“Fantasm was filmed over six conventions, and I felt myself growing closer and closer to the genre that we all love so much,” says Kuchta. “It means a lot to be able to share that love with people, and that’s what Fantasm is all about.”

In addition to a variety of devoted fans, Fantasm features insight from popular horror actors and filmmakers, including Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and more.

Filmmaker Kyle Kuchta presents the official trailer and it can be viewed via YouTube.

With production complete, Kuchta is currently focused on editing Fantasm. The documentary will be submitted to film festivals in the US this Autumn, with an official premier to be announced. An abridged version of the film was actually screened for free on May 4th at Syracuse University’s Shemin Auditorium as part of the school’s Class of 2013 Film Showcase.

As a huge horror fan myself I will certainly be looking out for this.
