Revered as a “Top 100 Film Festival” by FilmFreeway and “One of the Best Horror Film Festivals in the World” by Dread Central, Nevermore Film Festival is a leader among the world’s genre festivals, gaining popularity and prominence since its inception in 1999. Nevermore has announced their lineup for their 23rd film festival weekend, set to begin over the final weekend in February.
