Independent horror filmmaker Leif Jonker (DARKNESS) has teamed with Regal Cinemas to spread big-screen nightmares throughout America via a month-long HorrorFest of genre favorites in October. They’re showing 12 classic scary movies, including Synapse Films’ exclusive 4K restoration of Dario Argento’s SUSPIRIA (pictured), at 42 theaters in 24 states; read on for the complete schedule and list of venues!

Jonker, who has been screening classic fright fare for the past six years at his October at the Oldtown shows in Wichita, KS, gave us the full rundown of HorrorFest, which takes place on 10 Mondays and Tuesdays beginning October 2 and winding up on Halloween night. There are both single-feature and double-feature shows, and admission is just $5 for the singles and $10 for the doubles.
