The GuignolFest 72-Hour Movie Contest is open to all Portlanders and frightening, forward-looking, and innovative horror-film freaks creeping around in the Portland area!

Screening happens at The Clinton Street Theater, Sunday, October 28 at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm. Costumes encouraged at GuignolFest! It’s just more thrilling that way. 

$15 Advance Tickets Available!!!

TICKETS ARE SOLD THROUGH GUIGNOLFEST AND NOT THE THEATER, so please talk to them if you have questions about your purchase.
