Zachary Beckler’s Interior Wins Grand Jury Prize for Best Horror Film at Shriekfest


We’re happy to hear that Interior won the Grand Prize Jury Award for the Best Horror Film at Shriekfest.  We were impressed with the movie which was filmed with a budget of only around $12,000.  The audience reaction was great and they actually said in the Q&A that it was one of the scariest movies they have seen in a long time.
