The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival announces today the second and final wave of titles for their upcoming 2022 edition, presented by Shudder, running October 13th to the 20th with screenings held at Nitehawk Cinema Williamsburg and Williamsburg Cinemas.

The 7th edition of New York City’s celebrated genre event will close with the U.S. Premiere of the “straight cut” of Gaspar Noé’s IRREVERSIBLE, also a highlight of the festival’s Fear In Focus: French Extremity sidebar, coinciding with the film’s 20th anniversary, and will spotlight Charlotte Le Bon’s supernatural coming-of-age feature debut FALCON LAKE — hot off of its North American premiere at TIFF — as Centerpiece. In addition, BHFF is proud to host a special event screening of the new genre anthology GIVE ME AN A. Executive produced by Natasha Halevi, member of the celebrated female horror filmmaker group Fatale Collective, who premiered their own anthology, BLEED, at Brooklyn Horror in 2019, all proceeds from the screening will be donated to The New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF) to help provide access to reproductive services. GIVE ME AN A was conceived following the devastating overturning of Roe v. Wade in America and features a star-studded cast that includes Alyssa Milano (Charmed), Virginia Madsen (SIDEWAYS), Gina Torres (THE MATRIX franchise), Milana Vayntrub (WEREWOLVES WITHIN), Jennifer Holland (Peacemaker), Sean Gunn (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films), Molly C. Quinn (Castle), Jason George (Grey’s Anatomy), and Jackie Tohn (GLOW), and the screening will be followed by a moderated discussion on reproductive rights with attending filmmakers, producers, and cast. For more information on NYAFF visit www.nyaaf.org.

Wave two adds even more exciting world premieres to the slate, including a special free screening for BHFF audiences to enjoy of Tubi’s TERROR TRAIN remake; INFLUENCER, the latest from BHFF 2019 alum Kurtis David Harder; and the hand-drawn animated horror THE WEIRD KIDZ, directed by Lucky McKee’s longtime editor Zach Passero.

Additional highlights from the final wave include the festival’s previously mentioned Fear In Focus: French Extremity sidebar – not for the weak of heart! — featuring the U.S. premiere of the new HD remaster of Fabrice Du Welz’s revered feature debut CALVAIRE, and the complete Slayed program of LGBTQ+ horror, featuring Michelle Garza Cervera’s two-time Tribeca winning HUESERA; Kyra Gardner’s LIVING WITH CHUCKY documentary; Carter Smith’s skin-crawling horror-thriller SWALLOWED; and a special screening of Brian Yuzna’s SOCIETY presented in conjunction with the book launch of It Came From The Closet, edited by Joe Vallese.

The complete shorts line-up for BHFF 2022, including two blocks of the festival’s signature, locally-made-horror Home Invasion section, rounds out the announcement alongside this year’s special events.
