Shockfest Film Festival is coming to New York City’s Times Square on July 27th with horror icons Malcolm McDowell and Elvira. Okay, why though? Because the 12 year running Film Festival will be holding their online broadcast on the evening of July 27th from Times Square, New York City at 8:30pm (EST) – 10:30pm (EST).

Legendary actor Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Star Trek Generations, Bolt) will introduce audiences to the World of Shockfest. The Macabre Mansion experience is part escape room, part variety showcase and part highlight of submitters of Shockfest Film Festival. Included in this showcase is the Iconic Horror Host, Elvira who will be presenting the Woman of Horror award to one lucky Shockfest filmmaker.  Each virtual room of the Mansion will introduce visitors to a variety of femme fatale female vampires, all of whom will showcase a new section of the mansion leading you to the Grand Finale in Times Square, where the Shockfest Portal will open and manifest the haunted building into the heart of New York City.
