SAN ANTONIO — Are scary movies your thing? If so, grab your popcorn and plan to enjoy a movie night with a new film festival in the comfort of your home during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Terror High Film Festival is a "horror-themed online film festival" premiering from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, October 17.

It's being organized by a few of the organizers of Comic Con events who formed a new non-profit organization, Association of Creative Multimedia Partners.

Jesus Hernandez, Garrett Killian and Austin Rogers are the virtual event's three directors. They are behind the non-profit organization, which aims to "partner with creative professionals that educate and celebrate art through various multimedia channels."

Terror High is designed for viewers ages 13 years old and up. We're told it will be hosted by a spookily, fun animated character named "Johnny Bones."

Although the prizes for this year are trophies, the competition was free to enter. The categories included are: Best Practical/Special Effects, Best Director and Best Feature.

Entrants competed in three formats:

  • Extended Length Short films — between 26 to 59 minutes
  • Short films — between 10 to 25 minutes
  • Super Short films — less than 10 minutes
