Another Hole in the Head Film Festival’s 19th Edition Is Loaded with Horror and Genre Goodness

If you are a film fan who gravitates to the chilling and the challenging, and to the offbeat and the outré, you won’t want to miss what San Francisco’s Another Hole in the Head Film has in store for its hybrid 19th edition. The fest, which features such new fright-fare selections as horror anthology Satanic Hispanics and fan film Friday the 13th Vengeance: Part 2 Bloodlines, takes place in person from December 1st–December 18th, 2022 with screenings and performances set to take place at the historic Roxie Cinema, 4 Star Theatre, and Stage Werx in San Francisco, California.
