The 18th annual Nevermore Film Festival is poised to swoop into the Carolina Theatre of Durham from Feb. 24-26 2017. Nevermore debuted in 1999 as a juried film fest featuring feature-length and short films from the macabre genre. There’s a concentration on sci-fi, horror, mystery, thrillers, and dark fantasy.

Past Nevermore flicks include the powerful “13 Cameras” and “Scrawl.” The 18th annual Nevermore Film Festival boasts an array of 15 films. Programming includes “The barn,” a throwback 80s horror flick set on Halloween 1989. Sci-fi romp “2307: Winter’s Dream” gets a prims spot as a post-apocalyptic thriller. “It’s Only a Nightmare Charlie Brown” features a bevy of dark fantasy and animated shorts. “Welcome to Willits” even features Dolph Lundgren. Horror omedy “The Love Witch” looks to be a best pick, and “Gehenna -Where Death Lives” stars Lance Henriksen and Doug Jones. While Jones may be best known for his roles in “Hellboy” and “Pan’s Labryinth,” he also starred in indie horror comedy “Love in the Time of Monsters” which is riotously hilarious.

The 2017 Nevermore Film Festival programming committee consisted of chair Stacey Bell, along with Gavin Bouma, Melissa Browning, Amanda Bouma, Cookie Beyah, Derek Easley, Amanda Henry, Curtis Greeson, John McHugh, Laura Jordan, Amanda Ray, Sarah Preston, Wendy Webber, and Chris Santucci.
