EVENT REPORT: SWEATSHOP at the NYC Horror Film Festival

When the Hammer Falls… It’s Gonna Hurt          Imagine my surprise when X and I arrived at the Tribeca Cinema on Bowery Street in NYC, and it looked just like a bar.  No lit-up marquee, no ticket booth, nobody selling popcorn.  No throngs of horror fans at the ready for the NYC […]
