Motorcity Nightmares Film Festival Brings Ravenous Fun to Novi

Motorcity Nightmares Film Festival Brings Ravenous Fun to Novi

(Sam Gurwin, June 2, 2018)

Novi, MI – As the day wearies, the creatures began to stir. And if this were a good horror films, panning across the field of vision at the Novi Sheraton Hotel would show an eclectic crowd of the zombies, monsters and more!

People dress up as their favorite horror movie characters or other nasty creatures to come together for this frighteningly fun night. This is MOTORCITY NIGHTMARES, a yearly film festival bringing in panels discussions from those in the movie business, actors signing autographs and chatting with festival-goers, and vendors with memorabilia, books, masks and other macabre wares. It is here that films, fandom and stars from the dark realms of horror meet!

“It’s a lotta fun and we enjoy it and we love frekin’ Horror Movies” said one costumed woman. 

Legendary Actors from Malcolm McDowell to Horror Heroines like P.J. Soles were in the back autographing photos for their fans and the conference room was full of laughter as well as serious discussion about the genera of the day. Films are screened and compete for honors, with some of this year’s winners being “The Child Remains” for Best Horror Feature, “the Art of Obsession” for Best Thriller and “Baby Yaga Origins” for Best Animation.

The Novi Sheraton is always amicable to this flood of Horror Fans, with staff smiling in amusement as the regular guests and the horror attendees mingle in the main lobby. Always lively, always gory, the festival gets away again (as some Horror Villains do) to haunt us next year.

The event took place April 27-29, and is set to return April 26-28, 2019. For more information visit
