The Murder Kids usher in another year of pandemonium and panic! Join them for a third year of raising the dead at Screenland Armour in Kansas City, MO. Panic Film Fest brings you film showcases and fantastic events that will melt your face off! Today we launched the new website for 2015 featuring vintage Halloween masks and The Murder Kids. Our film lineup will be announced in the next few weeks – so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates!

Panic Fest is a genre film festival based in Kansas City, MO specializing in horror, thrillers, sci-fi and comic films.  The festival will be held at the historic Screenland Armour January 31 – February 2, 2015. Our lineup will be comprised of vintage cult classics and fan favorites with new and limited theatrical releases. In addition to our full-length featured film lineup we will also celebrate short films in our Short Film Showcase hosted by Slaughter Movie House. A great way to show off up and coming talent in the genres we love most. In partnership with Downright Creepy and Grundy Entertainment. Downright Creepy is one of the genre’s leading news and entertainment websites.

Between films check out a horde of vendors in the loft above the theater or grab a bite to eat at the full service bar in the historic Screenland Armour. They have over 100 craft beers to wet your whistle after running away from zombie hordes. But the fun doesn’t stop in there –  Screenland also has a classic arcade games like Gauntlet, Rampage, Mortal Kombat and more! So kick back, watch a flick, grab a beer and have a night cap in the vintage arcade. We will have contest giveaways and games all festival long. Let the Panic begin!


“Bring the kids, it’ll be a KILLER good time!”
