Leif Jonker’s passion for horror is so strong it’s scary.
Known for directing the made-in-Wichita vampire film “Darkness” in 1988 (the film went on to a be a cult hit), Jonker has taken it upon himself to organize a horror film festival in Wichita — again.
For the second year, October at the Old Town Horror Festival will present four classic horror movies curated by Jonker throughout the month of October. Here they are, all at the Warren Old Town:Monday and Tuesday: “The Thing”
Tickets for all shows are $5.
The festival, which is sponsored by the Warren Old Town, Clear Neon, 104.5 the Fox and We Know Motion, is a fundraising benefit for Mosaic Homeless Outreach, which helps and feeds area homeless people.
And look for the festival program guide that will run in Friday’s Eagle.
