Halloween Horror Picture Show 2013Concept (1-10): 7
Good return to form for the 2013 Halloween Horror Picture Show.
I am looking forward to seeing the reboot of the Halloween Horror Picture Show thrive and grow. Still a great concept after all of these years.

Venue (1-10): 6
The Tampa Pitcher Show venue is hard to find! It’s even hard to find once you figure out where it is! It is now one of my life’s missions to make this cool place easier to find. The venue has character, and it is perfect for independent film festivals.
I would have scored this higher, but the difficulty in finding the place and the lack of information on how to find it really annoyed me. Come on..... The venue has been there for 30 years. I lived in the area 20 years ago, when it was 10 years old, and I had no clue that it existed.
A really cool place well worth finding.

Vendors (1-10): 4
Yes, there were independent filmmakers with independent film DVD’s and other treasures to sell. There could, and should, have been more, however. There needs to be more available to buy; I am not sure what the prices for tables are, but pricing them so that the event will attract more vendors would serve to attract more people. This said, in other ways, I would like to see this feature larger..... Much larger. Swag bags and credit card POS terminals (the latter not mentioned in the review, but it would make it easier to buy things) would be cool, too, as the point of having vendors is for people to buy things, things which are often difficult to find anywhere else.
I’m working on a plan to fix the swag bag issue, though.

Organization (1-10): 6
Organized well for the size that it is, but it would be interesting to see what would happen to this score if the event were larger, because the organization is rather laid back. Still, not bad. A film festival program “playbill” would be welcome, to let people know what is going on.

Entertainment (1-10): 8
Obviously, one of the main draws of a film festival is to be entertained, and not just by the films, in my case. I rather enjoy interacting with people, much more so than watching the films. I do love to watch films, but when there are people around, it seems like too much of a distraction, especially when you can watch the films later.

Attendance (1-10): 6
Could have been more of an attendance, but it was not bad.
More people, Danford! More people are always a good thing! I actually like meeting people, too!
I’m thinking that sponsors would allow an advertising budget, which would attract more people fluttering to the film festival flame. Facebook, or any social media for that matter, alone sucks for setting up any event. Free is often worthless, and the results are what you pay for.
The bottom line is that film festivals need to be run as a business. You not only do what you love, but the money supports resources, resources which in turn make the event better. You can even budget in some pay for yourself and others!

Features (1-10): 6
Good. The films were entertaining, and the lobby had vendors.
Still, swags bags are needed to support the sales of the vendors.

Admission Value (1-10): 7
The admission value of Halloween Horror Picture Show 2013 was good. I had fun, as did many others.

Overall Event Score (1-10): 7
A good return to form for the Halloween Horror Picture Show, as it has been missed in over the past half decade.
Worth attending and supporting.
