Congrats to 'Why Horror?' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, the expedition to uncover the psychology of horror in “Why Horror?” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Why Horror” and directors Rob Lindsay and Nicolas Kleiman. The filmmakers  will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

Here’s what the project’s about:

“WHY HORROR?” is tackling the world of horror from the fan’s perspective. Tal Zimerman — a comedian and horror junkie — created this documentary to dig deeper into the phenomenon. He has landed some impressive names (John Carpenter, George A. Romero, Eli Roth, Elvis Mitchell, and Steve Niles, among them), all of whom have embraced this project. This little movie is set to go global thanks to the support from the horror community and beyond, and we hope you’ll agree that this is an ideal project to showcase in these weeks leading up to Halloween.
