Chattanooga Film Fest is Going to Frighten Your Ass Off on 10/13!

CFF2023Friday the 13th just got a little bit luckier, because on October 13th, 2023 acclaimed genre festival The Chattanooga Film Festival will host a resurrection for their popular Halloween horror event, the Frightening Ass Film Fest, in the form of the virtually-presented FRIGHTENING ASS MOVIE MARATHON.

Though similar in scope to the fan-favorite CFF event that has featured an eclectic mix of horror programming from all eras, the Frightening Ass Movie Marathon (FAMM) will take a hint from the popularity of CFF 2023’s nightly Red Eye Screenings and keep the included films a mystery to ticket holders until the viewing window opens.

As with the Red Eye Screenings, the titles will be obscure hidden gems and bizarre curiosities. Three secret selections will be shown, with a fourth also available as a bonus to the festival’s Patreon Double Secret Cinema Society members.


Each film will feature an accompanying Watch Party via the festival’s Discord server; between movies, guests can also participate in spooky games with equally spooky prizes and even learn to make freakishly fun movie snacks courtesy of Final Girls Feast Podcast.

Tickets for the Frightening Ass Movie Marathon are available for $20 via CFF’s Patreon page (click here to access tickets), granting access to three secret feature titles which will unlock on Friday, October 13th, 2023 at designated times throughout the event. The movies will start at 10pm EST. Subscribers to the DSCS DOUBLE SECRET SCREENING SERIES tier of CFF’s Patreon will receive access to a bonus fourth film, as well which will start at 8pm EST. Additionally, the festival is offering all Patreon subscribers (all tiers) a 50% discount on FRIGHTENING ASS MOVIE MARATHON tickets for both themselves and a friend if the friend joins the Patreon at the $10 tier or above. Details will be available on the DSCS Discord Channel!
