In this time of holiday frivolity, are you ready for a little scare? How about a three days of chills and thrills? Then you should check out the R.I.P. Horror Film Fest taking place Dec. 6 through 8 at Cal State Long Beach.

The festival's goal is to bring the best of classic and contemporary independent horror films from around the world, and the founders are committed to become, "LA's New Home for Horror."

Focused on independent horror film, the festival provides a place for young talented film makers to showcase their work to the public.

Whether you are a horror film fan or not, you have to acknowledge the importance the genre plays in society. Often, the genre sees a resurgence when a community or culture is under a great deal of stress. The horror genre allows the people to express their fears and angst in a safe environment. "There are numerous horror conventions and film fests every weekend, all around the country, and even all around the world," claims the festival's website, "and the R.I.P. Horror Film Festival feels the more, the scarier."
