A revealing, intimate documentary from veteran actor-insider Ruben Pla, The Horror Crowd spotlights the Hollywood horror community, covering & discussing such wide-ranging topics as Women In Horror, Race Relations, Being The Weird Kid, Helping Each Other, Film Festivals, and The Dark Side. Together, this “crowd” dishes on horror creators, actors and fans. They also discuss why they chose (and still choose) to be involved with the horror genre and its community. Despite the dark and scary implications of the genre, the community behind it is rather warm and generous amongst its own; a chosen family bonded by living their lives as weird kids and outliers. The Horror Crowd is directed by actor / filmmaker Ruben Pla (you can also follow him @rubenjpla), making his feature directorial debut with this film after a few other shorts previously. It’s produced by Arielle Brachfeld, Sonny Dyon, Eric Miles, and Ruben Pla. This initially premiered at the 2020 Grimmfest in the UK a few years ago. Buffalo 8 will debut Ruben Pla’s The Horror Crowd doc direct-to-VOD in the US starting September 2nd, 2022 coming up. Who’s interested in this?
