SpookyFest begins Thurs.

The 10-day Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival begins Thursday at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring, Md., with a bigfoot film, "Willow Creek" (Pretty cool poster). Director Bobcat Goldthwait will be there. Here's your comics angle: John Dimes, a local TV personality and artist (and sometimes cartoonist) will be screening his film "Bald Headed Blues: A Doctormentary on Sarcofiguy." It's described as "the hysterical true-life story of reluctant local television pioneer and artist John Dimes and his 'charming̕' alter-ego 'Dr. Sarcofiguy' as they navigated for more than 15 years the diverse D.I.Y. worlds of modern television horror hosting with cutting edge improv, humor and wit. Featuring interviews with television hosts past and present, including Dick Dyszel ('Count Gore De Vol'), Jerry Moore II ('Karlos Borloff'), Bob Hinton ('A. Ghastlee Ghoul'), Leanna Chamish ('Boo dePest'), and narrated by New England horror host 'Penny Dreadful.'
