Halloweenapalooza is the state’s only horror film showcase.


This festival is created by horror filmmakers for horror fans.


We hope to provide an educational and entertaining visual experience for the attendees of our Festival, which showcases and celebrates the diversity of the films.


We also hope to establish a forum, where novices and seasoned veterans alike can interact and learn from one another, as well as from our array of special celebrity guests and industry professionals.


Halloweenapalooza also includes celebrity appearances, zombie walk, vendors, and a midnight screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show, and much more! It'll be guaranteed to be a fun-filled day!


Also, a paid submission gets you into the Halloweenapalooza event! We encourage filmmakers to come and speak about their films. The event will take place at the legendary & haunted Hotel Ottumwa. Lots of fun things going on this day!
