Are you thinking about writing a horror film but aren¹t sure where to begin? Don¹t be afraid, because, for the next Conversations in Film event, Austin Film Festival is bringing in horror scribes Tom Holland and Alvaro Rodriguez.

Tom Holland has written several certified horror classics like CHILD¹S PLAY, PSYCHO II, and the beloved original version of FRIGHT NIGHT. Alvaro Rodriguez has proven his expertise in genre writing with recent cult favorites MACHETE and FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 3.

Join in as these two filmmakers pick each other¹s brains while talking about films that have influenced them and how the genre has changed over the years. From adapting Stephen King novels to carrying on the grindhouse tradition, these two filmmakers have experience to spare and several stories to share.
