The 2010 Shaun Luu Horror Fest will take place Friday, June 11 to Sunday, June 13, with all raised funds to benefit the Westcott Community Center and Upstate Medical University and Golisano Children's Hospital.
The 2009 Shaun Luu Horror Fest completed a pledge of $10,000 to Upstate Golisano Children's Hosptial in memory of Shaun Luu. Shaun died in 2005 at 23 after a long battle with brain cancer. The horror movie/ music festival raised $5,840, which included a $1,775 contribution from the Palace Theatre, a host of the film festival. The latter gift represents a portion of the proceeds from the theatre's monthly "Brew & View" 35mm themed film series.
This year's events kick off at 6:30 p.m. on June 11 with a six-band bill at the Westcott Community Center, followed by horror films at The Palace Theatre from noon, Saturday, June 12 until 5 a.m. Sunday, June 13, followed by an afterparty hosted by the Half Penny Pub in Armory Square at midnight.
