Time for Northwest Horror Fans to be updated on all the Horror Happenings under The Shadow Over Portland!

Well, it's been a couple of hard weeks at the day job, which means I've been a bit lax with current events.  While this update is full of spooky goodness, check out the Horror Calendar, as some pretty AWESOME events are coming later in the year, stuff that any Horror Fan will want to mark on their calendar.

And, as I have a three day weekend coming up, expect more events coming your way!

But, if you are looking for something creepy during the next week, here's your update for the events happening under The Shadow Over Portland.


Submissions are being accepted for the PDXtreme Fest, 3 days of horror, crime, gore and more at the the Academy Theater (7818 SE Stark) in Portland, OR, December 2 through 4 this year.  You can find more details on how to enter your film at the Facebook Event Page.


Mental Trap Escape Room Game invites you, and four to ten members, to escape a locked room in one hour.  And yes, it is timed.  Created by the devious minds behind 13th Door Haunted House, Glowing Greens Miniature Golf and Haunted Productions, this offers you the challenge to find the clues keeping you locked in the room and escape within an hour.  But, as the website suggests, it's not as easy as it sounds.  Located at 3855 SW Murray Blvd in Portland, OR, you can challenge your wits (and those of your team mates) to solve the puzzle before time expires.  I don't know what happens if you don't succeed, but that's part of the fun.  For more details, visit the link.

Friday, March 4

Grab your boomstick and head to the Central Cinema (1411 21st Ave) in Seattle, WA, for a screening of Army of Darkness.  The feature plays through March 9, so visit the link for more details and showtimes.


The Horror Darling of the Sundance Film FestivalThe Witch, opens tonight at The Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE Sandy Blvd) in Portland, OR.  I've heard mixed about it, but I plan to see it and suggest Portland Horror Fans take a look.  More details, and advance ticket sales, are available at the link.


Dark City, a freaky sci-fi/horror/noir film, screens at The Laurelhurst Theater and Pub (2735 E Burnside) in Portland, OR, this week.  More details, and showtimes, can be found at the link.


Nesting, a four part semi-improvised stage performance, opens tonight at The Shoebox Theatre (2110 SE 10th Ave) in Portland, OR.  Created by Joel Patrick Durham, this production is described as a cross between Friends and The Shining, "original, live, and just scripted enough to be dangerous."  Sounds good to me!  For more details, and advance ticket sales, visit the link.  

Wednesday, March 9

The Joy Cinema and Pub (11959 SW Pacific Highway) in Tigard, OR, keeps up the Weird Wednesday tradition with a screening of The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues tonight at 9:15 pm.  Okay, it's the standard story, a mutated monster leaving a trial of radioactive corpses in in wake, but the film is FREE, opening your wallet for more goodies and beer at the concession stand.  As always, you must be 21 or older to attend.  For more details, visit the link later in the week.

Thursday, March 10

Well, one can debate if Heathers is a horror tale or not, but a musical version of the 1988 pitch black comedy seems to be worth mentioning.  This Portland premiere of this musical production takes place at triangle productions! (1785 NE Sandy Blvd) in Portland, OR, through April 2.  Showtimes and advance ticket sales are available at the link.


Remember, listing your Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy event on The Shadow Over Portland is FREE!  Just sent me an email at and I'll include it on the Horror Calendar and my weekly updates.  

And, should you attend any of these events, let the organizers know you read about it at The Shadow Over Portland!
