Named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “best genre festivals in the world,” Salem Horror Fest has announced the kickoff to their sixth edition with an opening night program to be held at the Peabody Essex Museum on Thursday, April 20, 2023.

The event will honor Hollywood legend Tony Todd for his groundbreaking performance originating the iconic role of Candyman from the 1992 film and subsequent sequels in addition to his towering filmography of more than 250 credits including Night of the Living Dead, The Crow, and Final Destination with recurring roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, The Flash, 24, Stargate SG-1, and Scream: The TV Series.

Author and film critic Kier-La Janisse (House of Psychotic Women, Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror) will provide a keynote speech about the role of folklore in our history and culture followed by a special screening of the original Candyman and Q&A with Tony Todd moderated by editor and film critic  Andrea Subissati (Rue Morgue Magazine, The Faculty of Horror).

“Few people embody the commanding presence, stature, and talent that Tony does. A Hollywood legend, yes, but also an educator with an extraordinary work ethic and kind soul. It is truly an honor to welcome him to Salem,” says festival director Kay Lynch. 2023 will mark an expansive return to pre-COVID levels of production. Previous opening night events honored esteemed guests such as Cassandra Peterson and John Waters.

Salem Horror Fest, in partnership with Cinema Salem and Bit Bar, will run Thursday, April 20 through Sunday, April 30 featuring dozens of premieres, filmmakers, and special guests including Linnea Quigley, Amelia Kinkade, Geretta Geretta, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys with live podcasts Faculty of Horror and Horror Queers. General Admission, VIP Meet & Greet packages, and weekend passes are now available for purchase at salemhorror.com. Films, programs, and additional guests to be announced soon.
