Here is the official trailer (+ poster) of Ruben Pla’s doc The Horror Crowddirectly from YouTube:
An eye-opening and intimate documentary from veteran actor Ruben Pla, The Horror Crowd shines a light on the Hollywood horror community, covering and discussing topics as varied as Women In Horror, Race Relations, Being The Weird Kid, Helping Each Other , Film Festivals, and The Dark Side. Together, this “crowd” feeds off horror creators, actors, and fans. They also explain why they chose (and still choose) to get involved with the horror genre and its community. Despite the dark and chilling implications of the genre, the community behind it is quite warm and generous among its own people; a chosen family bonded by living their lives as weird and aberrant children. The Horror Crowd is directed by an actor/filmmaker Ruben Pla (you can also follow it @rubenjpla), making his directorial debut with this film after a few other shorts before. It is produced by Arielle Brachfeld, Sonny Dyon, Eric Miles and Ruben Pla. This was originally premiered at Grimmfest 2020 in the UK a few years ago. Buffalo 8 will debut with Ruben Pla The Horror Crowd doc direct to VOD in the United States from September 2, 2022 coming. Who is interested in this?
