Some of the biggest names behind modern horror will be featured in ‘The Bleeding Edge: A New Generation of Horror’ panel at this year’s SXSW Conference and Festivals. Horror is expanding across platforms and moving from theatrical to broadcast to on-demand to digital to mobile. This forward-looking panel discusses how the genre is allowing fans to connect anywhere, anytime and digital.
The lineup will include award-winning producer and founder of Blumhouse Productions, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, Saw, and Happy Death Day), writer/producer/creator/actor Vera Miao (Two Sentence Horror Stories), writer/producer Steven Susco (The Grudge 1 & 2, Texas Chainsaw 3D), and writer/producer/actor Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious).
Leigh Whannell is currently in post-production on his original sci-fi thriller, Upgrade, that he wrote and directed for Blumhouse/Goalpost Pictures. The film will premiere at SXSW and will be released on June 1, 2018.
The panel will be in the Austin Convention Center (500 E. Cesar Chavez) in room 18ABCD on Saturday, March 10th, 2 pm-3 pm.
