A screeeeam!

Horror film fans can get three straight days of shivers at the Telluride Horror Show with dozens of feature films and short films shown at the Sheridan Opera House and Nugget Theatre.

Among the feature films on this year’s schedule is “Chemical Peel,” which was directed by Fruita Monument High School grad Hank Braxtan.

It’s “the harrowing story of a group of women who become trapped in their isolated country home due to toxic spill. ... It’s not long before paranoia has the women at each other’s throats,” says a news release from 17 Road, an independent production company.
