Our Story

Welcome back to the movies!  Leon Kelly and Dan Lingamfelter will be your hosts on this terrifying journey through horror cinema. And while they are not brothers in the traditional sense, they DEFINITELY consider themselves brothers in blood as medical examiners and forensic pathologists sharing a life-long love of horror movies. 
 
Dan and Leon grew up in the flickering, VHS-fueled light of 80’s slashers and B-movie monsters.  They speak the language of all things gore and cherish the communal screams of a darkened movie theater.  It has been an ongoing dream of theirs to share their joy of watching horror movies -- sometimes truly amazing and life-changing films, and sometimes absolute schlock, but always incredibly fun and memorable experiences -- with their family and friends.
 
A little over 10 years ago, Leon held the first horror fest at his remote cabin, deep in the woods of the Rocky Mountains, with Dan and a hard-core group of very brave friends.  They watched the most terrifying movies they could unearth over that weekend.  Eating, drinking, and much merriment was had as they shared stories of the creepiest and most memorable movie moments of their lives.  They built a small band of comrades whose lives had been touched by these shared movie experiences.  Dan also ran with this idea, and both Leon and he have alternated co-hosting events for the past 10 years ... each adding their own shenanigans, escalating the insanity of the scares, and transitioning the experience from just watching horror movies to actually immersing themselves in one.  Over the past decade they’ve built a cult following of companions who love scary movies and are crazy enough to follow these two bald men into the woods where, as every horror fan discovers, almost anything can happen.
 
The Six Feet Under Horror Fest is the culmination of a life-long passion for horror movies and a reflection of the core belief that life is best lived in a dark theater, surrounded by your best friends, laughing, screaming, and getting the ABSOLUTE holy crap scared out of you!!!
 
We have such sights to show you ... and again, welcome to our family!
