Killumbus Horror meetup at the Gateway Film Center

Bridget Oliver turned her newfound love of gory horror flicks into a Facebook discussion group. Now Bridget and her fellow gorehounds meet up in real life, too. This Saturday, they'll be chatting before an indie horror double-feature of "found." and "Headless."
