NY1 VIDEO: For the first time this year, genre stories are being presented at the 53rd New York Film Festival. Short films with the subjects of horror, suspense and fantasy are shown right alongside blockbusters, retrospectives and world premieres. In this On The Town report, NY1’s George Whipple chats with "How To Be a Villain" director Helen O'Hanlon and Sânge director Percival Arguero Mendoza.

NOTE: If horror movies are your thing, well, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is going to have 'Scary Movies' starting Halloween weekend.
