FEARnyc 2016 Interview: ‘Don’t F*ck In The Woods’: Shawn Burkett & Chris Gierowski

Last night was the first night of the FEARnyc film festival in New York City, and along with screening several classic and new horror films, it also hosted the world premiere of Shawn Burkett’s Don’t Fuck in the Woods.
