The last edition of our Molins de Rei Horror Film Festival was packed with the best horror films seen in 2016. Unfortunately, for several reasons, we were not able to include in the Feature Film Official Section many films which our programmers liked very much. This is the reason why today we want issue some information about these titles which you by no means can miss. We want you to enjoy your private horror sessions with these TerrorMolins suggestions.
