The Firehouse Film Festival returns to the Dalton (Ga.) Little Theatre this weekend with a day camp for young filmmakers and a Fright Night hosted by local spook master Dr. Shock.

The festival, taking place Friday through Sunday, July 26-28, will feature two feature-length movies and a heavy roster of short films that will be screened Saturday afternoon and evening.

Three of the Saturday titles are also part of Friday's lineup of independent horror films. In addition to Dr. Shock, Nurse Goodbody, Dingbat and Dirge will make appearances. Friday admission is $10.

General admission Saturday is $5.

The two feature-length films on the schedule are "Season of Darkness," about a mental patient who escapes from a mental asylum only to find other horrors in the outside world, and "The Blue Butterfly," about a boy terminally ill with cancer whose final wish is to find the elusive Blue Morpho butterfly.

Now in its third year, the Firehouse Film Festival offers a proving ground for regional filmmakers and a forum for their work. It is named for the DLT's home at 210 N. Pentz St., a converted former firehouse built in 1888.
