About Fright Meter Films


Fright Meter Films is an independent production company specializing in horror films for true lovers of the genre.

Fright Meter films was founded in 2016 by Troy Escamilla.  Troy has been an avid horror fan since a very early age.  In 2007,  he started the blog FrightMeter.com and founded the annual Fright Meter Awards, which exist solely to honor the year’s best in horror. The awards have gained a following among horror fans and allowed Troy to interview genre favorites such as Lin Shaye, Lucky McKee, and Pollyanna McIntosh. Currently, the Fright Meter Awards Committee consists of over fifty members who are involved in some capacity with the genre.

This year, Troy wrote, produced, and directed his very first feature film for Fright Meter Films, the 80’s throwback slasher Party Night.  It was funded via Kickstarter and was filmed this past June.
