A frightfest between a couple who hold a housewarming party to learn their wonderful new neighbors has resulted in the first wave of titles.

A gorefest about a stunt-driven video blogger by directors Joseph Winter and Vanessa Winter also includes scenes for Andrew Semans' Resurrection.

"2022 has already proved to be an exceptional year in cinema, so it's only fitting that this year we return the festival to the big screen," said festival co-director Michael Lerman in a statement.

Overlook, which will last four days from June 2 to June 5, has also reserved Pete Ohs' Jethica, Jen Luc Herbulot's Saloum from Senegal, and Peter Strickland's Flux Gourmet.
