Fantastic Fest

19 Aug

Its almost time.  In about a month, it will be time for Austin to become the center of the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror/Kung Fu world.  September 23-30, is Fantastic Fest.  Presented by the Alamo Drafthouse, Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the country.  Last year, it featured such gems as Zombieland, Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl, Bronson, House of the Devil, Solomon Kane, A Town Called Panic, Trick ‘r Treat, Yatterman, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a tribute to filmmaker Jess Franco, and so much more.

This year, the opening night film has been announced as the U.S. premiere of Let Me In, the American remake of the amazing Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In.  This year also marks the first year Fantastic Arcade is also taking place.  Hopefully doing for independent video games what Fantastic Fest has already done for independent genre films, Fantastic Arcade will feature many local and independent game developers.
