BEYOND FEST Is Back With A Vengeance! Oct 1st-12th!

For the last 2 years, Beyond Fest has been one of the best film festivals to properly kick off the Halloween season, and with this announcement video (which could be my favorite promo for a film fest ever), this year promises to be the biggest and baddest of them all! The video, which features a scene from Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING in French revealing the full line-up of films, events and guests via sub-titles, includes things like an EVIL DEAD double feature with star Bruce Campbell and filmmaker Edgar Wright, the 1925 version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA with a live score, Die Antwoord’s Ninja and friends hosting a screening of ERASERHEAD, a Fabio Frizz performance (his first ever in the United States) paired with THE BEYOND, premieres for THE MIND’S EYE, BONE TOMAHAWK, LEGEND, and much, much more.

For tickets, visit BeyondFest.com. Below you’ll find the announcement video and full schedule! We’ll see you there!
