Halloween Comes Late to France at the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival
The festival has just unleashed its stellar lineup, which features a handpicked selection of the best horror films making the rounds at festivals this year, including many which haven't yet screened in Paris, including (finally!) V/H/S and John Dies at the End. They've also got a stellar repertory program, including a chance to see classics like Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 and Dario Argento's Four Flies on Grey Velvet on the big screen!
The festival will also include a number of directors in person to present their films including Xavier Gens, Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani for the ABC's of Death (coincidentally the directors of two of the strongest segments, by far), Michael J. Basset for Silent Hill: Revelation and Connor McMahon for the gory clown-slasher, Stitches.
