While Los Angeles routinely receives a healthy dose of genre fare from such institutions as The Cinefamily and The New Beverley, it's pretty rare to get a full-on, honest-to-goodness festival to exclusively present us with the more subversive, grotesque and just plain gnarly cinematic offerings making the rounds today. Enter Beyond Fest. Things kicks off October 9th, and run thru the 31st at both American Cinematheque locations: The Egyptian in Hollywood and The Aero in Santa Monica.

An eclectic and bold mix of L.A. premieres of 2013 festival faves and retrospectives, Beyond Fest sounds to be a most welcome addition to the slate of cinema going events in our city of angels. Already sold out, but worth a mention just to prove how cool this is looking, are the screenings of Dario Argento's Suspira, Deep Red and Tenebrae, which will feature the films' composers, prog rock band Goblin performing prior to each film.

Below you'll find our just right-of-bloody-red preview of flicks playing the fest. For more info and to purchase tickets you can click here.      

WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL (Sun, Oct 13 - 8:00pm, Egyptian Theatre)

If the above screenshot isn't enough to entice you into the screening of Sono Sion's latest than perhaps this excerpt from Todd Brown's TIFF review will:

"A genre masher that incorporates yakuza film, martial arts, liberal doses of blood, slapstick comedy and some earnest opining on the power and value of cinema delivered in a very goofy package, Sono packs enough ideas in here to fill a handful of films and yet somehow keeps it all working together in a surprisingly unified whole. It's brash, funny, sexy, unrepentently stylish, endlessly surprising and - most important of all - simply great fun."

Keep yer peepers glued to Twitch for a ticket giveaway to this mad opus.
