Beyond Fest Is Back!
Oh, how they grow up so fast. Just last year Beyond Fest was merely a new born suckling at the crusty teet of its six-headed mother from Mars (they need moms). And now, it's walking and talking and throwing shrunken voodoo heads around in the zero-g room (we never should have built that godforsaken place!)

Yes, folks, Los Angeles' Beyond Fest, our fractal city's new champ when it comes to top notch genre fare from around the globe, is happening at the American Cinematheque at The Egyptian, September 25 - October 4. Basically what I am saying is, even though I am going to Fantastic Fest, you might as well stay put and just go to Beyond, because it too, is fantastic (I'm gonna get in trouble for this post, aren't I?).

The fest opens with Alexander Aja's Horns, which stars some sickly looking kid named Daniel Radcliffe. Dan Gilroy will also be there with his nutty looking Nightcrawler. Gilroy will then talk to Fight Club author Chuck Palaniuk, but before that it's David Fincher's Fight Club. From our pals in Japan, Tokyo Tribe and R100 screen, as does the body-horror sensation of 2014 Starry Eyes, the much buzzed about The Editor and Irish ghost story The Canal. Plus Norway, which is from Greece.

There is so much more good stuff in order, including a screening of Halloween with John Carpenter and Jaime Lee Curtis in person, so check out the whole lineup below!
