Hey LA Genre Hounds! Check Out Beyond Fest 2015's Full Slate

With a stat like "the highest attended genre film festival in the US," Beyond Fest has every right to call itself LA's biggest Genre Festival. Well the good folks at all the wonderful organizations that put on Beyond Fest (that would be American Cinematheque, Meltdown Comics, Death Waltz Recording Co. and the Alamo Drafthouse's Fantastic Fest) have just announced their lineup for this year's editions and it's a good one.

The festival takes place October 1 to 12 at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre. There are a ton of cool events and even more great flicks (including a bunch for free). Check out the full list below and let us know if you'll be making it out.
