And the festival lineup announcements just keep on coming.
If you live in England and you want to hold on to that warm, cuddily feeling that only genre film can provide then book your ticket to Nottingham next month for the Mayhem Film Festival.
The fest have announced their full lineup today and there is a metric tonne of genre goodness in it. Along with the previously announced UK premieres of Headshot and The Void the Mayhem faithful will also see tremendous films like I Am Not A Serial Killer and Kurasowa Kiyoshi's Creepy. Then there is the experimental eroticism of We Are The Flesh countered by the incredible oddity The Greasy Strangler. Mike Mendez's (Big Ass Spider) new film with the Dolph Lundgren, Don't Kill It, will screen on closing day. There will also be retro screenings of Bava's Planet of the Vampires and H.G. Lewis' Blood Feast.
