Overlook 2017 Preview: 8 Unmissable Events from the Inaugural Horror Extravaganza
We've been counting down the days to the Overlook Film Festival since it was first announced as the successor to the ridiculously awesome Stanley Film Festival. Now that time is finally here as the fest kicks off tomorrow at the historic Timberline Lodge outside of Portland, Oregon. We've combed the program and there are all kinds of awesome films and events taking place (you can still find pass and ticket info here). We've struggled to narrow down all of the fun but here are just eight of the unmissable events happening if you are working on building your schedule now.
Opening Night Film
Akiva Goldsman is certainly best known as a go-to Hollywood big budget screenwriter (he won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind). But Goldman has taken a turn in the big chair once before with 2014's Winter's Tale. He also executive produced Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4 for Blumhouse and it's this collaboration that brings us to his second feature directorial outing in Stephanie. The supernatural thriller stars young Shree Crooks as an orphan girl with supernatural powers and Anna Torv and Frank Grillo as her new parents (or are they?), in for a big surprise.
