(Pre) Ask Me a Question: Beyond Fest 2014

Oh shit, the full schedule for Beyond Fest finally dropped this week.  After months of rumors, wish lists, false starts and triumphs, Christian Parkes and his genre movie loving crew will begin their two week assault on Los Angeles filmgoers on Thursday, 9.25 with Horns, the Daniel Radcliffe starring murder mystery.  After last year's premiere/takeover of The American Cinematheque's Egyptian and Aero Theatres that included cult progressive rock band Goblin playing Los Angeles for the first time in their decades spanning career and guests like Richard Donner and Clive Barker, Beyond Fest is going all out to avoid the sophomore slump.  No less than 30 films and shorts are slated to screen and partnerships with Fantastic Fest, Shock Til You Drop, The ElRey Network, Backstory, Bloody Disgusting, Death Waltz Records and Meltdown Comics show that the Fest is not one to be trifled with or missed.

So far titles include first looks at the creepy looking Jake Gylenhall thriller Nightcrawler, V/H/S Viral and the Los Angeles premiere of Hollywood Satanic cult flick Starry Eyes.  On the repertory front, you've got The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Fight Club, Monster Squad and a 4K restoration of Halloween!  Guests so far include the likes of Bourne Legacy writer turned director Dan Gilroy, John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, DC Comics honcho Jim Lee and many, many more.  See you there!
