On July 19th attendees of this year's Fantasia Film Fest have a chance to view the director’s cut of the 1986 film Combat Shock. This rare screening of the original 16mm answer print will be hosted by writer/director Buddy Giovinazzo. What better way to prepare than by checking out Trembles' take on the film?
For a while it looked like the movie adaptation of Stephen King's Cell had gone to development hell to die, but today brings word that the project has been given a new lease on life ... as a television miniseries.
The third day of Fantasia we woke up late, primed for a weekend full of incredible screenings. First up was the Tremors meets Eight Legged Freaks giant bug invasion flick Infestation.

It’s been an insomnia inducing start to Fantasia’s thirteenth year. The opening night screenings had no noteworthy horror entries, so Paul and I spent the evening reconnecting with festival regulars, watched some non-genre movies, and plotted the next three weeks of cinematic mayhem.

Grace is a film that we've covered extensively here at Dread Central with interviews, news updates, and reviews (check out the film's database here). But of course no coverage is complete without hearing from our resident curmudgeon, Rick Trembles.
While we wait for the schedule for Fantasia 2009 to be finalized, we did receive a couple of press release announcing the fest's line-up, and per usual, those of you who are planning to attend are in for one helluva genre extravaganza.
