The line-up of the 68th Venice International Film Festival, which runs August 31st to September 10th, 2011, has been announced; and as usual, we were pleased to see a few genre films included. Read on for the details.
“Guilty Pleasures” just about sums them up, but if you happen to be a fan of the output of director Brian Yuzna and producer Julio Fernandez’s now retired Fantastic Factory label, then count yourself in luck as Arrow Video will be releasing a four-film set in the UK on April 18th entitled – you guessed it – Fantastic Factory Presents! From the Press Release:
The name Moritz Bleibtreu might not roll off your tongue, but no doubt you've seen his work in such widely divergent films as Run Lola Run, Munich, and (my personal favorite) Das Experiment. Interestingly, as Das Experiment undergoes an American remake, Bleibtreu is about to embark on a redux of his own: The classic German legend Faust with director Oskar Roehler at the helm.
