      FantAsia and Screamfest, so two possibilities to see it on the big screen.

      I guess if we are not at FantAsia when it’s playing (we’ll be there from the 15th to the 18th of july), we can catch it at Screamfest maybe.

    • MagusMaleficus

      Fuck yeah!

      I think I just messed my self…excuse me, folks.

    • ImTheMoon

      YES! I’m so seeing this at Toronto After Dark!

    • Chainsaw

      I’m glad it’s going to be playing at FantAsia, but the fact that this movie’s not getting a full release is a fucking crime in my eyes. It’s good it’s coming out on DVD, but no one outside of genre fans is gonna give a fuck about it. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if Sony puts zero effort into promoting it. Dick move, Sony. Dick move.

      • Styling Shatner

        I love bashing Sony as much as the next guy, but you shouldn’t bash them for how this movie has been treated, as they have nothing to do with the film. It’s Warner Brothers which has treated it this badly. But, as it’s finally coming out I can’t really complain as much.

    • Doc Block

      Do I hear a heavenly choir playing. Thank fucking God! It’s finally coming!
