Fantastic Fest 2010 – Day One Photos and Reviews

Published

on

September 23rd, the first day of Fantastic Fest 2010, is already just a memory, which is why it’s good that we’ve gotten ahold of a few photos from the opening night festivities. In addition, the Dread Central team on the scene, Scott & Tabby Johnson and Clint & Heather McCrocklin, have already posted two new reviews from the fest, both of which are extremely positive.

  • Fantastic Fest Kickoff
    It was an epic kickoff to Fantastic Fest at The Paramount Theatre last night. This year Fantastic Fest is spotlighting the incredible genre films of Norway, and after last night’s Viking war dance/karaoke concert, we hope they allow us to do it again some time in the future! Fantastic Fest founder Tim League ripped off a Velcro suit to reveal not-so-modest Viking battle gear. He was joined on stage by Fantastic Fest staff and special guest Eugenio Mira, whose film Agnosia is playing at the fest. It also happened to be Eugenio’s birthday, and the crowd demonstrated their gratitude for his wonderful support of the festival (his film The Birthday showed at the very first Fantastic Fest six years ago).

  • Let Me In
    After the Viking dance things switched gears to a more serious note when the Texas Boys Choir performed music from the score of Let Me In. Director Matt Reeves and Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino introduced the Texas Boys Choir, who gave a haunting choral performance prior to the screening of the incredible film.

    Ryan Reynolds and director Rodirgo Cortes walked the red carpet for Buried. Ryan also had the chance to meet the four people who endured being buried in custom built coffins for the chance to attend the gala event.

    Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

    Published

    on

    We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

    Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

    Principal photography began back in October 2017.

    Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead” is nothing short of a friggin’ gift for fans; and if you aren’t watching it, you need to fix that like yesterday. Teally… you don’t have much of an excuse. It’s on DVD. Blu-ray. Digital. Netflix. You name it!

    Season 3 is just around the corner, and the good folks over at Arrow in the Head got themselves the first look at Ash and his bride-to-be, Candy, played by Katrina Hobbs.

    Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

    Published

    on

    Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

    Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

    Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

    In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
