Hello from Austin, Texas.
The first wave of movies that will be shown at Fantastic Fest has been announced. This is one of the greatest experiences a movie lover can participate in. I am already anxious about seeing these movies and it is only July. I need a time machine to jump ahead two months!
A few that jump out as fun are the restored Fulci's Zombie and House by the Cemetery. Versus, also stands out and is a fun zombie film that most people have not viewed! Check out website to see all the movies that have been listed, so far.
