    SXSW ’14: Desperation, Transformation and The Occult in “STARRY EYES”

It’s not so difficult to see why then, in a frankly stacked midnight lineup at a major American film festival, STARRY EYES is one to watch.

A microcosm of a society that hosts embarrassment-as-entertainment, self-deception and class conflict, the most surprising thing about E.L. Katz’s feature debut is that it’s just that. FANGORIA spoke with the filmmaker, a longtime collaborator of YOU’RE NEXT’s Adam Wingard, about how he packed a killer cast, clever subtext and more into an accomplished first film.
