    Beyond Fest closes with special Livestreamed screening of “TRICK ‘R TREAT”; EXCL Comments

    The successor to the seasonal cinematic throne is clear, and has been since a groundswell of buzz and support screenings (one by FANGORIA at the no-longer-with-us Pioneer Theater in the East Village) and its eventual immensely inadequate DVD release in October of 2009 saw TRICK ‘R TREAT blow audiences away. Steadily amassing a cult of fans and given a 24-hour annual Halloween marathon on FEARNet, the adoration of Michael Dougherty’s fantastic anthology has culminated in its producers at Legendary giving it the blowout it deserves.

    The good lads behind Toronto’s smash stage hit NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE are back in action just in time for Halloween, currently running as we speak once again in the city’s storied theatre, THEATRE PASSE MURAILLES. And though still playing as a serio-comic adaptation of George A.

    “SCHISM” (Screamfest Movie Review)

    Los Angeles’ Screamfest has become known as a place for indie films that might otherwise struggle for screenings to not only have a theatrical showing, but also catch the eyes of Hollywood’s major distributors. This year, the talk of the festival has been Adam Gierasch’s SCHISM, which screened this past Saturday night to a packed house. This reviewer attended without knowing anything about the film or what to expect, and can now safely say that it’s shocking, disturbing and possibly one of the best indie films so far this year.
