NYC! Free FANGORIA Screening of Bloody Horror Flick, “ALMOST HUMAN”Fango Local,Movies/TV,News Fangoria Staff
FANGORIA will host a free screening of the new ’80s-style horror film ALMOST HUMAN on Wednesday, February 26 at 9 p.m. at New York City’s IFC Center (323 Sixth Avenue at 3rd Street; 212-924-7771). Written and directed by Stuart Gordon protégé Joe Begos, ALMOST HUMAN stars newcomers Graham Skipper, Josh Ethier and Vanessa Leigh. The film debuted at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival. Begos and Ethier will host ALMOST HUMAN’s Big Apple premiere.
ALMOST HUMAN’s official synopsis reads: “A quiet night on the outskirts of a small town in Maine is interrupted when Seth (Skipper) witnesses his best friend Mark (Ethier) vanish in a brilliant flash of blue light. Two years later, Seth is still dealing with the fallout from the freaky incident, amid local suspicion that he is to blame for his friend’s disappearance. When a string of grisly murders disrupts the community, Seth believes Mark has returned. Together with Mark’s ex-girlfriend Jen (Vanessa Leigh), he races to find out if their friend is responsible—or if something beyond their understanding is unfolding before them.”

Here’s what genre critics say about ALMOST HUMAN:
“A gory throwback that really hits its marks.”—The Wolfman, Bloody Disgusting
“[ALMOST HUMAN] perfectly captures the feel of another decade. This is an ’80s horror flick through and through, so well done that you might be able to convince someone that it’s from the period.”—Alex Riviello, Badass Digest
“Scrappy, super-violent, and consistently amusing…certainly a short, sharp shock of indie-style scares and splatter, but here’s what impresses me the most about the flick: it virtually reeks of love for the finest in 1980s horror cinema.”—Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
Watch for an ALMOST HUMAN preview in the upcoming FANGORIA #331 and catch the movie on VOD later this month. Plus check out details for Fango’s other movie premiere next week, THE BAG MAN, right here. See you at the show!
