Beyond Fest 2015 Announces Line-Up With An Amazing Take On THE SHINING

Even if you can’t see the fest, you should at least see this video.

Every year, I pack my bags and head to Austin for Fantastic Fest, the absolute best week of the year. But there are other fests out there that I would also love to attend, and one of them is Beyond Fest, which will be held this year in Los Angeles from October 1 to October 12.

Why do I wish I could go? Watch this video and find out for yourself!

I don’t even know where to begin. A double feature of the first two Evil Dead movies with Edgar Wright and Bruce Campbell? Better Off Dead hosted by The Meltdown? Dog Day Afternoon with Al Pacino and Brett Ratner? I could go on and on.

And I will! Here’s the full line-up:
