Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead

I’ve mentioned another film festival happening in Montreal right now, the genre fest called Fantasia. Some people have told me that I simply MUST make it to see some of the films they’re screening. My schedule at Comedia is pretty busy, plus Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse owners Tim and Karrie League are already scouring Fantasia, so I will probably miss it while here. In fact, I looked at the schedule to see that most of the features playing today are things I’ve already seen, some many many years old. Too bad.

I was kinda bummed to have missed the U.K. indie horror sensation Shaun of the Dead, which screened the other day. Shaun has received some crazy and enthusiastic reviews, and won’t be released stateside until late September. As I felt bummed, I popped over to Aint’t It Cool News to learn that Harry has set up a special Austin premiere for September 1, with the cast and crew in attendance! I guess everything works out in the end…

Now, on to more Just For Laughs…
