‘Diary of the Dead’ to Open Fantastic Fest

'Diary of the Dead' to Open Fantastic Fest

Fresh off its Toronto world premiere, and subsequent acquisition by The Weinstein Company, George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead has been selected as the Opening Night Film of the 2007 Fantastic Fest (September 20-27 at the Alamo South Lamar). The third annual Austin genre fest, for which I’m one of the programmers, has added a bunch of other titles and events. Among the latest selections are hype-heavy indie flicks such as Son of Rambow, Weirdsville, Mirageman, Flash Point, The Devil’s Chair, and more. Plus, we have a handful of super secret surprise screenings that are gonna blow your mind. Meanwhile, in honor of Justin Lin’s Finishing the Game, the Alamo Drafthouse gang are hosting a “Bruce Lee lookalike contest” for Fantastic Fest prizes. Click here for details on that, and see you next week!
