check out that post here -- but before that one, starting this Thursday the 10th and running until Sunday the 13th, is the second edition of the virtual-based Nightstream Festival!
Check out this year's line-up here. Nightstream popped up last year when we couldn't have in-person fests, as a conglomeration of several local horror fests from around the country (including the Brooklyn one), and it kicked ass -- you can see my previous coverage here. And this year's line-up looks just as fun -- I've seen and reviewed several of the movies that they's screening previously from earlier-in-the-year fests, so here are a couple of links:
Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror, reviewed here
Alien on Stage, reviewed here
King Car, reviewed here
Poser, reviewed here
After Blue, reviewed here
Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes, reviewed here
Those are all terrific movies! Other movies they're screening which I have seen but not reviewed and yet still recommend -- Mickey Reece's Agnes, Andrew Gaynard's All My Friends Hate Me, Jane Schoenbrun's We're All Going To The World's Fair, Samantha Aldana's Shapeless, John Adams' Hellbender, and especially especially Phil Tippet's thirty-years-in-the-making stop-motion epic Mad God, which is one of the rare beasts I felt safe pulling the word "masterpiece" out for the same year as its release. I never do that, I have a rule against it, and yet I knew on first sight that Mad God will be a part of my life forever.
go check out the line-up and buy your pass, scare yourselves silly, and do come crying to me.
