Sami's Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas
It's almost that time again!
Time for Fantastic Fest! www.FantasticFest.com
Got a huge lineup of awesome movies to show this year.
Last year showed movies such as Hostel, Wolf Creek, Dominoe, and a whole slew of Asian films.
Since I know that most of ya are only interested in the Anime and Asian flicks that will be showing, here is the list.
But first gotta say the Ed Neal (Berg Katse from Gatchaman)will be live for a showing of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre where he played the Hitchhiker.
Greg Nicotero the star makeup person who did the makeup for From Dusk till Dawn, Currently on Grindhouse where he's put me in so many layers of latex and goo that you can't recognize me anymore in that movie, he's a legend when it comes to makeup.
Shinobi will be showing thanks to Funimation. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Origin-Spirits of the Past...again, thank you Funi.
Naisu No Mori (Funky Forest)
Haze (written by same guy who did Tetsuo Iron Man)
The Glamorous Life Of Sachiko Hanai
And many more. It's a week long festival of film, still getting new titles.
Here's a trailer to one of our newer titles.
And...can't say too much, but are trying to get two especially good titles....one that I'm sure all of ya (including myself) would geek out over and is still showing in Japan, the second...well, all I'll say is that it's in theaters now in japan and based on super popular manga. Crossing fingers.
Hope to see you there!
