Beyond Fest 2014

For those who live in LA, October is a great month. Several theaters really orient the month’s programming to horror, the supernatural, and the strange. One of the best recent events in town is Beyond Fest, which in 2014 runs from September 25 to October 4. (Leaving fans the rest of October to enjoy horror at other venues!)

This year, the Beyond Fest lineup lives up to its name, with a new 4K transfer of Halloween, for which John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis will be in attendance. There’s the local premiere of the Hollywood horror Starry Eyes; the Jake Gyllenhaal thriller NightcrawlerHorns, the Daniel Radcliffe film from Alexandre Aja; the remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown; and a Fight Club retrospective screening with Chuck Palahnuik and Jim Uhls in attendance.

Beyond the big-ticket items, many of the fest’s screenings are free. Films such as The ABCs of Death 2, The Editor, Norway, and Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD will all be LA premieres that won’t cost you a dime. Check out the full Beyond Fest 2014 lineup below.

Here’s the fest trailer. The official site will have more info; in the meantime, the list of films and guests follows.
