Beyond Fest 2020

Beyond Fest, the annual L.A.-based genre film festival, has announced its full line-up for this year’s event. Comprised of double and triple features and taking place at the Mission Tiki Drive-In theater in Los Angeles, the festival will feature the world premieres of Christopher Landon‘s body-swapping Blumhouse horror film Freaky as well as the Robert Forster-led werewolf film The Wolf of Snow Hollow, plus the West Coast premieres of Rose Glass‘s Saint Maud, Justin Simien‘s Bad Hair, and many more. Get the complete line-up below.

Beyond Fest 2020 officially runs from October 2 through October 8, 2020, but there will actually be a special event before that on September 24, where attendees will be able to see a double feature of Brandon Cronenberg‘s hyper-violent body horror film Possessor with John Frankenheimer‘s 1966 sci-fi movie Seconds.

“We specifically wanted to give COVID-19 a resilient middle finger and provide a safe, communal respite for filmmakers and film fans to celebrate the best genre cinema on the biggest screens possible,” said Beyond Fest Co-Founder Christian Parkes, explaining why they chose to host the event at a drive-in facility.

Tickets will be on sale via Eventbrite on September 18 at 9:00 A.M. PST, so if you’re in the Los Angeles area, this sounds like an excellent way to see some new movies earlier than their official releases and to catch up with rep screenings of Mulholland Dr, The Burbs, Misery, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, and more. Here’s the full schedule:
