Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
Last month, we attended Fantastic Fest, a film festival held in Austin, Texas, that is, to use a scientific term, totally bonkers. It's a place where new and incredibly weird genre movies play and are instantly eaten up (or harshly rejected) by geeky audiences.
