Day 2 of Fantastic Fest was a total blast. As a regular badge holder, I showed up 2 hours before the movies started to pick up tickets – I thought I was going to be early but the line was already huge. The Alamo staff cranked through the whole thing in 30 minutes flat and I still got into everything I wanted to. I am so impressed with how smoothly the logistics are going for this festival.
With time to burn, I headed over to Casa Garcias for some breakfast tacos. Then I went back over to the Alamo and tried to catch up on this blog, but for some reason I’m having a chronic “Can’t get IP address” issue there. Alas. Life is SO HARD <sob>.
My movie lineup for day two is:
- Kamogawa Horumo aka “Battle League in Kyoto”, a Japanese movie left largely undescribed in the program as “it’s craaaaazy wild!”
- Krabat, a German movie based on a young adult novel called “The Satanic Mill” (yeah, that’s how the Germans roll)
- Zombieland, the big star-studded world premiere of the day
- Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl, Japenese splatter comedy
- Doghouse, a horror comedy
I ended up not seeing Doghouse; after a long day of movies and a back and forth to the Paramount for Zombieland, I decided to start the long drive home at midnight rather than at 2 AM. But reviews of the rest follow! (Well, I got impatient and posted my review of Zombieland when I got home last night because it was just so good.)
