    Ok, so to break it down, that Cusack flick looks servicable. Nothing fancy, but he's usually watchable. True Love...pretty sure that I read some reviews of that, mostly favorable. The two that are almost MUST SEE, American Mary and Resolution. I will try to dig up the reviews on these 2 but longstoryshort they are both supposed to be worth seeing. Thale has gotten mixed reviews and a lot of misogynist complaints. The others, I have no idea. Would You Rather, sounds familiar...and it has Jeffrey Combs...which could be just as well a reason to avoid as much as see(he ain't too picky). Not a bad lineup, let's hope when they announce the rest there's a surprise or 2.

    Screamfest L.A. - Creature Found Under the Bed | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    the entire line-up is out. I dunno, it's ok. I just wish they would try to get some of the bigger profile or more out-there kind of films. They tend to play it pretty safe and i guess moving to the Regal has herded them further in that direction. F'rinstance, Cinefamily is showing American Screams(a well reviewed documentary about homespun haunted attractions) and Toad Road(a movie crossing drug use w/Dante's Inferno). Fests are supposed to be a little more adventurous...not just the future direct-to-dvd or John Cusack flicks. They have a few hidden gems...but just not enough.

    Mark me down for Haunter. It's got Stephen McHattie(Pontypool) so that's good enough for me.

    Huh, last year it was at the Regal(la live) after years at Mann's Chinese...note the new venue.
