Night one of Fantastic Fest has come to a close. I’m currently gathering up thoughts on the films seen so far: American Mary, Antiviral and Frankenweenie, which held its world premiere at the Austin, Texas event.
The latter played on multiple screens at the Alamo Drafthouse; the organizers even went so far as to have a specific screening just for dogs…and their owners (apparently it went off without a hitch and festival co-founder Tim League said an upholstery cleaning service was immediately descending on the theater post-screening).
In attendance: Director Tim Burton, Martin Landau, Winona Ryder and Charlie Tahan. Shock was on the red carpet and you’ll see interviews with the gang here soon (we got Landau to trip down memory lane and talk about Alone in the Dark). In the meantime, head inside for access to our Fantastic Fest photo gallery which includes pics from the premiere.
Click on the image below for our festival gallery so far! (It will be updated throughout the week.)
