BEYOND FEST
Presented by the American Cinematheque, Meltdown Comics, Death Waltz Recording Co. and the Alamo Drafthouse’s Fantastic Fest. Sponsored by Shudder.

BEYOND FEST is the highest-attended genre film festival in Southern California, delivering the best horror, sci-fi, fantasy and badass cinema to Los Angeles. Join us for a dozen nights of amazing guests, West Coast premieres and free screenings!

With a diverse slate that includes films from all corners of the globe, Beyond Fest is proud to open with BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99 with director S.Craig Zahler returning with Vince Vaughn and Udo Kier in person, while closing night honors are bestowed upon Yorgos Lanthimos’ ferociously-twisted follow-up to THE LOBSTER, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER. Other hotly-anticipated titles making their debuts include the world premiere of Justin MacGregor’s BEST F(R)IENDS with Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero reunited and in person, Joe Lynch’s blissfully violent MAYHEM, and, courtesy of Amazon Prime Video, a very special theatrical premiere of "Jean-Claude Van Johnson" with the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme, in person with the show’s cast and creators.

The most beloved genre films are highlighted with a series of special event screenings throughout the festival. Arnold Schwarzenegger takes center stage for an explosive 30th anniversary one-two punch of PREDATOR and THE RUNNING MAN. The Master, Dario Argento, will be in attendance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of SUSPIRIA with screenings of Synapse Film’s 4K restoration AND the recently unearthed 35mm print. "Car Chases, Collisions & Conversation: An Evening with Edgar Wright and Walter Hill" covers four decades of filmmaking and the interrelated nature of the pulsating smash BABY DRIVER and the seminal THE DRIVER in one epic night. Musical maestro Paul Williams will share stories from behind the scenes of PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE. Mick Garris and fellow Masters of Horror preside over a reverential tribute to two of the greats - George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper - with the West Coast premiere of MOMA and Film Foundation’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 4K digital restoration and a screening of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. And the theatrical premiere of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE BOOTLEG EDITION completes a totally gonzo WTF double bill with HOWARD THE DUCK on 70mm and star Lea Thompson in person.

Beyond Fest welcomes the return of genre streaming platform Shudder as its co-presenting sponsor, a partnership that provides 14 screenings (11 West Coast premieres) absolutely free to film fans. Every night, the 90-seat "Shudder Theatre" will feature a brand new film selected from across the world including Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s triumphant return BEFORE WE VANISH, home invasion thrill ride BETTER WATCH OUT, the critically acclaimed Canadian zombie shocker THE HUNGRY (LES AFFAMES), Marc Meyers’ searing portrait of a serial-killer-in-the-making, MY FRIEND DAHMER, Alexandre O. Phillippe’s revelatory PSYCHO shower scene doc 78/52, and Ted Geoghegan’s sophomore scalper, MOHAWK.

For Cinematic Void’s sidebar they have enlisted the help of like minds as they venture further into the unknown with a series of special screenings. Author and academic Kier La Janisse will be present for Jean Rollin’s THE GRAPES OF DEATH and the release of the book, Lost Girls: The Phantasmagorical Cinema of Jean Rollin which she is publishing. Friday Night Frights are co-presenting the west coast premiere of the 4K restoration of the thoroughly bugnuts RAWHEAD REX and the Death Waltz Records record release of HELLRAISER on 35mm. And filmmakers Amy Holden Jones and Deborah Brock will be present for a double bill of anniversary screenings of their films SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE and SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II.

Tickets to free shows available at the box office at 6:00 PM unless otherwise noted.

Standby lines for sold-out programs form 90 minutes before showtime.
