American Cinematheque Annual Festival
of Fantasy, Horror and Science Fiction
American Cinematheque's 5th annual festival of the sinister and ooky is on, featuring new films, "The Toolbox Murders," "Malefique" and "The Card Player."
There are also a few from the vault: "The House of Usher/Tomb of Ligeia," 70s Brit shockeroo, "Death Line," and the "The Stone Tape," a ghost story on celluloid,
which -- strangely in sync with the subject matter -- mysteriously vanished many years ago. On a dark and stormy night...
Well, actually, we don't know that for sure. Anyway, it's re-appeared just in time to make its L.A. premiere. Timing so fab, it's spooky.
Moving on, here are some guests who are planning to show up in the flesh: directors Eric Valette ("Malefique") and Vincenzo Natali ("Nothing").
