FRIGHTENING ASS FEATURES

AFTER MIDNIGHT

FAFF fan favorites Jeremy Gardner and Christian Stella (The Battery, Tex Montana Will Survive) tell a tale of love and monsters in Central Florida. Add in amazing performances by Brea Grant, Gardner himself, and Last Podcast on the Left's Henry Zebrowski and you've got one of 2019's most heartfelt horrors, and we're proud to share it with our FAFF 9 audience!

VFW

Filmmaker Joe Begos' latest VFW comes hot on the heels of the amazing BLISS (a shot on 16mm nightmare you can watch on VOD RIGHT NOW) and cements 2019 as THE YEAR OF BEGOS. If you caught Joe and his longtime collaborator Josh Ethier's workshop at CFF a couple years ago or you were in the audience for our screenings of his film's Almost Human or The Mind's Eye, you already know. But if you don't, we invite you to watch Mr. Begos in action and be reminded that as a fan of genre cinema, there are few bigger joys than watching a movie made by someone who truly loves and understands what makes genre great. VFW is a blood-drenched blast of a motion picture with one of the year's greatest cast lists (Stephen Lang, Fred Williamson, William Sadler, David Patrick Kelly, to name a few) a story of vets versus drug-addled punk mutants VFW is tailor-made to have FAFF audiences cheering in their chairs.

TAMMY AND THE T-REX

We know you love Mac and Me and Ice Pirates as much as we do; it obviously doesn't even need to be discussed. So if we told you that the man who gifted the world with those cinematic delights also made a GORY AF romcom with Paul Walker and Denise Richards in which after getting mauled by wild animals and having his love with Ms. Richards cut short Paul Walker's brain is transplanted in a violent but oh so lovable T-Rex's body (by a Mad Scientist literally played by Bernie from Weekend at Bernie's). Originally released in 1994 and stripped of nearly all its incredible gore and SFX (gore created by legend John Carl Buechler no less!) Tammy And the T-Rex turns 25 this year and to celebrate that milestone the film has now been lovingly restored by the Gods Among Men at Vinegar Syndrome. Believe us, you need this.

THE FURIES

FAFF is pumped to work with our pals at Shudder to bring you a special screening of Tony D'Aquino's absolute ass-kicker of a horror movie. This lightning-paced shredder plays out like one of the most interesting riffs we've seen on The Most Dangerous Game in ages with kidnapped female victims being forced to face off against grotesque masked killers in the Australian Outback. In the wrong hands, that setup could have wandered into misogyny The Furies and it's ferocious lead performance by Airlie Dodds give The Furies and it's "beauty's" some genuine depth even as they face off against the film's numerous "beasts." Don't miss this one!

WRINKLES THE CLOWN

Remember in 2014 those videos of a freaky clown that popped up in random places in Florida and went viral by scaring the absolute shit out of a bunch of folks? Documentarian Michael Beach Nichols sure does, and he takes us directly inside the weird world of Wrinkles, the man behind them who is hirable to scare children, friends, and loved ones via a Craig's List ad. Nichols also wisely uses his film to explore precisely what it is that makes clowns so damn scary and in the process, crafts one of the year's most fascinating and frightening documentary experiences.
