Los Angeles, get ready! The Beyond Fest is coming!!!

Beyond Fest, the highest-attended genre film festival in the US, is excited to announce its full slate of 2017 programming featuring 32 events and 23 West Coast premieres of cinematic excess. Co-presented by Shudder, Beyond Fest returns to Hollywood’s famed Egyptian Theatre for 12 days of movies, music and mayhem spanning Friday, September 29th – Tuesday, October 10th to generate funds for the nonprofit 501c3 American Cinematheque.

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.
