FITS AND STARTS On Digital & VOD December 5

#BeyondFest Present HE NEVER DIED Q&A With #HenryRollins

On Wednesday October 7th, Beyond Fest is proud to host punk icon Henry Rollins in conversation with Shepard Fairey alongside the West Coast Premiere of his new film HE NEVER DIED.

In a role he grabs by the throat, Rollins plays Jack, a dark longer whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of Andrea (Jordan Todosey), a girl claiming to be his daughter. Jack's routine of bingo and cannibalism is severely hampered when his past returns to haunt him as Andrea is kidnapped by men intent on killing him. With a history of murder to reference, Jack heads out on a bloody rampage of revenge and redemption.

Thrust forward by a force of nature performance which matches Rollins explosive onstage energy, HE NEVER DIED is a singular experience that is a weird and wonderful joy to watch.

After the film Rollins and director Jason Krawczyk will join Shepard Fairey in conversation in what is bound to be one of the most entertaining Q&A's hosted on the Beyond Fest stage.

On Friday October 9th, Beyond Fest is proud to host the West Coast Premiere and hometown throw down of THE MIND'S EYE: the explosive new film from Joe Begos that garnered him the Best Director Award at Fantastic Fest last week. Not only will Begos, Josh Eithier and Graham Skipper attend the show but synth legend Steve Moore will also perform live on stage before the screening!

Set in a snow covered 1990, THE MIND'S EYE picks up on drifter Zack Connors (Skipper), as he quietly passes through a sleepy New England town. Unfortunately for Zack, Dr. Michael Slovak (a gleefully evil John Speredakos), the leading authority on telekinesis, has other plans, forcefully admitting him into his institute to "help" him control his unique skill. True to form, things do not go as planned for Slovak or anyone who gets in the way of Zack and his mind-melting powers as the film escalates to outrageously gory heights.

With echoes of Cronenberg, Carpenter, Romero, Raimi et al , The Mind's Eye reunites the wolf pack of Almost Human brilliantly and is a quintessential midnight ride into hyper-violent-telekinetic-carnage that is not to be missed!

Doors open at 6:30PM and the shows begin at 7:30PM.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Incredibles 2 All-New Teaser Trailer, Poster & Image

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.


Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist In Cincinnati

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist on November 20th at 7:30 PM in Cincinnati.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
