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.

Beyond Fest is the highest attended genre film festival in the U.S. and exists to build the genre community in Los Angeles. Based out of Hollywood's legendary Egyptian Theatre, Beyond Fest is built in partnership with the American Cinematheque, Meltdown Comics, Death Waltz Recording Co. and the Alamo Drafthouse's, Fantastic Fest. A not-for-profit entity, Beyond Fest raises funds for the 501C3 non-profit film institution, American Cinematheque. Its favorite film is JAWS.
Established in 1981, the American Cinematheque is a 501C3 non-profit viewer-supported film exhibition and cultural organization dedicated to the celebration of the Moving Picture in all of its forms. The American Cinematheque renovated and reopened (on Dec. 4, 1998) the historic 1922 Hollywood Egyptian Theatre. This includes a state-of-the-art 616-seat theatre housed within Sid Grauman's first grand movie palace on Hollywood Boulevard. The exotic courtyard is fully restored to its 1922 grandeur. The Egyptian was the home of the very first Hollywood movie premiere in 1922. In January 2005 the American Cinematheque expanded its programming to the 1940 Aero Theatre on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.
