For a while it looked like Fantastic Fest 2010 had set a new level of insanity with the now-famous RZA-enhanced Chaos Reigns karaoke party.
Closing party. Elijah Wood. Tesla Coils.
Just to confirm for anyone who wasn't there (and for some who were but are now convinced that it must have been some tequila-enhanced fever dream), that's the star of The Lord of the Rings in a Faraday cage with Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo thrashing out to some Slayer performed by the singing Tesla coils of electrical art collective ArcAttack!.
Science? It's fantastic.
