Fantastic Fest 2020

September 24-Oct. 8, 2020

The leading genre fest is taking a year off from its bacchanalian celebration of all films weird, horrifying, and hilarious. Instead, it's offering an online extravaganza of oddities and bizarreness, all streaming for free. Badges? We don't need no stinking badges, just an RSVP.
