Fantastic Fest 2009 winds down today, but hey, we'll always have the memories. Well, bleary, beery memories: Thank God we were taking notes. You can read all of our FF coverage at our Screens blog, Picture in Picture (, including reports from the red carpet at Gentlemen Broncos (starring Jemaine Clement, right) and Zombieland, where Sony Pictures set up a mobile zombie makeup station and undeaded the crowd – something that didn't seem to faze star Woody Harrelson (left) one lick.
