Fantastic Fest has announced that the Ethan Hawke-starring horror movie Sinister, director Rian Johnson’s time travel thriller Looper, and The American Scream — a documentary about homemade haunted houses directed by Best Worst Movie filmmaker Michael Paul Stephenson — will all be playing at next month’s celebration of genre movies in Austin, Texas. Johnson and Stephenson are set to attend the festival, as are Sinister director Scott Derrickson, producer Jason Blum and writer C. Robert Cargill.
Other new additions to the event include anthology movies The ABCs of Death, Doomsday Book and the world premiere of Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, which will be attended by Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.
This second wave of films lengthens a lineup which already boasts opening night film Dredd 3D, the Shining documentary Room 237, and the horror-comedy Cockneys vs Zombies.
Fantastic Fest takes place at the Alamo Drafthouse’s South Lamar location, Sept. 20-27.
