Kevin Bacon, director Neil Marshall (The Descent), and indie-horror auteur Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter) will all appear at Fantasia 2015, the genre film festival that takes place in Montreal, July 14-Aug. 4. Bacon and Marshall are promoting, respectively, the thriller Cop Car and the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, while Fessenden is set to perform with his spooky audio tale troupe, Tales From Beyond the Pale.
Other Fantasia guests include Marshall’s fellow Tales of Halloween directors Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate) and Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV), Some Kind of Hate filmmaker Adam Egypt Mortimer, We Are Still Here actress Barbara Crampton, and rock singer and bodybuilding champion Jon Miki Thor, the subject of the new documentary I Am Thor.
The final slate of films to be screened at Fantasia was also announced today. Notable titles include the Elijah Wood-starring horror-comedy Cooties, three movies from Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono—Shinjuku Swan, Love & Peace, and Tag—and closing-night film Attack on Titan, director Shinji Higuchi’s live-action adaptation of the long-running manga series.
As previously announced, the festival will screen the Paul Rudd-starring superhero movie Ant-Man on its opening night.
