A few weeks back we learned that flicks such as Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, Let the Right One In, The Tingler and Eagle Eye would be playing at the fourth annual Fantastic Fest in Austin -- and now we have batch number two! (And if you're wondering why I give a little genre fest so much blog-love, all I'll say is "I guess you had to be there." But that phrase could easily translate into the present-tense "I guess you have to go there," if you catch my meaning.)

If you attend this year's event, you'll not only get to mock me -- to my face! -- at the infamous Fantastic Feud, but you'll also be able to catch movies like Acolytes, Wicked Lake, JCVD, Surveillance, Deadgirl, Santos, and Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds! Plus one of this year's themes is a very fun one: That of indie Australian cinema, especially stuff from the '70s and '80s. Of particular note in this department is the new doco Not Quite Hollywood, which looks to be sixteen flavors of Aussie insanity. Full press release on the newly-added features is available after the jump, but for a lot more information (including all the short films!), check out the Fantastic Fest website.
