Christmas is almost here! But even better and closer is Fantastic Fest. Yes, it's geek nirvana coming up towards the end of September; you'll be hearing about it a lot around these parts. We'll mention it with great glee and it's likely that whenever we speak of it, a chorus of angels will erupt from the heavens. Am I rubbing it in? Yes. Yes, I am. Am I resorting to hyperbole? No. I categorically am not. Fantastic Fest has birthed more mind-blowing films into my life than I can count. Am I saying that you're an incomplete person if you don't attend Fantastic Fest? No, but I am heavily implying it. There are lots of delicious chunks of cinema on the way, but one that I'm most looking forward to is Chris Peckover's Undocumented.

"A small group of documentary filmmakers chronicle the trials and inequities faced by Mexican illegal immigrants. When they join a group of families illegally crossing the border to record the experience firsthand, their truck is pulled over and detained. What happens next plunges their group into unimaginable horror."

Living in Texas all of my life, much of that time near the border, the flick sounds geographically topical and something that hasn't been mined much at all. And what makes for a great horror movie like exploiting real life tragedy? As if the plight of illegal aliens and the threat of being decapitated by a cartel maniac wasn't scary enough, Dread Central is now showing off some stills from the upcoming film here. Stick around these here parts for more news on the film, since I'm sure most of the Horrorsquad crew will want to weigh in on this one.
