I guess this is as good a place to make another announcement as any: While my last day at CHUD is Friday, I will be back at the end of September, covering Fantastic Fest in all its glory for the site. Yes, you’ll have a chance to read my reviews and thoughts about the best film festival in the world, right here at my original home.

But for this event, we’re putting an even cooler twist on the concept, because some movies are perfect for seeing while buried,” said Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.
Do you have what it takes to watch Buried while buried? The claustrophobic need not apply. If you do want to apply, RSVP here at the Facebook event page. Four RSVPers will be chosen at random, and they’ll get to attend the gala afterparty… should they survive their ordeal.
