Even if you can’t manage to claw your way to the Big Apple over the next couple of weeks for NYAFF, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with its offerings and queue them mentally.  With directors such as Miike and To, and films such as the Death Note sequel L: Change the World and the live-action Dororo, we’re talking state-of-the-art genre movies…

There’s only a handful of horror film festivals that enjoy international reputations and Edinburgh’s Dead by Dawn is one of them.  In a way, its founder and director Adèle Hartley is the ultimate fan—with no real prior experience, she nonetheless started the kind of event that she knew she’d love to attend.  That was in 1993.  And the startling success that she’s achieved since tells me that all of us in horror could probably learn a few things from her…

T.M. Revolution will be a Guest of Honor during this year's New York Comic-Con ...
