Beyond Fest Closing Week Scares up Blood on Her Name, Natural Born Killers and More - LA Weekly

Update 10/8: Read our Beyond Fest story featuring perspective on Natural Born Killers from Oliver Stone (appearing tonight at the Egyptian) here.

“The highest-attended genre film festival in the U.S.,” Beyond Fest is heading into its final few days at the Egyptian Theatre (it ends Oct. 8). But there’s still time to catch the West Coast premiere of the 4K restoration of The Living Dead of Manchester Morgue (Oct. 4, 10;30 p.m.), Jorge Grau’s psychotronic zombie film of 1974. The Evil Dead Reimagined (Oct. 5, 4 p.m.) takes Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic and adds a live musical performance by Joe LoDuca to create an entirely new aesthetic experience. For new offerings, check out the nerve-racking backwoods thriller Blood on Her Name (Oct. 5, 8 p.m.), directed by Matthew Pope from a screenplay by Pope and Don M. Thompson, starring Bethany Anne Lind as a woman who kills a man in self-defense and hides the body, only to be visited by the demons of fear and guilt.

Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood; (323) 466-3456, americancinemathequecalendar.com. See Beyond Fest’s remaining schedule of films at beyondfest.com/2019-films/.
