WHAT THE FEST? 2018 Preview

REVENGE
WHAT THE FEST!? is a four-day showcase of outrageous content -- horror, sci-fi, documentary, thrillers, and beyond -- that will take place from March 29th through April 1st at the IFC Center.

Opening night of WHAT THE FEST!? will feature the New York Premiere of Coralie Fargeat’s REVENGE, a thriller about a mistress who exacts “revenge” on her married lover and his friends, turning their annual hunting trip into a decidedly deadlier adventure.
The closing night film will be Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER, about a group of teen punks on the lam, who hide out from the cops in a remote cabin… only to run into bigger troubles. Wexler will appear at the Q&A, along with producer and co-star Larry Fessenden of Glass Eye Pix.


THE RANGER
More WHAT THE FEST!? programming highlights include the World Premiere of BOILED ANGELS: THE TRIAL OF MIKE DIANA, a documentary chronicling the obscenity trail of the eponymous comic book artist Mike Diana, directed by cult favorite Frank Henenlotter (BASKET CASE); Henenlotter and Diana will appear in person.

 There will also be a sneak peek of an unseen episode from the new AMC series “The Terror,” with star Jared Harris of “Mad Men” in person for a Q&A, the critically lauded horror film GHOST STORIES starring Martin Freeman, and the World Premiere restoration of the never-before-seen-in-the-U.S., CURSE OF SNAKES VALLEY, a.k.a “The Soviet Indiana Jones.”


THE ENDLESS is Justin Benson and Aaron Morehead's follow up to the near perfect genre film SPRING. Two brothers receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn't find as young men, they're forced to reconsider the cult's beliefs when confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp. As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brother's race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with the cult.

LOWLIFE is easily one of the most shockingly bizarre, offensive, gory, and downright funny films I've seen in years. The sordid lives of an addict, an ex-con, and a luchador collide when an organ harvesting caper goes very, very wrong.


WHAT THE FEST!? 2018 will be held at The IFC Center Mach 29th - April 1st, for more information and to purchase tickets click here.
