Fantastic Arcade Has Infinite Lives

The first annual Fantastic Arcade is now over but Fantastic Fest rages on! To send the Arcade out in proper style, we held a video game trivia challenge a-la the classic 80’s game show Starcade that was full of obscure factoids, joysticks skills, and plenty of beer. After 3 rounds of head-to-head arcade action- a victor was crowned, who walked away with a cash prize as well as his very own vintage stand up arcade machine! If you’re not familiar with Starcade—brush up by streaming 41 essential episodes HERE!


Fantastic Fest 2010 Awards Announced!

Fantastic Fest is excited to announce this year’s crop of Fantastic Fest titles which includes some of the brightest and hardest-hitting films of all time. We’ve seen a psycho-kinetic tire, a secret ninja, a town invaded by 8-bit enemies, and a family of cannibals that you might consider going home with. It’s a terrible task to pick favorites and single out any of the magnificent films, but our esteemed team of jurors have done the nearly impossible and chosen the best and most striking films of the festival.
