LOTS OF FESTIVAL UPDATES
Taking a cue from the Sundance Film Festival, the soon-to-begin Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan is offering a Midnight series as part of its extensive lineup, and a trio of superior genre films will be playing there in advance of their theatrical releases. Danny Boyle?s post-plague shocker 28 DAYS LATER screens Wednesday, May 7 at midnight and Friday, May 9 at 11:30 p.m.; Robert Parigi?s unnerving LOVE OBJECT will also be shown May 7 at midnight and on Saturday, May 10 at 11 p.m.; and the Pang Brothers? well-reviewed Asian supernatural chiller THE EYE screens May 9 at midnight and May 10 at 11 p.m. Go to www.tribecafilmfestival.org for more details and to order tickets.

The new attendees include: Stuart Gordon, previewing his new film KING OF THE ANTS; FX maniac Screaming Mad George, showcasing his BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR creations; a preview of the new chiller THE LAST PATIENT with writer/director Jeff Broadstreet and actors Andrew (WISHMASTER) Divoff, Karen (HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) Black, John (TALES FROM THE CRYPT) Kassir, Denice (SUBSPECIES) Duff and Robert (DRAGON FIGHTER) DiTillio; William Lustig, revealing new releases from his new Blue Underground DVD company; the ladies of THE EVIL DEAD and VAMPYRES; Reggie (PHANTASM) Bannister; I DRINK YOUR BLOOD director David Durston and star Lynn Lowry; actress Kathleen (BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR) Kinmont; and veteran actor Mako (the CONAN movies).
