Friday at Fantastic Fest 2010 featured a movie about a tire that makes people’s heads explode. Then, two other movies almost made MY head explode: one out of sheer awesomeness and the other out of bored frustration. And that’s just part of how day two at the world’s largest genre film festival based in Austin, Texas went. Click here to read about day one, then hit the jump to find out which film did what out of Clement Sze-Kit Cheng & Chi-kin Kwok’s Gallants, Dante Lam’s Fire of Conscience, Quentin Dupleux’s Rubber and Mark Hartley’s Machete Maidens Unleashed.
Multiple zombie apocalypses, mutilation with farm animals, a killer tire, musical terrorists, live pornographic theater: and that’s just the movies! There’s only one place where crazy, mind-bending contemporary genre films from all over the world come to play, and that’s Fantastic Fest. The sixth annual film festival takes places September 23-30 in Austin, Texas, and the first wave of films was announced Tuesday. Among the highlights are the new Takeshi Kitano flick Outrage, the Cannes film Rubber, and Ip Man 2, which topped Iron Man 2 at the Hong Kong box office.
