The selection is so good and me being Jewish is somewhat ruined by the high holidays. That includes a special screening on Oct 3 ( "Shin Godzilla"?) on Yom Kippur. The highly anticipated by me "The Void" which is suppose to pay homage to Carpenter and Cronenberg with practical effects comes out on the eve of Rosh Hashana for a free screening. I can only write that I hope you get injured in some way as I can't go to these screenings.

The rest of the calendar not related to Judaism has many highlights for horror and action fans. One of the biggest will be the Q & A of Kurt Russel for the screening of "Big Trouble in Little China" by "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn. The connection, Kurt Russel is in the next "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Other highlights include quirky movies like documentarian main man Morgan Spurlock and his hatred of "Rats." A huge amount of hyper violence in "Headshot." "Dawn of the Dead 3D", are you kidding? I have seen that one way too often!

Ah, jeez there's just so much good violence to see, check the full guide for your taste and time. And for my fellow Jews, Shanah Tovah!
