Movie Hype: Wait, Idris Elba Is Knuckles? Postponed Pioneertown & Hiruko the Goblin @ JAPAN CUTS

 Why? Weird, but okay.

Sadness,  Pioneertown International Film Festival has to be postponed due to the resurgence of Covid19 Delta variant, to a later date.

August 20—September 2, 2021
Rentals: $1-$10
Japan Cuts, based on New York, but online this year has dome real crazy gems. 

"Hiruko the Goblin has been added to the JAPAN CUTS: Festival of New Japanese Film slate for its international premiere. As part of its 30th anniversary celebration, the film has received a meticulous 2K restoration in which it’s “eerie meld of camp, horror, and fever-dream surrealism” glows even brighter."
Hopefully, the new 2K version will be ready this October for home video and streaming.
