The Secret Screening(s)
Fantastic Fest’s secret screenings have always been a big draw and the catalyst for raging speculative debates. The titles from year to year are kept under strict lock and key, but over the festival’s history, have featured work from the likes of Darren Aronofsky, Guillermo del Toro, and P.T. Anderson. But even when they turn out to be things like Universal Soldier: Regeneration, they still prove spectacularly worthwhile. We could guess wildly at this year’s offerings, but no small part of the fun of the secret screenings is the anticipation and the uncertainty.
