Halloween, Hold The Dark, and Gaspar Noé round out Fantastic Fest’s second wave

With Fantastic Fest less than a month away, Austin’s revamped genre film festival—you can check out its new code of conduct and board of directorsat the links—has revealed its second wave of films, following an initial announcement that included new flicks from Gareth Evans, Iko Uwais, and J.J. Abrams.

Foremost among the recent additions is David Gordon Green’s Halloween, which will enjoy its U.S. premiere as the festival’s opening night film with star Jamie Lee Curtis in attendance. Other titles of note include Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier’s man-against-nature thriller Hold the Dark and Gaspar Noé’s buzzy Climax, a head trip we quite enjoyed after catching its Cannes debut.
