Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival has announced the first wave of films for this year’s event, a list that includes director Edgar Wright’s much-anticipated The World’s End, James Wan’s paranormal horror film The Conjuring, the Haley Joel Osment- and Gillian Anderson-starring sci-fi drama I’ll Follow You Down, E.L. Katz’s Cheap Thrills, and a documentary called The Otherworld from Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil).
The festival, which takes place July 18 to August 6, will also screen Shinsuke Sato’s anime adaptation Library Wars, Bobcat Goldthwait’s bigfoot film Willow Creek, and Lloyd Kaufman’s Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1, as well as hosting theater company Title 66’s version of Clive Barker’s stage play A History of the Devil.
