Fantastic Fest today announced the third and final wave of programming for this year’s genre film event, which takes place in Austin, Texas, Sept. 18-25. The films added to the schedule for the festival’s tenth anniversary bash include the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Horns, the Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows, and the Ryan Murphy-produced The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a remake of the 1975 horror movie of the same name whose trailer was also released Wednesday. Another new, not-to-be-missed addition: director David Gregory’s documentary Lost Soul—The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau, which concerns Stanley’s ultimately disastrous attempt to adapt H.G. Wells’ classic sci-fi novel.

Other notable attractions include a screening of Halloween attended by both director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis, another documentary called My Life Directed By Nicholas Winding Refn from the titular Drive filmmaker’s wife, and the terror tale Starry Eyes, in which an actress’ desperate ambition leads her down a very dark path indeed (we’ll say no more!).
