Is it possible to set an entire film on a computer screen? Yes! In the new thriller Open Windows, Elijah Wood plays a blogger obsessed with an actress named Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) who is persuaded to spy on the star by an unseen but seemingly helpful third party.

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.
Lou Taylor Pucci (the Evil Dead remake) stars in the new movie Spring as a man who, following the death of his mother, travels to Italy and meets a beautiful young woman played by Nadia Hilker. Does the course of true love run smooth? Having seen the film’s trailer, seems safe to tick the box marked “Absolutely not.”
