Fantastic Fest To Have Prison Party After “Red Dawn” Premiere

by Dan Koelsch

Fantastic Fest is an annual film festival held at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas. This year, the festival runs from September 20th to September 27th. According to their website, “Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world.” Their traveling road shows often create in-world scenarios for their screenings, such as watching Buried while buried in a coffin. They are doing a similar themed experience at their festival this year, this time pairing up with the Red Dawn remake. Details after the break.


Red Dawn doesn’t open in theaters until November 21st, but it has the honor of being the closing night film of Fantastic Fest. The after-party, however, is where things get real.

Following the World Premiere, Fantastic Fest will transform the Austin American Legion into a maximum-security prison for the ultimate Red Dawn shindig. Prisoners will experience mandatory enjoyment from delousing stations as well as free prison tattoos and head-shaves. Executive chef John Bullington will be doling out wild-game bulgogi, kimchi and piping-hot shots of deer blood while the uniformed detainees enjoy the musical stylings of festival favorite Future Folk.

This seems like a really fun experience, so if you’re going to Fantastic Fest, send us some pics!
