In case you weren’t convinced that Beyond Fest is just a wacky ball of fun, this past Friday Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight was paired with Joe Begos’ Almost Human. The result was a throw-back trip.
I was going to let this screening slide by with nary a word on the topic until I realized that Tales From The Crypt can always use more of the spotlight.
