The organizers behind the Ithaca International Film Festival in upstate New York have released promotional artwork from comic and video game industry veteran Steve Ellis (The Only Living Boy, Green Lantern Corps). Now in its fourth year, Iifff celebrates the weird and the wild in International cinema. The annual program includes a competition of genre films from around the world as well as a retrospective showcase of cult classics and genre heavyweights. The art from Ellis, who has created the poster every year since the festival’s inception, is always one of the highlights of the buildup to the event in November.
This year’s Iifff retrospective promises to be the most skin-crawling yet with Organic Horror: Obsessions with Body Alterations. Ellis’s moody and evocative image appropriates iconography from several of the films that will be screened, including Georges Franju’s Eyes Without A Face, Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession, »

Debutant Raheem Sterling missed the chance to score on his debut after breaking clear on goal only to see his shot saved by Myhill.
West Brom’s only real chance fell to James Morrison who »

Enjoying a healthy festival run after its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and a tour that brought it to SXSW and Toronto, Adam Wingard’s The Guest arrives on Blu-ray shortly after scoring a nod for Best Editing at the Independent Spirit Awards (though it’s unfortunate there wasn’t any room for some other awards love, such as for cinematography for Dan Stevens). Making their return to distribution, the Picturehouse folks grossed north of a quarter of a million at the box office, and the film had releases in multiple regions across the globe.
