2013 Chicago Underground Film Festival: Official Lineup

The mighty and all-powerful Chicago Underground Film Festival has done the absolute unthinkable: Reached their 20th year of operation! How many underground festivals have accomplished that feat? None, until now! Well, “now” being March 6-10 at the fest’s new location: The Logan Theatre.

Play It Now: Peter Javipour's 'Rambo: Last Blood'

Troubled vet John Rambo confronts a lifetime of killing in this free Flash game.

You can check out the game at the Rambo: Last Blood page.

Thanks to the brilliant @krazoff for pointing this out.
