The end of March promises not to go out like the traditional lamb as the Chattanooga Film Festival returns for its third year, bringing with it a cavalcade of new films, new guests, and new rumors.

The Movie Crypt: Ep 204: LIVE In Chattanooga!

On Saturday April 8, 2017 Adam and Joe performed an episode of The Movie Crypt in front of a live audience at the Chattanooga Film Festival in Tennessee. The filmmakers were on hand to present 10th Anniversary screenings of Green’s HATCHET and Lynch’s WRONG TURN 2 as well as Lynch’s new film MAYHEM — which took home the festival’s most prestigious award of all… “The Audience Choice Award!” In this episode they conduct audience Q&As about HATCHET and WRONG TURN 2, have a conversation about putting on a film festival with CFF’s director Chris Dortch, bring back a retired segment that is an audience favorite, and are joined by one of the podcast’s most favorite guests – C. Robert Cargill (DR. STRANGE, SINISTER). You’re gonna have as much FUN listening to this one as the boys had recording it!

2017 heralds the arrival of the fourth Chattanooga Film Festival and the first year I have been able to attend. In its relatively short existence, the festival has acquired a stellar reputation with its programming of indie genre offerings and promises to be a treasure trove of films for DAILY GRINDHOUSE readers looking for something new.
