SXSW Midnight Lineup & Short Films Announced

Last week we gave you the breakdown on some cool horror titles and other genre-friendly entries from Austin's upcoming South By Southwest Festival, and now we've got even more good news: the promoters have now announced the fest's Midnighters lineup, as well as the short film selections – and there's a gold mine of horror entries in there too. The Midnighters include world premieres of Mike Mendez's monster epic Big Ass Spider! (formerly Mega Spider – check out our interview with Mike here), Vincenzo Natali' s Haunter starring Abigail Breslin, vampire romance Kiss of the Damned and supernatural thriller Cheap Thrills. Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem will see its Us premiere, and S-vhs (aka V/Hs/2) will also be screening, along with Adam Wingard's You're Next. The short film lineup is huge, weighing in at over a hundred selections, with many horror and extreme cinema titles among them.
