Fantastic Film 2 – Nights of the Living

Six of this year’s best films of the fantastic – horror, sci-fi, action, and comedy – are all about unexpected visitors, and not the nice kind. It’s more the kind that crawls up in your bed at night and refuses to leave, or mythological ghosts from Thailand that come to demand the ultimate horror movie soundtrack, or the Finnish dick monsters that haunt you with their dick picks.
