The massive losses of John Carter earlier this year loosened the bowels of all the major Hollywood studios. Executives are puzzled as to why their mediocre products are not capturing the hearts and minds of people of all ages across the world.

The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival is that time of year when genre fans from all over gather to sink their teeth into a selection of the year’s best (and often worst) horror, sci-fi and fantasy films. While zombies take over the streets of the Belgian capital in the annual ZomBIFFF parade, the festival itself takes place all under a single roof where BIFFFers, as they come to be known, are treated to an array of genre film merchandise and comic book shops, macabre exhibitions, body painting contests and regular masterclass and Q&A sessions with some of the biggest names in horror and sci-fi; William Friedkin, Terry Gilliam and King of the B-movie Lloyd Kaufman to name but a few.
