This weekend the Screenland Armour is the home of Panic Fest, a horror and thriller film fest with vendors that acts as general celebration of everything creepy, crawly, and scary. It’s a great fest for people who like their horror a little more off the beaten path than the latest uninspired remake of whatever classic horror film Hollywood is butchering next.

Eric Melin on the KCTV5 It’s Your Morning show talking with Dave Hall about ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ and ‘Air Guitar Nation’ at the Alamo Drafthouse in Kansas City.
