We've been at Fantastic Fest for a week, you guys! I'm so proud of us! Tomorrow's the final day, but we've got plenty of DISHOOM left in us yet. 

Let's talk about Day Six! We had our second annual STAR WARS drink competition, where bartenders from all over the Alamo Drafthouse family created delicious cocktails inspired by a galaxy far, far away. 

We had great screenings and Q&As for ALOYS, POPOZTHE INVISIBLE GUEST, the EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE compilation and the SHORT FUSE lineup. 

And Zack Carlson brought the bloody sequel to 100 BEST KILLS with THE MIRACLE OF DEATH, a tribute to the disgusting, horrifying miracle that is childbirth. Here's a glimpse behind the curtain for you guys, a little inside baseball: yesterday, I received an email that included the sentence "I have the cigars and will bring them when I deliver the demon semen." 

Thanks to our pals Nerdist for this great video recap of Day 3!
