Happy Friday people! Our Halloween decorations are slowly coming down and the countdown to October may be starting all over again, but at least we still have a full year of horror movies ahead of us to keep the smile on our faces. And while this weekend is no last weekend in October, it still has some really cool titles and a lot of animation in it. This is the last weekend of Another Hole in the Head film festival, its final day will be this Wednesday the 9th. I hope you guys have at least checked it out, but if not you still have time.

On Aug. 1, 1966, a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes. When the gunshots were finally silenced, the toll included 16 dead, three dozen wounded, and a shaken nation left trying to understand what had happened. Archival footage is combined with rotoscopic animation in a dynamic, never-before-seen way to illustrate the action-packed untold stories of the witnesses, heroes and survivors.
