Fall festival season is fast approaching, with the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival and the New York Film Festival each unveiling glimpses of their lineups over the last few weeks. But let's not forget their deviant little Texan cousin, Fantastic Fest. The genre-led festival in Austin, which like the more established events is essentially spring break for movie buffs but with karaoke and queso instead of sex and drugs, is heading into its tenth year and just announced the first additions to its 2014 line-up.

We’re going to need more alphabets. On the back of the success last year’s horror anthology “The ABCs of Death” -- for which 26 directors each directed a short loosely connected to the theme of death and an arbitrary letter of the alphabet -- it looks like we’re going to be getting a sequel, with producers currently shopping the film at Cannes. They’ll be moving beyond exclusively horror directors this time too, with Alex de la Iglesia (“The Last Circus"), Rodney Ascher (“Room 237”) and animator Bill Plympton already signed on, and there will once again be a director’s competition to find the 26th filmmaker.
