Beyond Fest will close with Blumhouse and Beyond Fest alumni Christopher Landon receiving a world premiere for his body-swap slasher movie Freaky, to be paired with a special screening of Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil. And Adam Egypt Mortimer will bring his latest movie, Archenemy, for a world bow, while Steven Kostanski's Psycho Goreman will receive a North American premiere and Bryan Bertino's The Dark and the Wicked is set for a U.S. bow.

“We covet the theatrical experience above all and following the overwhelming success of our drive-in program we never hesitated in keeping Beyond Fest a physical experience” Beyond Fest co-founder Christian Parkes said in a statement.

Also booked into Beyond Fest is Rose Glass’ Saint Maud; Justin Simien’s Bad Hair; Neil Marshall's The Reckoning and Brandon Cronenberg's Possessor Uncut.
