A Couple of Fantastic Fest films

Unlike some of my friends, I didn't get a pass to Fantastic Fest, the new festival of genre and horror films being held down at Alamo South Lamar, but I have just purchased a couple of tickets for Friday evening. I'll be seeing the 7PM screening of "G.O.R.A.", a Turkish sci-fi comedy that pays homage to lots of works, and the 9:45PM screening of "Night of the Living Dorks", a German teen flick that's been described as the "Weird Science" of zombie films. I don't really like straight horror films too much, but when mixed with dark comedy, they can be quite appealing.
