This is seriously one of my favorite film festivals of the year and once again, it is jam packed with a lineup of genre films with both virtual and in person screenings from August 5th through August 25th. I had a hard time narrowing down this incredible list of films so I went with 25 "TwoOhSix Picks" this year.
