After a 15 screenings across 11 states, the 8th annual Druid Underground Film Festival plunges into Massachusetts to close the season! A high-powered two-part blast of subversive cinema, DUFF kicks off with a hilarious FOUND FOOTAGE ASSAULT, dynamically mixing the trashiest cuts from amateur monster movies, insane Christian scare films and shocking instruction videos lovingly sourced from the decrepit VHS vaults of DUFF curator Billy Burgess.
