Check out Michael Guillen’s exhaustive preview of this year’s Another Hole in the Head lineup here:

“Back for its 9th year “of psychotic savagery and bloody pandemonium”, San Francisco’s Another Hole In the Head Film Festival (Holehead) runs later this year—November 28th to December 9th, 2012—at its familiar venues the Roxie and Victoria Theatres, with additional screenings at adopted venues the Terra Gallery and the Vortex Room. Boasting 54 films over 11 days, 28 features and 26 shorts, San Francisco’s original genre film festival is characterized by a scrappy, DIY aesthetic that eschews big studio content and recent trends towards elevated genre. Holehead’s programming remains curatorially committed to the genre’s graphic roots in shockploitation, visceral thrills and gleeful mayhem.”

Guillen was especially taken with festival selection Eurocrime! The Italian Cop and Gangster Films that Ruled the 70s,  Mike Malloy’s nearly comprehensive doc on the underappreciated poliziotteschi genre that proliferated in Italy throughout the 1970s. (Eurocrime! screens Sunday Dec 2 at 9:00pm)
