The Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival


When in the Big Apple…

One of the mainstays of big-budget science fiction flicks of the last 20 years is the literary work of the uniquely twisted writer Philip K. Dick. From Blade Runner to Minority Report & two big-screen versions of Total Recall, PKD continues to be an important, relevant & interesting voice in science fiction. His books are worth reading, too!
For Dick fans in the New York City area, the fourth annual Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival should be a fun way to spend four days. The staff here at The Horror Movie Show wishes we could hop a transcontinental maglev train & be there, along with other members of the Crypt Family.
Here is the content of a press release from the event organizers. Cheers!
