Timeout Chicago has a nice story about this years festival.
Halloween is the obvious holiday for an underground film festival, so it is fitting that the 15th anniversary edition of the Chicago Underground Film Festival has moved to late October.

The most horrific thing you will likely find in the festival is filmmaker James Fotopoulosâ€™s disturbing and questionable use of actual beheading footage in his feature-length experimental narrative Sleep Weep (The Zookeeper).
