What's the connection between a half-man/half-moose creature, an 8-mile caravan route, one of America's most beautiful national parks and a small-town movie theater?
They all come together in the small town of Bicknell, Utah, just a few miles west of Capitol Reef National Park in central Utah. That's where the Bicknell International Film Festival, an unabashedly weird two-day celebration of B-movies, makes its return this Friday and Saturday after a five-year absence.
This year's theme is "Alaska: Films Worth Freezing For … in July," and opens with a homemade horror-comedy, "Moose: The Movie," in which park rangers are confronted by a "moosetaur." Read more about the movie, the festival, and the renovated movie theater that hosts it, here at sltrib.com.
