This is some great news for all of those who can't attend one of the biggest genre festivals in North America, they're going online! Running between September 14th and 20th, 5 features and 6 shorts will be available online, streaming for free. You'll need to signup with BSide to watch, and no, it's not a bunch of crap, they're actually showing two films I'd really like to see, specifically Dr. Infierno and South of Heaven, so check out the full list after the break. Pssst.. what does a Fish without any eyes sound like? Fssshhhhhhhhh.......

Dr. Infierno (Spain)
A demented gynecologist discovers a cure for all the world’s illnesses and uses it as leverage to become sole dictator of the earth.
