Buffy cult takes to the movies
Can a cult phenomenon be manufactured? In the case of Joss Whedon’s "Buffyverse," it helps to have a head start. The series has been off the air for almost three years, but it’s spawned legions of loyal fans salivating over, among other things, the Season 8 comic book debuting next month. And this coming Friday and Saturday, February 19-20, fans will gather at the IFC Center in NYC to celebrate the 26th birthday of their fictional heroine for two nights of trivia, games and a midnight showing of the Sing-A-Long episode of the TV show, led by IFC’s in-house live Buffy cast. Rumor has it tickets to the event go quickly, so can queuing up in costumes be far behind?
