Special guests today : Sion Sono and Curt Johnson.
Your Mommy Kills Animals, en présence du réalisateur Curt Johnson The Unseeable, présenté au Théâtre Hall à 19h40
Here are few films you cant miss out on :
Diary, the latest horror film from director Pang (The Eye), showing a schizophrenic young woman s cat-and-mouse game between her imagination and reality. Creepy, atmospheric and unsettling,
recalling Takashi Miikes Audition and containing the visual palette of 3 Extremes.
Your Mommy Kills Animals, ultra controversial film about the US governments war against animal activist groups, who have officially been named Americas number One domestic terrorist threat! A must-see. Director Curt Johnson will be here.
The Unseeable, stylish director Wisit Sasanatieng (TEARS OF THE BLACK TIGER, CITIZEN DOG) ventures into the horror arena with his masterful piece of mood cinema. Sasanatieng puts that still-active belief in the supernatural to great effect, loading his film with layer upon layer of hidden images, a brooding score and the sure sense that nothing is ever quite what it seems. Canadian premiere
Hazard, the last thing you would expect from the director of STRANGE CIRCUS is this straightforward coming-of-age story. Filmed in 2002 in both Japan and New York, but not released until now, Hazard illustrates the infliction of Western culture done by a foreigh student until he discorvers the ugliness of the American dream. Director Sion Sono will be here.
Hatchet, this wildly entertaining & unbelievably extreme homage to early 80s slasher films has been blowing international fest audiences away since it launched at Tribeca. Its a perfect horror/comedy that delivers the goods and then some, made by a lifelong fan Adam Greene (whose wholly different SPIRAL is also screening at Fantasia this year), featuring appearances by Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Joel Moore, Mercedes McNab and Tony Todd. Will be hitting theatres in the fall.
