Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review: The Sadness
Screening at Fantasia Fest 2021, this is a zombie/plague movie that cuts way too close to home, is absolutely disgusting, shocking and all around amazing.
Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review: Martyrs Lane
Martyrs Lane is a truly gorgeous film on every level. The story unfolds in such a perfect way and Kiera Thompson as Leah does just as much emotional heavy lifting as Gough. Writer/director Ruth Platt expertly shows the world through the eyes of a child in a genuine, non-pandering, way. This is a ghost story that not only delivers on the supernatural front, but on the emotional one as well.
Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review: #Blue_Whale
Teenagers and the internet are a beast that no one has yet figured out how to tame and this easily lends itself to horror: both in real life and on the screen. With it’s world premiere at Fantasia Festival, #Blue_Whale explores how the internet can easily seduce unhappy teens into dangerous games.
Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review: Hellbender

Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review: The Last Thing Mary Saw
A film that is scary through the actions of humans as opposed to something other worldly.
Fantasia Film Festival 2021 Review – Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror
Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched is a truly engrossing history lesson that, in my opinion, should be mandatory viewing.
