FILM REVIEW: ROBBERY (TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL)

It’s the 13th year of the TORONTO AFTER DARK (TAD) film festival and year after year, it just keeps getting better.  Much like Montreal’s FANTASIA film festival, TAD is not horror specific. These festivals are for sci-fi, genre, action, fantasy and more.  That makes for some really interesting and formidable

FILM REVIEW: LIFECHANGER (Fantasia Film Festival 2018)

Fantasia Film Festival has come to an end, it was a wild ride and I’m already looking forward to next year. The last film I’m reviewing from Fantasia actually premiered closer to the beginning of the fest, but it is one that I had to chew on for a while

FILM REVIEW: SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA (FANTASIA 2018)

As the 2018 Fantasia International Film Festival comes to a close, it certainly brought us all manner of genre treats. As is the case with most film festivals, the shorts program is often the strongest, and fastest selling ticket in town. Few fests do the shorts programs as much justice

FILM REVIEW: HEAVY TRIP (FANTASIA 2018)

Alright, I know what you’re thinking: “Not ANOTHER mockumentary about a symphonic, post-apocalyptic, reindeer-grinding, Christ abusing, extreme war, Pagan, FennoScandian metal band on a mission from Satan!” Trust me, I felt the same going into HEAVY TRIP (HEVI REISSU), which played recently at FANTASIA 2018. I decided to push my

Film Review: ROKUROKU: THE PROMISE OF THE WITCH (Fantasia Film Festival 2018)

Fantasia Film Fest has been delivering the weird and wonderful as well as the scary this year. With a tonne of Japanese content this year I couldn’t pass up the chance to see at least one film from the country. What made me choose ROKUROKU: THE PROMISE OF THE WITCH

Blue My Mind (Fantasia 2018)

Many fantasy and horror-fantasy film deal with monstrous changes as an allegory for female puberty. Think of films such as GINGER SNAPS, JENNIFER’S BODY and the more recent RAW and it is clear that a sexual awakening as a young woman can be monstrous. The newest films to tackle this
