Thankfully our prayers have been answered and the Fantasia International Film Festival 2020 is going ahead! This year Fantasia is happening in cyberspace, screening virtually to Canadian audiences.

FILM REVIEW: VOLITION

VOLITION is a Canadian sci-fi thriller which explores themes of fate and free will. It enmeshes the concepts of clairvoyance and time travel in a way that seems so obviously perfect, yet it is one of the only films to do so. The film is directed by Tony Dean Smith

FILM REVIEW: BUTT BOY

What’s in a name? That’s the first thing I asked myself when I received my screener copy for Epic Pictures BUTT BOY. An unusual name indeed. What would follow would be an even more unusual experience making an effort  to live up to that name. In the spirit of full

FILM REVIEW: VIVARIUM

The whole world is living in an indefinite quarantine, locked down in their homes. Collectively, we are all wondering, “when can we go back to a normal life?”. What a felicitous time to watch a film about a couple trapped in a tranquil yet horrific suburbia setting. VIVARIUM is a

Film Review: Automation

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a Christmas themed horror movie. Just in time is the film AUTOMATION, which technically still counts as a holiday horror even if it’s main focus is the dark side of technology. It’s no TREEVENGE (a personal favorite), but this office

FILM REVIEW: THE FIELD

With the unprecedented success of films such as MIDSOMMAR and HEREDITARY, it’s fair to say that cults have played a major role in some of horrors more recent greatest hits. On first glance, Tate Bunker’s new film THE FIELD could be misrepresented as jumping on that taboo bandwagon. In actuality,

FILM REVIEW: PERFECT

Independent science fiction has consistently provided us with food for thought by scaling back and stripping down stories to put the focus on the future and the ramifications it will have on us as people. The desired effect is to appeal to our humanity.  However, trying to find that “perfect”

FILM REVIEW: THE LAPLACE’S DEMON

Having recently finished up its festival run, I’m rooting for GIORDANO GIULIVI’s (APOLLO 54) latest cerebral horror flick THE LAPLACE’S DEMON. Now available on iTunes, Prime Video and more On Demand platforms in the US and Canada, this little gem will hopefully make some waves and find its audience. And

Premiering at last year’s Fantastic Fest, the film is going on to have a theatrical release in select US cinemas this month. STARFISH is an intimate spin on the post-apocalyptic subgenre.

FILM REVIEW: SILENCIO

Isolated in the arid high deserts of Northern Mexico, at the junction of Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango, spanning about 50 kilometers across, lies the Zona Del Silencio or “Zone Of Silence”. Often considered Mexico’s answer to the Bermuda Triangle, it is a literal hot bed of bizarre phenomenon. The perplexing anomalies
