Thoughts on the SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA collection from this year's Fantasia Fest
A man gets his DNA results and a mask that lets him see the slave ship of his ancestors.
This is a great looking horror film that has some creepy moments that doesn’t quite work as well as the moments because the film has a few too many unanswered questions. It almost works but doesn’t
This left me feeling torn. I love that spam callers were in danger of losing their life if they didn’t make the sale but at the same time you feel bad that it’s a possibility….
A dog sitter is faced with a cute puppy who is a homicidal maniac.
If you’ve ever had a dog or a cat you’ll really relate. I mean really relate.
A woman is left by the side of the road by her obnoxious boyfriend. She finds a scooter and rides off, running into trouble outside a burger joint, as something begins killing people.
Feminist horror film is a kick in the pants. While not really scary it still kicks serious ass with its tale of vengeance. I have to say that this film does more in its brief time to say about female empowerment than a couple of features with similar takes that played Fantasia.
The moody and heartbreaking story of a young girl who goes in the forest to find the spirit who collects the stories of the dead.
This is an utterly heartbreaking chiller that is pitch perfect from start to finish.
Magnificent film about a young girl who can connect to the spirits inside people. She is sought out to help with exorcisms, but is having doubts about what she does,
Absolutely wonderful character study in the guise of a horror film. A must.
I CALL UPON THEE
Two little girls recite a spell with unexpected, and monstrous, consequences.
This is why you don’t mess around with magic unless you know what the heck you are doing.
Grand masterpiece that is close to a single take story of two young girls on a remote island when their mommy goes crazy.
This is as chilling a horror film as you will see all year or maybe ten.
Lucienne in a World without Solitude
In a world where everyone travels with an exact double of themselves, a woman becomes obsessed by a man who has lost his double.
This is a really good fantasy film that maybe a bit too long. Still the ending packs a punch.
