Back in person! Finally! Which means that I had to go check this out. I had never been, but have interviewed the fest’s leader Edda Manriquez for Women in Horror Month, so the fest had been on my radar for a long while.
A woman living with her brother is tormented by her coworkers while he commits crimes she has no idea about. Soon, their worlds merge.
It’s almost upon us, the beast is about to be unleashed, and people are about to… Meow? Yet, meow. If you’ve ever attended Fantasia or have seen their promo videos, you’ve heard people meow at each other in the dark. Well, this year, some will be lucky and get to go, others will be watching from home wishing they were there, and we will be bringing you as much coverage as we, well ok I, can.
The annual fest was back again this year out of Toronto, Canada and this year it screened in a theater and on a premium channel in Canada. This hybrid version allowed them to reach as many folx as they could throughout Canada. A few lucky people outside of Canada were given access to part of their films. Here is what Cinema Crazed was able to watch with a little blurb about each!
Final Girls Berlin was doing its thing recently, helping womxn in horror get a wider audience and celebrating creators. This year, a few (or rather many) shorts made their way to eyeballs at Cinema Crazed. Here are a few of the best ones that screened this year.
Picking up a few years after the last scene of FP 2, this third entry in the series takes JTRO and his fam and gets them involved in a new challenge that includes everything from remixed to time travel. Will they manage to figure out what to do in time to save their world?
When left under their grandma’s care while their parents go on vacation, a brother and sister find themselves without electronic devices. When they meet two local kids and find a mysterious book, they work together and awaken a Kratt who is hellbent on causing mayhem if not kept occupied with a job at all times.
