Fantasia Film Festival: 15th Edition

Posted by Andrés / July 17, 2011

20110716_fantasia.jpgThere is little doubt that Fantasia is the premiere genre film festival in North America, nor that it is the most frenetic and exciting festival of its kind in Montreal. Beginning last Thursday and running to August 7th, it is one of the few times in your life it will be perfectly acceptable to scream, laugh, chant, holler and cause a general ruckus at the theatre.

This year's selection of films promises more of the same enthusiasm from the crowd. Horror films like The Troll Hunter, The Theatre Bizarre and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark provide the screams. Classic screenings such as Cronenberg's Shivers and Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS will provide the collective groans and grimaces. Crazy ADHD-inspired Asian films such as Milocrorze: A Love Story, Ninja Kids!!!, Deadball and Underwater Love (a comedy-musical-softcore film?) will provide the laughs. And any number of martial arts, anime-esque, screwball films will be fodder for the chanting and hollering.

There really is only one way to experience the delirious nature of Fantasia's films, and that's the visit the website, pick a movie, take a chance and go see it. You won't regret it.
