The programmers of the Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival (formerly Dark Bridges) finally settled on the rest of our lineup this year. As was previously announced the festival already includes Zero Theorem, Mood Indigo, Cold in July and Life After Beth. Rounding off this year’s edition are a number of festival favorites and standouts. There are a lot of familiar names in our lineup because heck, these films are just too good not to share them with the audience in Saskatoon.
So we’re going to scare the pants of Saskatoon with Aussie chiller The Babadook. We have added tension breaker, the Kiwi horror comedy Housebound. The festival will end with some good old Nazi Zombie action with Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead.
We’ve got Korean action epic Kundo: Age of Rampant. From Japan we have the immensely entertaining Why Don’t You Play in Hell? There is the Twilight Zone tinged rom-com The One I Love. We get brutal with Icelandic drama Metalhead. We are happy that we got one of the oddest experiences you will ever have with I Am A Knife With Legs. Then there is the haunting horror flick Thou Wast Mild And Lovely which tests the bounds of what horror is. The festival is also happy to present a retro screening of Indonesian cult fave Lady Terminator.
Apart from the films the festival also has a 48 Hour Movie Making Challenge, a short film program, the annual Zombie Walk and we are bringing the Found Footage Festival to town!
