Fantasia Film Festival 2018: THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW review

Running Time: 1hr 17min
Release Date: July 23, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written/Directed by: Andy Mitton

Review by: Stacey

Call me a sucker for any supernatural flicks involving witches, double points if it takes place in rural farmhouses. Oh hey, whaddya know, Andy Mitton's The Witch in the Window has all of that! Ok, it has all of that but doesn't exactly go down like you would think it does.

Fantasia Film Festival 2018: PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH

Running Time: 1hr 24min
Release Date: July 21, 2018 (Fantasia Fest), Aug 17 (theatrical/VOD)
Written by: S. Craig Zahler
Directed by: Sonny Laguna, Tommy Wiklund

Review by: Stacey

Man, I have such fond memories of renting the earlier titles on VHS when I was a little gal and not so much being scare of them, but being fun-scared! Is that a thing? Well, I'm making it a thing! You know what I mean, though? The puppets were murderous and ugly and creepy and I should have been TERRIFIED of them flat out, but they were also almost like the anti-heroes and at times I would find myself rooting for them.

It doesn't seem like that's the case in Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, however. The master, Toulon (played by none other than Udo Kier), was an evil one this time around, and his minions followed suit, killing innocent (for the most part) people. At the writing helm was S. Craig Zahler who was responsible for films like Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99, so I knew it was going to be a bloody good time.

Running Time: 1hr 38min
Release Date: July 20, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written/Directed by:  Robert D. Krzykowski

Review by: Stacey

I know I wasn't the only one who was really excited to see Krzykowski's feature length debut based off of the title alone- but couple that with THE Sam Elliott in the lead?? C'mon, it was a no-brainer that I was going to have to see this with my own eyes and report back to my readers about this one. And check out that awesome poster (I was tweeted earlier today and informed that the poster art was created by Johnny Tabor)!

Ok ok, I'm going to have to pump the brakes and let you all know that what you're going to find yourself getting into isn't exactly what you're thinking. And I can say that confidently because I'm sure that we ALL had an idea of what we thought this movie was going to be about. Well, it wasn't exactly...and that's not a bad thing!

Fantasia Film Festival 2018: THE NIGHT EATS THE WORLD

Running Time: 1hr 33min
Release Date: July 13, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written by: Pit Agarmen (novel), Jeremie Guez, Guillaume Lemans, Dominique Rocher
Directed by: Dominique Rocher

Review by: Stacey

I'm not going to lie, I went into this one already a little apprehensive because I feel like I've been burned out on zombie flicks for quite some time now and figured I was going to be given another variation of the same tired old story that we've seen too many times. Well, while I was surprised to find that The Night Eats The World wasn't just another rehashed zombie flick, I ended up wishing it had been...
