JAKOB’S WIFE

Dutiful wife Anne (Barbara Crampton) spends her days supporting — well, let’s be honest, more like serving — her husband and town Pastor Jakob (Larry Fessenden).

PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN

Written and Directed by Steven Kostanski, PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN is an absolutely hilarious 80s throwback that mashes up sci-fi and comedy with extreme gore.  Mimi (Nita-Josee Hanna) triumphs over her brother Luke (Owen Myre) in her made-up game of “Crazy Ball,” with the loser agreeing to be buried alive — this really sets up the

FANTASIA 2020 REVIEW: SPECIAL ACTORS

Wow wow wow. Shin’ichirô Ueda’s follow up to ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is fantastic! SPECIAL ACTORS has all the charm and comedy of DEAD, and while OCOTD was a love letter to indie filmmaking, ACTORS is an equally compelling love letter to performers.  Aspiring actor Kazuto (Kazuto Osawa) has a major problem standing in
