  1. Fantasia Film Fest 2016: A Review of "La Rage du Demon"

    Paris, January 2012. The famous film collector Edgar Wallace invites the media to the screening of a film from 1897, long assumed lost and sometimes regarded as an outright myth: “La Rage du Demon”. According to some, the film is by Georges Méliès, or perhaps Victor Sicarius, a forgotten friend of the fantasy film pioneer. The screening becomes a nightmare, the audience gripped by a murderous frenzy — as it has every time the film has inexplicably surfaced, once in each century.

  2. Fantasia Film Fest 2016: A Review of "The Love Witch"

    A modern-day witch (Samantha Robinson) uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s pulp novels and Technicolor melodramas.

    Making its Canadian premiere at Fantasia on July 16, “The Love Witch” swooped in to Montreal with high recommendations.

  5. Fantasia Film Fest 2016: A Review of "Bed of the Dead"

    Four twentysomethings find themselves stuck on a cursed antique bed where leaving means suffering a gruesome death. Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are ultimately picked off one by one.

    When I first heard the title and skimmed the plot, I thought perhaps this was a loose remake of “Death Bed: The Bed That Eats”, which has become something of a small cult classic thanks to the comedy routine that Patton Oswalt built around ...
