Although I run the risk of sounding like some sort of stargazing hayseed for saying as much, but, one of these days, I’m going to make the trip to the Fantasia Film Festival. It sounds like something I would thoroughly enjoy, though my current location, coupled with the expenditures associated with travel, prevent me from embarking on this particular adventure right now. However, if, unlike myself, you’re going to attend this year’s festival, be sure to take in a screening of Fatal Pictures’ intriguing horror short “Familiar”. The damned thing is amazing as hell, which means you should check it out if you’re going to be in the area.
Here’s the skinny straight from the company’s press release:
Fatal Pictures is proud to announce Familiar, a new horror short starring Robert Nolan, Astrida Auza and Cathryn Hostick as the seemingly idyllic yet ultimately doomed Dodd Family. Familiar has been included in the Fantasia Film Festival 2012 lineup.
Familiar was written and directed by Richard Powell, produced by Zach Green. Cinematography & co-produced by Michael Jari Davidson with
special F/X provided by Ryan Louagie, Carlos Henriques and Steven Dawley (The Butcher Shop). Music & Sound Design by Bernie Greenspoon.
Familiar is the story of a series of tragic events leading a middle-aged man to grow to suspect the negative impulses plaguing his mind may not be his own.
I honestly can’t say enough good things about the flick or the folks at Fatal Pictures. These guys know what they’re doing, and as soon as their feature length endeavor drops on the unsuspecting masses, expect yours truly to jump all over it. While you’re waiting for the Fantasia Film Festival to get here, read my review of “Familiar” and investigate my interview with produce Zach Green. The trailer, meanwhile, lies below.
