Finding time the first weekend of Fantastic Fest to get multiple people together to record their opinions on what they’ve seen is not entirely unlike herding cats, but we’re less adorable and more smelly. Nonetheless we made it happen. Chris, Richard and JC got together in one of the Alamo Drafthouse‘s private karaoke rooms to sing the praises of what they’d seen so far.



The director of Harry Brown brings us to the world of three women, abandoned by their patriarch (who is probably dead in the Civil War) who have to fight off two union soldiers who are stopping by for more than scones and tea.



Evil stuff seems to be terrifying/possessing some girls left over Xmas break at their private school.



A woman gets handed off the keys to caretake a gigantic, old, and creepy house and after being told the previous caretaker killed themselves, she is left to her own devices. As she explores the estate and time passes, she starts to lose control.



The legendary Takashi Miike returns to the style of his earlier films with this bat-shit crazy tale of yakuza vampires, giant frog-suited god-men, and lots of bloody battles.

We also discuss the japanese documentary about a disabled wrestling league called Doglegs and the doc about the history of the Turkish film industry (which is kind of insane), Remake, Remix, Rip-Off.

Stay tuned as more Fantastic Fest reviews are coming very soon!

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
