“Trolling: The Movie!” would be an appropriate title for Drib, because it feels like that’s what movie is all about.

As much as I wish we could all get up to Montreal in the summer for their big genre film festival Fantasia Fest (and not just for the fest…it’s %*&% hot down here in Texas) it’s just not in the cards anytime soon.
