This time Chris sits down with Ashley (That’s right, Ashley! I know, right?) to go through some of her favorite films to play Fantastic Fest this year, and most of them are by first time directors. Let’s take a look at what you get…



This co-production between Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli gives us the precious (some might say TOO precious, but what do they know?) story of a shipwrecked man who is prevented from leaving his island by a giant turtle, but then other stuff happens and OMG life is awesome, amiright?



A young woman attends veterinary school (with the most heinous freshman hazing ever) and finds her vegetarianism challenged when a reluctant first taste of raw meat leads to an obsession with it, and not from conventional sources either. Also, lots of sister bonding and total win.



A drug running boat filled with bales of cocaine capsizes of the Irish coast and two young, dumb friends decide all their problems will be solved if they make the long bike ride there and grab one of the bales that has washed up for themselves. Definitely one of the funniest films of the festival.



This Laotian horror follows a young girl who is staying with her aunt, who is going blind, to take care of her. When it turns out the Aunt keeps having visions of ghoulish figures that send her into trances, her niece discovers that her creepy whispers are of guaranteed winning lottery numbers.

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.
