Infestation: Fantastic Fest 2019: The Sixth Round

Fantastic Fest reviews of VFW and Synchronic


Wow, we saw a lot of movies at Fantastic Fest this year and our coverage continues with a look at two big hits at the festival. VFW is about some old grizzled war vets at their local VFW bar who are drawn into a bloody Assault on Precinct 13-ish confrontation with a never-ending pack of drug-crazed punks. Led by legendary actors like Stephen Lang, William Sadler, Fred “The Hammer” Williamson, Martin Kove, and David Patrick Kelly, we were crazy for VFW‘s Midnight Movie ambiance. Then there’s Synchronic, the new film from The Endless director/writers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, featuring Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan as two EMTs that discover a dangerous new drug on the streets that is causing some seriously weird deaths. And that’s not even close to all the Fantastic Fest reviews we have coming…more on the way!
