Fantasia 2021 Round Up

The Fantasia International Film Festival‘s 25th Edition brought a huge line-up of feature and short films. Here is a post collating all my coverage from the festival, including a few words on things that don’t have their own full reviews.

Keri of Warped Perspective kindly contributed a review of Kratt and allowed me to post my take on the Radical Spirits short film block there too.

You can find my review of dark British comedy Paul Dood’s Deadly Lunch Break at Horrified.

I also caught claustrophobic, dystopian chiller Tin Can, set to be released in 2022 that features some fascinating special effects. For further short films I experienced Sexy Furby, an unusual (to say the least) love story involving a woman who finds herself in an unconventional relationship with someone with an array of unique talents. By contrast, Miss Mary Mack is a spooky story of two sisters who find the truth at the heart of a seemingly harmless rhyme while a personal crisis looms. Elsewhere, incredibly jolting Timothy had an impact on me as an imaginary friend causes very real damage. My last mention from the shorts is Cloudy Blood, a short and funny short with an excellent punchline.
