Montreal genre fest announces final 2016 titles.
Montreal’s massive and massively awesome genre film festival Fantasia has just announced the final titles of its 2016 lineup. And they’re a pair of heavy hitter horrorshows.
For the grand finale of Fantasias 20th anniversary edition, the fest will present the Canadian Premiere of co-writer/director Fede Alvarezs terrifying new film DONT BREATHE, in which a trio of friends break into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking theyll get away with the perfect heist. Theyre wrong. Screening will be hosted by Alvarez himself. Like Alvarez’s US debut EVIL DEAD, DONT BREATHE is produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert along with Alvarez. Sony Pictures will release the film in North America on August 26, 2016.
Hot off its premiere at Cannes, the powerhouse Mel Gibson thriller BLOOD FATHER, directed by Jean-François Richet (MESRINE, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13), will be having its first North American screening at Fantasia as both part of the festivals closing night events and the official closing film of the Action! section. BLOOD FATHERs impressive cast also features Erin Moriarty, Elisabeth Röhm, William H. Macy, Diego Luna, Dale Dickey, Thomas Mann, and Michael Parks.
See you at Fantasia!
