For nearly 20 years, Montreals Fantasia International Film Festival has been a hub of horror, a North American must where world cinema discoveries and anticipated premieres sit side by side. Its a destination for the very first audiences a genre film can have, and an essential stop on the circuit for well-received titles. This year, with a massive lineup and now annual industry market, Frontieres, is no different. Shock Till You Drop will be in Montreal from July 23-28th, just five days of the three weeks this beast spans. In anticipation of the fest, Ive put together a look at twenty of its 135 features, highlighting 10 to anticipate and 10 I very much recommend.
The Fantasia International Film Festival is currently underway. For lineup and tickets, visit Fantasia.
