The lineup of this year’s Fantasy Filmfest Nights proves once again that this specialty event is successful for a reason: the folks don’t just pick good genre movies, they pick good movies, period.
For starters, this might be your last chance to see Yorgos Lanthimos’ incisive dystopian relationship comedy The Lobster on the big screen. Elsewhere, the hellishly tense slasher flick Green Room, set in the neo-Nazi punk rock scene featuring Patrick Stewart as a ruthless skinhead, is also an essential cinematic experience with plenty of edge-of-your-seat moments, and the British end-times thriller The Survivalist is a beautifully crafted, deeply unsettling indie gem.
Need insane car chases and choreographed fights to go along with a mystery and some slapstick? Korean cop actioner Veteran has that covered. With Emelie in the programme, even the time-honoured niche of evil babysitters is represented. In short, yet another perfect occasion to celebrate our inner weirdoes of every persuasion.
