The Fantasia Film Festival started yesterday, my favourite film festival in the whole wide world - amongst those that I don't actually run that is.
Fantasia programs the fantastic, the bizarre, the gruesome, the horrible and the just plain weird. They were the first festival in North America to play Ringu. Fantasia was off the J-Horror craze in search of Korea and Thailand before most people even caught on to Japanese Horror as a cool trend.
Tickets are $8.00 or 10 for $70, so I have a list of twenty films to see. A friend of mine (Ken Hwang) just e-mailed me today to tell me that he has a ticket for me for one of the twenty on my list, so I have to pick a 21st film.
Here is my current plan-to-see at Fantasia film list (linkaged with the imdb page in the title where available and the Fantasia fest page in my one sentence description summary based on my understanding of the full length Fantasia description):
