In 2011, the Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival buzzed with The Dead, a zombie movie set against the open spaces of Africa. This year, the Ford brothers return with a sequel that takes the action to India and ramps up the action, violence, and drama. Directors Howard and Jonathan Ford will answer questions about their movie at their Q&A session on October 26.
Several years ago, Richard Stanley (Dust Devil, Hardware) had an inexplicable experience in the French locality of Montségur. Its impact made the filmmaker decide to return to the area and shoot a feature-length documentary about the esoteric mysteries there. I will host a Q&A session on The Otherworld on October 27 and will be joined by director Richard Stanley and composer Simon Boswell.
For more than a year, director Kate Shenton filmed several groups of people who pierce themselves with hooks and hang in mid-air from rigs. On Tender Hooks explores a wide variety of experiences and opinions on the subject and shows us how the human body can achieve extraordinary things. Shenton will be present for the screening and Q&A of her documentary on November 1st.
