Head on over to Fantastic Fest Online’s page and you’ll see something awesome- all this week they’re showing off movies for free! All you need to do is complete a simple registration and you’re right there and ready to check out some critically acclaimed films on your computer, in high definition, no less! This is awesome for anyone who can’t make it down to the yearly horror/fantasy/scifi festival, especially since it sold out in no time at all this year.
Here’s the list of movies available.
Dr. Infierno (Spain)
A demented gynecologist discovers a cure for all the world’s illnesses
and uses it as leverage to become sole dictator of the earth.
Jam-packed with monsters, kung fu, battling robots and deviant sexual
practices, DR. INFIERNO doesn’t let budget get in the way of executing
a mountain of crazy ideas.
I Think We’re Alone Now (USA)
This fascinating and deeply disturbing documentary takes you deep into
the worlds and obsessions of Kelly McCormick and Jeffery Deane Turner,
who have been separately stalking 80s pop icon Tiffany for nearly 20
La Creme (France)
Under the Christmas tree, unemployed loser François Margin mysteriously
finds a jar of face cream that once applied, temporarily turns him into
the most famous celebrity in France.
Rule of Three (USA)
Set in one night in a seedy hotel, cult Novelist Eric Shapiro’s debut
feature intertwines two stories of sexual encounters gone horribly
South of Heaven (USA)
Two brothers on the wrong side of everyone must face an endless array
of torture, terrors and indignities in this darkly comic and visually
Cam to Cam (France)
Technology and intimacy are at war. This movie is a genuinely creepy exploration of the casualties.
The filmmaking team behind last year’s FF hit THE BIRD, THE MOUSE AND
THE SAUSAGE are back with a new stop-motion food tale that reveals the
hidden nature of pescatorial reproduction.
A botched drug deal spirals out of control in a subterranean night club
filled with unnameable evils. The action is furious and so are the
villains, so be prepared for some whirlwind brutality!
Rojo Red (Columbia)
Some people complain about their life unraveling, but it’s rarely as
pronounced as in this whimsical, bizarre short from a young Colombian
visualist already on par with mighty artists like Michel Gondry.
HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN creators Jason Eisener and Rob Cotterill imagine a
yuletide season where the Christmas trees finally even the score for
decades of living under the axe of mankind.
That last one’s definitely going to be a hit online. I’m also pretty excited to be able to check out Doctor Hell (Dr. Infierno), as I’ve heard great things about it. All of these films are free courtesy of bside.com and available online through next Sunday. Make sure to vote on them, as there will be prizes and awards given out to those with the best ratings.
Expect to see read much more on this year’s Fantastic Fest as Devin is making his way down there. If you see him there and have a film in the competition try and be extra nice to him, because he’s also on the Horror Shorts Jury.
