Fantasia Fest Roundup Day 1: Little Sister, Slash & Love Witch
This week, ComingSoon.net has made the trek to Montreal, Quebec for the 20th anniversary edition of the Fantasia International Film Festival, the largest genre festival in North America. We’re at the tail end of the festivities, which will screen films until August 3, but we are going to run capsule reviews of some of the things we have seen and people we have talked to.
Today we roundup three films that focus on outsiders and subcultures, be it goths (Little Sister), slash fiction writers (Slash) or contemporary witches (The Love Witch).
