The Paris International Fantastic Film Festival has come to an end, and the big winner of its Oeil d’Or (Golden Eye) for Best Film has been awarded to the American-Italian film Spring, directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Unlike most festivals, the audience is the jury in the feature films categories. Benson later took to Twitter to thank the French audience for its support.
The closing ceremony ended with a screening of Kevin Smith’s rather disappointing Tusk, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. Justin Long stars as comedian-turned-podcaster targeted by a sadistic killer who wants to transform him into a walrus. Not even Johnny Depp as the alcoholic ex-cop can save this horror of a film.
