Day 6 of Fantastic Fest 2010 beat me up and made me want my mommy. Kidnapped, Mutant Girls Squad and Cold Fish each elicited such an unpleasant emotional response that afterwards, the only answer was to run away from the Drafthouse and hang out with friends. That’s probably a valid response to what Fantastic Fest is all about, though, films that rock you to your core and portray brutality. Still, despite their graphic nature, two of the films were actually pretty incredible. The other? Not so much. Hit the jump to read about three movies that took me to Hell and back.
With Fantastic Fest 2010 in Austin, Texas mere weeks away, the third wave of films playing the festival has been announced. Among the highlights are Darren Bousman’s thriller Mother’s Day starring Rebecca De Mornay, Guy Moshe’s Bunraku with Woody Harrelson and Josh Hartnett and Red, starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and many more. Add these to the previous announcements of the World Premiere of Sharktopus, special screenings of Let Me In, Buried, Stone, I Spit on Your Grave and more, Fantastic Fest certainly sounds like it’ll live up to its name.
Hit the jump for more details on the third wave including two repertory screenings featuring Bill Pullman.
