Overlook Film Festival, fostul Stanley Festival, si-a desemnat castigatorul! Este vorba de filmul HOUNDS OF LOVE, ales de juriul format din Eric Kohn (Indiewire), Alicia Malone (Fandango) si Sam Zimmerman (Shudder) care a primit si Premiul Publicului.
“HOUNDS OF LOVE blew us away with its brilliant combination of gripping horror conventions and kitchen sink realism. Rich with tense performances and complex insight into working class struggles, it’s all the more impressive because it’s a first feature. We’re going to be talking about the movie – and this filmmaker – for a long time.
Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
Un alt film care a captat atentia juriului a fost STILL/BORN, un “pregnancy horror” premiat cu Scariest Feature Award.
