Simplistic Reviews is ‘AT’ Fantasia Fest: A 2020 Preview

I guess we have a busy August ahead over on Simplistic Reviews as we’ll be covering the 2020 Fantasia Film Festival!

Yes; US, Simplistic Reviews, will have our grubby little hands, and opinions, all over this year’s VIRTUAL version of the long-standing film fest.

In this little preview, we’ll highlight some of the best looking flicks that have been announced so far. A taste of what’s to come, if you will.

DINNER IN AMERICA

‘An on-the-lam punk rocker and a young woman obsessed with his band go on an unexpected and epic journey together through the decaying suburbs of the American Midwest.’

Something about ‘DINNER IN AMERICA’ screams early Jason Reitman with the quirky feel of ‘Napoleon Dynamite.’ With so much genre fare, this should lighten the mood before you get into the hard stuff.

TINY TIM: KING FOR A DAY

I feel like even if you don’t know who Tiny Tim is; you know who Tiny Tim is. ‘Tiny Tim: King for a Day’ looks so weird and quirky and peeks behind the curtain of a true oddball piece of Americana.

THE RECKONING

Neil Marshall is already great and seeing what he’s doing with ‘The Reckoning’ is exciting. Plague masks, blunderbusses, witchcraft, the Devil, what more do you really want.

THE MORTUARY COLLECTION

I’m a sucker for a great horror anthology, and it’s looking like ‘The Mortuary Collection’ is going to scratch that itch. From early reviews it’s being called ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark for grown-ups’ and has some promising early buzz. Plus, Clancy Brown.

MONSTER SEAFOOD WARS

‘Monster Seafood Wars’ just looks like pure insanity. Classic kaiju cheese with the nostalgia factor of ‘Power Rangers’ and ‘Ultraman’ with a couple of dashes of j-Drama and even a little commentary on our state of social media and reality TV culture. All that, and a giant crab, squid and octopus on a rampage.

FOR THE SAKE OF VICIOUS

‘For the Sake of Vicious’ is looking like a love letter to ‘Assault on Precinct 13’ with the addition of the always fun element of taking place on Halloween. Really sets the mood if you ask me.

FRIED BARRY

‘Fried Barry’ looks wild. A drug-fueled, hallucinatory, horror show of epic alien-abducting proportions and all sorts of other hijinks. I’m thinking ‘Fire in the Sky’ meets ‘Color Out of Space’ with the manic look and feel of ‘Trainspotting.’

With all 100 films being showcased over the course of nearly two weeks, this is merely a taste, a morsel, of whats on the docket for Fantasia Fest.

Check out the rest of the festival slate HERE.

Fantasia Fest 2020 kicks off on August 20th 2020, and runs until September 2nd, 2020.

Tons of reviews are coming your way all month and maybe a few extra surprises too.

The Simplistic Reviews Podcast: April Edition

It’s that time of the month again, take that as you may, but you won’t need any tampons to listen to April’s Simplistic Reviews Podcast.

In this month’s edition we ponder who is more evil, Red Skull or Adolf Hitler, Sheri Moon Zombie’s ass, and Justin tries to sell Matt on Mad Men, and the P-word gets thrown into the mix.

The guys also test their movie quote knowledge in the new segment, “Simply Quotable,” and do a little Summer movie preview of their own with Iron Man already making waves.

If you like good wholesome family fun, well, find another podcast.  If you like three guys talking out of their ass for over an hour, well, now you’re on the right track with The Simplistic Reviews podcast.

Also, May 6th is National Nightmare Day, a Day to celebrate the 1984 horror classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”  Check over at SlaughterFilm.com for more information.
