As part of the Second Wave Announcement last week, it was revealed that the massive Fantasia Film Festival will host thr World Premiere of the special effects heavy indie Demon’s Rook, which looks absolutely insane! From July 18 – August 6, Montreal will be home to a showcase of over 100 feature films from around the world, along with a wealth of special events, conferences, and parties.
From director James Sizemore, Fantasia explains that the film is a micro-budget, monsterific orgy of grue that can only be described as Return of the Living Dead by way of Jodorowsky with a touch of The Neverending Story, shot in Georgia with a nearly all-amateur team, boatloads of heart and a horde of DIY prosthetic creatures.
Check out some incredible new stills, as well as the film’s NSFW official one-sheet and trailer!
“A young boy named Roscoe finds a portal to another world where he is taught magic by an elder demon known as Dimwos. Dimwos raises the boy into manhood, revealing to him many secrets.”
It’s also co-executive produced by celebrated TIFF programmer Colin Geddes and Toronto Film Scene / Exclaim! film critic Katarina Gligorijevic.
The premiere will be hosted by Director/ Actor / Co-Writer James Sizemore and his übergang of DIY magicians & maniacs!
