To Be Continued
A young girl (Lou Deleuze) accompanies her nail beautician mother to meet new clients in an imposingly large home. There, she meets three girls who bring her away from the adults to play a uniquely cruel board game downstairs. Joséphine Darcy Hopkins’ third work to bless the Fantasia screen, following THE DAY MY MOTHER BECAME A MONSTER (2017) and CLOUD (2020), SWEET TOOTH pieces perfectly into her gripping, character-driven oeuvre of genre storytelling, with startling performances, potent allegorical weight and moments of shock that will freeze you. – Mitch Davis
Kiah McKirnan and Alicia Silverstone star in Jennifer Reeder’s dreamy and blood-soaked queer feminist horror/comedy that drips with shapeshifting, telepathy, slasher codes, and body horror.
A domestic worker desperate to provide for herself and her daughter discovers a dark secret hidden by her wealthy employer. Winner of a 2023 SXSW Grand Jury Award.
Kenneth Dagatan’s second feature film is a Filipino folk-horror fairy tale to freeze the blood in your veins, a gory, gothic nightmare in a time and place of perfidy, dread, and desolation.
