Earlier today the LA Film Fest came out and announced its lineup for this years film festival which will take place from June 13th to the 23rd in Los Angeles, California. Quite a few films will be making their premiere at the festival in categories ranging from documentaries, to short films, to narratives and so on and so forth. However, we’re a horror crowd with sensible tastes. Which of the many films debuting at LA Film Fest interest us the most? Journey down below to find out.
One of the biggest films making it’s North American debut is Nicholas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, which stars Ryan Gosling as an American expat in Bangkok’s brutal underworld. It’s not horror per se, but I think there might be an interest from this community to check out that film.
Next up is a film that’s making it’s WORLD PREMIERE at the festival and that’s Brian Netto’s Delivery. Here’s a brief synopsis of this interesting new found footage film:
Delivery tells the story of Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality show. The production spirals out-of-control after the cameras capture a series of unexplained events, leading Rachel to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child.
From director BRIAN NETTO and producer ADAM SCHINDLER, Delivery is told through the shows abandoned and un-aired reality footage, as well as testimonials from friends, family and crew members, providing a first hand account of the Massy’s tragic story.
Takashi Miike is making a US Premiere with this film Lessons of the Evil. Which, if you know Takashi, promises to be a fun bloody affair. The film follows a Japanese teacher who takes a hands on approach when it comes to school bullies.
Finally, Adam Wingard’s You’re Next will also be showing at the festival. And while this isn’t a world/US premiere, catching it at the festival will allow you to see it a full 2 months before the movie hits theaters.
