It’s no secret that I am a BIG fan of the horror. The gorier, the better. Funny, scary, gruesome, or just downright strange — I. Love. Splatter. Lucky for me, someone came up with the brilliant idea of gathering Indie films across a few genres that don’t usually get much love in bigger festivals (animation, fantasy, horror, sci-fi), and put them together in a neat package for The First Annual Maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival (MIFFF), and even luckier, it’s coming to SIFF Cinema this weekend!
That’s right, it’s MIFFF at SIFF. Blood-soaked, splatterific, scary-as-hell features and shorts that showcase everything from a giant pig (Pig Hunt, reportedly one of the goriest films ever) to Zombies cruising around in a ’79 Camaro (The Revenant) to a documentary about the history of Norwegian Black Metal (Until the Light Takes Us).
Sounds awesome, RIGHT?
MIFF kicks off Friday night, 9/18 at 8:30pm with The Revenant, runs through Saturday, 9/19 and ends Sunday night, 9/20 with Strigoi at 8:30pm. Click here to see the full schedule. $65 gets you a full series pass, or you can pay $10 to see each film/shorts package individually.
