I’ve just landed back from my third consecutive Cannes Film Festival, but my first time with a film currently in production which I am co-directing and co-producing with Haunted Hayles, They’re Outside.
I decided to catch an afternoon screening ‘All the Creatures Were Stirring’ in Cannes, knowing that Jinga Films always supply some of the best films at FrightFest. What better chance to narrow down any potential clashes at the August bank holiday festival?
From the writer of ‘Let the Right One In’ (John Ajvide Lindqvist), and director of horror festival favourite, ‘Shelley’ (Ali Abbassi), ‘Border’ is a Swedish-Danish comment on outsiders of society and the importance of being yourself.
At Cannes this year, as they are every other, Troma were in attendance, bringing monsters and promises of excessive bodily fluids to the streets and this year onto the screen in the form of this insane sequel to the corny Nuke em franchise.
