BADASS Film Festival: Blackout
1:30pm - Sunday, Oct 15, 2023
The Ninth Annual International Vancouver Badass Film Festival w/ Genre Film & Script Awards and Live Sideshow Spectacular!
Horror directing (and lately acting) legend Larry Fessenden returns with his brand new werewolf film Blackout, a follow-up of sorts to his 2022 Frankenstein film Depraved; kind of a rural upstate alcohol & lycanthropy counterpoint to his cool gritty urban New York vampire and drugs film The Addiction (1995). Starring Alex Hurt (son of the late William Hurt -who appears, in a way, as the main character's father), the film is about a fine arts painter who is convinced that he is a werewolf wreaking havoc on a small American town under the full moon.
Sunday, October 15
Doors 1:00 pm | Movie 1:30 pm *Start time subject to change. Please arrive on time.
Blackout (2023, dir Larry Fessenden, BC premiere) Art, alcohol, a love story, mob and gory monster violence collide in Blackout, whose stinger hints at the connections between Fessenden’s modern monster series. (USA, 143m, Western North American Premiere).
