And so, another edition of the Sundance Film Festival has come to an end, leaving us with a host of films to look forward to as the year continues. Although the film festival had to go digital at the last minute (it was planned as a fusion festival), overall the selection of films was excellent and I found a whole bunch of people should make people talk. That said, a landing at Sundance doesn’t always mean a launch date is imminent. For example, an entertaining werewolf movie that I saw there last year is called Eight for silver has been replaced Cursed ones (terrible title) and still unreleased, no hype On number threesold to MGM/Orion last year.
In the end, almost all of the movies I’ve seen and loved have distribution deals, but here are five, in particular, you should look out for:
Horror was presented to a considerable extent at the Sundance Film Festival, but the last genre that excites me the most is Say no to evil. The movie lures you in with a false sense of security as it features some mild satire and nasty laughs, but soon enough its relative real-world scenarios take a turn for the worse. multiple. It’s an upsetting movie that serves as a cautionary tale about putting your trust in the wrong people, and it’s also an intense exercise in anxiety-inducing fear. This movie will be released through Shudder later this year – Gaius Bolling
Another horror outing at Sundance, with Sebastian Stan reinventing himself as a potential horror icon in this love-and-cannibal saga, opposite the talented Daisy Edgar-Jones. You won’t have to wait long to see this, with it set for a Hulu release on March 4while it hits Disney Star everywhere else in late spring.
Aubrey Plaza has never been better than her in this LA-set novel that, in my opinion, completely reinvents her onscreen character as a young woman in debt and to live in crime. This one is sold to Roadside Tourist Attractions/Vertical Recreation.
Another early ride of a Sundance movie, with Rebecca Hall playing a woman shocked when the abusive partner (Tim Roth) she left twenty years ago, reappears. Now, I know that sounds pretty standard, but do you think that description would have references to David Cronenberg and body horror in it? Yes. IFC Midnight and Shudder has this.
Probably the only film I watched during the festival that I consider a masterpiece, by Kogonada After Yang is a bittersweet sci-fi story about what it means to fall in love and be human… or a robot. Colin Farrell the stars. The A24 is launching this product in March, and it’s a great piece of work.
