Fantasia 2015: Wrap-Up

Well, that was a busy three weeks!

It would be safe to say that my very first  year covering the Fantasia International Film Festival was a successful one. In addition to six re-posted reviews of films I saw at previous festivals, I ended up watching and reviewing a whopping 41 films over the course of the festival. I could have chose to limit my coverage to the twenty or so screenings I attended while in Montreal, but I ended up feeling the compulsive need to continue watching and reviewing Fantasia films (via screeners) after I returned to Toronto. I am already making plans to return to Montreal for next year’s 20th edition of Fantasia.

Now, without further ado, here is my full Fantasia wrap-up.
