This year’s Chattanooga Film Festival will be virtual for the second year in a row. Last year’s event was an event that showcased what can be done at a virtual film festival. It included strong panels, fun showcases, and interactive Q&A’s. Plus, there were some pretty good movies. This year looks to be just as promising. Here are some of the movies we are looking most forward to.
Alien on Stage
A South by Southwest favorite, the documentary follows an acting troupe that decides to try something new. What is their idea? To recreate the 1979 horror science fiction horror film Alien for the stage. But can a group of bus drives in Dorset turn a movie classic into a stage masterpiece?
The bond between a mother and her son is one that is explored often in movies. This is particularly prevalent in horror. A loving mom having to take care of monstrous offspring is the most common example. Poor Glenna is about a mother whose mutant son has developed a taste for human flesh. What’s a mother to do?
Sins of a Werewolf
Attendance in church seems to be an issue for churches around the world. Sins of a Werewolf is a short that explores how one parish began to see an increase in attendance. All it took was a priest to be bitten by a mysterious animal and begin turning into a bloodthirsty beast with every full moon.
The domineering mother figure is one of the most recognizable in the horror genre. Bloodshot Heart is about a man who is trying to escape the clutches of his mother while winning the heart of a woman who lives in his building. This soon becomes an obsession that turns into a psychosis. His concocts a violent plan to help him get everything he wants.
He’s Dead & So Am I
The movie is about a pair of ghosts that are stuck in purgatory. They are constantly bother by a demon who wants to convince the two to join Beelzebub.
