Chattanooga Film Festival 2022 Wrap-Up

I gave myself about a week to recover and gather my thoughts about CFF 2022. Over the six days I watched twenty-three films and sixty-one short films. That’s on top of the special events that I watched. I came away from this year’s fest feeling pretty good about everything. Before I talk about everything IContinue reading “Chattanooga Film Festival 2022 Wrap-Up”

The Creeping

I decided to end my Chattanooga Film Festival 2022 with The Creeping and it was an incredibly strong movie to finish it with. I had heard buzz about it from other people on the discord server for the festival. I had trouble finding the right time to watch it until the extended day, which gaveContinue reading “The Creeping”

Make Popular Movies

Make Popular Movies is a fucking weird movie, but its my kind of weird. I was worried that I was going to have to pause the movie fifteen minutes in just so I could catch my breath I was laughing so hard. I had a feeling it was going to be a weird movie justContinue reading “Make Popular Movies”

Giving Birth to a Butterfly

Giving Birth to a Butterfly is a fantastic movie. The name kind of implied that it could possibly be some kind of Cronenbergian body horror movie but instead it’s a Lynchian family drama, which I ended up digging a lot. You get a sense of who these characters are and what they want, you especiallyContinue reading “Giving Birth to a Butterfly”

Dangerous Visions Blocks 1 & 2 – CFF 2022

Both of these blocks were so amazing that I wanted to put them together in one recap. I loved so many shorts in both of these blocks. Part 1 was: Swole Ghost, Community Service, The Sweet Spot, Trash Life, 7 Minutes in Hell, Sucker, Livin’ After Midnight, Streamer Stalker, Off Limits, Smile, Box, The Woodsman,Continue reading “Dangerous Visions Blocks 1 & 2 – CFF 2022”

Night Shift

Night Shift was a hell of a movie to officially end the 2022 Chattanooga Film Festival with. The only thing I knew about it until I was waiting for it to get unlocked was that the poster looked great. The brief synopsis that was provided got me excited to see it and let me tellContinue reading “Night Shift”

Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters

Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters was originally going to be the first thing I watched at this years Chattanooga Film Festival, but it wasn’t available until Monday night. It was something that I knew I had to see because I’m a fan of not only the Hellboy comics but also the movies as well. I knowContinue reading “Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters”

Gateway

Gateway was a hell of a slow burn. I saw several comparisons to the movie Baskin, which I’ve not seen but will now search out and watch. It had a window of limited availability during the Sunday of Chattanooga Film Festival, and I made sure to catch it during the first couple of hours ofContinue reading “Gateway”

True Believer

True Believer was a delightful movie. I didn’t know what to expect going in but with it premiering on the Sunday of the Chattanooga Film Festival I knew that it would be the perfect time to see it. This is the kind of movie that we need right now. This is an incredibly positive andContinue reading “True Believer”

Thrilling Bloody Sword

Thrilling Bloody Sword is a movie that I didn’t know I needed in my life until I saw it. This masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema was previously only available through bootleg VHS tapes, but this was a 2K version created from the only known 35mm print known to exist. It was described as He-Man and theContinue reading “Thrilling Bloody Sword”
