The features announced this week are from all around the globe: animated films Aachi and Ssipak from Korea and Princess from Denmark; the Canadian thriller The Entrance; a spooky-looking New Zealand horror film called The Ferryman that stars John Rhys-Davies; a documentary about French artist Jean Giraud, Moebius Redux: A Life in Pictures; the Russian drama The Sword Bearer; and the surreal Japanese film Wicked Flowers, which Scott Weinberg reviewed at the Philadelphia Film Festival. American films include New Line's Flight of the Living Dead (no snakes, just zombies) and Trick 'r Treat, the directorial debut from screenwriter Michael Dougherty (X-Men 2, Superman Returns). I've listed the short films selected for Fantastic Fest after the jump.
[Thanks to Blake at Cinema Strikes Back for the tip -- check out his entry for mini-reviews of the films that he's seen already as well as some arresting stills.]
