In a Valley of Violence (Fantasia Review)

PLOT: A man with nothing to lose rides into a small town where he quickly gets on the wrong side of the marshal and his violent son.

Rupture (Fantasia Review)

PLOT: A single mother is kidnapped one day by a mysterious organization that proceeds to interrogate her without explanation. They want her for something, but what? REVIEW: RUPTURE is a weird film.
