  • PUFF 2016: “BAD BLOOD: THE MOVIE” (Film Review)

    ,,

Of course, I am talking about this past weekend’s Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (PUFF), which this writer attended during their eclectic Saturday, the day they screened their International Oddities collection of shorts. This diverse selection of horror, sci-fi, and bizarre shorts from around the world mirrored the tenor of the festival overall. While the mission statement for the festival said it was to ‘hang out and watch great movies with cool people,’ it didn’t take long to realize something else was going on there.
