Fantasia 2014 exclusive: Dys-turbing photos from world premiere “DYS-”
One of the movies just revealed this morning as part of the lineup of Montreal’s Fantasia festival (see full schedule here) is DYS-, the feature debut of writer/director Maude Michaud, who has won international praise for her short films. We’ve got a couple of exclusive pics, plus the poster and trailer to show you.
Described by Michaud as “a psychological horror film which is a direct response to the current oversaturation of the genre by zombies,” DYS- stars Shannon Lark (once a FANGORIA Spooksmodel), Alex Goldrich and Dega Lazare, with a cameo by fright fave Lynn Lowry. The synopsis: “A strange disease is plaguing the city. Hoping to escape contamination, Eva and Sam, an estranged married couple, are forced to barricade themselves in their apartment, despite the palpable tension between them. Now forced into isolation in their small living space, they struggle with their own frailty in a world that can only offer the worst horrors imaginable.”
DYS- has its world premiere at Fantasia Friday, August 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Salle J.A. de Sève (1400 boul. de Maisonneuve O.). Tickets will be available very soon at Fantasia’s official website; go here to learn more about Michaud’s previous work, and visit the DYS- official site and Facebook page.
