3 Updates for Fantastic Fest Attendees!
2006 Fantastic Fest's Severance opens today at the Alamo South Lamar
Festival favorite Severance opens at Alamo South Lamar today. In my opinion, Magnolia didn't properly sell this gem of a film. The UK Trailer rocks, but the US trailer doesn't give you any sense of what the movie is about, let alone indicate that it's going to be funny. Really funny (just think bear trap and airplane). It's a disservice to what I thought was one of the funniest, most crisply written films of last year's festival. Please tell your friends to come and check this baby out. In the thick of this blockbuster summer, Severance isn't going to be around very long. If you missed it last year, I've included a link to the audience feedback comments from last year's fest. almost unanimously glowing with praise.
