Fantastic Fest Review: The Black Phone

Fantastic Fest Interview: Junta Yamaguchi Goes Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes
There weren't audience awards at this year's Fantastic Fest, but if there were it would have been the smart bet that the adorable, hilarious, and sweet sci fi comedy Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes would have come out on top.
