• Fantasia2017-EN Fantasia2017 – Other films that deserve a mention… - With a week between me and the official end of the Fantasia International Film Festival it’s time to look back on the films that didn’t get a full review from me but that I enjoyed nonetheless… House of the Disappeared (2017) – Directed by Lim Dae-Wong, starring Kim Yunjin (Sun! from Lost!).
