Fantastic Film 1 - Nature Nurture Murder

A fistful of this year’s best films of the fantastic – horror, science fiction, action, and comedy – are fairytales of the dark and twisted kind about dire consequences. Stumble unto Sámi curses, werewolves, milk cows and other things that can hide in the forest. It is about how nature nurtures and it is not always nice – but does not the same go for families? And of course the cautionary tale about the good (actually very, very bad) idea to sync calendars, especially if you are serial killers stalking the same summer camp.
