Earlier this week, Fantasia welcomed two young brilliant directors, that is to say Simon Rumley and Chris Sivertson. They came to present their latest movie, and, of course, they gladly answered the fan's questions.
After much co-directing, one of them being All Cheerleaders Die in 2001 with Lucky Mckee, Chris Sivertson came to bring us his first as director. The adaptation of Jack Ketchum's novel was very much awaited by many Montreal fanatics. In addition to the good company of director Chris Sivertson and actress Erin Brown, you could spot Lucky Mckee (The Woods) and Scott Glosserman (Behind the Mask: the Rise of Leslie Vernon) amongst the crowd. Following the screening, questions were asked and autographs were signed.
Furthermore, Simon Rumley showed up for his two screenings of his fourth movie, The Living and the Dead. In fact, Rumley won over the audience with his movie. He was more than happy to answer to the questions they had, take pictures with fans and even sign a few autographs.
