with him rich programming, avalanche of prominent guests, and conceptual spirit of possibility, this Sitges will greatly contribute to an unrivaled fantasy fall. While the industry is going through a tough time, genre cinema seems more or less unaware of turbulence: two horror movies have hit number one in the United States in the last three weeks, ‘The Barbarian’ and ‘The Smile’ are young writers with original ideas.

The big crowds had not yet arrived in Sitges on Thursday morning, but the atmosphere was much more lively than the early bars of the 2020 festival yet no one knew how to greet or if it was basically a good idea to be there.and even more so than the exciting start of 2021.

“Is he real?”
Manager Andrew Weeks, better known as the producer, proposes and manages to develop the craziest plot with all possible psychological realism. Giving up uncertainty without that meaning. This historian wrote three simple words in capital letters during the show: “WHAT’S TRUTH?”. Semans never answers this question that will help keep ‘Resurrection’ forever enigmatic and the controversy surrounding it will never be completely over.
It was just a (almost) solid start to a day at the Meliá Sitges Auditorium, which will also include a preview of the first two episodes of the series. ‘Midnight Club’A new series for Netflix by the great Mike Flanagan (‘Curse of the Hill’) or an opening premiere late in the afternoon with Jaume Balagueró’s ‘Venus’ as the main attraction.
