Fantasy pics’ Teuton tour

Ghoulish lineup kicks off in Berlin

Berlin– The 24th Fantasy Filmfest kicks off its nationwide tour in Berlin today, showcasing a ghoulish and violent lineup that opens with Franck Richard’s “La meute” (The Pack). The French production revolves around a young woman captured by the sinister owner of a roadside diner.

The film stars Emilie Dequenne, Yolande Moreau and singer-songwriter Benjamin Biolay. Richard will be on hand for the Berlin premiere.

The Filmfest will tour eight cities in Germany in 25 days, showcasing nearly 70 features.

One trend among the selections is “strong, self-confident female characters that are ready to do whatever it takes,” said Filmfest managing director Frederike Dellert. They appear in such films as “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” and “Bedevilled,” South Korean director Jang Cheol-soo’s bloody tale of revenge.

World premieres include Yann Gozlan’s “Caged”; Mark McQueen’s zombie actioner “Devil’s Playground” and Eric Valette’s monster car pic “Hybrid 3D.” Other screeners include “Chatroom,” by Japanese director Hideo Nakata; Gregg Araki’s “Kaboom”; and Gareth Edwards’ “Monsters.”
