TwoOhSix Picks for SIFF 2017 Part 4 - Midnight Movies

25 Films for 25 Days of SIFF!

Over the course of nearly four weeks, the Seattle International Film Festival will feature 400 films from around the world and, since it would be physically impossible to watch them all, I am giving you a starting point with this list of the films that I am most looking forward to watching. The entire roster of films comes from 80 different countries and features 36 world premieres and 20 US premieres screening at venues all around the greater Seattle area.

To help make things easier, I have created four categories and each category gets its very own post.


I'm not even sure what this film is, but it looks pretty insane so yeah. Why not?! "Blasting out of Wakaliwood, the micro-budget studio founded by Ugandan action-movie lover Nabwana I.G.G., this inventive action comedy and winner of the Audience Award at Fantastic Fest delivers ass-kicking commando vengeance unlike anything you have seen before."

This may be the one film I am looking forward to the most and, once you watch the trailer, you will either understand, or you will think I am off my rocker. Either way, this is going to be a blood splattering great time in the tradition of other films like Machine Girl, Tokyo Gore Police, and Robogeisha!
Once again, I have no ides what's going on here, but the bio promises unprecedented mayhem and who doesn't like that?! "In 1990, exploitation auteur James Bryan (Don't Go in the Woods) pulled out his video camera and made an utterly insane decapitation-fueled horror movie about a jungle hotel haunted by kill-crazy ghosts in loincloths. It remained unfinished until the team at Bleeding Skull found it 26 years later."

Because who doesn't like a little Christmas horror in June?! "Home Alone meets Funny Games in a true nightmare before Christmas, as a disturbed home invader menaces a quick-witted babysitter and her cunning 12-year-old charge who is harboring a rabid age-inappropriate crush."
