Even worse was Mitch hyping it up to be "scary as hell" and that everybody would be "pissing their pants". I mean, I get why you use hyperbole on the website or in the program - you're trying to sell tickets. But don't oversell a movie I've already bought a ticket just creates unrealistic expectations and makes it all the more disappointing when your "scary as hell" movie turns out to be a little creepy and nothing more.

Last year, two of my friends saw 26 films each; this year they struggled to find 10 to get the discounted price.
I have to agree, so far at least...there just wasn't a lot that looked exciting to me once I got past the Nikkatsu movies and the two Miike films. There's still a chance to be pleasantly surprised though.

Of course, it's silly to say "Fantasia has become utter crap" when it could just be a down year for genre films. Last year was one of the best editions I've ever been to.
