Riders of Justice se lleva el Méliès de Plata en el BIFFF
Riders of Justice, de Anders Thomas Jensen

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

It was Bill Calahan’s cleverly self-referential Canadian movie Vicious Fun which won over the jury and the public at this 39th edition of the BIFFF (Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival), bagging itself both the Golden Raven and the Audience Award. The film follows in the footsteps of Joel, a film critic for a horror magazine who finds himself unintentionally involved in a support group for serial killers. Short of other options, Joel tries his best to blend in to avoid becoming their next victim.

) who examines the tragic fate of a mother who escaped a Satanic sect when she was a child yet sees her past catch up with her when several group members infect her son with an illness whose cure is far more terrifying than she could ever possibly imagine. The film is produced by Park Films in Europe (Ireland) alongside Elastic Films and Quickfire Films (both UK-based).

, which also earned him trophies at previous instalments of the BIFFF (notably a Golden Raven for the former in 2006). This very dark comedy speaks of the bitter revenge wreaked by a bereaved father and husband played by Mads Mikkelsen, and is produced by Zentropa Entertainment (Denmark) and Film i Väst (Sweden). A Special Mention was also bestowed upon the English movie Host [+lee también:
