Every year at SXSW Fantastic Fest programs a series of midnight films, called SXFantastic. This year is a damn strong line-up - we’ll be bringing you exclusive interviews with the filmmakers behind all the films starting next week - but my favorite may be The FP, directed by Brandon and Jason Trost (with whom I just got off the phone). The town of Frazier Park is controlled by warring gangs, and their battle weapon of choice is games of Beat Beat Revelation, a dancing video game they play to the death.
Twitch has some exclusive pictures from the film, one of which is above. I really loved this movie and can’t wait for more people to get a look at the sustained insanity that The FP somehow manages to capture. I’m dying to write my gushing review!
