Storyline

For 11 years, the FantAsia Film Festival in Montreal has been the premiere showcase in North America of fantasy, horror and action films from around the world. Every July, sold out crowds of 900 line up around the block before each screening; the festival itself lasts approximately 3 weeks. Shot during the 2 year of the festival in 1997, In the Belly of the Beast chronicles the intense struggles that five filmmakers in attendance went through to complete their films. Crew rebellions, corporate embezzlers and bankrupt studios are just a few of the memories conjured up during candid interviews, while the camera captures the latest challenge: the public acceptance - or rejection - of their films.

Is the Beast still hungry?
2 September 2005 | by (The IMDb Horror Board!) – See all my reviews

Included as an extra on The Manson Family DVD set, this was a nearly feature length documentary of the 1997 FantAsia Film Festival in Montreal. Highlights include such underground films as A Gun for Jennifer, Dust Devil, Aftermath, an early mix of Manson Family scenes (in an attempt to receive more funding!), and Subconscious Cruelty. Directors, actors, fans, and critics all chime in with their thoughts on these pictures and other genre topics. The director of Subconscious Cruelty was especially annoying; his mouth never shut. And then when he received some criticism for his picture, he nearly broke down. I'm not sure what he was hoping for; a film like SC never was going to find a big audience or receive much praise.
