The Fantasia International Film Festival marks the World Premiere of the first feature film from the creative duo of John Swab and Corey Asraf. A slightly dreamlike recounting of the day Drew Glass (Niko Nicotera) returns to his hometown to seek vengeance on his drug dealing father. Along the way reconnecting with the deteriorating figures of his past, some redeemable and others damned to condemnation. Oh, and a hitman named Pope (Marilyn Manson) wants to kill him.

I was lucky enough to sit down the with the stars of the film Niko Nicotera, Sam Quartin and Gore Abrams. They talk about finding their characters, what it was like working with John and Corey and also Sam and Gore’s next project “Living the Gimmick: The Great American Unwashed” which is about, get this, wrestling. Sorry Walter.
