The Fantasia Film Festival is under way in Montreal, with three weeks of genre programming from around the world. It’s the perfect venue for a sci-fi fantasy film like “Orion” to make its World Premiere, and today we have an exclusive clip from the picture.
Written and directed by Spirit Award nominee Asiel Norton, and starring David Arquette, Lily Cole, and Goran Kostic, the story is set in a dark age after civilization has collapsed, and follows a maiden who is being held by a cannibal shaman. However, an illiterate hunter stumbles across the shaman’s cottage, and the maiden promises to lead him to a city containing the world’s last survivors. And as you’ll see in this scene, the film seems to have a mystical energy running through it.
“Orion” screens at Fantasia on August 1st. Watch below.
