Pandemonium (Fantasia 2023) Review

Fangoria! Woo!

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

Directed by Quarxx

“We always think we have life ahead of us before it ends.” That is what Daniel (Arben Bajraktaraj) says to Nathan (Hugo Dillion) as they come to terms with the fact that they are both dead after a traffic accident and try to assess who is going to heaven and who is headed to hell through the gates that have appeared before them. Fear not, reader, this is horror and they are heading for hell.

As Nathan enters the afterlife he is met by myriad souls and the film follows two of them, a killer child and a mother faced with every parent’s nightmare, doomed to eternal suffering as well as the next steps for Nathan (hint, he’s confronted by a demon and it doesn’t end well…for one of them.)

Pandemonium makes you laugh, cry and question your existence all at once- it is a truly rare film! It is creative, visually stunning, funny (yes, really) and thought-provoking; I promise it is like nothing else you’ll encounter…at least until you reach the afterlife.

Pandemonium just screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival. Check out the trailer and be on the lookout for this singular film.
