Observance to premier at the Fantasia International Film Festival Montreal

Aussie shocker to kick off in Canada as local fans as usual sit around fiddling their fingers while waiting on a screening of some sort.

You know it keeps having to be said but it sucks to live Downunder if you are a member of the local horror community. Not only do we have to import a lot of movies, including local ones, but we generally are the last ones to see our own movies while up North they are wallowing in them. Case in point Observance the new horror flick from Joseph Sims-Dennett, which the Canucks are getting to watch way before the faithful in this part of the world. And folk wonder why local movies don't find a fan base!

Anyways, and now that I've had a bitch, Observance plot reads "In the grip of grief following the death of his young son, his marriage on the rocks and nearing bankruptcy, Parker reluctantly returns to work as a private investigator. Embarking on an unusual assignment to observe a woman from an abandoned apartment, Parker witnesses bizarre happenings surrounding her, unaware that the derelict building that he surveys her from has birthed a dark presence which slowly threatens to consume him" -

So double meaning to the term "observance" then. Catch the trailer below, be warned it is disturbing.
