[Review] Guardians (GenreBlast, 2017) – by Doc Rotten

On September 7-10, 2017, Paul Cardullo and I attended the terrific GenreBlast Film Festival in Winchester, Virginia. Run by Nathan Ludwig and his GenreCrew (Raygan Ketterer, Chad Farmer, and Charles Devin Hill), the festival is quickly becoming a fan favorite. This year, the festival opened with a UK  comedy called Guardians (2017) that mixes in a hint of the supernatural, home-invasion, and the totally bizarre to great effect and delightful entertainment. Director Mark A.C. Brown and his cast, including Matt Prendergast, David Whitney, and Hattie Hayridge, deliver a film that became my personal favorite of the weekend. Check out my review below.

Guardians (2017) 4.3 out of 5 stars (4.3 / 5)
