[Review] Future (GenreBlast, 2017) – by Paul Cardullo

While GenreBlast is not strictly a horror film festival, it certainly features its share of horror fare along with many sci-fi epics, zany action films, and off the wall comedies. Paul Cardullo steps up to review one of the sci-fi entries at the 2017 GenreBlast Film Festival – and a favorite of the weekend – Future (2017). Directed by  Rob Cousineau and Chris Rosik, Future features Joshua P. Cousineau and Phreddy Wischusen in the lead roles as Doug, a troubled young man down on his decisions in life, and the Time Traveler, who is prepared to offer Doug a second chance at a key moment in his life. But this offer comes with a price. Paul dives into how the film is driven by the characters instead of the sci-fi and how the two leads make the film, especially Phreddy Wischusen who anchors the film’s heart and tone. Read his review below.

Paul Cardullo

Paul Cardullo is a North Carolina indy filmmaker and horror fan. His tastes range from art-house horror to low-budget schlock to indie gems to Slovenia killer hillbilly flicks. When not watching films, he helps make them. From actor to boom operator to doughnut wrangler, he makes himself useful wherever he can. Paul believes it is sometimes necessary to suffer for one’s art. He has endured being covered in [censored], having [censored] thrown at him, and spending over a year with muttonchops and a 70’s-style mustache. When not being abused for the sake of his craft, Paul works on computers and watches as many obscure (and not so obscure) movies as he can fit in.
