Film Festivals Gruesome Reviews

[Review] Snowflake (Cinepocalypse, 2017): Xenia Assenza Leads a Terrific Ensemble Cast in this Delirious Bloody Dark Fantasy — by Joseph Perry

Chicago’s Music Box Theatre was home to the Cinepocalypse film festival from November 2 through November 9, 2017. One of the 60 films screening at this incredible film festival was  Snowflake  (Schneeflöckchen, 2017) from directors Adolfo J. Kolmerer and William James, and writers Arend Remmers. The film’s ensemble cast is terrific and features an outstanding performance from Xenia Assenza as a young woman out for revenge on the two men who killed her parents in a restaurant massacre. The film features a meta angle about characters who confront the screenwriter, absurdist and surreal situations, dark comedy, and plenty of violence and bloody mayhem. Check out Joseph’s full audio review below.

Snowflake  (Schneeflöckchen)  3.8 out of 5 stars (3.8 / 5)
