There’s another day of repeat viewings left at the Overlook Film Festival as I type this up, but I’m rolling out of NOLA today and leaving it all behind. So long to the murderous humidity, blasting air conditioners, high calorie foods, and a vast sea of alcohol. My last day of the fest was day three, yesterday, which I spent indoors as much as possible. I also ended up partaking in the best the fest had to offer in the form of two movies – one of which I had already seen. The best event turned out to not be a movie at all, though. Instead, author Grady Hendrix returned to New Orleans to give Overlook attendees an early glimpse of his upcoming Paperbacks from Hell II: Think of the Children. The end result was one of the most entertaining experiences of my life.

The power of Christ has compelled Endeavor Content to snap up the film rights to Grady Hendrix‘s novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism. Christopher Landon, the writer-director of the Happy Death Day films, will produce and possibly direct. The story is set in 1988, and focuses on two teenage best friends, one of whom might be possessed. More on the My Best Friend’s Exorcism movie below.

Ted Geoghegan’s Mohawk hits select theaters and VOD this Friday, March 2, and you should make a point of seeking it out. This deft blend of history and horror is not an easy sell to a general audience, but it’s definitely worth seeing. Here are four key reasons you’re going to want to watch this film.
Mohawk, the second film from We Are Still Here director Ted Geoghegan, has unleashed a brand new trailer, and it looks particularly promising. The film is set against the backdrop of the War of 1812, and follows a young Mohawk warrior turning the tables on the American soldiers pursuing her. Much bloodshed follows.
