J.D. Dillard’s Sweetheart is fierce aquatic horror without any frills. Think Cast Away, but instead of a volleyball companion named “Wilson,” it’s a man-eating sea monster who hunts by moonlight.

Many thanks to Fantastic Fest’s programmers for granting Sweetheart’s alluring intensity one last theatrical screening before Blumhouse releases Dillard’s latest straight to VOD in late October.

As we step further into 2018, it’s now dawning on me that we’re only a couple years away from looking back on the last ten years of filmmaking and assessing major industry trends that have happened over the past decade.
