Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival




The mosquito is a tiny insect that provokes a great deal of aggression with people. Certainly when, after a warm, sleepless summer night, you behold your formerly pearly white wall covered with bloodstains. That such a nasty bug carries around your blood, is horror in itself. Since the festival includes more than just horror, I did not want the mosquito to be an ordinary one. On further consideration, it appears to have a touch of humanity and a daily life. He also shops for groceries and that ended in a fatal accident.
