MIDWEST WEIRDFEST: Lunamancer (2021)

Returning to his hometown in Upstate New York — yes, I know, nothing good happens when we go back home — Dr. Issac Blake (Jake Pirkkanen) has the psychic notion that his sister Sue (Nicki Clyne, Cally from Battlestar Galactica). So he grabs a crowbar, steals a car and prepares to battle with the Lunamancer (Cliff Tulis).

Is it weird to say that the sound design is one of the stars of this movie? Because it totally is. This film sounds amazing and looks beyond what its budget should. There aren’t many budget superhero movies, but this one does it right.

Director Noah Mucci (who co-wrote this with Matt Patterson, who wrote This Film Is Not Yet Rated and played the devil in Warlock: The Armageddon), who was the cinematographer for The Last Blockbuster, does a great job with a much, much smaller balance sheet than a Marvel or DC movie. Definitely worth keeping an eye on what he does next.

Lunamancer plays MidWest WeirdFest on Sunday, March 6 at 8:30 PM CST. You can get tickets and more information on the MidWest Weird Fest website. You can learn more about Lunamancer on the official site.
