The GenreBlast Film Festival is entering its sixth year of genre film goodness. A one-of-a-kind film experience created for both filmmakers and film lovers to celebrate genre filmmaking in an approachable environment, it has been described by Movie Maker Magazine as a “summer camp for filmmakers.”

Over the next few days, I’ll be reviewing several movies from this fest, based in the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Winchester, Virginia. This year, there are 14 feature films and 87 short films from all over the world. Weekend passes are only $65 and you can get them right here.

Get Out of There (2022): The Barber Brothers also made another short I’ve seen recently, Specter of Weeping Hill, and Get Out of There has the same gorgeous attention to look and detail.

After narrowly making it alive out of a fall down a hillside, Officer Jim Soul (Nathaniel Barber) can’t get back on his feet. Yet he knows that he’s not alone in the woods and only has his radio and dispatcher Maggie (Breanne Solis) for help.

This seems like part of a much larger story but it’s hard to complain when it’s so well made. I’d love to see where else the brothers go, as I’ve loved the first two shorts that I’ve seen from them.
