Greetings friends! This was a slower week on Awesome Friday, but your support helped bring three pieces this week.
First, I had the pleasure of speaking with Canadian horror director Amelia Moses about her new film Bloodthirsty, which screened as a part of Blood in the Snow Film Festival. This was the second time I’ve spoken to Amelia, and she was a blast to speak to both times.

Second, last years festival darling Saint Frances is headed to a VOD release in Canada this week and I got to take an early look.
Review: ‘Saint Frances’ is an honest look at adulthood
And third, a recap and review of the second episode of the second season of The Mandalorian on Disney+. If you missed Baby Yoda last week, I have god news for you this week.

Blood in the Snow Festival Coverage
This week has been a big one here at Awesome Friday HQ as my biggest project since the blog relaunch was posted this week. I watched all 31 Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror episodes and ranked all 93 segments from my least to most favourite. It was no small feat and game together over the course of a few weeks leading up to the broadcast of this years edition, which as it turned out, was pretty good!
This week also saw the start of my coverage of the 2020 Blood in the Snow festival, which features Canadian horror films broadcast this year via SuperChannel.
Also this week, a review of the new Netflix limited series The Queen’s Gambit, as well as a new short film from Disney, and the new Sofia Coppola film On the Rocks from AppleTV+.
I want to take this to say thank you to each one of you. I greatly appreciate the support, and I’m working hard to bring you interesting stuff. As always, if you are not already a supporter, please consider becoming one. Every dollar helps me keep doing this thing I love. Thanks!
