Pontypool director Bruce McDonald makes his return with Dreamland, which will have its North American premiere at the forthcoming Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal this weekend.

Bloody Disgusting, thanks to the fests and Fabien M., has several images from the kitchen sink genre film starring Juliette Lewis, Henry Rollins, and Stephen McHattie!

The film takes place on the night of the strangest wedding in cinema history where a grotesque gang boss hires a stone-cold killer to bring him the finger of a fading, drug-addicted jazz legend.

Here’s what Fantasia writes: “On the orders of his boss, the low-level gangster Hercules (Rollins), hit man Johnny (McHattie) must cut off the pinkie finger of celebrated jazz trumpeter The Maestro (McHattie, again) just before an important, high-profile gig. Seems simple enough, but the gig is a wedding at the fortified palace of crime queen The Countess (Lewis) and Johnny isn’t quite feeling it. Hercules is moving up from standard gangster stuff to human trafficking and the reason for the pinky request is more of a slight than anything else. Like all movie hit men, Johnny is thinking of getting out of the game and this job has convinced him it’s time to retire. Throw in The Countess’ vampire brother (Tómas Lemarquis), his child bride and the wedding from hell, you’ll think you’ve imagined it all, but no, it’s just a visit to Dreamland.”
