October Coast has provided a list of movies they’ll be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this month, two of which we have mentioned earlier. Three will premiere in all:

CANARIES: a sci fi horror comedy from Welsh writer/director Peter Stray, it’s about a group of friends at a New Year’s Eve bash in the Welsh Valley who must fight against an invasion force of time travelling aliens. It stars Robert Pugh (Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who, Master & Commander) and Hannah Daniel (Netflix’s Hinterland). (Devilworks)
THE RESTAURANT: a supernatural horror comedy set in New York, executive produced by Kris Maxx and written and directed by Eric Ford-Holevinski. An average man named Andy manages an Italian eatery, where in exchange for business he feeds undesirables to a demon in the basement. Everything was going smoothly…until the busboy found out.

These three films will make their big-screen debut at Cannes, and will appear on DVD and VOD platforms later this year.
