Alien Abduction Horror ‘FRIED BARRY’ Competes at Fantasia Film Festival

“A wonderfully terrifying acid trip,” wrote Moviehole.

Los Angeles, CA – Aug. 10, 2020 – The multi-award winning insane, indie horror ‘FRIED BARRY’ will take you on the most bizarre joyride.

After launching international sales at the Cannes Film Festival, ROCK SALT RELEASING is proud to announce that highly celebrated South African writer / director, Ryan Krugers intense cult horror, FRIED BARRY, to compete in this year’s virtual Fantasia Film Festival.

Produced by James C. Williamson and based upon Ryan Kruger’s 2017 short film of the same name, FRIED BARRY is a bizarre tale told in a genre-bending onslaught of sex, drugs and violence.

FRIED BARRY is a musically aesthetic ride that is full of color (and blood) with all the right moving parts. Not to mention that Kruger approached the entire film like an experiment and directed it without a script,” wrote Crypt-Teaze in “These 5 Films Will Be the Breakout Stars of Fantasia 2020”.

Starring Gary Green in his debut role as ‘Barry’ and six-time award-winning actor, Sean Cameron Michael (Shooter, 24, Blood Drive), FRIED BARRY follows aliens that assume control of drug-addled Barry’s body and take it on a bizarre joyride through Cape Town. 

“Incredibly colorful and packed to the gills with all kinds of bizarre special effects, which will make it a must-see for lovers of the weird and wonderful,” wrote Moviehole.
