I’ve been to plenty of festivals and seen my share of short horror films but few have been as, er, eye-opening as Richard Gale’s “Criticized”. First seen at last year’s Screamfest LA, this lil’ slice of dementia has gone on to hit almost every genre festival under the sun and already garnered over ten awards and nominations.

Gale just dropped us a few updates on the latest festival run along with a new trailer which you can watch in our Broadband Section. You can catch “Criticized” this month and next at one of the following fests:
