Rainey Qualley, Vincent Kartheiser and Breeda Wool in ULTRASOUND screening at Fantasia FF 2021 ( @FantasiaFest )

Fantasia International Film Festival, the iconic Canadian genre film festival, has announced its first wave of programming for the upcoming 25th edition. Once again the festival will be a virtual event, and will run from August 5-25th of this year and one of those films is Ultrasound, starring  Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men), Chelsea Lopez (Novitiate), Breeda Wool (UnREAL), Tunde Adebimpe (Marriage Story, Spider-Man: Homecoming), Rainey Qualley (Love in the Time of Corona), and Bob Stephenson (Lady Bird). 

Driving home late at night during a heavy rainstorm, Glen experiences car trouble. Near where his car gets stuck, he spots a house, knocks on the door and is greeted by an oddly friendly middle-aged man, Arthur, and his younger wife, Cyndi. The strange couple pours him a drink, and then more drinks, followed by an unexpected offer that Glen can’t refuse. Elsewhere, a young woman, Katie, is feeling emotionally weighed down by a secret romantic arrangement that feels like a textbook case of gaslighting. And at the same time, in a nondescript research facility, medical professional Shannon begins questioning her role in a bizarre experiment, fearing that she’s doing more harm than good.
