"Rising Egyptian actor Ahmed Malek, who was a Screen International Arab Star of Tomorrow in 2017, has signed for the lead role in Canadian director Patricia Chica’s coming-of-age drama Montreal Girls. Chica developed the feature with long-time collaborator Kamal John Iskander as well as Bahija Essoussi and Samuel Gagnon at Montreal-based Objectif 9."
"'Charlie's Farm' director to grow some 'Jowls.' Jowls is in the early stages of pre-production with the script being written by Kamal John Iskander who previously penned Patricia Chica’s 'A Tricky Treat.'"
"...filmmaker Patricia Chica to present her darkly comic short,'Ripe and Bloody' (A Tricky Treat) to be included in this anthology of films from some of the most innovative, unique, and irreverent female directors from across the globe."
"8/10 stars. Indeed, writer Kamal John Iskander understands the often fine line between comedy and horror and how to blur and blend the two...A Tricky Treat subverts suburbia better in three minutes than any hackneyed Tim Burton feature."
"(A Tricky Treat) is gorey, disturbing, and the payoff is perfect!"
"(A Tricky Treat) does more in the short time given it than some movies do in 90 minutes. It’s visceral, bloody, creepy and has a certain delicious ending that just freaked me out!"
"You’re gonna love the TWILIGHT ZONE-esque ending!!"
