Snakehead, The Souvenir Part II, Army of Thieves and Mass

Join us every week as Rotten Tomatoes reports what independent features are streaming. From promising releases of new voices to the experimental efforts of renowned filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for year-end accolades – we’ll explain it all here every week.

This week for our Indie Fresh List, we have a gripping crime thriller and a couple of sequels; the first is a semi-autobiographical account by writer-director Johanna Hogg, and the second is a sequel to Zach Snyder’s prequel Army of the dead. In our Spotlight section, we have a drama examining the human cost and aftermath of a school shooting, which we discussed with one of the stars, Emmy Award-winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale).
