Montreal! One-legged ass-kicker Eddie McGee presents THE HUMAN RACE at Regarding Disability Festival


Fantasia fans met the rag-tag team behind apocalyptic hunting-humans shocker THE HUMAN RACE at its World Premiere in Montreal this past summer, and now we have a rather interesting crossover as the film returns to Montreal for screenings as part of the inaugural Regarding Disabilities Film Festival (coincidentally the same month that local microcinema The Noah programmed its own disabilities cult film retrospective!). THE HUMAN RACE opens the festival March 22, and screens again on March 23 + 24, with actor Eddie McGee and producer Tripp Hope in person at all the screenings!

The latest from director Paul Hough (director of amazing trash-wrestling doc THE BACKYARD, and son of horror icon John Hough), THE HUMAN RACE’s empowering of the disabled may be the only politically correct thing about it, as body parts fly, heads explode, and our one-legged protagonist proves himself an irrepressible womanizer in between doling out roundhouse kicks, making it one of the most uproarious of those rare films featuring physically challenged leads!
