sorry ive been gone so long - a lotta shit has been going on.
i will be writing more soon.
i saw the new evil dead 2 weeks ago and it was glorious.
v/h/s is a found footage anthology that has been getting a lot of buzz. i was lucky enough to see it earlier this year hosted by one of the segment’s directors, joe swanberg, at the maryland film festival. i definitely recommend checking it out because not only is the concept cool in a world of straight forward, increasingly bland found footage movies but it is actually good! i believe its out on VOD like on itunes and amazon.com but it is also getting a (limited?) theatrical release pretty soon so you have no excuse not to look into it.
the cabin in the woods - i just watched this movie for a second time last night. i definitely liked it better than the first time i watched it. but i have to say that because i had suuch high hopes for it (after reading positive reviews just about everywhere and hearing from non-horror movie lovers that it was amazing), that i was a tad bit disappointed. i liked it but i didn’t love it. i think seeing it in theaters would have created an entirely different (and more fun) experience for me. it definitely is very clever and its commentary on horror movies is very smart and funny. i do recommend this movie for horror fans and non-horror fans alike. its a fun movie that you should watch in a group of people so as to heighten the experience.
sheri moon zombie in a lords of salem still. i dont care what anyone says - i love her and i love that she is in all of rob zombie’s movies. im so excited to see this movie (or even just a trailer…rob zombie…please release a trailer already!?)
ANYWAYS, i was watching an interview with the 2 of them about halloween 2 or something and he made some statement about how he hates trailers because they can potentially show either too much from a movie, or portray a movie in misleading ways. and with lords of salem premiering at TIFF in early september, maybe he would go as far as to mot release a trailer? does anyone think he would, or even could do that? i wish he’d just release the promo thing he showed at one of his concerts a while back. there are poor youtube videos showing some of the footage but the stills i’ve seen (like the one above) look gorgeous. im just dying to get a feel for the look and pacing of the film. i read that zombie jokingly described it as “chinese water torture” - sounds good to me!
