Horror Talk: 10.14.2008

What’s up all!!!
Well things have been kick ass on my side of the world. Got to talk to the beautiful Raine Brown, the hottie with the killer body Tracy Coogan, and the always wonderful Zack Parker! So, umm can’t complain. I want to touch on something that I have been asked a few times over the last week.

I am a HUGE Indy supporter! Don’t get me wrong, I love the bigger films that keep us up and trembling at night, but there is magic when it comes from someone who really wants to entertain you and not just make the big bucks.And that includes all areas of the Indy world. From films, to music, to clothes. I have found some awesome clothes from independent designers that will be on my tiny little body way before an Armani will.It’s all about the fans and that’s what these people target! Not just the rich and famous but the po’ broke ho’s of the world, like me, too!

haha SUPPORT OUR INDY BRETHEREN!

Plus, my kids have their good moments…they have to sleep don’t they!

Steven C Miller in final talks to direct the new ‘Motel Hell':
I am really excited to see this film because I am a fan of the original. That said…What the crap is up with all the remakes?! When the hell did Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs become CEO of the horror genre?! Not hating Puffy, but this is getting a little redundant. I’m gonna remake a movie! Watch out, coming to a theatre near you, directed by critically acclaimed smart ass Dai, Saw 4, because it made some money and she is broke so go see it because it’s Saw 4 and she is a capitalist! (I apologize in advance if anyone was offended. But if you were, loosen up the panties! *wink*)

What I’m watching:
by special guest:
Christian Sellers of GoreZone Magazine

I’ve never been a fan of gothic horror, yet somehow I’ve managed to see several this week.

Possibly the biggest letdown was Kill, Baby…Kill!, an Italian ‘masterpiece’ from the 1960’s by Maria Bava, truly one of the greatest filmmakers that Europe has produced. Kill, Baby…Kill has constantly been praised for its style and atmosphere, yet I found this a very slow and drawn out affair, with very few shocks or memorable moments. I’ve never been the world’s biggest fan of Hammer, yet seeing the 1958 version of Dracula on the big screen was an experience that prompted me to seek out more. So the first out of the ‘Hammer Collection’ boxset was, naturally, Dracula Prince of Darkness. Despite treading familiar territory, this was an entertaining movie with a typically over-the-top performance from Christopher Lee.

Sadly, Peter Cushing did not reprise his role as Van Hesling, and Lee had barely any screen time, but there was something in its campy charm that I found delightful.

I decided to revisit the original, the 1980 slasher Terror Train (though technically the filmmakers now insist that this is no longer a remake). I have always been a huge an of this subgenre, despite many of them being abysmal. While Terror Train has never made its way into my favorites, there’s plenty here to recommend if you’re a fan of this type of film. First of all, the fancy dress subplot allows for various gimmicks, the most effective being the image of the killer stalking his victims in a Groucho Marx mask – bizarre yet creepy. There’s not much blood on display here, and fans of T&A will be disappointed by the lack of flesh, but the key element here is tension. Terror Train was designed more as a murder mystery, and in many ways it succeeds. Despite being occasionally dated in places, this is a must-see for slasher fans. To make up sitting through several dire efforts, I went with a safe bet… The Bird With the Crystal Plumage. Dario Argento has always split audiences and critics alike, with the amateur acting and bad dubbing diminishing the overall effect of many of his films. Yet his 1970 debut stands as one of his best efforts.
