Join us this week as we take a look at ten horror films screened at the 16th Annual Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, North Carolina. The festival, which plays at the Carolina Theater, is one of the best, more intimate, horror festivals on the circuit bringing many unseen and low budget, independent genre films to the big screen. This year’s group contains found footage, home invasion, werewolves, Sasquatch creatures, Spanish demon heavy metal puppets of death and a few surprises.
Doc Rotten is joined by avid horror fan and NC Film Maker, Paul Cardillo (Fix It In Post). Together they take a look at each of the ten films from the Nevermore Film Festival. Between the two of them, they were able to catch each major entry in the festival. While Doc favors Dig Two Graves and Pieces of Talent, Paul provides a terrific argument that Savageland and Blood Punch may be the best in a long time. The selection provides a variety of genre favorites, gore, effects and solid character development. Oh, yeah, and puppets made out of trash bags…
