Producer: “Ok, guys, I’ve had the greatest idea for our new film. So I was watching Fight Club, right, and then I saw Big Fat Gypsy Weddings with the missus, and then I saw Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus. And what did I come up with? Only City boys versus gypos in a countryside war. GET IN.”
As a huge proportion of horror films become ever more identikit, gory and bland, it’s very easy to write off the whole genre as worthless. But we’re standing up and saying NO MORE! There’s gold in them thar pans of muddy shite, and we’re going to find it.
Benito Robinsoni rose to film short fame with grindhouse movie trailer Slash Hive. We caught him in between feature films (giallo slasher and supernatural cop movie) to froth over Neon Killer, a hilarious nod to the luridly graphic excess of 1970s Poliziotteschi movies. Enjoy every daft and glorious minute!
Social satire clashes with extreme violence in this vicious slasher film from Hong Kong. A strong sense of black humour runs throughout, but the fact that 3 people out of an audience of 10 left before halfway through the screening tells you all you need to know about the killings on offer in this asian horror.
If you’re looking for Halloween film events, what better way to celebrate than with a super-select screening of An American Werewolf in London at London Zoo on Oct 31st! We have a pair of money-can’t-buy tickets to give away! Competition ends thurs 28 October 2010.
Halloween is a time for scary movies with a high sugar and fat content. Cast aside nutritious award-winning scares and shun that well-received Scandinavian or Japanese horror… It’s time to pig out on the scary movie equivalent of tarty/spooky Halloween costumes, apple bobbing and dodgy home-made punch with jelly spiders in it. What does the world want out of a truly great Halloween movie? PURE NONSENSE!
