Re: BBFC Watch: Upcoming Titles

There were no substitute shots inserted. . I'm now really intrigued. I was at Cine-Excess (cult film festival and conference) a week or so ago and we had a lot of people giving papers on A Serbian Film. Bearing in mind the presenters are academics who supposedly know how to research, this is not wh...

A Company of Wolves is a great choice. Incidentally, have you ever read Carter's "The Passion of New Eve"? It's an apocalyptic novel with gender themes and it is totally fab, IMHO. I would love to see that made into a film.

Mika, Gaga, mad fiddling courtesy of The Levellers and a bit of The Raconteurs.

Re: Your reactions to new films

A good horror film should ruin your appetite! If you find yourself feeling like a full english breakfast straight after an Italian Cannibal film, then it hasn't really achieved it's intended impact, and you're a bit weird. I'd be similarly surprised (even disturbed) if anybody was lighting candles ...

Re:

Saw a preview of An American Haunting with Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek.. Not a great script admittedly, but some good visuals and one or two genuinely jumpy moments... Rachel Hurd-Wood is good, Sutherland hammy. Must admit this is one of the few films that ever really irritated me. It is wel...

Re: Genre guidelines

Do you think these rough genre definitions could culturally shift at all (depending on audience, marketing etc)?

It rules because I get a prize? No? It has "strippers" in it. No? Give up.[/quote]

Strippers'll do for me ;-)

Re: Scary horror

I'd go for Lake Mungo. There is one terrific jump scare in it that you know is coming, but it's the way it does it that gets you. Does anyone know the name of a poltergeist (I think) film set in a girl's bedroom? It came out in the last year and got a fab write up but I lost the clipping and really ...

Your reactions to new films

Hi everyone, When you watch horror do you think about it, 'feel' about it emotionally or or let your gut instinct do the talking (fear, arousal etc)? Do you do a mixture of all three? Does it depend depending on what film you are watching (particularly if it's a film that's new to you). I've just go...

I'll be up for helping out as long as it doesn't involve travel on my part and that the standard ethical procedures are in place. Please feel free to email me (address on my webpage - just google me) if you want to discuss it further.

Good luck!

Can(nes)fantastic!

Hi guys,

This post is brought to you by a bad case of Cannes envy. (Grrr. Stoopid lectures!)

Whether you were there or have been feeding fevered dreams from reports on the web, which of the festival's films have particularly pricked your interests and why?

Re: BEST film of DAY 1

Hatchet 2 delivered the good gory fun expected of it, but Primal was the more original and entertaining film for me. Is anybody voting for Dead Cert? Probably. Different strokes for different folks and all :-) A prize (my eternal impressedness at their brain and bravado) to the person who puts fort...
