Dinner for Fiends
I’m sure you’ve seen I Am Legend by now; hell, judging by the box office I’d bet some of you have seen it twice. So have we and we’re going to goddamn well talk about it in the latest edition of Dinner for Fiends!
Indie films are really what our genre is all about. That’s where the Next Big Thing almost always comes from; just a guy (or a gal) with a vision and enough money to get it on screen. It’s a staple of what makes us horror fans, and something we talk about way more often than any other sub-genre.
The Mist (review) is one of those films that, we hope, is going to be discussed and dissected for years to come. It’s a fantastic adaptation of a Stephen King story with just the right amount of liberties, but that ending ... Wowzers.
It’s been a long time since any of us have been scared. Odd, since we make a business out of watching things that are meant for the sole purpose of freaking people out then, isn’t it?
Of course, a new horror movie is out in theaters and managed to take home first place at the box office, so we have to tear it apart as best we can. It’s just what we do. Myself, Uncle Creepy, Andrew Kasch and Paul Nomad got together over the weekend to discuss the ups and downs of 30 Days of Night, talk up a new indie film you should all see called Paranormal Activity and just generally bullshit about all that’s new and cool in horror.
Well, Rob Zombie’s vision of Halloween hit this weekend and destroyed all existing box office records for the Labor Day time frame. But what did the DC staff think of it?
Editor's Note: This DFF was supposed to be up on Thursday but we had "technical" issues. Sorry if it's a bit out dated now! Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Did you miss us? You know you did. For being so patient, we decided that you should get a new round of horrific discussion of all things horror. Um... right. So here you go!
