Those lucky bastards over at IGN got their hands on the official trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In, which Magnet will unspool in New York and LA on October 24th as part of their Six Shooter Film Series. It’s subtitled, not dubbed, which makes me happier than it probably should.
Just the other day we let you know about Cloverfield helmer Matt Reeves being chosen as the director of the Let the Right One In remake, and while the selection is “eh” to most of us, Tomas Alfredson, director of the brilliant
Yes, that’s right, horror is dead. All right, maybe not dead exactly, if it were we’d be out of a job, but it’s certainly not looking too healthy. It's emaciated, too pale, and tufts of hair keep falling out.
I really don’t know how I feel about this or pretty much any other poster that’s come out for Let the Right One In. They’ve all got the same general color scheme and don’t really say anything at all about the movie. I find it strange since there are so many iconic shots in this film that could be better utilized.
I don’t know what it is about discussing a Paul W.S. Anderson movie, but for some reason it made us all really ... gay. The homosexual under and overtones in this Dinner for Fiends made us all take a long, hard look at our own sexuality. We found it disturbing.
The Toronto After Dark Film Festival has announced the first batch of new horror, sci-fi, action, and cult feature films that will be shown at the festival this October 17-24.
Magnet Films, the genre branch of Magnolia Pictures, have officially released the theatrical series they’re calling Six Shooter Films, ”six films from the vanguard of quality worldwide genre cinema”.
Another year of Fantasia has come to an end, and with that end come the results for Fantasia’s Feature Films competition. And the winners are...
I’m baaaack. Not since four years ago, the first time we started the Fantasia blog has anyone had to do the coverage solo, so props to McCannibal for keeping the train rolling last week. It’s a tough job fitting in two, three, and sometimes four films a day, choking down a grease laden meal, drinking the skuzzy yeasty swill that is all you can get after leeching a beer ticket or two off of Mitch, and heading home at midnight to start writing.
As I mentioned in my opening soiree blog for this year’s Fantasia Festival, it’s been a tough one without my compadre Evil Andy. Fantasia is not a situation where one can be semi-committal – any given time of day where other obligations tie you down can lead to a cinematic masterpiece (or disasterpiece) slipping through your fingers.

If you live in or around LA or are planning to be in the area at the end of June, you could be among the lucky few who get to see Hellboy II: The Golden Army a full 13 days early.
Another Tribeca has come and gone, and with it another great selection of horror movies (hit the “Tribeca 2008” link to read about ‘em). I expected at least one or two would take home some awards, but to learn that a horror movie got Tribeca’s feature prize in the festival? That’s just awesome.
