Back from opening night of the Nevermore Film Festival at the Carolina Theatre.
John Dies At The End - Film adaptation of the recent novel from the director of Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep, John Dies At The End for me was Bill & Ted by way of Buckaroo Banzai and A Scanner Darkly, and a touch of Phantasm and Galaxy Quest. A lot of weird and bizarre fun. Recommended, much fun. Great supporting performances by Paul Giamatti and the always-reliable Clancy Brown.
The ABCs of Death - 26 horror directors worldwide, each one given 3-4 minutes, a letter of the alphabet, and free rein. We were hoping for a modern Gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies, especially given that today is Edward Gorey's birthday.
We found The ABCs of Death disgusting and offensive enough we walked out a little over halfway through. If you have any idea of the films that I have watched and enjoyed, or when not enjoyed I was impressed with on some level, this should be a caution to you.
