paranormalactivity1 Watch It: Paranormal Activity

In the summer of 1999, I attended a screening of The Blair Witch Project. It was at the art house theatre where myself and at least half of Rochester’s under-employed creative types enjoyed part-time work. The projectionist had set up a midnight screening the night before the film’s official release, and we were all there. The buzz was immense for Blair Witch, so expectations were high. Mine were completely met; I had never been so scared by a film. I couldn’t sleep that night because I was afraid of what my dreams might bring, something no movie had done since my 7 year-old self was terrified by the half-man/half-dog in the 70′s remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Yet at least a third of the audience that night responded with genuine disappointment: “That’s it? But nothing happened! They got lost, bitched and moaned and we never even saw the witch! What the Hell!”

A few people were saying that last night at the screening of Paranormal Activity I attended. Just like ten years ago, I wanted to smack them. [ Continue Reading ]

IV1 585x295 well, you gotta have SOMETHING to tell your shrink.

The other day, I very innocently looked at one of my favorite blogs, Sea of Shoes, and saw that Jane Aldridge recommended Dario Argento’s 1977 movie “Suspiria”. Because Jane knows her shit, I obviously watched it.

And came about THIS close to breathing into a paper bag. [ Continue Reading ]

sg2 300x400 Flock of Seagulls..

OK, so I have to give it up for my fellow Brazilians!  Not only are they exceptional soccer players, I mean football players (Let’s pretend I didn’t make that mistake!), but they are equally talented Techies! They have created one amazing design studio, located in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil,  that specializes in multiple areas such as digital manipulation, photo-retouch, 2D and 3D illustration, animation, web design and post production.  And since it’s conception in 1998, Seagulls Fly, headed by Fabiano Feijo and Fernando Reule, has been dedicated to providing a “one stop shop for clients who seek a professional, creative, hardworking,fully-committed and enthusiastic partner.”

title wild at heart 585x248 Watch It: Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart features brutal, with-my-bare-hands-type murder; a very possessive mother who deals with stress by covering her entire face and neck with red lipstick; a mysterious crime boss named Mr. Reindeer; lots of close-ups of fire; hot, loud sex; and Willem DeFoe’s creepiest role ever—which is saying something.

But deep down, it’s just an old-fashioned love story. [ Continue Reading ]

magic2 Watch It: Magic (1978)

The original commercial for Magic, seen below, was only aired for one day before it got pulled off the air. Angry parents from across the country called their local stations, wanting to know just what the hell they were trying to pull, giving kids nightmares like that. So was the commercial really so gruesome, so violent that thousands of children lost sleep on the same night for the same reason? Nope. It was just a tight close up of a ventriloquist’s dummy, reciting a macabre poem, with a bit of Jerry Goldsmith’s beautifully eerie score—complete with the creepiest harmonica ever recorded—in the background. That was plenty.

Screen shot 2009 09 17 at 3.13.50 PM 585x254 Same Same but Different

A lot of people saw “The Reader” and fell in love with the lanky, exquisite German actor David Kross, myself included (a LOT). But I’m probably the only one psychotic enough to think to myself “I have to get my hands on everything that kid has ever appeared in, future stuff included.” And so I hunted down his next film, “Same Same but Different” [ Continue Reading ]
