Last week, Aaron of the dark cascade of horror and sleaze that is THE DEATH RATTLE asked if I'd be interested in contributing to a guest post of some kind in reference to his lively (haha, get it? Romero? Zombies? They're dead!!) GEORGE ROMERO WEEK whether it be a review, or my opinion of the man as a filmmaker. Interestingly enough, several other people were thinking something similar and contributed their thoughts regarding Romero as a director, or reminiscing about his scary monster movies. Becky of THE HORROR EFFECT, Neil Fulwood of AGITATION OF THE MIND and 2 Cool Carl from I LIKE HORROR MOVIES all contributed. Amongst Aaron's countdown, James, a writer for Fangoria and author for the blog, BEHIND THE COUCH contributed a piece and the ultimate duder, Richard of CINEMA SOMNAMUBULIST contributed as well. Get over there and get your grave on, dead heads.
Next up, Franco Gonzalez of the enlightening FILM CONNOISSEUR asked both myself and Shaun Anderson of the intellectual oasis that is THE CELLULOID HIGHWAY if we'd be interested in another monstrously massive team up. The result is a compendium of lycanthropic cinema, an assortment of FULL MOON FRIGHTS from around the world--the good, the bad and the hairy.
Finally, I received an email from Alex Rabinowitz regarding a film review web series, sort of a "Siskel & Ebert" for the alternative crowd with reviews of the best movies Netflix has to offer as well as obscure stuff and reviews in relation to cinematic themes. They also have giveaways viewers can particpate in. Check out their HALLOWEEN EPISODE. Give them a look see as well!
