It's screening here in Portland this weekend, and I will try to catch it in the theater. Really hoping it works out, as I have been looking forward to it for a long time now. Also, I see they are screening The Burbs on Saturday night with Joe Dante attending for a Q&A. It all would make for an interesting night out, haha.
Honestly, I really loved it. great creature effects, shades of From Beyond, The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13, Hellraiser and more. I thought it was extremely well done for such a small independent affair. can't say enough good things about it really, which may be a higher review than others have given it, but i was super jazzed about it the whole time.
Also...I watched Phantasm: Ravager now that the nice complete box set has arrived....There is no objective excuse for me to enjoyed it as much as I did. it is without a doubt one of the cheapest affairs i've seen in a long time, and while these movies have always operated on a level of nightmare logic, this one just ran with that to an almost laughable degree. the acting from all new players was dry and stiff, the audio unprocessed, the effects were the worst type of bad CGI...
but also for an hour and twenty five minutes Reggie, Mike, and the Tall Man duked it out, and I didn't stop smiling the whole time, so what do I know.
Its probably the worst movie I've ever liked.
I have been in this business a long time. Now if I don't want to do a show, it's not because I got stage fright. It's because some creature from beyond doesn't want me to do the show. Now gangway.
