Despite a regular diet, the pile of horror yet to be digested grows and grows. Every few weeks we must gorge upon it, or the neglected buffet may buckle from the weight and something precious will fall to the wayside, going unnoticed for weeks and months. This is a risk I cannot take. Which is why we take one day every 6 or so weeks and black out the basement windows for unrelenting hours of horror. Due to travel the feasting has not taken place since November ’07. We are with hunger.
That day, retroactively dubbed the original Horror’s Not Dead All Day Long, had a helluva lineup: THE TRIPPER, HATCHET, ABOMINABLE, BLACK WATER, 13 BELOVED, ALONE, SHROOMS, WRONG TURN 2. It was a fantastic day and even featured a power outage during SHROOMS that lasted for close to two hours, during which the lack of electricity was supplanted with ghost stories. Turns out pretty much everyone I know has seen a ghost in my house. Fantastic topic of discussion during a power outage. Makes the memories of two hours last for weeks.
Tomorrow marks HND:ADL2 and again, I’ve scrapped together what I believe to be a solid line-up. Buzzed about Indies, imported foreigners, procrastinated studio’ers, a screener or two, and some kinetic steamers to cap off the sure to be drunken night:
9AM : MOH: FAMILY (just to warm up while getting ready)
10AM : MOH: SOUNDS LIKE (just to warm up while getting ready)
11AM : STORM WARNING
1PM : INTO THE MIRROR
3PM : EXTE: HAIR EXTENSIONS
5PM : SAW IV
7PM : THE MIST
9PM : CROC
11PM : AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION
1AM : DAY OF THE DEAD
Okay, well, not all of those are new to me/the site, but should be to the viewing group at large. I weighted things a bit heavier early on in the day, when the crowd will (presumably) be less liquored. INTO THE MIRRROR is the Korean flick Alexandre Aja is currently remaking, so I’m eager to take that in. And don’t even get me started on EXTE…hair extensions that kill people!? Sold!
