Last Week in Horror: 4/27 – 5/04

Posted by Peter Hall - May 4th 2008 @ 10:47 am

Last Week in horror seemed quite busy, though not a whole lot happened in the studio realm. Lots of little news to pepper the place, ranging from no longer relevant ‘rappers’ headlining what I can only assume to be an amazing movie called THE PIG PEOPLE to Hammer Films, of all joints, picking up the remake rights Tribeca Film Fest favorite (and quite anticipated on this end) Swede vampire flick LET THE RIGHT ONE IN.

And, of course, Uwe Boll is back at it. This time just flat out making shit up, saying Michael Bay accepted his boxing challenge and that the only way to see the event live is to bring 10 POSTAL ticket stubs. And, of course, he says all this while wearing his GoldenPalace.com T-Shirt;

“I think Round 3 or Round 4, you will go down in history. Not only for the worst war movie ever, PEARL HARBOR. No, also for the worst boxer in the ring against Uwe Boll ever. Thank You.”

No. Thank YOU, Uwe Boll! Thanks be to you forever.

    I’ll never understand your hatred of The Descent.

    I know. Every time I see a comment like yours I think…”Man, maybe I should watch it again…” I fell for that once and hated it more the second time around.

    I think now, though, enough time has passed that I may once again be objective about it, if I give it a third shot…

    By the way, you lost the “lack of character development” card with your review of [rec].

  4. May 5th, 2008 | 2:58 pm | #4

    I think there is a distinction between a lack of and failure to. [REC] has a lack of because it has no goal to strive towards other than mere survival. There is no back story to any of its characters. The only history we’re given is limited to a day or so prior and even then it is purely for informational purposes (and sparse, as well).

    THE DESCENT, however, tries to have back story. Neil Marshall tries to have dynamic between his characters, he tries to set each of them up with character specific obstacles. He tries.

    I was just trying to get a rise out of you.
