Yeah he's been doing that for a while now... Pretty sure he posts info about it on his Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/directorjohncarpenter/

A cinema house like 2 hours away from me is doing a showing of JC's The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China... I so wish I could go! :cry:

well this is an interesting story, and horror movie made by a now-deceased meth-fueled millionaire over 5 years...
https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/m ... naire-meth

A recent item in the Hollywood Reporter laid out the whole extraordinary account, a bizarre showbiz footnote that’s part cautionary tale and part inspiring DIY triumph. Andrew Rork Getty, scion of the Getty oil dynasty, set out on a quixotic journey in 2002: he’d drafted the script for a horror film based loosely on a series of nightmares he’d personally had, and intended on using as much of his own fortune as necessary to bring it to life. Never one to let a little thing like inexperience stop him, Getty rounded up a crew of actors with no idea what they were getting into and dove into shooting on what was then titled The Storyteller. Production ultimately stretched out over the course of five years, progressing in fits and starts as Getty devised elaborate custom camera rigs, pricy original sets and, in one instance, a large animatronic octopus designed to play a drum kit.

After he called a wrap on shooting, Getty continued to obsess over perfecting each and every frame of this labor of love. He converted one of his mansion’s many rooms into a post-production suite, where he spent untold years on intricate in-camera special-effects techniques. Producer Michael Luceri estimates Getty’s personal expenditure on the movie somewhere in the neighborhood of $5m, a figure that left the heir in financial ruin. His story came to a tragic end in 2015, when he died at age 47 from a hemorrhaging ulcer brought on by a long history of recreational meth usage. He wouldn’t live to see the completion of his life’s work, but his absolute, unmatched devotion to the project shines through in the now-available finished cut.




oh yeah i'm totally gonna check this out :giggle:

Someone I follow on Facebook that does a horror podcast went through and made a list of his favorite horror movies released for each year he's been alive (since 1973 for him). I thought that would be an interesting things to put together, so I might make one of my own...

Sam Raimi defends The Evil Dead and horror on a UK show back in 1987...


Part 2:
Spoiler: show


I am a case study for what this anti-horror guy is talking about, that flies in the face of his narrative. I grew up on horror movies from a very young age. I loved the gore effects and basically my room looked like Tommy Jarvis from F13 Part 4 or Mark Petrie from Salem's Lot... but spoiler alert; Even after 40 plus years of being exposed to fantasy violence in media I still am disgusted, horrified and sad when I see REAL violence and the effects of violence on real people. I haven't been desensitized to it. Anecdotal? Sure, but I see the same or similar stories from everyone I've ever seen or met that is into horror, especially now that it's so much easier for communities to come together on the internet. I don't believe for a second that, under proper, ongoing adult supervision, a child would be effected negatively by watching fantasy violence.

What a giant fucking pussy that British guy on the panel is... how does he even function in society?

Know what? I'm the same, been brought up on horror and the first one I saw was The Evil Dead. Had to go watch "Clueless" with my best friends sister afterwards just to get over the trauma lol. But I digress. I am actually fine with real life violence. I've had to deal with it in a couple of situations in life preforming first aid on some victims of car crashes... even held a mans guts from spilling out of his body once. Doesn't phase me at all but it might be because I was in the moment and the need to help overpowered the need to vomit profusely. Was this a result of a childhood of horror.... not sure, but I can't dismiss the fact that it definitely helped.

I mean sure I can "handle" real life violence and gore and whatnot, but I'm still effected by it.... in the moment though is a different story, I am cool as a cucumber under that kind of pressure. I'm not sure that I'd say that watching fake violence, etc had anything to do with that ability necessarily, but it's possible.

i have a similar tale. i was raised on Dawn of the Dead, Alien, John Carpenter films, and mostly horror from the 70s & early 80's. as i got older i started getting a natural scientific & medical curiosity. in college i did an internship at Johns Hopkins Department of Pathology as a pathology photographer. on my first day i had to do photos of heart slices. i was down in pathology so much; i've seen an open cadaver. bins full of organs laid out like a buffet. i've been in the middle of an emergency brain operation. i could go on but don't want to churn stomachs more that i have to.

after school i interviewed to be a crime scene photographer but didn't get the job (too many drugs lol). instead, i ended up working in a lab processing crime scene photos. images of people hit by cars. images of a guy who committed suicide with a shotgun to his face. horrors no one ever wants to see.

i do believe the gore in films did somewhat desensitize me to being able to *handle* seeing these things and work in these fields. HOWEVER, it did nothing to desensitize my inner workings, and how my heart felt seeing such real life horror. it affected me deeply. things i can never erase seeing. and i left the field specifically because i was afraid that one day, i would see someone i knew in those pictures.

truth is, i'm a big wuss who cries when she hears bad things happening to children and babies especially, and who can't get through humane society commercials on tv. babies & animals, man. destroys me every time.

I have no words. Completely gutted. Rest in Peace George A. Romero... :(
http://variety.com/2017/film/news/georg ... 202497068/

Anyone that knows me, knows what George A. Romero and his films meant to me, especially growing up. One of my fondest memories is spending an entire weekend at my grandmothers house watching a VHS rental of Romero's Dawn of the Dead over and over again, and learning how to connect two VCRs together in order to make a copy to keep... Love it or loathe it, we have Grandaddy Romero to thank for the zombie apocalypse in media. :(

The story is great, the movie is one of those terrible classics... I mean I think that you can tell from the hokey guy-in-a-suit monster effects, but it's got some crazy scenes in it. Well worth the watch IMO.
