‘Grave Halloween’ DVD Review

Stars: Kaitlyn Leeb, Cassi Thomson, Graham Wardle, Dejan Loyola, Jeffrey Ballard, Hiro Kanagawa, Jesse Wheeler, Tom Stevens, Kevan Ohtsji, Hyuma Frankowski | Written by Ryan W. Smith, Sheldon Wilson | Directed by Steven R. Monroe

Apparently (at least according to the blurb on the front cover) based on a true story, Grave Halloween is the latest movie from director Steven R. Monroe – yes he of I Spit on Your Grave 1 & 2 fame – who returns to making TV movies for the Syfy channel (I really liked Mongolian Death Worm Fyi) with this, a J-horror inspired slice of mediocrity that tries to mix American and Japanese filmic ideals, never quite meshing the two together well enough to be a complete success.

Deep in stark woodland at the base of Mount Fuji, restless whispers echo as the light fades on a mid-winter afternoon. Here, amongst a maze of roots, a lone figure takes her life, binding

Grave Halloween DVD Review

Director: Steven R. Monroe.

Starring: Kaitlyn Leeb, Cassi Thomson, Dejan Loyola, Graham Wardle, Jesse Wheeler, Tom Stevens, Jeffrey Ballard, Hiro Kanagawa.

Running Time: 89 minutes

Certificate: 18

Grave Halloween? With a title like that you just know you’re in for double the horror. Add to that the fact it all takes place in Suicide Forest, and you’ll be asking “What could possibly go wrong?” In I Spit On Your Grave remake director, Steven R. Monroe’s made for TV movie in the Us, we get an uneven, but not completely unrewarding horror, that pretty much lives up to its cheesy title.

Kaitlyn Leeb plays Maiko, a young Japanese woman who was adopted by an American family long ago. Now living in Japan, she discovers her birth mother committed suicide in a famous suicide spot, and takes along some of her film student pals to document a pilgrimage to recover the body.

The Second Kind of Artist: An Interview with Mike Hoolboom

  • MUBI

Is being photographed the only way to cheat death? Ask Mike Hoolboom, in whose Public Lighting (2004) the question is posed. Presented on 8 October as part of a retrospective of his work at the eleventh CurtoCircuíto—the excellent international short film festival in Santiago de Compostela, a city in Galicia, northwest Spain—Public Lighting is in many ways emblematic of Hoolboom’s work.

To begin with, there’s its agitated, almost frantic need to pay tribute to the world and its miscellany—and to allow such heterogeneity to inform its imagistic, editorial and thematic fabrics. Separated into seven aesthetically distinct segments, Public Lighting is about the many sources of pleasure to be found in an otherwise uncertain universe. It is about Madonna, Philip Glass, New York; it’s about identity and the inevitability of change; it’s about the amusing and tragic disconnect

Blood & Chrome and general updates

Eventful week. To play catch-up:

The big news that every site reported in a slightly different way is that Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome will be a digital series and a TV film, but not a TV show, at least not one produced by Syfy/Universal Cable Prods. You have probably read the Deadline article by now.

With the possibility that Universal may still shop B&C around, it doesn't sound like they have any immediate plans to make more of it beyond the existing pilot/web series/Mow.

No word yet on a release date, but Battlestar Wiki reports that we'll be seeing Blood & Chrome as a web series first and then as a TV movie.

Doug Drexler posted this the other day (full post at the link):

If sets had been built for this show, it would have cost 6 million easily, instead of only the 2 million it did cost,
