Storyline

Halloween 2003 marked the 13th anniversary of the Chiller Theatre Horror Movie Convention ... but there was nothing conventional about it. UnConventional is Revolution Earth's second feature-length documentary. This film chronicles the insanity that ensued at the 13th annual Chiller-Con, held at the Meadowlands Sheraton Hotel in East Rutherford, NJ. The story of the weekend is told through the eyes of six different people, each a representative of the sorts that the Chiller-Con attracts: Gunnar Hansen, the original man behind the mask; Tiffany Shepis, a scream queen on the rise; Bob Gonzo, a "micro-budget" filmmaker; two rabid fans; and one of the key men who helps run the convention. Six different people, six different perspectives, one crazy weekend. It certainly promises to be UnConventional. Just keep telling yourself ... it's only a documentary ...

Superb Effort
30 October 2004 | by (New YOrk New York) – See all my reviews

Daniel Doyle has the daunting task of taking a sub culture and bringing it to the masses,while still poking fun at the sub culture itself.ALthough he misses on a few targets his steady and crafty talents make the movie flow evenly despite the subject matter.

Doyle's representation of the fans and the "stars" of this genre is done with compassion and understanding, enough so that you actually want to learn more about them and this pathos that they have so devotedly followed.Even if you're not a big fan of the horror genre,you'll come to understand why this event is Disney World and Mardi Gras all rolled into one for these "ghoul groupies".I personally would like to see what Doyle could do with a budget of some size.You can tell this was made on a shoe string budget,but you can also tell that he used it all and to the fullest effect in Unconventional.

For some older fans of horror this is a real treat with the likes of Zacharly"the cool ghoul" and grand poobah of the convention, as well as some of horrors' pantheon such as; Linda Blair(The Exorcist 1&2), Steve Railsback ( Lifeforce and Ed Gein) and even the original Leatherface of Texas Chainsaw fame.

All in all Doyle does a splendid job of showing all movie fans the power of cinema in regards to it's fans, and the devotion of fans to this medium of entertainment.Definitely worth watching even with the lights off.
