A zombie mock-u-mentary from the director of Zombie Night and Zombie Night 2, takes the form of a deadpan behind the scenes look at the attempt to make Zombie Night 3, when the world just happens to have been overcome by real zombies. While the first two entries in the series look like z-grade schlock fests, this little spin-off film is actually very well presented and at times extremely funny, with an air of spontaneity and anything goes improvisation. It benefits from a witty script, great comic timing from a cast in on the joke, and a series of uninterrupted long takes during which so much happens one can’t help but wonder how they pulled it off.
Grimmupnorth 2010 is coming to Manchester for a second time this Halloween! Readers may remember last year’s coverage from the first Grimmfest last October ‘09. Well, we’re going back for more this year too. Festival director Simeon Halligan and his crew have spent all year finding some amazing new titles to screen at Manchester’s biggest horror film festival, including Evil: In The Time Of Heroes, which I missed at Eiff so am well up for seeing. There’s also the inventively named Canadian shocker, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, the Japanese genre mash-up Alien Vs Ninja, Thai thriller Slice, Zombie mock-u-mentary Reel Zombies and a horror doc featuring all kinds of industry insiders, The Splat Pack. There’s also a ton of activities and seminars for festival goers to participate in too. Personally I’m looking forward to the special screening for my favourite Argento film, Deep Red. »
