When Sunday came around, the organizers seemed (understandably) tired, but the audiences still wanted more gore and continued to turn up for it. I started off the morning by paying tribute to a film shot right here in my new adopted city. I Didn't Come Here to Die (our review) is the tale of several twentysomethings setting out to do volunteer work in the woods where they come upon evil and sinister forces.

However I appear to be one of the few people who didn’t forgive V/H/S earlier this year and I again am going to be in the minority that doesn’t forgive I Didn’t Come Here To Die. I’m sorry to say, »
