We Are What We Are (2013) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Wasn't on my radar that they remade the Mexican original from a few years back. Reviews make it sound like a Let The Right One In/Let Me in situation where there are enough differences to justify both of them existing...
Watch S-VHS, JD, and take one for the team!
Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
Don Coscarelli is doing a Q&A after the 7:30PM showing of John Dies at the End tonight and tomorrow night at the Nuart. He will also introduce the 9:55PM show on both nights and the midnight show tonight.
Hell Baby (2013) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
I'm in.But Hell Baby is not all laughs, not by a longshot. There is some spectacular horror thrown in here and there that really tries to level the playing field against the constantly driven comedy. The overuse of some comedy may actually be the only real issue with the film, but that's understandable given the overwhelming amount of comedians in the cast, who often seemed to be trying to outdo one another, no doubt due to the fair amount of improvisation used in the film.
So while it may need a slight trim here and there, Hell Baby is a welcome addition to the horror comedy sub-genre. While it would be nice to see it make it to a wide release, unfortunately it's more likely to end up a limited theatrical/VOD feature. But give it a chance; I would certainly watch it again. If you enjoyed Tucker and Dale or have had the pleasure of seeing Grabbers, this might be right up your alley. Even if those were not your bag, if you like this cast, you should enjoy it as well.
I did go to the 9:55 show on Friday night after dinner at Plan Check. Coscarelli introduced the film, as he said he would. He brought up some of the actors, including Angus Scrimm!!!, Doug Jones and Tai Bennett (kooky guy, very fun); apologized for not being able to do a Q&A... and then did a short Q&A!
