Right off the bat I was pulled in with a series of shots and a color scheme that I can only refer to as macabrely comforting. This darkly comedic, whimsically macabre tale is actually quite tender. A love story for the misfits of the world. For those who “crave something greater”. Existential woes and the impact, the legacy, we leave behind explored through an extreme lens.
I had the opportunity to sit down for a quick chat with writers and director of the amazing short film- Stuffed, Theo Rhys + Joss Holden-Rea. A dark and tender love story, seamlessly blending elements of Norman Bates and Sweeney Todd.
There is something uniquely wonderful about introducing a friend to a beloved and treasured favorite film. When the friend actually *enjoys* aforementioned movie… a very specific joyful alchemy occurs, perhaps even resulting in a moment of actual genuine euphoria. What’s the opposite of gatekeeping? Sharing. An invitation. A welcoming to come on in, pop some popcorn, a proverbial patting of the seat take to join in- let’s watch this weirdly wonderful thing together. That is the entire premise of Horror In Session.
A genre enthusiast and a genre newbie discuss beloved horror films. I had the wonderful opportunity of guesting on this week’s episode, with me I brought three of my most beloved films from a subgenre that has really and truly permanently scarred me. A little something I like to call “Don’t Fucking Eat That!” because that’s the way the alarms in my head sound off in random situations thanks largely in part to these three films discussed. And I must say I take great pride and joy in going three-for-three, stamp of approval, these movies were thoroughly enjoyed!
