It is that time of the month again where I splurge out all the news I currently have sitting in my inbox. I have an admission to make, despite Halloween being my favourite horror franchise, I never actually saw Halloween Ends at my local cinema. My lame reason is that the cinema had recently started charging to use their car park on top of the ticket price, and so I had refused to visit. As soon as it is available to watch anywhere I will check it out, as I did love Halloween Kills.
Meanwhile on Netflix I have been watching the excellent Sandman, and have recently gotten into Wednesday, the Addams Family spin-off I never knew I needed.
Twin films Panic and Convulsion are sci-fi thrillers that were created in an experimental fashion. Both films use mostly the exact same script to make two different films using different actors in the lead. Saint Heart and Shane Ryan-Reid star in Panic, with Leonard Zhang and Jose Adam Alvarez in Convulsion. Supporting actors in both films include Chris Spinelli, Nicole D'Angelo, Johnny Mask and Lisa London, and the films were directed by Gregory Hatanaka.
The Kickstarter success has led to an additional campaign for a second short film titled Revenge of Innsmouth. This one is to be a dystopian horror set in the future, about the oppressed inhabitants of Innsmouth hoping to fight back against their human oppressors.
