Once more into the breech dear friends, with another report on the wonderful films playing Cabane A Sang.
MIXED MEATS 3
Opening with a trailer for a film called ZOOMBIES. the film set a high bar with a great ending.
PAINTED is one of my favorite films of the festival. The film concerns a man who tries to contact the lost spirit of his wife by having a demon painted a picture. This is magnificent on every level. Its also genuinely scary and suspenseful. I would love to see this expanded to into a feature.
GOLDEN RAIN is an amusing tale of a man in a bathroom that has the unfortunate problem of having to follow PAINTED. This would have played better had it been in a different position.
HELL ON COTTON HILL is the story of killer rabbits. Think the rabbits from Monty Python and The Holy Grail. This is a lot of fun.
DECAPITATION is a wicked short about a man who plays a video game.... and that is all I can say.
SMILES I've seen a couple of times before. Its a supremely f-ed up film about a man going to his girlfriends home for dinner. It might scar you for life.
SANTALAND is a disturbing, twisted animated film that you need to see.
MIXED MEATS 4
The section begins with a trailer for TERROR TALES about a beauty shop where people see visions of their future.
MATAOLO is a brief tale of a woman who says good bye to a friend is stalked by a strange person. I would be interested to see what comes next.
OVERKILL is a horror spoof sending up conventions of teens in peril from a masked killer. It covers SCREAM territory in a couple minutes and with more laughs.
NEKROFOREST is an experimental film of decaying things in the forest. Its actually quite beautiful
POLTER has a man calling a supernatural help line when a poltergiest takes up residence in his house. Its a great deal of fun
EVERY TIME WE MEET YOUR WHOLE FUCKING FACE EXPLODES. A correct but way too long title hides a wonderfully charming romance between and a girl whose face explodes when she is excited. This if a small joy
