‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ – An Interview With The Whole Cast was one of the few outlets that had a chance to talk to the whole cast of STARZ’s Ash vs. Evil Dead. Bruce Campbell spills the beans on how better and more fun it is to play Ash now that he’s wiser and more experienced compared to 1979.  Read More

The Pyramid (Movie Review)

The “1-4-0″: #ThePyramid is a mix between ‘As Above, So Below’ and ‘The Descent’. It’s a juvenile, fun, horror thrill-ride much like the ones you experience at Universal Studios. Read More

I would say that ‘Mama’ which is presented by executive producer Guillermo Del Toro is not rightly labeled as a horror film, because it is more of a fantasy and supernatural thriller than it is scary. Argentinian director Andrés Muschietti made a short-film in Spanish in 2008 titled ‘Mamá’ along with sister Barbara Muschietti, Del Toro saw something he liked and convinced them to make it into a full-length film. The film approaches what we’ve come to expect from Del Toro such as beauty even in the darkest scenes, an interesting plot and weird supernatural characters. The film is entertaining in it’s own right, but for those that are looking to get spooked you will only be startled and will be taken in a completely different direction. Read More

‘Juan de los Muertos’: Cuba makes its first zombie movie

'Juan de los Muertos': Cuba makes its first zombie movie

A flesh eating zombie film is being produced in Cuba with a budget that is huge by Cuban standards but quite modest almost everyplace else. Juan de los Muertos — “Juan of the Dead” , is the only zombie flick to have ever been produced in Cuba since the 1959 revolution in that country. The film flirts in a comical way with sensitive topics in Cuban life such as private enterprise and Cuban exiles. The film is due to be released in spring or summer of 2011.

In the film, zombies have taken over Havana. The response of the state controlled media is to blame their presence on Cuban exiles backed by the US government. In addition to the politically sensitive issue of Cuban expatriates, “Juan de los Muertos” touches on the issue of Cubans who work in private enterprise to make ends meet. Yahoo News reports as follows.

“State-run media blames the whole thing on government opponents backed by Cuba’s archenemies in Washington, but Juan knows better — and comes up with a plan.

Together with his sidekick, Lazaro — described by the filmmakers as “just as lazy, but twice as stupid” — Juan puts out the word that he is open for business.

Has your grandmother been turned into a zombie? Is your uncle stumbling about with blood coming out of his mouth?

Juan and Lazaro promise to get rid of your undead loved ones for just 15 Cuban convertible pesos ($16) a pop, and to clean up the mess for an extra 20 ($21).”

The film, which is a joint production of Spain’s La Zanfona Producciones, two Spanish television channels, the government of Spain’s Andalucia region and the state-run Cuban Institute of Art and Cinematography, is going into production this week, with shooting scheduled for October. It will be promoted in Spanish speaking markets abroad, as well as Europe and the United States.

The film shows a desire in Cuba to tolerate a wider range of artistic and political expression. Cuban music, art and other forms of entertainment have long had the potential to be marketable commodities abroad. There is an overlap in Cuban musical tastes with some American markets as well as a fanatic devotion to baseball in Cuba that could make for some interesting business possibilities.

Will Cuba evolve in a pragmatic manner towards a market economy? Perhaps freedom will come to Cuba through evolution rather than revolution. “Juan of the Dead” may be a movie about zombies, but it could be very interesting to those who are interested in taking the pulse of contemporary Cuba.

I Spit on Your Grave: Unrated (Movie Review)

How does one recommend a torture film to women? What does one say? “Dear, you’ll love that scene where five men rape a woman silly?” Obviously not, but as a critic, one hopes that the female in question is one whose tastes in macabre films entertain her. For those who are sensitive to bloody images, this review is irrelevant to you. Read More
