A few quickies:
My review for THE BOOBY HATCH will appear at Fear Zone within the next week or two. As far as Romero-related oddities go, this one may be the oddest: it's a post Latent Image softcore sex comedy directed by John Russo and Rudy Ricci.
It also stars Ricci, who you'll recognize as one of the bikers in DAWN OF THE DEAD, as well as Russ "Johnny" Streiner and David "Flyboy" Emge.
I haven't watched it yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if some other familiar faces pop up...
In other news:
John Harrison recently talked to Fangoria regarding his score for George's new DEAD flick:
"I don’t want to write a score for …OF THE DEAD by starting off with ominous horror movie music, atonal , even pseudo-industrial sounds that are cliché in horror films today. To do that would deliver what everybody expects…this is not that kind of movie. This is something entirely different."
Sounds promising. Follow me for the entire interview.
"I do not have a title for the movie yet,” Romero told Fango this month at the Weekend of Horrors in Chicago. “Right now it’s just called …OF THE DEAD, although I kind of wish I could just name it DIARY OF THE DEAD PART 2. What I can tell you about the story is that it is going to be focused on what is happening in the world right now. The atmosphere is a little different after the Bush years, but I still sense some uncertainty."
Some uncertainty? George Romero, ladies and gentlemen, this year's recipient of the Understatement of the Year Award.
