Feed me...


I received a movie from TLA yesterday called Feed, directed by Brett "Lawnmower Man" Leonard. I'd heard of this sick little bitch of film, of course...it's gotten quite a lot of coverage in some of the...ahem...major genre publications. So, imagine my delight when I got this in the mail.

I've only watched about a half hour of the film. I started watching it last night, and I got really tired (I've been zonked out on Percoset for a couple of days here...root canal therapy will knock you on your ass). From what I've seen thus far, though, this is going to be a bitter little pill to swallow. I'm going to review the living crap out of Feed, but in the meantime, go out there and get yourself a copy.

It's one of the sicker movies (just based on the first half hour, I remind you) that I've seen in a while. You'll never look at a morbidly obese person the same way again...and that's a promise.

So, I get an email from Dante Tomaselli yesterday. Dante, as you know, is the director of the hallucinogenic Desecration, the even more hallucinogenic Horror, and the somewhat more hallucinogenic and more traditional Satan's Playground (my review of the latter coming soon).


Dante's been working on his new film The Ocean, and so far, all signs point to it being (you guessed it) hallucinogenic, though somewhat more traditional than any of his work thus far. In an effort to keep me posted, Dante told me the following:

"
I have the best news coming up. Please please keep this off the record. This is a secret. But I am in talks with someone to produce THE OCEAN (my next film). And that someone is..."

...ahem. And that's all I can say. Well, almost...
Dante did tell me who that person is. It IS adimittedly cool news, and I would very much like to share that news with you. Sometimes, though, I've just got to stay cool and keep things quiet...or mostly quiet, anyway.

Suffice it to say that this mystery producer is a big name...a BIG BIG name. That's really awesome news for Dante, his future, and his film.

So, as soon as Dante says, "post that fucker", I'm going to break the news officially.

So, I'm trying to get a few things accomplished at Atrocities Cinema.com...
  • Launch Shock Radio
  • Launch this blog. :)
  • Get my tickets and hotel reservations for Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors in Secaucus in a couple of weeks
  • Arrange meetings (the term "meetings" used in the loosest possible sense, of course) with J.T. Petty, Dante Tomaselli, and others
  • Launch a short film competition...more details to come
Since I'm juggling all of this, I don't exactly have tons of time to post my regular reviews and stuff on AC. However, rest assured that I'm working on it.
