HHFF #11 Feast – Spastic Horror with Clu Gulager (ALERT!) directorial debut by his son John. I remember watching Project Greenlight document how this film was made and thinking that it was a documentary on how NOT to make movies, but somehow it turned out Awesome. BLOODY as Hell!
HHFF #12 Possession (1981) – Like a Clive Barker film way before he was making movies. This film presents an exemplary model of a healthy adult relationship; for psychopathic delusional schizophrenics. Isabelle Adjani delivers a jaw dropping performance here by detaching herself from her own humanity, that is to say, she goes completely bat-shit, screaming banshee, crazy. I’ve never seen anything like what that woman does in this film. Possession also features a particularly hilarious sequence involving the least inconspicuous private detective in the history of mankind.
HHFF #13 Mimic: Directors Cut – Another early film from director Guillermo del Toro. Great effects, but this one gets tedious for me, and goddammit I hate bugs.
HHFF #14 Priest – Vampires vs Jedi Knight Catholics in a Judge Dread dystopian future, complete with Matrix camera effects and crappy CGI monsters. Despite this implausible mash-up it felt as though I has seen this before, and it seemed incomplete; like they were setting up for a trilogy that will never fucking happen. However, there is some comic book style enjoyment to be had here.
HHFF #15 Carrie – Worst Prom Ever. Also, Travolta clubs a pig. Piper Laurie gives the performance of her lifetime in this adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Fantastic Film!
