  • Q&A: Jeffrey Dean Morgan talks Horror-Thriller “DESIERTO”

    ,,

    For most filmmakers, telling a relevant and timely story can be a difficult task considering how quickly the global culture and interests shift between production and release. But in some cases, certain films become relevant in the most unlikely ways, such as in the case of Jonas Cuaron’s DESIERTO, a horror-thriller following a trigger-happy madman who hunts a group of immigrants looking to cross the U.S. border. In a political climate in which immigration has become one of the most discussed topics in this election season, DESIERTO has become surprisingly apropos in pop culture, which adds another level to it’s stripped-down, predator v. prey narrative.

Martin Clavaster–father of Clarissa Clavaster—love of John Riggi’s life—was nothing if not the following three things: cockney, terrifying, and a hater of Italians. John Riggi, on the other hand, embodied all of the qualities a person like Martin despised, the most worrisome of which being a Sicilian heritage. This was a terrible match. But here the two of them were, in a small cafe, on a Sunday afternoon, just one week out from the wedding.

    ,,

    In an old mob joint down in South Philly on one rainy day in October, something amazing happened: Philadelphia got a taste of something special. Of course, I am talking about this past weekend’s Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (PUFF), which this writer attended during their eclectic Saturday, the day they screened their International Oddities collection of shorts. This diverse selection of horror, sci-fi, and bizarre shorts from around the world mirrored the tenor of the festival overall. While the mission statement for the festival said it was to ‘hang out and watch great movies with cool people,’ it didn’t take long to realize something else was going on there.
