    “CLOSER TO GOD” (Fantastic Fest Review)

    Out here in the real world, the marriage of medical inquiry to ever-evolving technology has eradicated plagues, advanced life expectancy dramatically, and provided a good deal of the planet’s inhabitants with a standard (and quality) of living that has vastly expanded our ability to pursue individual dreams and aspirations in ways those who previously trudged through human history could not even begin to fathom. (On this point, see Matt Ridley’s epic 2011 tour de force, THE RATIONAL OPTIMIST.) There are, of course, tragic and deeply disturbing examples of vile excess in the pursuit of a purported common good—the Tuskegee experiment, MKUltra, Project 4.1, profoundly immoral and heinous animal experimentation, the Burke and Hare murders—but, generally speaking, the benefits that have redounded to we the living via our collective (and overwhelmingly non-psychotic!) march of progress are, in context, nearly as fantastical as they are miraculous.

    Recap: The 2014 Eyegore Awards & Universal Hollywood Horror Nights

    For those who do not know, the Eyegore awards are the “bad-ass version of the Oscars”, according to the fantastic Danny Trejo who presented a Gargoyle statuette to long time ‘compadre’ Robert Rodriguez at Friday night’s award ceremony held at Universal Studios. Yet the awards also mark the beginning of the Halloween season each year and honor outstanding artists in horror, as well as raising the curtain for the horror mazes at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.
