    “KISS OF THE DAMNED” (SXSW Movie Review)

    KISS OF THE DAMNED will most often be referred to as throwback. Its dreamy score, its opening titles, its visual flair and just how swooning the cast is all hark to the Roger Vadim, Jean Rollin Eurohorror aesthetic beloved by so many. More than a call, though, Xan Cassavettes’ vampire tale is a refresher. Entrenched in supernatural high society, its heightened senses, from ample bloodshed to melodramatics to lips that smash hard when they come together has found a way to make vampirism exhilarating onscreen again.

    Tyler Labine: More “TUCKER & DALE” on the way?

    One of Fango’s favorite horror/comedies of recent years is TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL, in which a couple of likable backwoods hillbillies are mistaken for serial killers by college kids who blunder into their own bloody deaths. It’s one film we’d welcome a sequel to, and we chatted with one of the stars about that progress.

    “REWIND THIS!” (SXSW Movie Review)

    Partway through director Josh Johnson’s VHS doc,  Alamo Drafthouse programmer Lars Nilsen explains, in his summation, culture hasn’t yet reflected on the impact of the dead (or not so) format. That impact, when looked at historically is where REWIND THIS! shines. Filmmakers like Frank Henenlotter, Charles Band, JR Bookwalter and Roy Frumkes (who very humorously hates the format), whose movies lived and found audiences on VHS, offer fantastic context and insight on being at the forefront. Anecdotes about shining to tapes before studios and the early days of sell-through prices make for great stories, while arguments about just what VHS did for low budgets, both on the distribution and filmmaking ends, are just a few buzz words away from sounding incredibly similar to the current pro-talk for digital revolution.

    MESSAGES IN A BOTTLE: COMIC BOOK STORIES BY B. KRIGSTEIN (Comic Review)

    FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS’ latest in classic cartoonist anthologies celebrates the groundbreaking work of BERNIE KRIGSTEIN (1919-1990). Starting with some whimsical westerns, swashbuckling adventure yarns, and rather rote noire thrillers that he broke into the biz with and managed to elevate above the hack writing he was assigned, MESSAGES IN A BOTTLE winds down with quirkier fare he tried to infuse his innovative flare into before dropping out of the field entirely, to pursue fine art, weary of the restrictions put upon him by the industry. But the in-between stuff is where everything really clicks, particularly during his mid-century years at EC COMICS.
