    Rotterdam Q&A: Richard Raaphorst on “FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY”

    “I hope you will be just as scared as I am
    right now, standing in front of you all!” Dutch director Richard Raaphorst sure
    knew how to introduce the world premiere of his film at the International Film
    Festival in Rotterdam. While FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY might not be as nerve-racking
    as the première of your first horror flick, it sure is a hell-of-a-lot of fun.

    “HALLEY” (Rotterdam Movie Review)

    The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) is known throughout the world for its all-encompassing program: all genres, from all seven continents. Well, to be honest we haven’t heard anything from Antarctica for a while now, but they’ll be back, rest assured. As always the focus in this year’s 42nd edition rests on human interest, but as far as genre films are concerned, there’s enough to keep us interested. HALLEY, for example, is a very bleak Mexican horrordrama that will make you think twice about dreaming of life eternal.

    hybrid SOUTHERN COMFORT; and went back to the Big Easy for 1989’s JOHNNY
    HANDSOME. Now he’s making the city’s streets run red again with the Sylvester

    Women in Horror 2013: Marina de Van’s “DARK TOUCH”

    An incredible talent, Marina de Van and her stylistic explorations of disassociation and self-discovery are among the most excitingin international cinema. Where IN MY SKIN (Dans ma peau) graphically announced a provocative new voice, DON’T LOOK BACK (Ne te retourne pas) saw an ascent to a gorgeous visual command of Hitchock-ian suspense. Currently in progress on what’s only her third feature since 2002, the Ireland-set DARK TOUCH, de Van continues her immensely personal journey digging into similar themes, only this time with children and all they suffer.

    It’s a timeless precursor to everything from the wicked grin
    of FINAL DESTINATION’s elaborate doom to the morbidly humorous goth teen angst
    now sold fervently in suburban malls. While certainly not the first to reveal a
    sense of gallows humor about imminent death, Edward Gorey’s GASHLYCRUMB TINIES
    hath endured, influencing the likes of Tim Burton and Clive Barker and
    reassuring that even as we suffer the little children to come unto the Grim Reaper,
    it’s quite alright to crack a smile.
