Horror Cinema: One Cut of the Dead

A friend invited me out to go see the new Japanese horror film One Cut of the Dead. As soon as I watched the trailer, I knew I wanted to see it.

I highly recommend it. The movie succeeded in mixing horror with comedy in a very satisfying way. I found it original and engaging — from the spooky and dark moments to the ridiculousness of the sitcom-like antics. I left the theatre feeling charmed by the whole experience and will certainly watch it again and again.

Rue Morgue Dark Carnival: George A. Romero

I’m going to get to see George A. Romero at the Rue Morgue Dark Carnival in July! Night of the Living Dead was one of the first horror movies that made me fall in love with the horror genre. The movie’s political commentary elevated the horror to surrealism, and I’ve yet to see that done as well again.
