    Hoop-tober film #2


    Roger Spottiswoode's tight little 80's thriller features Jamie Lee Curtis, mid-horror-marathon, and a lovely small role for Oscar winner Ben Johnson. The who-done-it aspect isn't terribly hard to figure out but T.Y. Drakes script does throw a couple of fun red herrings into the mix. Inventive and incredible cinematography from John Alcott elevates the film above many of its' contemporaries as does the little twist to the ending.

    Although Spottiswoode would later find some success with several…

    Hoop-Tober film #1

    Hello and welcome to Hoop-Tober. Thank you to all of those participating. I am floored by the response and am excited by the amount of interaction between members both old and new.

    Without further adieu:

    Horror films in the 80's birthed a prodigiously talented roster of creative film professionals into the world. Frank Darabont, Dean Cundey, Kathryn Bigelow, Renny Harlan, Shane Black, to name a few, all started in or got their break in horror films. Many…

    'Just a sec. Time out. Before you ever went there, we had reporters reporting on genocide after genocide. Just because you put on a fucking safari helmet and went and looked at some poop doesn't give you the right to insult what we do, so continue.'

    "Sorry, I'm just saying I'm not a journalist. I'm not there to report-"

    'Obviously, go ahead.'

    David Carr. What a gift, what a loss.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Dear 1968:

    We made a film that has the following:

    -Female protagonist.
    -Whoops! Now an African-American protagonist.
    -It is in black & white.
    -It's all in one night! All in one one house!
    -We wait forever to even kind of tell you what's going on
    -People eat other people! You even get to see it!
    -Women die!
    -Kids die!
    -Kids kill their folks!
    -Brothers kill sisters!
    -Wait, everyone dies!
    -Whatever was happening has no conclusion!

    Please enjoy our film,

    George A.…
