Take a look at what is hanging at the Carolina Theater in Durham this weekend:
How cool is that?? I dropped it by early this week to see if they were interested in it and boy were they! I can’t tell you how honored I am to see it up there all weekend. This wall hanging was truly a labor of love from a passion for the festival. To have it become part of the festival – amazing. I’m picking up this week to take it on a little tour and will then donate it to the Carolina Theater, forevermore.
Here’s a little perspective shot:
Here’s the Day 3 Recap!
Here’s the films we saw today and including our viewer’s choice ratings!
|Four Headless Horsemen, Viewer’s choice: Miskatonic University
This was a hard choice! I really liked all four of the long shorts presented. At the end of the day, Miskatonic University kept my attention the best. I’m a fair weathered Lovecraft fan so I can’t say how authentic it feels. I think it helps that the film maker was in attendance. Something about hearing their passion always adds points.
|The Shower, Score:9
This is a fun zombie movie! It has some genuine laugh out loud moments and I liked the idea of zombies that still talk and think a bit. Clever!
|Across the Styx, Viewer’s Choice: AM/FM
Another hard choice! The long form shorts were awesome this year! I settled on AM/FM because I loved the simplicity of it. It tells a complete and interesting story without a ton of pomp and circumstance. I absolutely loved the 1950’s style alien cut aways. Brilliant!
|The Last Days on Mars, Score: 9
If you’re looking for a good mutant space zombie film, this is it! There’s nothing groundbreaking about this space survival. I’ve seen it before in other films. That doesnt mean that sometimes I don’t want to see something that fits in a box. It’s well made with fun action and an interesting premise.
What a great year and a great festival! Thank you Nevermore Film Fest committee, the film makers, and everyone at The Carolina Theater that make it happen. You all are superstars! Can’t wait to see you next year.
