Mini-FANTASIA Round-Up

WIZARD OF GORE – remake of the HG Lewis film, and not all that bad. Director Jeremy Kasten and producer Dan Griffiths are great guys, and also hung out all weekend for some drunken revelry. The best things about their movie are Crispin Glover as Montag the Magnificent (sadly underused), lots of naked Suicide Girls, and an extended cameo by the great Brad Dourif as, of all things, a Chinese medicine doctor! The movies goes too far overboard on stylistic shooting and editing, but its combination of film noir and LA postpunk is at least original and it’s clear the filmmakers tried to stray as far as they could from the source material, which is a refreshing change.
