Razor Reel 2013

I'll be hosting several Q&A sessions with filmmakers at the Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival the following two weekends. Here are the trailers of the movies I will be talking about. Come by and say hello if you have the chance.


In 2011, the Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival buzzed with The Dead, a zombie movie set against the open spaces of Africa. This year, the Ford brothers return with a sequel that takes the action to India and ramps up the action, violence, and drama. Directors Howard and Jonathan Ford will answer questions about their movie at their Q&A session on October 26.

The Otherworld - L'autre Monde


Several years ago, Richard Stanley (Dust Devil, Hardware) had an inexplicable experience in the French locality of Monts├ęgur. Its impact made the filmmaker decide to return to the area and shoot a feature-length documentary about the esoteric mysteries there. I will host a Q&A session on The Otherworld on October 27 and will be joined by director Richard Stanley and composer Simon Boswell.

On Tender Hooks


For more than a year, director Kate Shenton filmed several groups of people who pierce themselves with hooks and hang in mid-air from rigs. On Tender Hooks explores a wide variety of experiences and opinions on the subject and shows us how the human body can achieve extraordinary things. Shenton will be present for the screening and Q&A of her documentary on November 1st.

  2. That's cool you'll be doing an interview and Q&A session with the director. Hardware was one weird movie.
    Will pass on the last one though.

  4. Tender Hooks reminds me of a scene in the movie, "A Man Called Horse."

  5. The first and last are giving me creepy crawlies. I'd watch them all, though.
