KEEP UP WITH THE ALAN, PAUL & IAN AS THEY ATTEND THE 66TH CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
Then there’s … the nightmarish creature feature THE GOOD PEOPLE and the James Watkins co-produced and co-written THE LOCH starring Peter Mullan as a man driven to financial ruin whose family massacre plans get upset by the arrival of Nessie.
I’ll end this postcard with a mini review of the absolutely delightful documentary SHOOTING BIGFOOT about three sets of crazy people frantically trying to track down the fabled Sasquatch creature. Think of a cross between BEST WORST MOVIE and THE AMERICAN SCREAM and that’s this hilarious, thought provoking and quite blood-feezing journey of discovery through the mentally disturbed minds of fanatics who’ll do anything to prove they are right.Alan Jones
Finally I watched an extended promo presentation package for a high budget, high concept Australian creature feature TERRITORIAL – a mix of ALIEN and PREDATORS with all real FX (no CGI) from exec producer Greg (WOLF CREEK) Mclean which brings us full circle.Paul McEvoy
