Diary of the Dead (REVIEW)

Without a doubt, George Romero is horror royalty. Storming onto the scene in 1968 with a film as transformative of the genre as any to this day, Romero has woven a variety of genre tales featuring everything from witches to vampires to post-apocalyptic motorcycle jousters. But the director never truly seems as comfortable as he does when he's working with his muses, the walking dead. For the second time in three years, Romero has returned to this wellspring of inspiration with "Diary of the Dead." Sadly, his latest effort proves that for this old master, that well may finally be dry.

Craven Vs. Carpenter?

Taxidermia (REVIEW)

On a scale of disgusting cinema ranging from the pie-eating contest in “Stand By Me” to “Salo” (the most disgusting of all possible films), “Taxidermia”, by Hungarian director Gyorgy Palfi has earned a place somewhere between John Waters and G.G. Allin. Even the most desensitized surfer of the darkest corners of the internet will probably find themselves squirming at some of the scenes of gore and bodily fluids contained in this film, but somewhere beneath the puke and entrails and armpit hair there's a kind of grotesque beauty to be found.

Michael Simpson

Back in 1987, Michael A. Simpson directed both "Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers" and "Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland", sequels to the underground cult original, "Sleepaway Camp". This interview was conducted circa 2003, soon after Robert Hiltzik's controversial "Return to Sleepaway Camp" had been announced. At the time, there were issues (and still may be) as to who owned the rights to make sequels, and how fans of Michael's entries to the series were treated by the team behind the original (and the STILL UNRELEASED "Return").

I believe I can safely say that you join a long list of campers in your admiration of her natural endowments.

First, I've got to say that I'm honored you're sitting down to answer my questions. I saw "Unhappy Campers" for the first time a year or so ago, and since then, it's become one of my top five favorite movies.

Glad you like it. It's always great fun to talk with fellow campers. It's amazing how many fans there are of the "Sleepaway Camp" movies.
