what pulled me away

Every year I get whisked away from our fleabag cinema to chat up and shmooze with folks in the international film scene and this year I had to look after a blog dedicated to this little sidejob. You can check it here, but if you want highlights, check these snippets out below. There will be more to come on the blog like a Q&A with George A. Romero and Stuart Gordon, but in the meantime, you can watch a never before seen, 4 part interview with Dario Argento from 1990 (check the user page for the other 3 parts), and Dario and Brian Yuzna introducing films that they had in the Toronto Festival of Festivals' Midnight Madness selection from 1990. The Bloor Cinema is no longer used by the Fest, but still runs rep and specialty fest programming. Just saw NIGHT OF THE CREEPS there on Thursday with director Fred Decker in person! And in these flashback clips, keep your eyes peeled for this dude:

Sorry ladies, as much as you beg me, that look is not coming back....

Another great year of Midnight Madness, Colin! Thanks for all your great work picking the flicks and pumping up the audience.

When Joe played that clip of you for me, I didn't recognize you AT ALL! Love the earring.

Really sorry I had to miss the fest this year. Maybe next year...

Hey guys. Sorry, this has nothing to do with this post, but I wanted to invite everyone to submit nominating lists to the survey of 31 GREATEST HORROR FILMS going on over at Shoot the Projectionist. Here's a link to the original announcement:

So, you won't do it for the ladies but surely I can't be the only fella here who finds your near adrongyne look enticing! Foxy!
