Later in the evening I headed over to a public screening of Grace at The Egyptian, which was preceded by a freaky-fine short film called Rite. Turns out that the short and the feature sort of complement one another quite well ... but here's some "festival buzz" you simply can't buy: Once Grace had ended and the floor was opened for Q&A participants, one of the festival volunteers raised his hand and offered the following information: "Must have been a good movie because we had TWO people faint during the screening!" But what would make one faint? Well, Grace is about a new mother whose baby is ... well, sort of undead. Master Snider will be reviewing Grace for this very blog, but you can catch my early thoughts over at FEARnet.
I clear out the horror file today with The Killing Room and Dead Snow, but of course I'll be back to cover some comedies, dramas, and docos soon enough. I just can't help seeing the spooky stuff first!
