So, last week I was looking for something to watch and came across DOGMA. It had been awhile since I had seen it, but I was instantly reminded why this is one of my favorite movies, and probably my favorite Kevin Smith film.
You may recall that during our Hellraiser episode, we mentioned that a new installment of the franchise was in production. At that time, details were very vague about Hellraiser Judgement and it was only a month ago that we got an official trailer. My initial thought was that it looked halfway decent, at best. Now, after seeing it, I can say that was a pretty fair assessment.
It’s hard for me to get into a lot of contemporary horror films. For the most part, big horror movie releases are just “jump-scare” fests or remakes. I’ve been meaning to watch Oculus for awhile now as I was very intrigued by the trailer. After finally seeing it, I can say that I wish I had sooner.
Back in the early nineties, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were trying to release their first feature film. Now keep in mind, this was way before the days of South Park, so the pair were still pretty much unknown in the industry. Eventually, they ended up at Troma, where Lloyd Kaufman was willing to pick the film up for distribution.
