Like Shallow Grave you say? I'm a bit more intrigued now. But what was that old animation from? The one with naked Harry climbing up a glass box? Anyone care to show off their knowledge of obscure nudey flicks?

There's several onlines stores but I recommend: www.aznfilms.com - great service www.hkflix.com www.pokerindustries.com DVD is special ed. region 3 or you can get the region 0 on ebay hee hee. BTW-it should really be Hwasan-go as a opposed to Whasango with the W, closer to Korean pronuciation-ust a minor peeve =p

...that it kinda defeated the purpose of a film festival (to get the film reviewed and picked up for distribution) if the festival organizers sold tickets to fans with deep pockets and left the reviewers and buyers standing outside the theater looking at each other. Sounds like he has a point!

Vocano high rocks, its like a live action anime. As for the "naked Harry climbing up a glass box" image, i think it's from a cheech & chong movie.

I Spy and My Little Eye should come out the same weekend. That way theater marquees could be a bit entertaining. Like the time that they put the Blow teaser directly to the left of The Emperor's New Groove poster with the giant "ME" on it. Ahhh, I have no life...

Check out Combustable Campus Guardress, a very good anime which I'm pretty sure Volcano hHgh got many of their ideas from.

Last night, during the post-screening Q & A it became obvious that the filmakers didn't enjoy the word, "gimmic." Fair enough, but since they're not in my presence anymore, I believe that "My little Eye's" gimmic isn't exactly original, but that doesn't mean it's not a whole lot of fun. Unlike "The Blair Witch Project," MLE is methodically structured and paced. This was a wise movie, because we've already had the wool pulled over our eyes before, and shooting on video just isn't enough to fully suspend an audience's disbelief. We know this isn't real, so why bother? Admittedly, like every other "film" that was shot on anything less than high definition video (Including Dancer in the Dark) the sharp edges/low contrast ratio/30fps WILL EXPOSE and MAGNIFY any actor's weaknesses and MLE's young cast have many. There are times, however, (particualarily when the characters look directly into the camera) which work particularily well. Unfortunately, these days... to get noticed, a filmaker almost NEEDS a high concept/gimmic to get noticed, but fortunately for the audience, MLE's tightly woven/shocking script demands respect. The pacing builds to a rocking crescendo. The dialogue is crisp and funny, and the sex scene delivers. There are some gory scenes in this film that had some audience members screaming, and others... dry heaving. Once again, however, this filmaker's restraint surprised me. He "cut away" at precisely the right moments, building to a crescendo of carnage. I have to agree with Moriarity; "the skills" are there. With the success of other digital features, I'm fairly confident that many of you will have the opportunity to sit down and watch MLE. The gimmic isn't as fresh today as it was a few years ago, and (at times) the acting isn't "perfect," but if you can sit through the relatively uninvolving "first act," you'll definitely be in for a treat! Pack your bags...My Little Eye is a dirty, sexy, funny little movie with great pacing... and you're involved. If, like myself, you respected the Blair Witch experience, but believed that the concept could have been used to greater effect than you'll really enjoy "My Little Eye." Is this the last of the digital/reality TV movies? I doubt it... but if anybody wants to top the overall fun of this film, they're going to have a lot of work ahead of them.

Thanx for the DVD tips (Daewoo 5800, region 3 version of Volcano High). I saw Volcano High at AFM in Santa Monica last January and concur with the positive notices posted here. It's worth getting hold of. I understand that Matrix Reloaded will feature sequences with water effects similar to what Volcano High had. Should be cool. -- TG

Saw Volcano High at the Toronto Film Festival. Met the director, very cool and gracious guy. He's working on a 1930's gangland pic of a famous Korean gang leader, major action and martial arts to follow. BTW, Volcano High was edited at the festival - I suggest buying the import dvd as it's unedited.
