AICN COMICS: SDCC Report - Ambush Bug hosts Friday Horror Comics/Film Event!!!
Hey folks, Ambush Bug here, hip deep in chaos at the San Diego Comic Con. The festivities are about to begin, but I just wanted to toss out a reminder that I’ll be hosting a Horror Comics/Film panel Friday night, July 24, from 6:30-7:30 in Room 30 AB at the Convention Center.
This will be a rare look into horror comics and film. I’ll be talking horror with Marv Wolfman (creator of BLADE, writer of TOMB OF DRACULA, TEEN TITANS, & VIGILANTE), Kevin Grievoux (co-writer, actor in UNDERWORLD), Tim Seely (creator of HACK/SLASH, soon to be adapted into a film by Rogue pictures), Whitley Strieber (writer/creator of COMMUNION & THE NYE INCIDENTS), Todd Lincoln (director/producer of THE NYE INCIDENTS & writer/director of THE APPARITION at Dark Castle / Warner Bros), Jeff Katz (writer of FREDDY VS JASON VS ASH), Steven C. Miller (writer/director of AUTOMATION TRANSFUSION), and Ryan Schifrin (creator of SPOOKS). It’s all been coordinated and put together by Peter Katz and hosted by me!
I can’t wait for the event and if you like horror, you shouldn’t miss this panel. But if you do miss it, fret not. The panel will be videoed and posted on AICN in the near future (plus I believe it’ll be Twittered as well). And if you all have any questions you want me to ask the panel, tap them out in the Talkbacks and I’ll try to pass on a few of the best ones to the panel.
On my way to Premiere Night, so I gotta git, but I hope to see you all on Friday!

cliches, poor acting, and high percentage failure at the very thing it is supposed to accomplish.

...I dont wanna know

I'm sick of parody, I'm looking at you Zombieland.

I love that hokey cheesy fun movie. And that last shot, well it promised more dagnabbit!

from the Horror genre. Go catch a disease, or a leprechaun. In space.

Especially because of "cliches, poor acting, and high percentage of failure"? That could be tacked onto any genre of movie besides horror.

Obviously someone hasn't seen "Let the Right One In".

How would a 12 year old and kiddie looking vampire evade police detection after the final murders? By travelling on train together? Wouldn't they get busted within 96 hours no matter where they went, because they left a witness ALIVE at the murder scene? FAIL.

Who says they left him alive? We only saw him alive in the last shot, not what happens after that. <p> And besides, who says you have to take the movie literally. Maybe it was all just a fantasy by Oskar and Elie was a figment of his imagination...
July 23, 2009, 2:45 a.m. CST
90% crap, 10% good.
July 23, 2009, 6:56 a.m. CST
The old figment of the imagination line, the last refuge of a deluded fan boy who can't deal with their beloved "master piece" having major flaws.
July 23, 2009, 12:14 p.m. CST
...to Gore Shriek? It was my favorite horror comic growing up, which probably explains a lot.
July 23, 2009, 4:55 p.m. CST
That is one of the things the director implied. He mentions it in several interviews.

But their are cliches, bad acting and failure to maintain tone in all genres. And as Conti pointed out, there are a small percentage of these movies that stand out, with original concepts, sincere performances, and, yeah, even some good old atmosphere of dread. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for some of us, it's worth sifting through all the nuggets to find the occasional gem.
