dead creatures sounds really interesting, and the paralells that moriarty draws make it sound like a docu-soap based on zombies, cool.

Thanks for such a nice piece. I am glad you guys are able to go to these festivals and let us know what is out there so I can buy it on DVD from Europe. I don't have the time or the money to go to festivals all over the world, but I sure am glad someones covering it. I recently saw the first "Dead or Alive" and have to say from beginning to end it was one of the coolest movies I have ever seen with an ending that pretty much gave a collective heart attack to our stunned audience. I also recently bought "Audition" on DVD and was genuinely creeped out by it. Although the beginning may be too slow for most American horror fans, I think fans of good psychological suspense will love this. My new favorite movie was one that played that festival last year and is called I.K.U. Asci-fi porno that puts to shame most of the Hollywood movies this year with it's stylishly hot sex scenes and amazingly cool soundtrack, this riff on Blade Runner makes me rethink what I want from a movie entirely. We desperately need an uncut DVD version of this in America and the beautifully packaged 2 cd +1 cd rom soundtrack set. Now that I think about it, isn't it about time for AICN PORN reviews?

I envy you! I managed to see DOA (1) and Audition in last years London film festival and they blew me away. I had heard positive things prior but they were way better than expected and very original. In both case the audience was left a bit shell shocked. DOA 2 sounds as good especially from your reaction and the review over at www.midnighteye.com hopefully it will play in some festival since distribution of his films in Europe either Cinema or Video is almost zilch. (For anyone interested in his films: Audition is easily found on DVD with subtitles as well as City of Lost Souls, theres also Fudoh on vhs - an earlier film. Most of his other exellent films can be ordered from Japan on DVD but they SADLY have no subtitles.)

Very nice report, sir. Now, how about addressing what happened to those wonderful 90's lists you were doing? I was so looking forward to reading them all.
