I wanted to give a quick plug here for a cool little project I stumbled upon on a friend's recommendation.|
A group of knitting pattern designers are putting together their second annual monthly Super Sock Scare Fest.
The basic rundown is that every month a new horror themed sock pattern is released. Check out this link to one of last year's projects (scroll down for pic):
Blood spattered "Screaming Girl" lace socks.
The first pattern for this year has already been released. It's a "Dial M for Murder" themed entry. You have to sign up for the club on the knitting site Ravelry to participate (Just search for "super sock scare fest", join, and then PM your email addy to the group moderator). Participation is free, but patterns may not be shared outside of the group, in case the designers wish to publish them in the future. I believe new members will be accepted until the beginning of September.

I'm Tina. I have somehow just heard about Feast and had a question for those of you who've seen it.
I was talking to a friend about the atrocity of Rob Zombie's butchering of Halloween and the horrendous, long and unnecessary rape scene that made me turn it off (well, fast forward to Ken Foree's scene and then turn it off.) He recommended Feast saying there was one rape scene but that it had comic intent and that it wouldn't be the same sort of thing. I'm exceptionally weary.
I can put up with a lot for my love of horror but there are definite lines and gratuitous, unrepenting/unpunished rape is right at the top of the shit list.
I wonder what you guys think? What were yer impressions of Feast? Is it worth a look?
Secondly, if you feel differently about the Halloween remake(s) I am up for debate.

"Ax Wound is my favorite critical horror magazine. The articles are intelligent, funny, insightful, and incredibly entertaining. These girls know their gore, and they make you want to re-watch all your favorite films with a whole new perspective. I love it and highly recommend it to any horror fan."
- Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever)

|Lars Von Trier's "Antichrist"
||[Mar. 3rd, 2010|06:37 pm]
Hey all. I'm working on a review of Lars Von Trier's film "Antichrist". In particular, I'm examining the widespread accusations of misogyny which were leveled against Von Trier, after the film's debut last year at Cannes. |
I'd be interested to hear from any of you AW readers who have seen "Antichrist". Did you find the film misogynistic? If you're also familiar with other Von Trier films (Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Breaking the Waves...) did that influence how you interpreted "Antichrist"?
If you'd rather, feel free to send me a private message through LJ, rather than replying here. In fact, that might be a better thing to do, in an effort to avoid spoilers for those who have not see this film.
