A couple of HIDDEN HORIZONS falling stars (Chris Brewster and Alisa Severina) assisted in a Target funeral this past weekend. The media ended up showing up to give a proper farewell to the fledgling franchise.
Here are a couple pics from the event.
THE GEORGE ROMERO MARATHON
length: 11hours 42mins
Along with Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper and John Carpenter, George Romero is one of the key faces from the silver age of horror’s Mount Rushmore. As oppose to the other genre directors who branched off into a lot of different tones and subjects, Romero seemed most pleased when working with both zombies and stories reminiscent of old EC comics. All his pieces are dark satires on human nature. So don’t let the gore throw you off from trying to see what deeper theme he’s digging at. He practically invented the modern zombie film all while completely working outside the studio system. This marathon gives you the best of the best of his work.
1. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)
2. CREEPSHOW (1982)
3. TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: episode DEVIL’S ADVOCATE (1985)
4. DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)
5. KNIGHTRIDERS (1981)
6. DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)
7. LAND OF THE DEAD (2005)
Note: Perfect to watch after you finish zombie marching with your friends.
THE INTRODUCTION INTO ARTHOUSE CINEMA MARATHON
length: 11hours 37mins
If you want to dive deeper than Hollywood filmmaking typically offers up, this is the marathon for you. This a little taster platter from a wide array of film movements that took place during the 20th century. You get to see everything from Italian Neorealism to Surrealism to Silent Movies to Full Blown Color Epics. This marathon gives you a little taste of everything. You will probably be surprised by how accessible some of these flicks are. There may be subs but the plots are often more minimal and easy to follow than the latest Captain America movie.
1. THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (dir. Dreyer) (1928)
2. RAN (dir. Kurosawa) (1985)
3. BICYCLE THIEVES (dir. De Sica) (1948)
5. PERSONA (dir. Bergman) (1966)
5. STALKER (dir. Tarkovsky) (1979)
6. THE HOLY MOUNTAIN (dir. Jodorowsky) (1973)
Note: You should get all pretentious. Get some fine wine and cheese and pretend you understand the torment of life better than everyone else. For maximum effect, your posse should probably be wearing all black.
THE NICOLAS WINDING REFN MARATHON
length: 11hours 29mins
HIDDEN HORIZONS is a huge fan of Nicolas Winding Refn. If you aren’t familiar with his work (or only know Drive) this marathon is beyond required viewing. These flicks take you right back to Refn’s early verite days with Bleeder (probably his most personal flick, starring his wife) and the Pusher Trilogy (probably his best series of movies). Also, Gambler might be tough to track down, it’s a doc on Refn going broke from making movies, but it’s mandatory viewing for understanding how much he’s risked to get where he’s at.
Note: His next movie dropping will be called The Neon Demon. Decorate your house accordingly.
