My Review Of “Antichrist” (2009)

A quick note: This is not a film about the figure head of an evil leader who comes to power and leads us all into hell based on Christian mythology. The use of Antichrist here is more symbolic. Used as a metaphor for the dark chaos that seeds and grows in human nature. At least that is how the film matched against the title for my experience of seeing Lars Von Trier’s “Antichrist”.

“Antichrist” follows the emotional and physical relationship of a couple after the tragic loss of their toddler son. Directed by Lars Von Trier and starring William Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg this film is a true film noir with perfect moments of artist stylization. There is a symphonic build within this dark psychological thriller that is both hypnotic and disturbing. The movie begins much like a classical opus so do not go into this film expecting an ‘edge of your seat’ intensity that is associated with most psychological thrillers in modern cinema. This is not that kind of film. Instead go into this movie with the same approach you would take toward a trip to the symphony or opera. Trust me if you allow yourself to experience this film from start to finish – uninterrupted-you will not be disappointed. I promise that.

The direction taken in “Antichrist” is a very European and controversial approach. This film is mostly intended for a Danish audience with little regard to western sensitivities. That makes this movie a film apart from anything out there today. It is graphic and emotional. At times the story seems slow but with purpose. It builds with moments of twisted visionary climax before slowly drifting back into deep melodrama. The images fill the screen and your mind with explosive affect. The movie is told in Chapters, starting with the Prologue followed by four Chapters then ending with the Epilogue.

The film is a journey of human nature through emotional and spiritual chaos that starts with a tragic catalyst then spirals into a near demonic frenzy of psychotic collapse. A movie that has changed my whole perspective of cinema and genre film making. I swear that if you refrain from wanting to get out of this movie during the first 45 minutes allowing yourself to fully experience the story both visually and emotionally you too will feel changed somewhat. This is a dark thriller that is beautiful and sinister in every detail and frame. Both graphic and groundbreaking. “Antichrist” is not your average noir nor is it your typical thriller story. I consider this to be one of the best films of the last 20 years of world cinema. A must watch for any fan of genre filmmaking whether noir, horror, or drama.

Survivors: The Morningstar Strain By Z.A. Recht

Book Worth Reading:

Get Ready For A 3D Flick With A Real Bite!

Are you ready for a little more bite in your 3D experience. No I don’t mean Piranha's or Vamps. This time we are talking about something a little different than your average creature feature. Check out the poster for new horror flick with a killer since of humor. “Chompers 3D” is coming our way! Directed by Jesse Blanchard. Read about this new flick below.

The Creature – Chompers is a shape-changing predator that disguises itself as something round waiting for a victim to slide an appendage inside its mouth. In the wild, it took the shape of hollowed out logs and stumps. In suburbia, its found trashcans, cookies jars, coffee cups, & so much more.
The Hero – Brooklyn is smart, but that’s about all she has going for her. Her skin is not good, she’s overweight, and she has glasses as thick as coke bottles. but she is about the only person that will survive the movie and it’s not because of her luck.
The Puppets – The people are real. The creature is real. The blood and guts are real. They just happen to be puppets. We’re using puppets because this is the best tool to tell the story. We’ll be able to pack so much more into the movie with this method. It will create a better environment to hide the monster in. We will not have any restriction on what happens to the main characters. And we can build exactly the characters and the world we have in mind. We’re using puppets to make a better movie.
3D – Writer/Director Jesse Blanchard has designed and patented his own 3D camera system. His first stereoscopic 3D short Shine took home the Best of Festival Award from the Los Angeles 3D Film Festival. More info of the camera system at
Jesse Blanchard – Writer/Director Blanchard has made over 50 shorts before stepping into his first feature. Those shorts have been picked up by George Romero and Dimension Films, praised by Neil LaBute (Nurse Betty, The Wicker Man) and Drew Barrymore (E.T. Never Been Kissed), and screened around the world at festivals from New York to Cannes.
Says Blanchard “The puppets are no more a gimmick than Kermit the Frog. These are real people that are going through one hell-of-a-time with Chompers…they just happen to be puppets. Furthermore, most of my favorite horror films – aliens, dead alive, evil dead, the thing, etc – use puppets. This just takes it one step further.”

Details & Trailer On “Exhibit X”

( THE SOURCE OF THIS STORY HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED and the original press release appears to have been removed )
NEW YORK, NY – May 20, 2012 / By Annonymous ~ Angela Wilaneaux, 22, a model who has reportedly been living in Paris and New York, was arrested in Paris, France and charged with the murders of 51 people stemming from an incident occurring on January 15, 2009. In her arraignment hearing this morning she has plead not guilty. However, according to several eyewitness testimony, Wilaneaux, one of 52 people who attended a party 3 years ago, at the Edgar Bradford home in Los Angeles, California, was “Covered with blood and growling as she fled the scene in her red luxury sports car.” She was the only person in attendance at the party who was not found dead at the scene by local authorities.
The details surrounding this horrific incident, based on interviews, was that Sean T. Marques, a promoter for Firestarter Vodka,LLC wanted to hold a promotional event inside a so-called “Haunted House” but some time during the party things apparently went “horribly wrong and Marques ignored the locals warnings” to “Stay out of the Bradford home.” Neighbors familiar with the Edgar Bradford house also stated they had candidly warned Marques about the dangers of holding a party there after they noticed he was setting up signage and banners in the front yard.
The Bradford home is considered by many paranormal followers to be one of the most haunted houses in the world. The home is the place of the 1930′s Bradford incident that was never explained and has been a mystery to locals ever since. Neighbors claimed they had expressed concerns to Marques, about numerous paranormal sightings, violent hauntings and deaths that have taken place at the home over the last 70 years but “He didn’t seem to care. I think he thought it was some kind of joke,” said a neighbor.
Private video footage taken by a young man who was killed at the Bradford Home during the incident, was found in the back yard by local authorities who claim the footage is “Pivotal Evidence” and “almost guarantees a conviction” in the case. Regardless, the evidence could be tainted because somehow, against the demands of the mother who lost her son, the film is being released and sold as the film “EXHIBIT X.” Even though it could be the most damaging evidence in the case against Wilaneaux, her defense is trying to spin the recordings in another direction. They are using the theory that the defendant was possessed by the ghost of Edgar Bradford, and they claim that the footage proves it. The case has a dozen critical pieces of evidence including paranormal activity, which is the first of it’s kind to be allowed and presented to a jury in US history.
The model’s family has denied repeated requests for interviews by media. Neighbors complained to the police on the day of the party of shrill screams coming from the house just before it started to burn.
A longtime Los Angeles resident, Susan Charge-Antonelli, who lives on the same block as the Bradford house told reporters,” I was very concerned for them, especially all the girls, because everyone around here knows that place is creepy. I just had a bad feeling something was going to happen… and it did.” She also told reporters that one of the people was “burning and screaming in the street.” Charge-Antonelli has refused any further interviews and she appeared visibly shaken by the recent trauma she had witnessed.
Other neighbors reported that they heard massive screams of terror coming from the house shortly after 4pm. The fire department and paramedics arrived to find the bodies of 51 people in a gruesome scene. According to one Fire Department first responder, who asked to remain anonymous, “The people were just slashed to pieces, all burned, I am absolutely sickened by whoever could do such a thing.”
Prosecutors allege that after Wlinaneaux killed all 51 people she then attempted to burn down the house but firefighters were able to put out the fire before it destroyed other homes, thanks to 911 calls by neighbors.
Wilnaneaux remains free on $10 million bail awaiting a new trial date.”

This is the story that SHOULD have been told…
While shooting the sequel to The Whore, director Reinert Kiil and his director of photography join forces in an effort to make the ugliest and most grotesque film ever made. During production outside Kvam in Bergen, the crew and actors notice that there is something weird and strange going on when friends and colleagues begin to die in brutal ways. The question is whether it is the Whore who has come to life looking for revenge or whether it’s actually the director who gets his dream come true about making the most horrible movie ever.

First Word On “L’ Autre Monde/The Other World”

Fangoria posted the first image from Richard Stanley’s “L’ Autre Monde”. The film is set to explore those places on earth where our world overlaps that of the paranormal realm. Here is what he told Fangoria about this project:

“After 22 years of study, I plan to bring my extensive knowledge of the area to bear on this feature-length documentary, which Karim Hussain and myself plan to shoot in the areas of the Aude and the Ariege this summer. This project will examine some of the curious belief systems of the region’s inhabitants, where half-remembered legends of faeries and the ‘encantada’ blur into modern-day UFO lore. I intend to interview a cross-section of the local populace, ranging from individuals who claim to have had real-life experiences they can’t readily explain or quantify to town mayors, civic dignitaries and government employees who have been trying to suppress what they view as a virulent and potentially dangerous strain of mass hysteria.”

I can't wait for this to come out. I love documentary stuff, especially when dealing with lore and mythologies from around the world. There is so much out there still waiting to be explored as well as so much of our past that needs to be rewritten in order to be viewed as more truthful based on the knowledge we now know about our world and universe. The paranormal is so much more than just fear and superstition. Read the rest of the story here!
