"Well, you gotta start somewhere, kid."
No, really. You do have to start somewhere. Ask yourself a simple question. "What five movies would I like to have if I were stranded for 20 hours on a deserted island with only a large bag of popcorn, a big screen tv and a dvd/blu-ray player?" Be honest, here. I really like a good movie with a semi-retired taxi-driver who desperately wishes he had pursued a career in acting as much as the next film-geek, but if I am going to be simply hanging out at the desert island entertainment center, I want horror movies. I want a pretty girl pursued by something horrible. I want a dark being from the distant past. I want to see a man battling his own inner monster. I want a scientist mutating into a slimy thing. I want a house of mystery and a door to terror. I want blood, gore, shivers, jumps, screams, laughs, and jolts! Dammit, I want to be ENTERTAINED!
I am not saying you have to like genre movies to follow this blog, but I am betting you'll get a bit more out of it if you do. Because on this desert island, you don't have a dvd/blu-ray player, or a big screen tv. You have a goup of willing people who love the idea of getting some fake blood in their hair, and trying something a little crazy, and you are going to make those five movies! Well, okay, I am going to make those five movies. In fact, I am going to make THOSE five movies! I am going to make them, and YOU are going to get to see how I do it!
How's THAT for entertainment?
Now, get outta here, kid. I got work to do!
