Superman vs Hatchet

This week, we kneel before Zod and Hatchet III star Danielle Harris, who describes her Pussy Posse and explains what it’s like to have hoses filled with fake blood aimed at your face. Plus, Geoff faces an Interrogation Review of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, and Scott talks with a budding filmmaker who’ll learn this weekend if his new project gets funding or not. For more from us on a daily basis, follow Danielle Harris (@halloweengal), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on the Twitter.

A few years ago Jim Mickle directed and co-wrote a film with actor Nick Damici about a zombie outbreak in a Manhattan neighborhood where the disease originated from plague-carrying rats. That film was Mulberry Street and is still one of the better pictures part of the After Dark film series – and by better I mean actually worth your time to watch. It does well to focus primarily on the characters for the better half of the first forty minutes so that when the outbreak spreads and hits the neighborhood full-on we actually give a damn and feel like there’s something to be lost when a character bites the dust.

It was this commitment to character development that had me excited for the second film from Mickle and Damaci about a vampire takeover in a post-apocalyptic landscape of the central United States – titled Stake Land. Damaci (lead actor as he also was in Mulberry Street) is a vampire killer/drifter known by his best friends as Mister and has been traveling North through heavy vampire and Christian occult terrain to a supposed refuge in what we know in the present as Canada – because vampires hate national healthcare. Along the way he passes by a family being mauled by a vampire and is asked to promise the parents of a young man that their surviving son will be looked after and brought to safety. Mister, not being one for sentiment agrees, but with the condition that the boy will carry his own weight and be a helping hand. If he becomes a burden, he’s on his own.



Watching films at Fantastic Fest can be described in a lot of ways. For me personally, I generally walk into every single film playing there with no idea what it’s about, or even what language it’s in. This is, of course, completely untrue when it comes to Hatchet 2, which is exactly why I skipped the Fantastic Fest screening to watch Rubber instead. Thankfully there was an LA screening and interviews set up, so I flew back to town to rock and roll with that. Now you’re lucky enough to hear my thoughts on it.
