Monster of the Day #1555

View post on

The Rev suggested Helldriver, this Gonzo Crazy Japanese Zombie film. Which, I’ll be the first to admit, just isn’t my bag, man. I’m rather more narrative-driven. That’s OK, though, the Fests aren’t there to cater to me, at least all the time. I showed Magnificent Obsession earlier in the day, which I’m sure many found insufferable, so I can’t complain. If you like films that pile crazy on crazy on crazy every nano-second, though, check this out.

    I’m not sure what I’m looking at, some sort of zombie with a half-dozen hands holding M-16s???

    A black rifle widow?

    The New York Times decided to kick off their “unbiased look at gun control” series with an illistration of a typical NRA member.

    Only 8 rifles? She better have some firearms stashed away if she wants to stay in good standing.

  • You don’t want to know where she’s stashed them…..

  • bgbear_rnh

    OK, just watched the trailer and that is enough for me.

    Hah! I wonder what it’s like during a magazine change. To quote my dad, ‘Busier than a one armed paper hanger.”

    EWwww…well, stainless is resistant to rust…

  • Eric Hinkle

    That image looks too subtle for the Times.

  • The Rev.

    That’s pretty much exactly what your looking at. Also note the baby arms on either side of its mouth, holding silverware. That it uses to slap the heroine with.

    Ken’s acting like there isn’t a narrative in this movie. Admittedly, there’s not much outside of “we have to kill the queen zombie,” but it at least has more than Tokyo Gore Police by the same group. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe not quite as much as The Machine Girl. Although, it occurs to me the opening scene of that might be good to show at a future fest. It has at least as much story as most of the short films in that Japanese anthology we watched that same weekend.

    And really, I think most would prefer something like this to the kind of thing you show when you’re in charge, Mr. Ken “Lonely Lady” Begg.
