THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH METAL AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HALLOWEEN, HORROR, AND BEING AWESOME

Please allow me to digress from our regular subject matter to discuss another one of my great loves – namely, horror movies.

I saw Hatchet at the Tribeca Film Festival a few years ago. I was more than a little surprised to see Dee Snider sitting in the audience. As it turns out, Adam Green, the writer/director of Hatchet, is a huge Twisted Sister fan. He gave a whole speech before the screening, recounting a story of meeting Dee at a signing when he was a kid, and telling Dee how his music changed his life and inspired him to follow his dreams.  Years later, when he finally got to make his first movie, he reached out to Dee and invited him to the screening – and Dee showed up! How cool is that? And BONUS: Hatchet is an awesome movie. It’s a funny as fuck, gory as hell homage to the golden age of slasher flicks – namely, the 80s. Awesome movie.

Now Adam Green has directed the below “infomercial” with his friend, Paul Solet, who directed Grace – which is easily one of the most unsettling films I’ve seen in years. It’s increasingly rare to see original horror these days, let alone original horror that is genuinely disturbing – but Grace is that gem of a movie. No wonder it got a very limited theatrical run and is now on DVD. Maybe if it had been Saw XXI or whatever, the suits would have given a fuck.

ANYWAY, I love these dudes’ work, and I love this video. And knowing that many of you share my love of all things gore, I thought it was worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
