I was commenting to a friend that the Exhumed Films 24-Hour Horror-thon 2011 is the premiere film-going experience in the world. After much deliberation I stand by that. Can you name any other 24-hour film[…]
There is energy behind The Frighteners. It’s the fun, gleeful energy brought by a director who grew up loving to make movies with his friends. And it’s an energy that is not diminished by the structure of Hollywood, due to producers who also have that same gleam in their eyes.
Fifties Hollywood churned out just as much studio dreck as the Hollywood of today. But through the filter of a couple decades most of that has been forgotten. Problem Girls is one of those films that shouldn’t have made it through. But somehow it appeared on TCM.
