PHILADELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL
The annual Philadephia Film Festival has been an increasingly exciting event for genre fans (Fango first caught GINGER SNAPS and HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS there, among other titles), and this year?s fest, running April 3-17, promises to be the best yet in terms of fright fare. Among the movies running in the Danger After Dark series are the world premieres of Robert Parigi?s psychosexual chiller LOVE OBJECT and J.T. (SOFT FOR DIGGING) Petty?s MIMIC: SENTINEL, and the North American premieres of Brian Yuzna?s BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR, Jorge Alguin?s ETERNAL BLOOD (a.k.a. SANGRE ETERNA, to hit video on the Fango label this June), Ryuhei (VERSUS) Kitamura?s supernatural samurai film ARAGAMI, Takashi Miike?s true-crime/gangster film GRAVEYARD OF HONOR and Paco Plaza?s Ramsey Campbell adaptation SECOND NAME. Also on the bill are Hideo Nakata?s DARK WATER, the Pang Brothers? THE EYE, the Spanish docudrama ARO TOLBUKHIN: IN THE MIND OF A KILLER, co-directed by Agust?(IN A GLASS CAGE) Villaronga, and SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE, a brutal thriller from the South Korean makers of JSA: JOINT SECURITY AREA.
