I decided to catch an afternoon screening ‘All the Creatures Were Stirring’ in Cannes, knowing that Jinga Films always supply some of the best films at FrightFest. What better chance to narrow down any potential clashes at the August bank holiday festival?
Finding myself in a sequel to my fortuitous escapade last year, I was lucky to attend the 71st Cannes Film Festival on behalf of Love Horror.
At Cannes this year, as they are every other, Troma were in attendance, bringing monsters and promises of excessive bodily fluids to the streets and this year onto the screen in the form of this insane sequel to the corny Nuke em franchise.
I consumed Takashi Miike’s live action adaptation of Hiroaki Samura’s manga, ‘Blade Of The Immortal’ during a packed screening in Cannes. Miike enjoys one of the largest cult followings for his extreme moviemaking. Nobody has been generating the kind of daring, original and larger-than-life cinema for as long as, in such frequency.
