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.
When you hear the name ‘Cannes’ you think of the film festival. And when you think of that festival you probably picture lots of celebs shamelessly promoting their latest films as the hungry press busily takes notes and photos.
Having to do a spoiler free review of Secret Cinema’s take on 28 Days Later isn’t easy. Mainly because I want to recall of the amazing individual moments that occurred, without giving too much away.
