I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (1978)

Starring Camille Keaton, Eron Tabor and Richard Pace

Written and directed by Meir Zarchi

Anchor Bay Entertainment

Is I Spit on Your Grave misogynist trash or feminist horror? That question has been asked ever since director Meir Zarchi put out Day of the Woman back in 1978. You likely know it by its more outrageous title, which distributors used when they re-released Day in 1980, minus the MPAA-induced cuts which bowdlerized much of the brutality from Zarchi’s rape-revenge story.

INSIDIOUS INTERVIEWS: “LET ME IN” DIRECTOR MATT REEVES

Posted in Interviews, Movies, Rue Morgue, Vampires with tags , , , , , on September 30, 2010 by darklordbunnykins

Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz star in Let Me In

The DLB interviewed Let Me In director Matt Reeves last night for Rue Morgue. Here’s an excerpt:

Abby’s vampire look is very animalistic. What were you trying to convey?

I thought of the movies that scared me as a kid, like The Exorcist, and I thought about the idea of evil taking as its host a girl is very scary. But the thing that really got me, given that the story is, I think, a kind of metaphor for adolescence and in particular [Let the Right One In novelist John Ajvide Lindqvist’s painful adolescence, I wanted to do a vampire transformation that was all about adolescence gone wrong. And the idea was that you lose your baby teeth and all your other teeth start to come in, you need braces. And her teeth aren’t fangs, they’re just teeth that are layer upon layer of teeth that are just out of control. Her skin actually has acne gone bad. And I thought the idea of vampirism being a transformation was a good metaphor for what it feels like to enter adolescence. Hormones start to rage in your body, and it feels like your body itself is literally out of control. You get pimples and your teeth are messed up. You feel like this side is coming out which is truly ugly. That was the attempt, to make her a vampire in that sort of mould.

The DLB received his copy of the new Rue Morgue in the mail yesterday, and although he only has one tiny movie review in this issue (much of my efforts are going into my RM blog here: http://rue-morgue.com/blog/archives/author/sean/) , that’s no reason not to pick it up, especially when you’ve got all this tasty stuff to keep you entertained and so many nasty pix to freak out your fellow subway riders.
