You do know that the 2010 Nevermore Film Festival is this weekend, right? Lord, but it’s snuck up on me. I am not at all ready, but I am going to get ready tonight when Pants Wilder and I sit down with a schedule and talk interesting movies.

And let me assure you, there are a lot of interesting movies.

On my extended short list:

  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
  • AM1200, which has Ray Wise (aka Leland Fucking Palmer)
  • Bonnie and Clyde vs. Dracula, which would be on the bubble were it not for Drac
  • Dawning, which looks fantastic
  • Evil Angel, though I’m not really sure what it has to say about gender
  • The shorts collection Four Minutes ‘Til Sunrise is required.
  • Re-Animator, which is honest to (old) gods one of the best Lovecraft adaptations on film.
  • Strigoi, for that Soviet Bloc vampire flavor.
  • The shorts collection They’re Coming To Get You, Barbara!, which remains one of my favorite shorts titles evar.
  • Witchboard, which is also kind of on the bubble but does remind me of some great times in junior high so, y’know, yeah. I’m there.

Like I said, that’s the extended list. I’m going to watch most of those, though, so if you’re in the area and see something on the list that you’d like to watch with someone virtually guaranteed to be more nelly than you, give me a shout.
