Strigoi!

Hey gang! If, like myself, you simply can't wait until October 15 for DEDfest: Deadmonton's Horror Fest, check out some of the cool new genre flicks at this week's Edmonton International Film Fest.


Tonight, we have a quirky vampire comedy from England called Strigoi. From the EIFF website:

"STRIGOI is a Vampire movie that defies categorization. Shedding a fantastic light on a post-communist Romanian village, the film introduces us to an ancient myth: Strigoi – the souls that rise again after death to seek justice if they’ve been wronged, their appetites intensified by a hunger for blood. Vlad (Catalin Paraschiv) investigates a mysterious death in his grandfather’s village that raises questions about land ownership in the community. The trail points to ex-communist bully, Constantin Tirescu, and his wife. But when Vlad confronts them, he discovers that the richest landowners in the village have become real bloodsuckers!"


Strigoi won the gold medal for Best Independent Feature at this year's Toronto After Dark Film Fest, so don't miss it's Edmonton premiere! Also, director Faye Jackson will be in attendance!

The Iggy Dead




Why am I posting an old Iggy Pop video from the '80's? It was brought to my attention my the Lascivious Lisa Ladouceur on Rue Morgue Radio that the video was directed by none other than Sam Raimi. You can definitely see his touch here. Plus, Iggy is cool as shit (although I'm not sure about the chainmail tank top).

"What's wrong with chainmail?"
