Time, time time, see what's become of me...

I had intended on a lengthy post; going into some detail on Halloween double-features, as well as a rant on NIGHT STINKER and how Spotnitz and crew chose to exploit the wrong franchise (if they had taken inspiration from THE NORLISS TAPES - Dan Curtis' own failed television pilot featuring a Kolchak-like reporter without Darrin McGavin in the lead - then the current show would probably not suck as hard as it does)... but most of that will have to wait a while.

I may have a job on a lo-budget feature shooting in the area for the next few weeks. Nothing is quite definite - the deal is about 75% there, but nothing's been signed as of yet - but if we come to a meeting of the minds, I'll probably not update for a couple of weeks or so.

In other words, no big changes.

You'll notice that I've added a blogroll on the sidebar - and have added a few more blogs of interest.

A big shout-out to Dennis of Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule - he's finally started to post the results of his summer film quiz and has had some nice things to say about my contributions.

As to those Halloween double features... to kick things off, I offer up the combination of:

Lifeforce (1985) and Dreamcatcher (2003)

They're both fairly light films, to start; they're both a lot of fun and they both were reviled at the time of their release, but have gained cult followings.

More later...
