Disseminating The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh, DVD Movie Review

5 May

One unique gem for fans of the classic ghost story formula to watch is The Last Will and Testament of Rosaland Leigh. This movie originally released back in 2012 and it is one I frequently watch because it is very poetic, very lucid. It’s produced, written and directed by Rodrigo Gudiño, the founder of Rue Morgue Magazine. To liken it to any other films might give too much of this movie way and ruin the beauty of this film.

When Leon (Aaron Poole) has to settle the affairs of his deceased mother’s home, the horrors he experiences are not his own making. He’s just one of the few main actors who have to carefully navigate through unfortunate memories. As for what they represent, that’s left up to the viewer to decide.

[Fan Expo Vancouver] Rue Morgue Magazine’s Festival of Fear Spotlighted!

Rue Morgue Magazine’s Festival of Fear, Westcoast edition is set to take up most of the stage at Fan Expo Vancouver 2014. Last year saw the première of Death Do Us Part, a horror film that is very similar to A Little Bit Zombie in theme — where wedding bell jitters can spell doom.

This year’s spotlight will be on WolfCop, a tale of a police officer who ends up with lycanthropy. And just which kind of masters he can end up serving will become the big question of the day. This movie has the potential to make it big in the cult film market, and the filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions along with other guests to fuel the fire for what can be a wonderfully horrific weekend.

Bruce Campbell hits Fan Expo Vancouver!

16 Dec

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Bruce Campbell

Groovy will be one of the many words used by fans to describe their feelings about the first guest announcement from Fan Expo Vancouver. Seminal actor, Bruce Campbell is a fan favourite in the convention scene and he should be appearing for all three days, giving some fans more than just a little sugar.

Although he does not attend many shows these days, to see Brisco County Jr. return to the Pacific Northwest will no doubt be wonderfully fun! I vividly recall discovering this talented man through this television series than with Evil Dead. I even caught a very little known film, Goldrush: A Real Life Alaskan Adventure where he was remarkably docile. He was not the atypical smarmy character that he’s well-known for in his movie roles.

And to go see him again will be a pleasure. I attended a book signing from over a decade ago in Vancouver where I had a chance to meet the man. The crowds were not as big back then, but at Fan Expo Vancouver, people should be warned that lineups will no doubt be huge, if not bigger than last year.

With this show now going into its third year and that Rue Morgue Magazine may be involved with bringing Campbell to Vancouver under its mini show, Festival of Fear, this actor will no doubt be a busy man during this show. Maybe during his panel, he can definitively answer if Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires will happen or not.

But maybe the bigger talk that’s going on is in addressing how the Evil Dead reboot is going to continue. The sequence after this new film’s end credits revealed that the original Ash is kicking somewhere around in that crazy multi-verse. One explanation has been offered, but maybe during Fan Expo, Campbell may shed more light about what’s to come next.
