Two more days to go in the blogathon!
And wow. I cannot overstate how happy I am with today’s crop of submissions. These folks really went above and beyond. Give them some love!
- First, the delightful/talented/lovely Christianne from Krell Laboratories penned “Once Too Often to the Weller,” evaluating RoboCop 3 (which does not star Peter Weller) and Leviathan (which does). She demonstrates a Kim Newman-esque knowledge and intuitive understanding of horror/sci-fi history as well as a great sense of humor, and this post is just a pleasure to read.
- Next, the reliably great The Mike from From Midnight, With Love does a “Modern Horror vs. Not-So-Modern Horror Double Feature” five times over! It’s got love for House of the Devil, a hilarious graph, snakes, gators, and more. In other words, everything that’s beautiful in life.
- This one was a very pleasant surprise: Charles Reece from Amoeblog sent us a full-blown, well-researched, smart-as-hell essay called “Mighty White of You: Juxtaposing Cowboys & Aliens and Attack the Block.” Race, sci-fi, Hitchcock, Marx, Richard Dyer… it’s all here. Absolutely must-read.
- Finally, Colin from Against The Hype gives us one last poignant, funny image juxtaposition entitled “F***ed: Actress Peak Performance Barometer?” Anything that contains both Heavenly Creatures and Safe makes me very, very happy.
If you have anything else to submit, please do so by tomorrow evening! (Stragglers will get linked to, even if it’s after the wrap-up post, so don’t fret.) I hope you’re having as much fun as we are. Now, on to the last day…
