The program for this year's Sydney Underground Film Fest is off the chain. Their hottest lineup yet? Yeah, I think so. In 11 years SUFF has gone from the little fest that could to Sydney's premier genre event. No disrespect intended to SFF, ANOH or Monster Fest, but SUFF is where it's at baby.
I've picked up tickets to five films: Chilean "extreme" shocker TRAUMA (which is being compared to the infamous A SERBIAN FILM); the latest horror hit out of France, REVENGE; Arty German euro-horror throwback LUZ; the insane looking PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH (scored by Fabio Frizzi!); and most exciting of all, Panos Cosmatos' reportedly bonkers Nic Cage starrer, MANDY (with added bonus of the disgustingly delicious combo of ice cream and beer!).
If I had the goddamned time, I'd be going to Forzani/Cattet's Euro-crime + Spaghetti Western mashup LET THE CORPSES TAN, and Jim Hosking's GREASY STRANGLER followup AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN too! I WANT MORE LIFE, FUCKER!
