I am a big fan of horror movies, and thanks to my work with CCD I have started to reap the benefits of being a part of the "press". I was recently approved for press credentials for the upcoming Big Apple Comic Con and New York Comic Con, and I was also invited to a press conference involving scream queen and CCD fave Danielle Harris. Danielle, of the original Halloween 4 & 5 and Rob Zombies Halloween 1 & 2. was recently at Planet Hollywood to donate a prop hatchet from the set of her new movie, Hatchet 2. This was CCD's first press conference (yeah son) and was really cool. Take a look at some of the video we shot (the lighting in the place was terrible, so the picture is a bit dark... but the audio is great!)
Very cool stuff. We had a chance to sit down and interview Danielle for about 30 min (coverage of that will come to CCD early next week). one of the topics was Hatchet 2 being release UNCUT AND UNCENSORED in AMC theaters across the country. This is the first time in over 25 years (almost since the beginning of ratings) that a film has been widely released in mainstream theaters sans a rating, completely uncensored. This is not NC-17 (which is bad, but still rated)... this is raw dog horror on the big screen son!!! Adam Green's maniac killer Victor Crowley is leading charge to a new way of cinema, and if Hatchet 2 is successful then I am sure it will lead to many more widely released uncut versions of films... which we here at CCD are fully supportive of.
So how can you help? Get out to an AMC and buy some tickets to see Hatchet 2!!! It opens today, and if it's anything like Adam Green's first classic movie, then you are in for a treat. Being that it's October, lets start getting in the Halloween mood now. I am attending the 10:35 show tonight at Time Square AMC, and Danielle Harris will be there in person to intro the film. Come join us... go out and support INDEPENDENT UNCENSORED HORROR tonight!!! I'll see you guys there.
