Did anyone catch the film Fever directed by Alex Winter? Yes, that Alex Winter. It stars Henry Thomas from ET. It's really impressive for a small budget film. This is actually one of the best, more surreal psychological horror films I've seen lately. It builds in a quiet, dark mood that unsettles from first frame to last. I caught it about 2 months ago at the Screening Room in a theatre about the size of my living room. It was well worth it, too. Mr. Winter was even there to introduce his film, short winded as his "introduction" was. I thought I'd pass on the good word since the DVD comes out this month. Definitely check it out.

I have this on order, as I have heard that it is rather interesting and that the nightmare sequences are quite inspired. I'm not too sure what the exact plot or premise is so sadly it's a blind purchase for me. With the lack of mainstream interest in it I am pretty certain that it will get limited distribution and I dodn't particularly want to trapse all over Hell's Acres to find it. I do hope it is worth the price of admission.

I won't tell you what it's about, but I will tell you it's worth having. The sets and mood are just awesome.

I saw this film a couple of years ago at the midnight madness section of the Toronto fest, with Winter and Thomas present.
There is a scene that really sent a chill up the collective spine of those present. Worth seein'.

And on the topic of Alex Winter movies, where the hell is his funny ass film FREAKED on DVD? It is a must. I just watched it again the other day and have to say that it's even funnier now that I'm a bit older.
