Ever since they featured the character in the cheesy special FX fest THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN I knew they’d see the potential in a feature adaptation of the Classic Oscar Wilde novel. And now it has come to pass…. next week I fill fortell the end of times… ;0)
– the news that every filmmaker fears… that life has imitated art – or rather that some eejit has decided that instead of rustling up a brain cell to work out that the film is fantasy and that it portrays acts that are morally wrong, he’s decided to have a go at it himself. In this case a spot of extra curricular grave digging in the name of loving the dead, as inspired by Alan’s film I’LL BURY YOU TOMORROW.
Ironic though that rather than be as horrified as Alan was that his film had inspired such an act of deviance, that my first thoughts were how the two brothers, and their friend, sound like a couple of retards who probably couldn’t even be bothered to try and recreate further scenes by much more accomplished films such as NEKROMANTIC and BUIO OMEGA. So who is more morally culpable here? ;0)

There are 3 days left to watch this 6 minute clip – before the link expires!
Del Toro says of his creations “These guys are nasty, brutal and as romantic as colon cancer!” when comparisons to TWILIGHT and TRUE BLOOD are touted. The style is described as “Vampires meets CSI” as the show is influenced by his viewing of THE WIRE.
