I’ll Do More Than Bury You Tomorrow!

I received a very strange email the other day from an old friend – US Indie Horror Filmmaker Alan Rowe Kelly (I’LL BURY YOU TOMORROW) sent me this email:

Subject: Good God – READ THIS NOW!!!!!

Yikes!

– 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)

  1. I think the weirdos are there with or without movies, but at least movies can stand for good, healthy values. If a movie contain a scene with e.g. a rape it should be clear that it is not a good thing to do. Like Donald Duck most of the times has to pay for being mean.

    But this on the other hand suggests that we all have “normal” minds.

  2. Hi Desiree,

    long time no speak.

    Almost certainly the crazies will be around even without such films and I do agree that a good moral comeuppance is recommended for a good pay-off – but not for all exploitation films. The genre should be responsible, but often their fun is in the irreverence for normal social conventions.

    But as for ‘normal minds’ – look at the amount of crazies who were affected by films like THE MATRIX. And those that are obsessed by films like THE SOUND OF MUSIC. How do we define ‘normal’ when film is such a powerful medium and some people are far more suggestible than others and we can’t guarantee everyone has the same moral centre? Will it come to us needing licenses to prove that we are of a sound mind to enjoy certain fare?
