The next film on the agenda was an anthology flick called The Theatre Bizarre, which contained films by filmmakers Douglas Buck, Buddy Giovinazzo, David Gregory, Karim Hussain, Jeremy Kasten, Tom Savini and Richard Stanley. The bits contained a wide variety of tones and genres, and I really, truly appreciated that it wasn’t just a collection of one-up splatterfests, but instead a grouping of similar-minded filmmakers telling their own stories in their own ways. Because the stories are all over the place (though quite a few do center on relationships), there’s something in here for everyone. Everyone who would contemplate seeing a movie called The Theatre Bizarre, that is.
After the film ended, practically the entire cast and crew of all the films was in attendance, and came down to the front for a Q&A. One of the few times being in the second row for pictures was far too close to get everyone in the shot, so I had to retreat.
