This is a housekeeping post of various entries that don’t merit their own blog per se, but work as part of a wider reaching ramble and extra curricular discourse.
Firstly, I forgot that this site had a podcast. So there’s a new episode below discussing Barbatachtian Returns. It contains some spoilers, so watch it first. Or don’t.
Secondly, the new film has had a few reviews. I’ll discuss the YouTube’s ones in a future podcast, but I’d like to focus on the one I actually give a shit about. Namely Dark Eyes of London Review
It’s a brutally honest review, but it does praise the film visually and audibly in parts. Which is fair enough. I think my films need actual actors in them who can, ya know, act… which will let me accentuate my positives in terms of visuals and sound. Most importantly, this reviewer did not like the other two films. So the vibe here being that it’s not as awful is really cool. Progress.
Thirdly, Scream in a cinema is amazing. What a film.
Fourthly, I am working on a combined cut of Barbatachtian and Barbatachtian Returns into one giant film. That’ll be a 2022 thing.
Finally, Barbatachtian’s follow up is going to be a direct sequel. The prequel will be made at some point, but one person on Twitter replied to my poll saying a direct sequel was what they wanted and by God I don’t let my fans down.
