I think most of us hardcore horror fans would agree that the state of
most of the horror film industry lately
well, blows. Whether it's a
studio film (and those are the worst offenders) or the indies, there is
just not a whole lot out there that has made a huge impact on horror
fans lately. The high expectations for recent films such as "The
Devil's Rejects", "Land of the Dead", "The Amityville Horror" and so
many others makes one wonder what is going on with horror these days?
Documentarian and creator of the horror magazine "Are You Going?",
Christopher P. Garetano has put together a fascinating, often
irreverent, often deadly serious look at the world of the indie horror
movie in his latest film, "Horror Business". And horror films fans
should really take a look at this one.
Garetano spent two years following the exploits and film-making of such
indie filmmakers as Ron ("Necromaniac") Atkins, Mark ("Scare Me")
Borchardt, David ("Catharsis") Stagnari, John ("Dark Night of the
Soul") Brodie, animator John ("Chirpy") Goras and SFX makeup artist
Tate ("Zombie Honeymoon") Steinsiek and the results are hilarious,
encouraging and depressing. Garetano also interviewed such horror
veterans as Herschell Gordon Lewis, whose advice to filmmakers is to
make a movie FOR the audience, NOT for yourself and "The Devil's
Rejects" Sid Haig who gives his opinion on when a horror movie goes too
far. Cult movie critic Joe Bob Briggs offers his three rules of
film-making which are hilarious, Troma king Lloyd Kaufman stops by and
"Fangoria" editor Tony Timpone gives his insight on the state of horror
today versus when he first started at "Fangoria".
The film is not your typical documentary, filled with "talking heads".
Garetano follows his subjects as they drive around their respective
cities: Milwaukee in Borchardt's case and Las Vegas with Atkins. He
visits in their homes, goes on-set, behind-the-scenes, meets family
members. But the bottom line with everyone he speaks with is the drive
and the passion it takes to make it even a little bit in the cutthroat
film industry. He interviews some very young film fans and asks them
what they want to be when they grow up and, naturally, they all want to
make movies. He even opens his film with every young filmmaker's first
experience making a horror movie with their siblings or friends in
their backyard with dad's movie camera.
But then it's back to the reality he talks with Canadian Brian
Singleton who has had to return from Florida to live with his parents
and try to continue his dream with no money. Mark Borchardt's mom is
helping him finance his film. Some of the films being made are
amateurish, others a bit more polished but at the heart of "Horror
Business" is the degree of passion these artists feel about what they
are doing. Some of the filmmakers are egotistical to a laugh-out-loud
degree while others are quiet and more grounded and realistic about the
business they have chosen to be in. One thing they all seem to have in
common though, is a love for such classic horror films as "The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre" and "The Last House on the Left", both films being
mentioned by all of the filmmakers as having a huge impact on them when
they were young.
These filmmakers aren't poseurs or auteurs they are regular guys who
loved being scared as kids and want to scare moviegoers today. There
are some brief discussions about why we enjoy being scared, how horror
movies are a catharsis from the horrors of everyday life, how they show
us our own mortality but basically Garetano has made a thoroughly
entertaining film that takes us inside the minds of five disparate
horror filmmakers and shows us what they go through to make their and
our dreams (or nightmares) come true.
