Frank and Zed is Jesse Blanchard's debut feature film, and his studio Puppetcore is an operation that I'm sure many horror makeup fans would love to work at. 

The people who work there now must have had fun creating this movie, as it really gets crazy with the effects offered in this movie about a Frankenstein monster and a ghoul. Technically, the latter is a zombie. All this over the top massacre is the orgy of destruction to which the villagers fear coming. This film wastes no time in explaining the situation in the beginning act and the waiting for this moment to happen is certainly worthwhile. Without a proper story, none of the action would be understandable.

I have to wonder if Stefan Lernous'
Hotel Poseidon is his interpretation of the classic Eagles song, "Hotel California?" I know the lyrics all too well, and although the band acknowledged the song was about hedonism and excess (in America), this film is the polar opposite. It's a story about despair and urban decay.

Dave (Tom Vermeir) is the manager, and he doesn't care if his building regularly gets guests in or not. When Nora (Anneke Sluiters) sweetly talks her way in, he's hardly swooning.

Lost Boys is an indirect sequel to Reindeerspotting: Escape from Santaland, as it blurs the line between reality and fiction. This feature film is billed as a documentary in Fantasia Film Festival's programme guide, and if so, this piece is a dark and disturbing look at a side of life in Cambodia which is not good.
