With our HOOKER sitting proudly...
We're the middle piece! As if that wasn't enough of an honor - there was the write up (tears) which I'm not too much of a tough guy to admit, it truly touched me. It was incredibly thoughtful piece that really delved into the movie on the screen and behind the scenes.
"Throughout 2010, we've heard a great deal about the need to show support for independent horror. At times, this was being shouted from the rooftops, in an attempt to rally support for films that, whereas they may have indeed been independent in nature, they're budget and studio connections were a far cry from that of most independent films. I agree, as horror fans, it is paramount that we support independent cinema, and it's films like Dead Hooker In A Trunk that are truly deserving of our support!
Nearly every actor and actress who appeared on screen in this film also served the film in other areas, from camera operators and stunt coordinators to editors and cinematographers. This film is a work of art, and it's a labor of love. Love from fans of horror, and of film in general, who took that love and put it to work, creating a film of their own. And the love and respect that these men and women have for the the genre, as well as for movies as a whole, is very evident throughout the entire film. This is how a movie is supposed to look, sound and feel! There are many filmmakers out there, especially in Hollywood working with billion dollar budgets on films that no true fan of the cinema even cares to see, who could all stand to learn a great deal about the art of filmmaking, and the love that is required when making a movie, from Jen & Sylvia Soska, C.J. Wallis and everyone whose blood, sweat, heart, love and tears went into making Dead Hooker In A Trunk!"
Thank you so kindly, Scott Ruth - the Horror Examiner, for taking the time to watch the film, write this article - READ THE WHOLE PIECE HERE -, and rank the film as #3 - HERE - on your top twenty list for 2010. It is an immense honor to be on that list and to have such kind words said about the film and the team behind it. Thank you kindly, sir.
