Son Of Dante’s Inferno
Speaking of popular demand, I’m thrilled that starting this Wednesday, the legendary New Beverly Cinema (where Martin & Lewis used to perform when it was known as Slapsy Maxie’s) is letting Joe Dante drag the schedule back to his movie hell, which is audience heaven. Here’s my on-the-spot reportage of last year’s amazing festival. This time, even though Dante is in post on THE HOLE, a 3-D horror film (!), he’s coming armed with some of his own classics such as his sneak preview print of GREMLINS and one of my personal faves, MATINEE. Bruce Dern and Roger Corman are scheduled guests, and even cooler, Dante is bringing back his incredible, THE MOVIE ORGY — in an extended cut! Here’s a terrific interview at Sergio Leone & The Infield Fly Rule. Remember, get more out of life, go out to a movie!
