Old School

Found an interesting movie at the rental place today... Hatchet... listen to this tagline...

"It's not a remake. It's not a sequel. And it's not based on a Japanese one! Old School American Horror"

Interesting that everything I'm interested in has a tendency to re-invent itself so much that there is true value in shrugging off everything modern about it and embracing what came before with open arms... and it's interesting that doing so can be a marketing decision, even if the "old school" values advertised are complete bullshit.

I liked Hatchet, by the way. It's a true gross-out, and even though it has a lot of humor, it's all situational and not at all wink-wink hipster irony.

(oh, and that Night of the Living Dead anniversary edition from the 90s with the newly-shot footage? Total shit. Fuckin hell.)
