Lahore daria kinzer There was

Lahore daria kinzer

There was an aesthetic reason, because the movie starts with television images, and that influences the whole movie. It also gives you a feeling of hyper-reality, which makes it more frightening. There are techniques you can use, like the strobing when the zombies are moving in close-up, which is just a setting in the camera. But video is a very flexible format, especially when you have to do what we did, which was empty whole parts of London. You couldnt do that when you have to drag around giant 35 mm cameras, especially on an 8 million dollar budget. UGO: Did you have any fear of this film coming out after anthrax and SARS scares? AM: Well, this film was done pre-Sept But in the United Kingdom, weve had this foot and mouth disease. There were piles of burning animal carcasses on television. We seem to be becoming the leader of these kinds of diseases in the world. Genre films like this come out of fears like that; Omega Man coming out of the Cold War and Romeros films coming out of the Vietnam War. UGO: Danny described this movie as the worst possible case of road rage. AM: Its all about being intolerant. When Danny read the first draft, to him, it was a film about human rage. A psychological virus. The virus has been growing inside people. Everyone wants everything now. There are more and more cars and less and less room. Someone who doesnt move fast enough will get beaten up. Its the same in hospitals when they dont get served enough. Its an instability and intolerance that we have more and more in the west. Yes, its a provacative title. But this film inspired me in a way that few others have. Why? Because it clearly had the potential to be a really good, even great, film. But they blew it. They totally fcking blew it. And that makes me mad. One or two plot holes, or inconsistencies, I can overlook. But when they pile up one after the other after the other after the other, none of which after the first one or two maybe need to be there for any plot reason, I become incapable of suspending my disbelief, and I shift from movie-watching mode to MST3K heckler mode. Hence the bile I herewith spew onto this film, much as the zombies in it spewed blood onto those they were trying to infect.
