I am off in mere minutes to attend my ninth Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) here in South Korea! I have at least 35 films lined up for the next nine days, and possibly more. I will write an overview article for Phantom of the Movies' VideoScope magazine and provide reviews for Gruesome Magazine (you can link directly to my articles at http://gruesomemagazine.com/author/josephperry/, but make sure to check out all of the other fantastic content there, too), That's Not Current (a new website launching right around August 1; I'll provide the link when the site goes live), the Monster Movie Podcast with host Doc Rotten (check out Doc's other excellent podcasts at docrotten.com), and a new publication or two that I will write about when things become official.
Big-screen horror is a rarity here, but there is a wealth of it this summer! Besides BIFAN, Seoul repertory cinema Cinematheque will feature a John Carpenter retrospective as part of its "Summer Vacance" series. It will be a blast to revisit several of his classics as they were meant to be seen. Also, Hush . . . Hush, Sweet Charlotte, Night of the Hunter, and the 1920s French science fiction film Inhuman Woman are on the Cinematheque schedule. From now through the end of August, I will either be watching films or writing about them --- not a bad way to try and escape the heat, humidity, and monsoon rains that make up Korean summer!
I also have articles in the now-monthly SQ Horror Magazine; you can buy print or digital versions here. The new issue of Phantom of the Movies' VideoScope magazine should hit newsstands and mailboxes any day now, and I have three articles in that issue. I'll update about that when it is available.
