Blood and Bones on the Beach!
From October 2012, Cine-Excess is delighted to announce that it will be moving to Brighton, where it will join the established Cine-City International Film Festival as an event supported and promoted by the University of Brighton. Here, the Cine-Excess International Film Festival and DVD label activities will join a new Cine-Excess Presents feature film development arm as resources to underpin the BA Honours degree in Digital Film that the University of Brighton will be launching in October 2013.
Cine-Excess VII will take place in October 2013, with a variety of partners adding to the event’s distinctive mix of global film-maker awards, retrospectives and premieres of new cult film releases.
Ahead of next year’s annual event, Cine-Excess presented the UK Premiere of Kim Henkel’s new splatter flick Boneboys at this year’s Cine-City Film Festival on Saturday 24th November.
In 1974, Henkel wrote one of the most notorious and influential horror movies of all time: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The film thrilled and disturbed audiences and launched the careers of Henkel and his directing colleague Tobe Hooper. Now Henkel returns to the theme of American society feeding off itself with his new chiller.
Directed by Austin based film-makers Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, Henkel’s new script fuses Jonathan Swift’s tale ‘A Modest Proposal’ with a Southern cannibalistic elite operating from a meat-feast diner. With its surreal and unsettling imagery, the film pushes The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s absurdist and gruesome narrative to the limit, as well as providing a wealth of cult cameos from iconic ‘chainsaw’ performers.
