Modern Filmmakers Aping Classic Styles
Has anyone noticed more and more modern filmmakers creating new works in old styles? Aside from the high profile ones like QT & Rodriguez and the Grindhouse thing, I discovered an indie guy who makes only 1950's style sci-fi and horror movies. He's pretty good AND his movies aren't spoofs. They're honest to god, non-joke, modern-made, old-style movies. I got one off of NetFlix called The Monster of Phantom Lake and absolutely fell in love with it. He's got one coming out next year called Cave Women on Mars. Seriously. Another good example is the one that came out a couple years ago, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. Anyone see that? I liked it but it was really hit and miss with the jokes. Great monster costume though.
