Contributing pieces on non-mainstream fare
for film festivals, magazines, podcasts and other channels of cultural enlightement, like my mini-tour introductions of Cannibal Holocaust in bothGothenburg and Stockholm for the Swedish Film Institute, is partially what I do as I preach the gospel of the alternative history of film. Being part of Stockholm's Monsters of Film Festival, I wrote a piece on Emiliano Rocha Minter's Tenemos de carne (We Are the Flesh)... which got me thinking of stuff that must of, or most likely, inspired and influenced Minter in his murky provocative decent into sex and death. Naturally, Juan López Moctezuma’s movies came to mind. More than others, Alucarda, because Alucarda is one of, if not the best, demonic possession movie ever made. It’s creepy, disturbing, gory, loads of fun and holds extremely high production values that all add up to make it one of the most entertaining movies to come out of Mexico during the seventies.
