Nerdlocker Artist Interview – Rob Jones

I have been a longtime fan of artist Rob Jones. Rob has fine-tuned the art of designing and screen printing and has easily become recognized throughout the world as one of the foremost graphic designers/poster artists.

Fantastic Fest: Cockneys vs Zombies Review

I have to admit I was kind of excited about this movie. The trailer made me think Guy Ritchie and Edgar Right had birthed some kind of cinematic love child. It’s the first feature for director Matthias Hoene and the premise is zom-com gold. Two brothers, Andy (Harry Treadaway) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker), hatch a […]Read More

Fantastic Fest Day Four!!!

Day of four of Fantastic Fest was time travel movie day, and by far the best day of the fest for me personally! First up was the incredibly low budget time-travel sci-fi Young Gun In The Time (yes, this grammar is intentional). This film was shot on a thirty thousand dollar budget, which blows my […]Read More

Fantastic Fest Day Three!

Day three of Fantastic Fest was thematically all over the place… First up, Markus Dunstan’s follow up to his much loved but not much seen 2009 slasher film, The Collector. Writers Markus Dunstan and Patrick Melton penned Saw IV, V and VI. They were also co-authors with my friend and fellow Austinite, Stephan Romano, on […]Read More

Fantastic Fest Day Two!!!

Day two here at Fantastic Fest 2012 was a bit more low key than day one. Of course, that was after I dropped my motorcycle, burned myself on the muffler (again!) and broke the clutch lever. But you’re not here to hear about my injured pride… The day, post motorcycle drama, started out strong with […]Read More

Fantastic Fest Day One!!!

Well I’m one full day into Fantastic Fest 2012, which isn’t counting the many days previous of watching screeners. So far everything has been pretty great. The Fest started out strong with Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, which was so good I saw it twice! And cried both times. Admittedly I’m a bit of a softie for […]Read More
