Even Indiscriminate Killers Don't Discriminate

Recently the blog was contacted by Darkwalker director Danny Draven. Normally when we're contacted by a famous or semi-famous person or organization, it's because April has invented some bullshit pseudo-legal shakedown and we're being told not to use images X, Y, and Z, or else. Not this time.

Danny understandably felt a little bad about some of the things I said about Darkwalker in a recent post. So I'd like to take a moment to clarify: Darkwalker is a shitty movie--if you're comparing it to Nightmare on Elm Street, or Friday the 13th. However, if you enjoy B-list horror flicks as much as I do, then it's a great movie. So when I said that it wasn't good, I meant it in a good way. If you like B-flicks, or just want to see April get killed by a very large monster, you should see it. If you don't, then it's probably not the movie for you. Also, if you have an affinity with tomatoes it's also probably not the movie for you, as a tomato patch the size of Alberta was used to produce the massive amounts of ketchup-like gore consumed in the movie.

We're still waiting on a formal statement from the film's producer, Danny did want us to explain that even indiscriminate killers (like Darkwalker) don't discriminate (like the Gaedes), and that the makers of the film certainly didn't know about the Gaedes rather unsavory racial-political inclinations. Ultimately, that final point is something we probably all understand. It wasn't their job to know.

So to Danny, but most of all to the Darkwalker, we'd like to say, "No hard feelings, guys." Also, "Is there a sequel planned? Because we have some ideas."
