It's 1945 and teenager Terry Fleming (Adam Butcher) is in a quandry. Terry lives in the normally quiet town of Gander, Newfoundland, but given that it's the tail end of World War II, the area is awash with activity as a stopover point for flights. Terry is itching to work in Gander as this will afford him the opportunity to meet with many of the movie stars and GIs that are popping through the area.
But Terry is torn. He would also like to stay at home and look after his sick mother Voilet (Deidre Gillard-Rowlings). She is diagnosed with diptheria and their family home quarantined. Both mother and son share a passion for the musicians and movie stars of the day. Terry dreams up an alternative reality where he is indeed a waiter to the stars and gets to have a romance with the girl next door Laurie Dwyer (Joanne Kelly). However with his mother's impending demise and the war still raging Terry is torn between his childlike fantasy and growing up and becoming a man.
Cara Buono stars as Joanna Schwartzbaum, a depressed Brooklyn housewife sees her drab life take a very unexpected turn, for the better, following an encounter with an alien force. Joanna teams up with a fellow contactee Abraham (Isaach De Bankole), an African immigrant, to make sense of her encounter and what their post-abduction insignias mean.
Written and directed by Barry Strugatz (writer of Eighties fare such as Married to the Mob and She Devil) From Other Worlds is kooky, disarming, but unfortunately not always as funny as it believes itself to be. What Strugatz's film does have working for it in spades is a positive vibe, along with earnest, if variable, performances and a belief in the material that transcends its writing.
Our friends at FrightFest have been kind enough to share with us their interview with the director of forthcoming shocker BASKIN.
Ahead of the UK premiere screening of BASKIN at the Glasgow Film Festival, FrightFest ask the director Can Evrenol a few pertinent questions...
Q: What were the challenges of elongating the BASKIN short film ideas into a full feature?
A brief history of Turkish genre cinema and the must-see movies virgins should see?
Please refer to the awesome award winning documentary "Remake, Remix, Rip-Off" (2014) for a brief history Turkish genre madness. Must see movies: "Man Who Saves The World aka Turkish Star Wars", "Tarkan vs Viking" and "Deathless Devil", tho be sure to have your fast forward button close. And last but not least "Dort Yanım Cehennem" whose english subttiles are done by Evrim Ersoy and I!
Q: BASKIN is visually and narratively very ambitious for your first feature...
I guess it is a continuation of the same visual and narrative journey that I've been experimenting and progressing on through my short films. I'm learning as I go.
