Those that know me know that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is my favorite movie. I love it for all the crazy scripting & images that Hunter S. came up with while, to put it gently, “under the influence”.
Well, at least HST could blame the drugs. What’s Neil Gaiman’s excuse for the stuff he comes up with?
If you don’t know who Neil Gaiman is, he is the creative force behind the graphic novel series ‘The Sandman’, as well as the author of several bestsellers, including American Gods & NeverWhere.
Well, he has a new movie coming out this weekend, MirrorMask. And from the looks of the trailer, I could only guess as to where this guy comes up with his stuff. I described it to a friend as ‘The Cell’, but less demonic.
Anyone out there looking for some interesting stuff to read should pick up a Sandman graphic novel, or a copy of one of his other books. He’s kinda like Stephen King, but without all the clowns and errie horror… most of the horror that he writes borders on fantasy.
I am gonna check out MirrorMask tonight, and will post a review later.
