Pablo Ganguli: Open Letter to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan
Huffington Post - over 4 years
We, citizens of the world, are deeply saddened and concerned by the severe violence against citizens of Turkey by the Turkish police over the last couple of days in Turkish cities including Istanbul. We ask the prime minister of Turkey and his government why he allowed for the violence to begin in the first place against peaceful protesters who are simply asking for freedom of speech and for their rights to be heard. We ask the government why it is not following the most important rule of democracy: the right to have freedom of expression? Why did Turkish media not report the violence and devastating attacks by the police? Can the Turkish government truly guarantee that all violent acts against its people will stop immediately? Thousands have been seriously injured, many have lost their eyes, some have lost their lives. As families all over the country are in shock and mourning, what is the next step for the government? Are they finally willing to listen to its people? We...

3D Bloodsuckers in Cannes Midnights
Ciniplex - over 5 years
The venerable Cannes Film Festival, similar to Toronto, has a Midnight section, but it is clearly lacking the Madness element, wimping out at only a three film selections and skipping the opportunity at fun introductions or any pumping up of the audience. Having delivered some of the standout horror films of the seventies and eighties including Deep Red, Suspiria and Opera, Cannes was showing tribute to Italian horror maestro Dario Argento by premiering his new film, Dracula in 3-D at the Midnight selection. I was thrilled to join the Cannes horror film posse and walk up the red carpet to enter the grand Palais des Festivals et des Congrès that seats over 2500, especially with Argento, his daughter and star of the film, Asia Argento and leading man Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted) in attendance.

Blu-ray Review - Demons 2 (1986)
Flickering Myth - almost 6 years
Demons 2 (Italian: Dèmoni 2), 1986. Directed by Lamberto Bava. Starring David Edwin Knight, Nancy Brilli, Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni, Bobby Rhodes and Asia Argento. SYNOPSIS: An apartment building becomes infected by demons, who then proceed to prey on the tenants. Following the success of Demons, it came as no surprise that Dario Argento would produce a sequel. The first film ended with a suggestion and possibility of an expansive sequel, taking us into a post-apocalyptic Zombie-ravaged waste land. That isn’t the case here, as the film merely references the first whilst telling a new story. That is of course due to budgetary reasons, but nevertheless, having watched and enjoyed the first so much, a continuation of the story would have been welcomed. Demons 2 focuses on an apartment building and its inhabitants. Like the first movie, it’s a confined space to be filled with demonic zombie foe. As with Demons, the film lacks a strong protagonist and any character development. T...
