Kentucky’s Fright Night Film Festival has recently announced the Best of the Fest award winner, and the lucky title is Sea of Dust from horror master Tom Savini and terror hottie Ingrid Pitt.
Described as a “satirical title” of “an otherworldly evil that threatens to possess humanity” and a “bizarre tribute to the European horror cinema of the 1960s”, Sea of Dust has taken its share of awards so fare, and was Fright Night’s keystone Friday night projection. It has also taken a Best Picture Grand Prize from RIIFF, the Rhode Island International Film Festival.
Chances are, Sea of Dust marks more of an anomaly than any actual movement in filmmaking, and won’t likely produce a whole lot of imitators. But if you’re hungry for a little of that old fashioned European horror madness, you’ll likely do just fine with Sea of Dust.
