Splatters From Kansas
By PETER RUGG
Movies in the upcoming Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors in New Jersey are imaginative if not tasteful — which is the whole point. Among the three days of films screening at the horror fan convention, there’s Machine Girl, about a Japanese high school student with a machine gun for an arm who fights gangsters and ninjas, and Splatter Disco, which is exactly what it sounds like. This is a convention for hardcore monster fans who want to see people exploding in the most artful ways possible. So it’s nice to see a pair of locals leading the pack.
A short-film showcase called Horrors From Kansas kicks off the weekend.
