Note from Joe:
When I read Paul Dini & Stephen Langford’s script for ‘The Right Snuff’, immediately I thought it would be a lot of fun to play with the tropes of “idealized sci-fi”, back when the genre’s tech and design was indicative of the times and not influenced by a grounded realism or NASA (yet). A time in genre cinema when directors, production designers, special-effects teams, costume designers et al were tasked with creating worlds outside our own but still be somewhat believable. It was a blast going back to the films I loved as a kid that kinda came up with their own fantastical looks and designs that, at the time, likely felt real but now seem crude and unbelievable by today’s standards, especially after films like ‘Alien’ and ‘Outland’ took a more grounded approach.
It was so exciting finding old button-and-lever-based machines to retro-fit into the controls of the ship and we even employed the “Saul Bass orange” into the overall look of the space station Nebula, which was a gas. Plus, both our main actors Ryan Kwantan (‘True Blood’, ‘Knights of Badassdom’) and Breckin Meyer (‘Clueless’, ‘Happily’) discussed how to replicate the slightly more theatrical cadences of those actors’ performances from the ’60s and ’70s genre films into their own performances, which only added to the “retro” feel.
It’s not every day you get to mix your Romero tropes and your Kubrick homages together into one dark story, right? As we would say every day on the set: ”Hey… that’s Creepshow!”

I feel like I know this place.
One of the rare films that I wanted to rewatch as soon as my initial viewing was over. Marketed as a horror film, it's much more of a psychological thriller that concerns itself with being a great original film rather then simply something that would appeal to the masses. That is also the reason why this film has mostly lingered in obscurity while bad films that are considered the same genre got…
It’s March 17th so let the Lepre-thon begin.
‘One scene required the Leprechaun to find and eat Lucky Charms cereal, which the company gave them permission to do. Upon seeing the finished film, the company was displeased and would not allow them to use the scene and the film makers had the choice to either cut the scene or to re-shoot it, costing them more money. They chose to re-shoot it, replacing the brand name with an obvious spoof of…
i understand that you're supposed to be confused but half of the people in this movie looking the same doesn't really help either
i thought the imdb parents guide was exaggerating when it said “we can’t stress enough just how gory this movie is” but ..... hoo boy
I DO NOT LIKE HUNKY BOYS...
or do I?
This movie is a fucking blast. Highest recommendation.
Every time I watch this movie, it feels different, which I think is probably a testament to how clever it is. This time, I think as a result of watching it so soon after Kairo, I really felt the sense of all-consuming loneliness. It plays out like a ghost story, a man lured inevitably towards his fate by a siren in a white dress, and the ending - cruel, painful, unforgettable - is the only way a story like that could end.
