Movie Reviews

Review by Director -George A Romero (Night Of The Living Dea
CHARLIE | USA | 12/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)


"[Horror Business] is a terrific flick. Christopher Garetano has completely succeeded in describing the passions, the adventures- and the misadventures- of crazy people like me who, somewhere along the way, decided they... needed to make movies. Anyone who wants to write or direct should see this film. Those who have never dreamed of being filmmakers should see it for its humor and its pure entertainment value. Two thumbs up- both of them mine because, like the others Garetano has portraited, I basically work alone."

Terrific doc on z-budget filmmakers

"I applaud Chris Garetano for hanging in through all the ups-and-downs to complete his documentary on these hell-bent dreamers. Are these folks obsessed? Sure. You have to be. It's that simple. Just as Garetano was--if you want to make a dream or two happen. How heavy is the toll paid along the way? Very. Still, life is short--and you only get one shot at it--so follow your heart, man: win, lose or draw.

It was also great to see the incomperable Mr. Ed Neal (Hitchiker from the original TCM) do a cameo here.
Check out the extras.

Can't wait for Son of Horror Business, as well as South Texas Blues. I truly hope you can pull it off--because it's about time someone, anyone, did a film about the hellish experience making the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre was.

A must have if you are a real horror fan

"Chris Garretano is a genius filmmaker who has a real gift for documentary direction. I love horror films and am always interested in the behind the scenes info. This great showcase captures the hopes, dreams and challenges of a handful of some really colorful filmmakers as they break into the mainstream market. There is some great commentary by well known horror actors and industry people. A few of the subject filmmakers are just wacky and funny to watch, and then there are some who are definitely serious and obviously very talented, like David Stagnari. The clips from his film are visually stunning and he is compelling to watch. I can't wait to see more from him and from the director of this documentary. I'm buying copies of this for all my horror fan friends as gifts this year for birthdays and the holidays!"
