This year, the Carolina Theater messed with me. Last year, they had shows during the week. So, I didn’t ask for the weekend off for 2015. But, they didn’t do week day shows this year. When I asked about it on their FaceBook page, they told me that 2014 was a one-off and it wasn’t likely to happen again. And one of my co-workers had already made plans for Sunday. So, I got to cram all my films in to Friday and Saturday.
Then, they took down the film list as soon as the festival was over. So, I didn’t have any references for the shorts and am hard pressed to remember the titles of the feature films I saw.
I can remember that I saw Savageland and Valley of the Sasquatch and they were both excellent. And, I spotted David Saucedo, who had played Sergio-the-asshole in Sasquatch, in a small part in Savageland. I was pleased that my brain worked that well.
He was supposed to be at the festival, but got sick at the last minute and was unable to make it. And I’m sorry about that because I’m a fan, now.
