Reel Jersey Film Festival
The Bergen County Film Commission, in association with the Fort Lee Film Commission, presents:
While The Coffin Daggers got ready for their set, the screen in the grand old Rivoli Theater played scenes from a very diverse variety of b-movie horror and soft-core 60’s nudie flicks (just like a midnite movie 😉 At around 11:15pm The Coffin Daggers played an excellent set of hard-driving and loud surf rock instrumentals, to a horror muxvid loop playing above them, after which the overweight drag couple in matching Bo-Peep-hybrid outfits (I didn’t see any shepherd’s canes 😉 …or sheep, for that matter, but maybe that’s a good thing! 😉 … or maybe they were sposed to be the twins from The Shining? …dunno… ) joined Mark and Mark from WeirdNJ onstage for the raffle drawing. I didn’t win – oh well…
The cast from The Blood Shed took the stage, Mark introduced the film and we were all off and running! (to the comfort of ulphostered theater lounge seats in the Rivoli, that is…)
The Blood Shed is classic Alan Rowe Kelly fare falling somewhere btn the b-movie flicks, John Waters, John Carpenter and Hammer Films (all of who I am sure must be influences for Alan); toss in Alan’s own Jersey je nais se qua… 😉 Alan, of course, plays one of the lead characters, the burly “child”, Beeftina Bullion as well as having directed and produced. The whole thing’s just a mad, gory hoot!
I didn’t get a chance to speak with Alan, tho I hope to sometime this weekend at the festival. I did have the wonderful opportunity to meet Alan several years ago at the premiere of I’ll Bury You Tomorrow at the Darress Theater in Boonton, NJ.

Saturday September 27 was a sort of dreary day weather-wise, so it was a perfect day for trying to pack in seeing as many film festival films as possible.
I managed to see four films on Saturday at the Reel Jersey Film Festival (in the order I saw them):
