And more film stuff from the Grolsch Film Works blog.
Earlier this year, VICE Films and Grolsch Film Works teamed up with the directors Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko and Jan Kwiecinski to make a three-part film called The Fourth Dimension. Now, Grolsch Film Works have a new website where you can find out what they’ve been up to and read/watch interesting stuff about films. Every week we'll be plucking the highlights. This is that.
A LIST OF EVIL TWINS IN HORROR MOVIES
The return of The Shining to cinemas has given us all a timely reminder to perhaps rethink taking those winter hotel caretaker jobs. We should know better. Start the job and everything’s fine… at first. But by the time spring rolls around you’ve killed your family with an axe and blown your brains out/and or have frozen to death in a hedge maze. Maybe just take that pub job or something in a department store?
When it comes to evil twins in films, there are perhaps none scarier than the Grady twins in The Shining. Here’s a top 5 of twins it would be best to avoid.
LARRY CLARK'S MARFA GIRL TO BE RELEASED ONLINE
Remember Larry Clark, the director of the brilliant Kids and the not so brilliant Ken Park? Yeah, you remember. We’ve been twiddling our thumbs, waiting for his glorious return, but alas, it never came. Still, we remain hopeful about his latest, Marfa Girl, which he’s announced he’ll be releasing online for a breezy $5.99!

A LIST OF MOVIE GOTHS
Out now in Canada, Paolo Sorrentino’s seriously odd This Must Be The Place follows the adventures of retired rockstar Cheyenne (Sean Penn), who is clearly based on The Cure’s singer Robert Smith. Unruly of hair, pale of face and sad of mood, Cheyenne is pretty much your ultimate goth (we’re referring to the subculture that kicked off in the early 80s, by the way, not these guys). Our glum chums have a rich cinematic history, so in honour of Cheyenne, we’ve donned our lipstick and fishnets, turned up our Sisters of Mercy LP and picked our favourite filmic goths.
