The lost skeleton of Cadavra, uno dei film più assurdamente divertenti di sempre, ha ora unseguito: qui i dettagli e ben dieci trailer. Il film sta girando tra anteprime e festival dallo scorso autunno, nella speranza che qualche produttore lo apprezzi e decida di distribuirlo ed eventualmente pubblicarlo su dvd: cosa che può succedere, ma anche no, come è purtroppo capitato a un altro omaggio ai b-movie del regista Larry Blamire, il quasi inedito Trail of the screaming forehead.
I fan fremono nell’attesa e nell’incertezza, tanto che la crew ha allestito un’illuminante serie di faq.

Welcome to the world of independent film making! I’ll quote Mike “precode” Schlesinger, who quotes Bruce Campbell; “If you know your release date while you’re shooting, you’re not an independent film.”
Here’s how it works in the little leagues, roughly: investors scrape together money to make a film.
Movie gets made. Film is shown around and promoted at various film festivals, film cons, and maybe scattered theater bookings until… A film distributor sees it, likes it, and picks it up for distribution. Maybe. Then… IF the film is picked up for theatrical distribution, a DVD release likely follows. If not that lucky, a direct-to-DVD release may happen.
So here’s why “they” have no snappy answer for your “When?” questions.
It’s because nobody knows how long it will take for step #4 to occur. Or for that matter, steps 1, 2, 3, and 5, probably. They of the big studios usually know what will happen and when because they have the money to make stuff happen when they want it to. In the independent film world, most things happen when they happen.
It’s not that “they” don’t like you, your kids, and your friends who all want more skeleton-derived comedy and such. They love ya! It’s simply that “they” don’t know until it happens. And no one wants these things to happen more than “they”. Trust me, they’re working on it.
