I’ll keep this one quick. Cinema Suicide is a force to be reckoned with but some films exceed its mighty boundaries and need to be caged elsewhere. Richard Griffin’s latest, The Disco Exorcist is one such film. I rolled out down to Providence, Rhode Island Saturday night for the premier of the movie and left not sure what I was going to say about it. I have a habit of running at the mouth about how much I like Griffin’s movies and based on what I had just seen, I knew that I was left with no choice but to write an open love letter to Scorpio Film Releasing to be posted on the internet. The Disco Exorcist immediately became my favorite Griffin movie. It’s raunchy, it’s sleazy and it’s extremely fucking funny.
In this very space I started to write my review when it occurred to me that Cinema Suicide wasn’t going to do. I don’t often talk about my traffic here because you couldn’t give a fuck. Am I right? This time, however, my traffic wasn’t going to cut it. I do okay, don’t get me wrong. I have to claw for every hit I get here but as I wrote I realized that I really wanted a lot of people to know about this movie and if that was going to happen, I was going to have to ship the review out to another site. Todd Brown, over at Twitch Film, is a wicked nice guy who has both written about me in the past and run my reviews when I write up a film that I don’t feel really fits the profile of this site. Speaking in terms of site hits – impressions as we call them in the biz – what I get in two months, Todd gets in an afternoon. Thankfully, he was kind enough to feature my review and it’s running there right now.
