I met Tom and he told me to tell you: buy your older sister THE LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE on DVD for Christmas. Then laugh at her because she thought she was sooo cool; she didn't know there was a sequel, did she? Fehh. Tom Savini's in it, fool, and I pray to sweet baby Jesus you saw Tom as "Sex Machine" in Rodriquez's FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN. If you didn't, then your reliability is really becoming questionable.
AND: keep your eyes peeled for his big year in '10, as Tom will break through to A-list status when MACHETE, ELDORADO and THE DEAD MATTER all squeeze out to some form of watchable media. There's actually a chance you could catch MACHETE if you live in a major city. The cast alone is a head-shaking explosion of raunchy possibility: DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Seagal -- and yes that's Steven -- Rose McGowan, and Danny Trejo reprising the title role from GRINDHOUSE's faux trailers. With any luck, Savini will get a couple minutes in the waterfall scene, too. He's due. -- P. DeCirce
