In the ever-evolving landscape of horror cinema, there's a peculiar trend that has been quietly creeping into the limelight over the past few years: sequels without origin films. Yes, you read that right. Some franchises have boldly released fifth installments before the audience even had a glimpse of the first one. It's a kind of madness that we're humorously dubbing "Nogin" (No Origin), and whether it's for the better or worse remains a subject of debate. One thing is certain – it's undeniably amusing.
Enter the realm of cinematic absurdity, where the traditional narrative order takes a backseat, and filmmakers plunge headfirst into uncharted territory. Is it a bold experiment, a twist on convention, or simply a playful nod to the unpredictability of the horror genre? The answer might be as elusive as the missing origin films themselves.
Amidst this cinematic chaos, the "Another Hole in the Head Festival" emerges as a beacon for all things unconventional and boundary-pushing in horror. This San Francisco-based genre festival is renowned for celebrating the weird, the wild, and the wonderfully bizarre. And now, breaking the mold in true Nogin fashion, the festival proudly announces Alec Bonk's "Blind Cop 2."
Here's the catch – don't bother scouring the internet for the elusive first film because, in a delightful twist, "Blind Cop 2" marks Alec Bonk's debut in the director's chair. The festival promises a unique experience, defying expectations and embracing the unpredictable nature of the horror genre.
Stay tuned for all the spine-tingling details coming out of the Another Hole in the Head Festival, as they unveil the mystery behind "Blind Cop 2." Is it a sequel? A prequel? Or perhaps a standalone tale that defies the conventions of origin altogether? Only time will tell.
Whether you're a die-hard horror enthusiast or simply intrigued by the unconventional, keep an eye out for updates on "Blind Cop 2" and the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival. It's bound to be a cinematic journey that defies expectations and challenges the norms – after all, in the world of Nogin, anything is possible.
