Date From Hell

Ven Scott (Frontman of Runescarred)

Short Horror Film Review

By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio


There's the old cliche that some things really go well together. For example,  Dunkin Donuts and New England natives, Scottish men and kilts, you get the picture. From experience in the trenches of the subculture, the finest of all pairings has got to be metal and horror movies. A Lot of times you get metal mixed right into the horror genre. Remember Dee Snider's StrangelandAnd how can we forget Rob Zombie's dance with the holy grail of Halloween? Metal just mixes so beautifully with horror that I can recall dozens of movies where the music featured in the background made the movie. Check out some of the Saw series scores, The Crow, and who can forget the infamous “Dream Warriors” track on Nightmare on Elm Street 3 

We have Austin, Texas metal frontman of Runescarred and ex-Dead Earth Politics, Ven Scott with his directorial debut of Date From Hell. Ven Scott does honor to the genre in the short 12 minutes of this film. Heavily inspired by 1980s horror movies  (the fucking best years), Date From Hell is actually a bit humorous. The main characters are Bobby and Susie, two small town young adults that apparently love each other into annoyance. A playful game of cat and mouse takes a gory deadly turn with a little surprise at the end. The cinematography is well done and certainly gave it a classic horror movie feel. Now I don't mind the modern day CGI effects but it is certainly a breather when artists like Ven Scott return to the roots of makeup and lighting. 

The main characters, Samuel Brett Howard (Bobby) and Ava L’Amoreaux (Susie), play their parts well. Again, I enjoyed the humor within their characters. The closing song, of course, added that sinister touch to it. I can't wait to hear/see what Ven Scott has for us in his future endeavors. Stay tuned
