|...One of the biggest stories along that line happened a few years ago, when Brazilian journalist Andre Barcinski, visiting Seattle to check out the grunge rock scene, brought a couple of bizarre videos from his home country to show Seattle's Mike Vraney, the man behind Something Weird Video and an unflaggingly enthusuastic fan of off-beat exploitation cinema. "I'm watching these things, and I'm thinking 'Nobody here has even seen this footage, all this gore and crass, intense material,'" recalls Vraney. "I ask Andre, 'What year was this made?' and he tells me it was 1963, the year of [the pioneering gore film] Blood Feast. This man couldn't have seen Blood Feast. He has no reference point. So the guy who made this is a genius. It's as simple as that.'|
