Son Of Zacherley

rahnerRahner's Rotten Rentals [embedded Real video], Seattle Times critic Mark Rahner's Halloween movie roundup, pays tribute to the heroically shlocky TV horror hosts of the 60s and adds a grateful nod to the horror hosts of today. Pay special attention to the press conference scene, and marvel at the layered performance by the white-shirted zombie sitting next to Rahner. He quietly grounds the film with a restrained approach that recalls Bill Murray's emotionally stranded pilgrim from Lost In Translation.
