In a FANGORIA exclusive, we’ve learned that legendary
Canadian genre film producer John Dunning (pictured) is preparing a comeback. Dunning is
planning to give his fans “one more hell of a creep fest,” complete with his
trademark of sinister killings that will make your skin crawl.
Along for the ride is his old associate George Mihalka,
director of Dunning’s 1981 slasher classic MY BLOODY VALENTINE, along with
co-writer Lorenzo Orzari. “We are planning a flick that will frighten all
ages,” the producer tells Fango.
Now in his 84th year, Dunning is as strong as ever. The
veteran cinema slinger—along with partner Andre Link—was the creative force
behind Cinepix, the Quebec-based distribution and production house which
brought the ILSA series to world recognition, while mentoring David Cronenberg
on the director’s early films SHIVERS and RABID. Cinepix also unleashed another
iconic shot of Canadian-content carnage with HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, directed by
J. Lee Thompson. Also among the more than 57 films to Dunning’s credit are the
early works of filmmakers Ivan Reitman and Don Carmody.
As for this new opus, details are being kept relatively
under wraps, but Dunning offers a few exclusive words on the project in
FANGORIA #303, on sale this month. We’ll bring you details as we get them, and
look for more on Dunning in the magazine’s pages in the future.
