    Q&A: Steven Kostanski gets serious about “MANBORG”

    We’ve been talking about the genius that is MANBORG for a few years now, ever since the premiere at Toronto After Dark 2011). We even wrote a raving review of it as it hit theaters late last year alongside the brilliant BIO-COP trailer, also composed by Kostanski. As the film is released in the US on DVD and VOD formats, we thought we’d finally talk to one of the minds behind the MANBORG – Steven Kostanski – and get him to open up about the film and his influences.

    Long Live the New Flesh: Tape Heads, Romancing VHS with Vultra Video

    It’s Friday night, 1988 and you are at the video store with your family. You browse the aisles and you can’t help but be drawn to the lurid images on the VHS box covers in the section your parents won’t let you rent from. As they wander the New Releases, you pretend to be going to the Family section but when the coast is clear, you cut into a dash to Horror. Blood. Skulls. Mutated toxic maniacs. Chainsaw-wielding psychopaths. Monsters and mayhem. You thrill to the covers and wonder what exactly is lurking in these strange films – films so shocking your parents would probably throw a fit if they saw you looking at them, which only makes the experience more thrilling. Since you can’t see the movies, you spend the whole car ride home making them up in your imagination.

    Q&A: Indie splatterfest “MULCH” is making compost

    There is a charm to the cheap and dirty gorefest. Those who turn their noses up at it and pretend to only have the most refined tastes in their monster movie stabfests are kind of crashing bores. For the rest of us, a good cheesy piece of high camp loaded with grotesque practical FX and mom’s minivan hits the spot. Done well, a movie like this takes us back to our glory days of a movie night with good friends and enough karo syrup to choke a Labrador. You can feel the fun the actors are having on screen, their joy is infectious and when the brains start to spray all over the walls in pneumatic jets, everything feels right with the world.

    Women in Horror 2013: The Ladies of Astron-6

    by: Dave Pace on: 2013-02-15 20:34:47

    FATHER’S DAY was a breakout indie hit of
    2012 and finally put the Winnipeg filmmaking collective Astron-6 on the map
    after a long time in the trenches of YouTube shorts and experiments in self-released
    DVDs. A gruesome grindhouse chronicle of a maniac cannibal rapist who only
    targets fathers, and the ragtag bunch on a mission to end his grim legacy, the
    film manages to not just entertain but also drive a message about the politics
    of the rape-revenge genre.
