    Exclusive Interview: Jeffrey Combs Returns to Play Poe in “NEVERMORE”

    Like a lightning rod striking from a demon’s view of storm clouds, Jeffrey Combs embodies Edgar Allan Poe in NEVERMORE. The one-man stage show, coming to the Boston area this Friday, Halloween night, features a sparse set with Combs at its center—commanding the text and the audience, ranting, yearning, recreating and elaborating on material from speaking engagements Poe himself performed throughout these United States.

    Q&A: Quebecois Filmmaker Izabel Grondin on Her Extreme Cinematic Art

    Izabel Grondin’s short film THE TABLE (a.k.a. LA TABLE, pictured above) recently made it into the pre-selection for the Jutra Awards, Quebec’s Oscars that celebrate the best of the province’s cinema. This is no small feat, in that Grondin’s piece was up against over 173 of Quebec’s finest shorts. Also wonderful for cinephiles of a transgressive sort is THE TABLE’s content; as usual, Grondin has produced a work of great beauty, brutality and BDSM, and to see this sort of art recognized at such a prestigious level—that it can be taken seriously and admired as art—bodes well for extreme cinema.

    Q&A: Jon Schnepp on “ABCs OF DEATH,” Part One

    The ABC’s of Death (now available on DVD and Blu-ray) is an alphabetized mind fuck through 36 gonzo, gory, and grim horror vignettes, each directed by a noted genre name. The “W” installment, WTF, was handled by Jon Schnepp, known for his work on METALOCALYPSE for which he’s produced, directed and developed the character design. ABC’s is his first foray into being a horror filmmaker, which seems to be where it’s at for this lifelong fan. The style in WTF, inspired by his great admiration for EVIL DEAD II, is definitely “splatstick” and “kitchen sink,” but there is more than one type of horror in Schnepp’s black metal heart. He adores body horror and would love to terrify in the tradition of both Cronenberg and Carpenter (e.g. THE THING). Schnepp was stoked to share his love and enthusiasm of all things geek with Fango.
