    Less is More in Creepy “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” Teaser

    Have you ever experienced true evil? It’s a question posed in this first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s moody follow-up to the successful and impressive SINISTER, DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Rodriguez, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, and based off the true stories of NYPD Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, DELIVER US FROM EVIL seems like a much bigger production than SINISTER, even if the latter half of the trailer is evident of the tonality and minimalism of his last film.

    Fango Flashback: Verhoeven’s “ROBOCOP” (1987)

    Being from the younger generation of today’s cinephiles, there’s a certain pool of veteran filmmakers that I’d love to see deliver one more passion-fueled film before calling it quits. With Hollywood becoming more tentpole-focused however, it’s unlikely to imagine a world where subversive genre filmmakers such as John Carpenter, David Lynch and Paul Verhoeven would get that chance to relive their bloody glory days. Thus is the nature of the business, but still, there’s such an exhilaration from revisiting their work that the absence of new, well-funded films from these filmmakers leaves a hole in the world of imaginative onscreen storytelling. In the case of Paul Verhoeven, who is still working busier than ever outside of the US Hollywood system, that return to the system that brought us classic sci-fi gorefests like TOTAL RECALL, STARSHIP TROOPERS and ROBOCOP always seems to be coasting on the horizon as his films are neutered in mega-budgeted, misguided PG-13 remakes.

    Fango Flashback: “TOTAL RECALL” (1990)

    After making a splash with the ultraviolent sci-fi satire ROBOCOP, it’s not a giant shock that Verhoeven’s next blockbuster venture would be the Philip K. Dick adaptation TOTAL RECALL, which paired the unpredictable director with one of Hollywood’s most reliable action stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger. In a way, the pairing is somewhat perfect, matching two of Hollywood’s most promising imports and vibrant personalities to create a film about a surreal identity crisis. The casting of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a common construction worker stuck in a world of intergalactic espionage and sabotage was bizarre yet appropriate, and as such, he simultaneously delivers one of his most over-the-top performances, while being somewhat restrained and emotionally conflicted. Somehow, Verhoeven strikes gold with Schwarzenegger, who is brave and grateful enough to dive into another one of the director’s living universes, although this time much more alien in nature.

    “HAUNT” (Movie Review)

    Sometimes, when telling a story about the afterlife, there’s an inherent understanding that plot and character can fall by the wayside in the name of pure, visceral terror. This particular subgenre is one of the oldest and easiest to execute, and thus there’s only so much in the way of originality and personality one can bring to ghost movies—essentially forcing filmmakers to choose style over substance. But if a horror story devotes itself solely to eliciting fear and subverting expectations, how much or easily can one forgive a lack of novelty or inspiration?
