    Q&A: Director Blair Erickson on Government Experiment-inspired, “BANSHEE CHAPTER”

    After the nearly decade reign of the “torture porn” era, with yearly SAW entries and the deserved reign of the New French Extremity movement, there’s no surprise in the horror community welcoming suspense-driven genre films with open arms. While high tension, low-gore films like THE PURGE, THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 bringing in the highest profits the genre has seen in years, the atmospheric output of filmmakers such as Jim Mickle, Ti West and Ben Wheatley have brought independent horror to an almost classical style of slow burn storytelling. And yet, somewhere in the middle lies BANSHEE CHAPTER, an intense and psychological horror tale that’s spawned from history itself, citing the MK-Ultra experiments of the 50s and 60s as its source of inspiration.

    Is it normal nowadays to approach new work from the revered masters of horror with hopeful caution? Following the underwhelming contributions by former heavy hitters in recent times, it’s not uncommon for a horror fan to cling to hope that there is still more fight in those old dogs. And as new filmmakers attempt (and mostly fail) to bring their iconic properties to a new audience via reboots, reimaginings and remakes, there’s even a sense of desperation that these one-time kings of the macabre may be the last hope at bringing old-school horror back to its roots.

    Audiences will “BEWARE THE NIGHT” a lot sooner

    Even though 2013 has been a successful year for horror overall, Sony Pictures saw underwhelming results for its high-profile CARRIE remake and the YA supernatural adventure THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES. Perhaps taking a lesson from Warner Bros., which had a massive summer success with THE CONJURING, Sony has moved BEWARE THE NIGHT, the next genre offering from SINISTER director Scott Derrickson (pictured above), six months up from its previously scheduled date.

    “AMITYVILLE HORROR: THE LOST TAPES” is dead? Get out!

    Given the great year Blumhouse Productions has had, with two of 2013’s most profitable horror hits—THE PURGE and INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2—it’s a surprise to learn that one major property among the many it’s developing has stalled indefinitely.

The subgenre has become a difficult one to break ground in nowadays, and rather than focus on motivation, many directors have turned to gimmicks, often at the expense of the audience patience and interest.

    Q&A: “MACABRE” Writer/Director Timo Tjahjanto

    The word “rediscovery” is not new to the horror genre, as once a great fright filmmaker enters the cultural awareness, it’s only appropriate that fans dig deeper into their filmography. Sometimes, you find the early work of modern-day master-class auteurs; other times, you discover promising missteps with flashes of greatness interspersed throughout. And occasionally, you come across the origins of a specific perspective, revealing underlying themes, distinctive visuals or simply a penchant for bloody madness.
