    Q&A: Director Seth Grossman on “INNER DEMONS”

    What qualifies a director as right for his/her specific job as a filmmaker? Is it technical skill, as in being able to create an exciting or provocative visual rhythm from any given camera? Is it endurance, as in being able to keep cool and confident under the pressures of the hustle-and-bustle on-set experience? Or is it a cinematic voice, as in being a master storyteller with an innate and unique understanding of your characters?

    In a way, for INNER DEMONS director Seth Grossman, it’s a mixture of all three but with one very specific advantage: his experience in both reality television and the world of horror. Grossman previously scared fright fans with THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT: REVELATIONS, a competent thriller in its own right that added a very interesting procedural spin on the franchise. But it’s Grossman’s work on the reality show INTERVENTION which makes him the right man to direct INNER DEMONS, a found footage horror that presents elements of possession horror through the eyes of a recovery reality show. Talking to FANGORIA, Grossman opened up on INNER DEMONS and what it’s like to create horror from a hot-button issue…

    Fango Flashback: “FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN”

    Listen, I know it’s “cool” to hate on FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN. I get it. The “Manhattan” angle is gimmicky, or you have a problem with its logic, or you might be one of those horror fans who hate any FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel after PART IV. But if you think that justifies calling it a bad film, or if you’re even actively hating on JASON TAKES MANHATTAN, you are all sorts of wrong.

    “STERLING FOREST: FOREST OF FEAR” (Haunt Review)

    Having grown up in the New York / New Jersey area, there are certain parts of my childhood that still run wild within today and never cease to evoke my most fondest memories. Among them include the Warwick Drive-In, one of the last theaters of its kind, and Sterling Forest, the wooded home to the ever-festive Renaissance Fair in Tuxedo, NY. Yet during the Halloween season, Sterling Forest turns into something completely different and all the more tempting: THE FOREST OF FEAR.

    “INNER DEMONS” (Film Review)

    It’s no surprise that indie horror has embraced found footage, considering the leeway given by the shooting style and low budgets. For every independent release, there also seems to be a new justification for the found footage element, often times presented as a gimmick to differentiate from the fan-repellent studio fare. Sometimes, that gimmick is precisely the reason why the film is so effective; not just in ingenuity but in execution as well. Such is the case for Seth Grossman’s INNER DEMONS, a found footage possession film that is a little familiar and a little goofy, but also genuinely engaging.

    “HANNIBAL: SEASON TWO” (Blu-ray Review)

    Despite ratings that pale to those of THE WALKING DEAD, there’s little doubt that Bryan Fuller’s HANNIBAL is more fun than any horror show currently on television. By existing in its own universe and playing by its own logic, HANNIBAL is able to deliver excellent drama, tremendous performances and some of the most shocking gore ever presented on network television. Beyond that, HANNIBAL is a show of utter confidence; often delving into the surreal and perturbed, the show trusts it’s audience to go along for the journey no matter what weird direction they may be taken.
