  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage “EVIL DEAD” Behind-The-Scenes Footage!

    ,,

    It might be a cliche, but there’s something magical about homemade horror filmmaking. Personally speaking, I remember running around a campground for a Video 101 assignment, camcorder in tow, filming a faux trailer for a serial killer thriller with nothing but whoever and whatever I could assemble on a Friday night in the middle of winter. And while that stupid, stupid movie has been lost in time, I’ll never forget how exhilarating and fun the process was, and how much that memory still stands out nearly seven years later.

  • Stephen King’s “CELL” joins “31” at Saban Films

    ,

    Over the past year, the distribution game has changed rather radically in the independent film world. While studios devote more and more resources to blockbusters and tentpole films, smaller distributors with more radical release strategies have found solid footing by betting on the strength of their output. Entities such as STX and A24 have established their reputation with releases such as THE WITCH, THE GIFT and GREEN ROOM, and now, Saban Films looks to join them with a growing genre slate that includes Rob Zombie’s 31 and now, as per The Hollywood Reporter, Tod William’s adaptation of Stephen King’s CELL.

  • “THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As much sense as it may make to a marketing executive or producer, having the name of a horror icon attached to your film is actually somewhat of a risky proposition. By associating a film with someone who is known and beloved by genre films, expectations will understandably be raised, which could work as a double-edged sword if those standards are not met. And in the case of Nick Simon’s THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, having that attachment be the final credit in the prolific career of Wes Craven (who served as executive producer) is an even larger shadow to shine through in the eyes of horror enthusiasts.

  • Stream to Scream: “HE NEVER DIED”

    ,,

    There’s something effortlessly refreshing about films that confidently reside in their own universe. By offering characters with established history, rapport, and relationships, watching their stories unfold has an immersive quality that more grounded, gritty fare just cannot capture. Therefore, when something like HE NEVER DIED comes around and offers up a supernatural horror comedy that lives somewhere between JOHN WICK and TWIN PEAKS, it’s all the more of a twisted treat than your standard terror titles.

  • Exclusive Q&A: Director Nick Simon talks Craven, Killers & “THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS”

    ,

    Last year, the horror world lost one of its most beloved icons: filmmaker Wes Craven, the man behind such chilling classics as THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, SCREAM and more. Not only was Craven a fantastic artist in his own right, but he was an incredibly generous man in the world of horror, helping as producer to shepherd the directorial careers of Robert Kurtzman, Patrick Lussier, and John Gulager. And before his untimely passing, Craven helped to bring one final cinematic vision to the screen, ushering up-and-coming filmmaker Nick Simon for THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS.

  • FANGO Flashback: “LAKE MUNGO”

    ,,

    While much can be said about the stylistic and tonal differences between faux-doc horror and found footage, the most prominent difference between the subgenres is the illusion of transparency. As any genre fan can tell you, found footage does its damnedest to downplay transparency, playing everything mostly straight-faced and therefore crafting many of the tired, repetitive trademarks of those films. However, faux-doc horror works so well because it appears to be on-the-level with the audience, offering multiple perspectives, editing, music and an atmosphere of truth that informs the execution.

  • NYC! See “YOU’RE NEXT” On The Big Screen And Win A Mondo Vinyl Soundtrack LP!

    ,

    For this writer’s money, there’s few horror offerings in the new millennium that offered as much simultaneous fun and tension than Adam Wingard’s YOU’RE NEXT. Criminally underappreciated at the time of its release, I have to admit that it’s been satisfying to watch YOU’RE NEXT’s audience build since it’s 2013 release, and even more satisfying to see Wingard & Barrett emerge as top talents in the genre since. However, if you’re in the cult audience of YOU’RE NEXT and missed out on catching it theatrically, you’re in luck: not only is Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers bringing YOU’RE NEXT back to the big screen next week, but one fright fan will be going home with the new limited edition Mondo YOU’RE NEXT vinyl LP!
