    LONDON! Kim Newman intros rare 35mm screening of Donald Cammell’s “WHITE OF THE EYE”

    Donald Cammell really should be talked about in genre circles much more than he is. The visionary behind PERFORMANCE (a collaboration with Nicolas Roeg), DEMON SEED, WILD SIDE and even my personal guilty pleasure, THE TOUCHABLES, Cammell’s output was sporadic but powerful. His shamefully underappreciated 80s serial killer film WHITE OF THE EYE gets its due on Thursday June 13th when UK horror author and critic Kim Newman gives it some context at London’s Prince Charles Cinema.

    Q+A: The Director of “CHUCK NORRIS VS.COMMUNISM” talks 80s exploitation, media revolution and Indiegogo

    Q+A: Director Andy Stewart talks chunk-blower “DYSMORPHIA”, screening this weekend!

    Glasgow-based horror crit Andy Stewart’s debut short film DYSMORPHIA has been hitting gag reflexes all over the festival circuit since it premiered at Manchester’s Grimmfest last fall. Often paired with the Soska Sisters’ AMERICAN MARY, which shares its gruesome penchant for DIY surgery, DYSMORPHIA is something of a showstopper itself. A Man. A Room. A Decision; a modest setup, but one, I assure you,  you will not soon forget.

    Andy Stewart talks to FANGO about his transition from critic to director, the pleasures of body horror, and gives us a tease at what his follow-up plans are.
