    Exclusive: first comments/photos from haunted-brothel chiller “THE SLEEPING ROOM”

    Just before Christmas last year, FANGORIA was by the sea in wintry Brighton, UK, visiting the faded-grandeur locations of John Shackleton’s THE SLEEPING ROOM. The film stars Leila Mimmack (young Mary in THE BIBLE and SON OF GOD) as Brighton local Blue, who uncovers the supernatural secrets of the titular chamber as she tugs the threads of a family mystery. She’s pictured in the exclusive first images from the film after the jump, alongside Joseph Beattie (BORGIA), David Sibley (CLOSED CIRCUIT)—and a mysterious scarecrow man…

    Exclusive: Jared Harris Talks “POLTERGEIST” Remake and His New Role

    Jared Harris, a veteran performer who truly broke out with a stunning turn on MAD MEN, has turned his eye to a pair of ghost stories with legacy behind them.

    A History of British Folk Horror

    England is an old country. There’s evidence of us as a Mesolithic people 15,000 years ago, and the beginnings of a settled society, rituals, religious worship and farming – the first Field in England, in fact – in the Neolithic period. The first version of Stonehenge began to be assembled around 2800 BC; the first stones were laid there in 2200 BC; and the final phase started around 1600 BC. We had a society in the Bronze Age, roughly contemporaneous with Homer’s Troy. The Romans invaded in 55 BC.

Stretches of it were so silent that it could have worked as a completely dialogue-free film like Luc Besson’s LE DERNIER COMBAT, and the fact that it paired an American soldier (Rob Freeman) with an indigenous African sergeant (Prince David Osei) gave it at least a suggestion of subtext.

A team is sent in.

    Director and Star Talk “THE DARK TOURIST”

    Maybe you’re planning a vacation this year. Maybe you’re going to London. And maybe while you’re there, the tourist trail will take you by the London Dungeon and the Tower, sites forever imbued with the psychic echoes of past violence, where we’re nevertheless happy to stop and snap a quick selfie. This, believes SOUTHLAND’s Michael Cudlitz, star of the just-released THE DARK TOURIST, means you have more in common with his character Jim Tahna than you might imagine.
