    An Italian Horror Excerpt from Kier-La Janisse and Paul Corupe’s “KID POWER!” Book

    Kier-La Janisse and Paul Corupe, the heads of psychotronic film site Spectacular Optical are attempting to brand the SpecOp name out into a series of cinema-centric books. If you’re familiar with either of their published work—Janisse as the author of the amazing HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN or Corupe over at Canuxploitation!—you’ll understand the thrill in this prospect. Their first project is an anthology of essays entitled KID POWER!, focused on “child empowerment in film and television.” I’ve previously noted just how exciting and vital this can likely be to cinephiles, and as their IndieGoGo campaign hits the home stretch, am happy to give you a peek inside the book, as well as one last push to get a great piece of film writing out into the world.

    Zombie Activists Attack in First Scene from BBC’s “IN THE FLESH” Season Two

    BBC America’s IN THE FLESH has, alongside French series THE RETURNED, garnered acclaim for being one of the more novel pieces of undead fiction in the current, oversaturated climate. The series’ first season took an interesting look at a post-zombie apocalypse in which those transformed were being rehabilitated and assimilating back into society, with plenty of social commentary-informed bumps along the way. Season Two premieres this month and opens with an attack by the Undead Liberation Army and marks the first instance in which I ever took something like the term “zombie terrorists” seriously.

    “BLOOD GLACIER” (Movie Review)

    You’d have to search far and wide for a genre filmmaker not influenced by John Carpenter, and more specifically THE THING. The legendary filmmaker’s arctic account of an assimilating, parasitic lifeform is a masterpiece of paranoia and puppetry, deftly blending looming atmosphere and existential angst with holy shit creature FX. Post-THE THING, the ensuing struggle between filmmaking and fandom, which is arguably a hurdle for horror filmmakers more than any other type, often leaves little else besides the impact and homage. A pleasant surprise then, that Austrian director Marvin Kren’s similarly snowbound creature feature BLOOD GLACIER isn’t just the sum of its favorite films.

    EXCL Images: Snowbound Creature Feature, “BLOOD GLACIER”

Clearly in the vein of the Antarctic-set John Carpenter classic THE THING, BLOOD GLACIER manages to be more than the sum of its influence, and ends up altogether an atmospheric, pulpy and very fun mash of practical, hybrid animal monsters. Fango has two exclusive images to share from the film, in anticipation of its debut.
