    Q&A: Max Borenstein on his approach to “GODZILLA” & “GODZILLA: AWAKENING”

    Today, GODZILLA returns to the screen. But the new iteration of the King of the Monsters has already been on shelves for a week or so, as screenwriter Max Borenstein and co-author Greg Borenstein saw to whet our appetites for monster mashing in a prequel graphic novel titled GODZILLA: AWAKENING. Expanding on the 1954 incident only briefly touched on in Gareth Edwards’ new film, AWAKENING accompanies the blockbuster both in mayhem and theme, as characters both on the page and in the cinema try to reconcile their beliefs, acceptance and reactions to a world of giant creatures. Fango spoke to Max Borenstein about the book and what exactly Godzilla represents in the modern world.

    The Trailer for the Bizarre “HORSEHEAD” Is a Must-See

    Nightmare logic seems the order of the day in Romain Basset’s HORSEHEAD (aka FIEVRE), a sleep-centric and dream-fuelled horror story about a young woman repeatedly haunted by a figure called Horsehead and attempting to confront it with bouts of Lucid Dreaming. The resulting first trailer is an enrapturing, bizarre preview for what could become one of the (my) most anticipated horror films of the year.

    First Image: “WAKE WOOD” Director’s “CHERRY TREE”

    Dark Sky Films previously teamed with Ireland’s Fantastic Films on the undervalued WAKE WOOD, a MONKEY’S PAW-influenced bit of folk horror that I find myself recommending often to those looking for something eerie, something bloody and something a little underseen. Exciting news then that the distributor and production company continue their relationship with the Irish outfit on CHERRY TREE, a new film from WAKE WOOD director David Keating, which doesn’t sound far off from the “careful what you wish for” themes of his previous work.

    Refn “BRINGING” Cecil Hotel Horror to the Big Screen

    Nicolas Winding Refn just might be turning his eye to pure horror. A noted fan of genre (he’s producing the MANIAC COP remake and can be found on the new SNUFF Blu singing the film’s praises), Refn’s often violent, nightmarish cinema has brushed right up against our bounds. Thrilling then, he’s apparently sought out directing duties on THE BRINGING, a script initially inspired by the viral video of a young woman in a strange elevator, who was later found dead in a Los Angeles hotel water tower.

    Ben Wheatley’s “HIGH RISE” casts Irons, Miller

    Is there a developing, almost ready-for-production feature more exciting than Ben Wheatley’s brewing adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s seminal HIGH RISE? It goes beyond simply being a new film from Wheatley and co-writer Amy Jump (KILL LIST, A FIELD IN ENGLAND); it’s also poised to be their biggest. The long-gestating project (producer Jeremy Thomas has been trying for years and years) has attracted a stellar cast to its satirical horror story, including Tom Hiddleston and now Jeremy Irons and Sienna Miller.

    Official Trailer: “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” Promises New York Horror

    It often feels that truly thrilling, city-based horror is few and far between, and yet there’s so much anxiety and fear to exploit on packed streets. Will DELIVER US FROM EVIL get it right? The new, lengthier official trailer makes it seem so. Scott Derrickson (SINISTER, THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) went on location in the South Bronx and, alongside some heavy accents, looks to have crafted an ominous tale of possession plaguing urban landscape.
