    “THE RAID’s” Gareth Evans Talks Possible Horror Feature

    With THE RAID and the forthcoming ultraviolent epic THE RAID 2, Gareth Evans has certainly cemented himself as a master of modern action cinema. Last year however, he also managed to blow audience’s minds with “Safe Haven,” a short horror film co-directed by Timo Tjahjanto, in found footage anthology V/H/S/2. The short focused on an Indonesian cult and revealed the same go-for-broke madness found in THE RAID movies, but tuned to a truly insane, Fulci-like dial. Naturally, we’re hoping Evans makes a return to the genre, and when speaking with the filmmaker about the intensely bloody THE RAID 2, FANGORIA asked if he’s inclined to make an all-out horror picture.

    New “OCULUS” Poster Goes Through the Looking Glass

    Allow me to express this sentiment again: Mike Flanagan’s OCULUS is a very highly anticipated horror film here. Having delivered the terrific, eerie ABSENTIA, and coupled with stunning festival word (including from Fango’s own Chris Alexander), it seems Flanagan has something special on his hands and each new piece of art ratchets up anticipation. A new one sheet has arrived, illustrating the otherworldly nature of this accursed mirror that haunts the film and its characters, and even sort of reminds me of the end of PRINCE OF DARKNESS.

    EXCL Clip: Zombie Thriller, “THE RETURNED”

    It’s refreshing in an oversaturated undead climate to see some films and series attempt to get back to one of the more interesting aspects of zombie cinema: allegory. Romero’s DEAD films are legendary and part of their greatness comes from the willingness to engage the audience and discuss their lives and the world surrounding them. Manuel Carballo’s new film THE RETURNED is also looking to push zombies into a thoughtful arena, crafting a world where the outbreak has come and gone and is now treatable.

    Exclusive “Old School” TV Spot for “Old School” Horror, “ALMOST HUMAN”

    Joe Begos’ upcoming ALMOST HUMAN has more going for it than just Carpenter font. It’s “old school” in a way that doesn’t feel reaching, or desperate to show off its influence. There’s little interest in homage. Instead, it’s a brisk, lo-fi, gory, gooey marriage of the slasher and an alien abduction that manages to genuinely feel like old-fashioned, bloody fun. This TV spot for it however, is directly recalling a time when we didn’t just watch movie ads on the internet. Boasting words from RE-ANIMATOR and FROM BEYOND director/horror hero Stuart Gordon and flashing plenty of the murderous, extraterrestrial mayhem on display, this FANGORIA exclusive will get you in the proper mood.

    DVDetails: Out-There Found Footage “MR. JONES”

    One of the more divisive midnighters of last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, the docu-style MR. JONES aims to get a bit strange with the medium, resulting in one of the more unique uses of an oversaturated technique. Anchor Bay has acquired the film for North American theatrical and home release, and now you’ll get to see the strange picture for yourself.

    Clip: Eerie Games Afoot in UK Horror “IN FEAR”

    There’s an interesting story behind the making of director Jeremy Lovering’s UK chiller IN FEAR. At its premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the filmmaker revealed that at any given time, really only he and actor Allen Leech truly knew what was going on, or what was going to happen. It’s a fun context for the mind games and type of malevolent hide-and-seek Leech’s character plays with road tripping couple Tom and Lucy (Iain De Caestecker and Alice Englert, respectively), one that’s often eerie within the film and adds a layer of internal debate outside of it. You can get a taste of such a scene, and ask yourself who knew what during it below.
