    “POLTERGEIST” gets Parapsychologist in Jane Adams

    It seems Gil Kenan’s upcoming redo of the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg great will find room for both a “Haunted House Cleaner” and a parapsychologist. The former, already announced with Jared Harris starring sounds something of a reality TV showboat. Will the latter, played by HUNG star Jane Adams (seen above in Joe Swanberg’s ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY), be an earnest counterpart?

    “LOVE ETERNAL” (Fantastic Fest Movie Review)

    In the opening scenes of LOVE ETERNAL, Ian Harding (a tender, troubled Robert de Hoog) spends his formative years among the dead. As a child, he plays with his father, running out of range of their walkie-talkies. When he returns, the man lays dead, seated outdoors. Later, midst puberty, Ian finds a popular girl from school hung by her own hand out in the forest. He visits the body endlessly, converses with it– forms a bond. Between these two significant moments in Ian’s life is a main titles sequence that elegantly strides through the countryside. Trees, caves, cliffsides and soil are as much of his foundation as the corpses he finds and socializes with. His conclusion and ours is obvious. Death is natural.

    “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN’s” Main Titles are the Series’ Best Yet

    While I’m sure it speaks to personal taste, it seems the always enticing opening credits of AMERICAN HORROR STORY have reached an apex. A kaleidoscopic journey through witchy symbols, voodoo spells, demonic art, intense costume design, stag heads and pagan rites , the dark groove is even more subdued and the black magick style makes one wish the entire series would be this woodsy and off-putting. Previous comments from creator Ryan Murphy have hinted towards a lighter tone after the often punishing ASYLUM, but if any of the present aesthetic makes its way in, this is 100% exciting.

    See Marina de Van’s “DARK TOUCH” for free!

    Marina de Van’s DARK TOUCH is a grim, provocative tale of the effects of corrupted youth manifesting in violent, psychic ways. Its Irish setting is appropriately Gothic and the places de Van is willing to go, entirely warped. I loved DARK TOUCH earlier this year at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival and as its VOD release approaches (from IFC Midnight) am entirely excited to offer one lucky FANGORIA reader the chance to see the film free on SundanceNow.

    “AMERICAN HORROR STORY” Video: The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans and her appendage

    On this season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, subtitled COVEN thanks to a central focus on warring witches, Angela Bassett essays the real-life figure Marie Laveau. A Voodoo practitioner in 1800s New Orleans, Laveau was said to possess the power of divination, as well as own a pet snake named Zombi. This latest promo for the upcoming series posits she was part snake. Whether that’s just the trailers being reliably weird remains to be seen.
