    UK-based horror filmmaker Melanie Light (ESCAPE), who we last mentioned for taking part in a very neat 2014 horror-centric Calendar, is preparing another brutal exercise in short terror, THE HERD. With aims to be transgressive, visceral, and imbued with vegan themes, it stands the film—which “inflicts the life of the average dairy cow on to a group of human women”—would require an appropriately dark score.

    Full Trailer: NBC’s “ROSEMARY’S BABY” Miniseres

    NBC’s upcoming four-hour miniseries remake of ROSEMARY’S BABY is certainly a curiosity. With Polanski’s classic film being almost notoriously faithful to Ira Levin’s original novel, it seems the new adaptation almost must make drastic changes. The new Paris setting is surely one, and peppered within the first, full trailer for the Agnieszka Holland-directed series are others, alongside more iconic moments that will surely be familiar.

    Stanley Film Festival ’14: Haunted History and Happenings of The Stanley

    As far as brilliant and appropriate settings go, it’s almost hard to believe The Stanley Film Festival—a horror film festival of screenings and particularly haunting happenings—is only in its second year. This being the first that FANGORIA is attending in an official capacity, both as press and bringing our monthly LA-based Dead Right Horror Trivia Night (co-hosted with Shock Till You Drop), there’s a particular thrill in the air for this writer. A lodge with a storied past, not least of which inspiring one of the most seminal horror stories of our time (THE SHINING), hosting a celebration of the types of tales we admire and pledge allegiance to, feels church-like. It also feels particularly inviting of the Stanley’s ghostly reputation, as if we’re all silently daring ourselves and its deep, historic halls to confront each other. Is this where we go beyond the pale?

    The strange, strange, exhilarating Dutch piece of work BORGMAN has been confirmed for a June release from Drafthouse Films. And so, comes its official U.S. trailer, one that highlights and sells the film’s more frightening, uneasy qualities; hopefully so that its dark comedy and destabilizing, surreal nature hit even harder when seen in full.
