    [Sundance 2014] EXCL Images, Comments: “JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD”

    Easily the most recognizable of American festivals, it’s exciting that the 2014 edition of Sundance is so genre-heavy.  There’s of course the highly anticipated midnight section, but beyond that is a selection of several bits of horror scattered through the likes of NEXT, Premieres and, in the case of the below film, the U.S. Dramatic Competition. FANGORIA Presents an exclusive look at JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD, a brand new horror film rooted in the experience of youth from THE RUINS director Carter Smith.

    Fake Trailer to Feature Film: The First Look at “CLOWN” is Here

    You may remember not too long ago, a trailer for a fake film from Eli Roth was rapidly shared around film sites. Titled CLOWN, the short piece previewed a picture in which a father finds himself unable to take off the clown costume he dons for his son’s birthday party. The difference however, between this and so many faux coming attractions, was aside from the Roth nod, there was little in the way of false grindhouse winking. CLOWN looked like a film we, and apparently Eli Roth, wanted to see.

    FANGORIA Screamers: Jeff Tuttle’s “CATHEXIS”

    For FANGORIA Screamers, the New Year means new talent. Currently the vocalist of of Detroit heavy weird punks Old Gods and formerly of notorious metal outfit The Dillinger Escape Plan—and even an occasional resident here at FANGORIA—director Jeff Tuttle is relatively young in the moviemaking game. Still, his work is dripping in black ooze, as well as assurance and boldness, looking to prod what makes our skin crawl and minds warp.

    [Sundance 2014] Full “KILLERS” Trailer: Bonded by Murder

    World Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in just over a week, the new film from the Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel) looks to present a tale of two men brought together by violent impulse. While the film’s latest, full trailer isn’t as graphic as the strobing teaser we previously shined a light on, it’s no less enticing of what’s hopefully a thrilling, gruesome portrait of male competition… and a little bit of bromance.

    New Photos: Bana and Ramirez in Derrickson’s “DELIVER US FROM EVIL”

    DELIVER US FROM EVIL is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated major horror titles of 2014. Not only is it director Scott Derrickson’s follow-up to the highly praised SINISTER, but it’s slated for early July, a month that was a wonderful fit for 2013’s THE CONJURING and one that boasts confidence in the film on Sony’s part. Not to mention, Jaume Collet-Serra’s awesome ORPHAN did pretty well for itself there in summer 2009. Thirdly, and this is entirely more specific to me, DELIVER US FROM EVIL was shot on location, and takes place in, The Bronx. Hometown horror is a highly exciting prospect, and moreover, good, urban, city-based horror is all too rare.

    IFC Midnight Releases No-Frills Alien Slasher, “ALMOST HUMAN” this February

    Throwback is a dangerous proposition in our game. Often, horror films made by horror fans are then marred by devotion to their favorite films. Homage gets in the way, leaving a sour taste and a failed film. Here’s why ALMOST HUMAN is refreshing, and not what I’ve just described: It’s affection and knowledge of genre is clear, without direct, explicit reference to the films it and filmmakers Joe Begos and Josh Ethier love. It’s a brisk, simple mesh of slasher and alien abduction whose lack of bullshit allows the room to get fun, and get weird.

    First Look: SEGA’s “ALIEN: ISOLATION”

    The concept is something of a no-brainer. While James Cameron’s lauded sequel and its balls to the wall aesthetic might be more suited to an action-heavy experience, there’s an entirely rich, haunting atmosphere to be mined from Ridley Scott’s original, better ALIEN film. Dripping with steam and dread, ALIEN’s original intent is as noble as ever and provides just one reason why SEGA and the team at Creative Assembly crafted the latest series game in its image. This isn’t that action-heavy experience. With ALIEN: ISOLATION, they want to scare the shit out of you.

    Trailer: Darkly Comic Slamdance Thriller “GOLDBERG & EISENBERG”

    Israel’s entrance into the international genre cinema game has been bold, fearless and absolutely thrilling. RABIES and subsequently this year’s BIG BAD WOLVES from directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado are fierce, absurd thrillers chronicling how we never fail to get in our own way.

Now available on VOD and coming to Blu-ray and DVD this month, FANGORIA presents an exclusive look at an accompanying special feature, in which actors Bill Sage and Julia Garner talk the bloody set-piece and dive into both the reality of shooting it and their characters’ mindsets.
