    Two New “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2″ TV Spots

    FilmDistrict has been forceful in their unleashing of clips, spots and trailers for the upcoming sequel to James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s  fantastic 2011 creeper. It makes sense, of course, considering Wan just had a monster hit with the also fantastic THE CONJURING. It also seems appropriate considering INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 looks to be something of a forceful, assaulting film. The latest brief previews show off an expected style-heavy film with a funhouse, forward motion tone.

    Trailer: Jim Mickle’s eerie reimagining of “WE ARE WHAT WE ARE”

    STAKE LAND director Jim Mickle and co-writer/actor Nick Damici have recrafted Jorge Michel Grau’s excellent Mexican cannibal film WE ARE WHAT WE ARE . Once a story about masculinity and extreme poverty, Mickle and Damici have transported the tale to the U.S. and made a worthy companion, finding their own themes and aesthetic throughout. Both that picturesque American Gothic and the strong undercurrent of American tradition are on display in the film’s first trailer.

    In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the rural Parker family loses their matriarch in an illness and weather-spurred tragedy. It’s the weekend of an annual religious ritual however, and the now-in-charge Iris (Ambyr Childers) and her younger sister Rose (Julia Garner, ELECTRICK CHILDREN) must grapple with whether to break tradition, a forceful hurricane and a neighbor who’s begun to uncover their secret.

    I loved WE ARE WHAT WE ARE out of Sundance and still think it’s one of the best horror films this year. EOne releases this grim, beautiful picture on September 27. IGN premiered the trailer. For more, see Fango’s review and the film’s official Facebook.

    EXCL Clip: Danielle Harris’ Dinner Party Gone Wrong, “AMONG FRIENDS”

    A group of friends are violently forced to confront how close they really aren’t, all the while adorned in 80s-themed get ups, in the directorial debut of genre mainstay Danielle Harris (HALOWEEN 4 & 5, STAKE LAND, HATCHET II).  AMONG FRIENDS finds a glittery dinner party meant to recall teased hair and lacey-era Madonna crudely interrupted by a friend hell bent on celebrating their past misdeeds instead. FANGORIA presents an exclusive clip from the film, in which Alyssa Lobit makes her points with harsh words and illegal substance.

    Robin Hardy’s restored “THE WICKER MAN: THE FINAL CUT” to hit U.S. Theaters this fall

    After a wide search by director Robin Hardy and StudioCanal proved fruitful, the Christopher Lee-starring classic THE WICKER MAN has been restored to the filmmaker’s original 92-minute vision. Coming together rather quickly, THE WICKER MAN: THE FINAL CUT is slated to hit UK cinemas and Blu-ray this fall, leaving stateside fans to wonder when they’d get an official look. Fortunately, the answer is also this fall.

    Q&A: Paul Davis on Horror/Comedy FrightFest Premiere, “THE BODY”

    For many, Halloween is a night to be anyone they want. For The Man, it’s an occasion to be exactly who he is and receive otherwise untypical praise for it. That’s exactly how Paul Davis’ latest short, THE BODY plays out. World Premiering as part of the acclaimed Film4 FrightFest in London, the film stars GAME OF THRONES’ Alfie Allen as a black-suited murderer transporting a corpse out in the open, where most assume it’s an elaborate contribution to All Hallow’s activities. An evening of horror and humor (of the gallows sort) ensues. Fango spoke with Davis (BEWARE THE MOON:  REMEMBERING AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) as he begins to carry THE BODY through its festival life.

    “ANGST”: The Crucial, Unreleased Home Invasion Classic

    In the opening moments of Gerald Kargl’s ANGST, a wildly imbalanced, frightfully impulsive killer is getting out of prison. As he’s escorted by guards, the camera which will serve as a significant source of frenzy throughout what’s to come, stylishly glides below him. It’s no traditional position of power, however. Tracking from the back and low, the viewer’s sensation is that of being dragged by the unnamed psychopath. We are now, however unwillingly, physically attached to him and through his constant narration, confined to his headspace as well. We’ve no place to go but to watch however this will play out. And that is, as one of the most powerful home invasion films out there.
