    Kino’s ongoing transfer of the work of Mario Bava to Blu-ray presents not only a celebration of the Italian master’s filmography, but a way to gorge and gain perspective on a filmmaker that’s gone on to influence so much. I did as such last year, upon release of BLACK SUNDAY, HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON and LISA & THE DEVIL.

    Voodoo Doll? The second teaser for “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN”

    I’d hope we all know what to expect here. Over the next many weeks, a series of artful, most likely terribly strange teasers for the highly anticipated third season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY (subtitled COVEN) will debut online. Some will be fun to pick apart, others will be wonderful just to look at. The second is here, and seems to nod toward the Voodoo aspect of the New Orleans-set season.

    Q&A: Sebastián Silva and the Paranoid Atmosphere of “MAGIC MAGIC”

    Sebastián Silva, aided by a truly remarkable performance from Juno Temple, turns MAGIC MAGIC (now available on DVD from Sony) into a movie where its paranoid atmosphere seeps out and permeates the audience watching it. It’s something undeniably strange, oddly funny in certain moments and head-to-toe unsettling at others. It can be both simultaneously, and most often exclusively the latter. A tale predicated on uncertainty, Alicia (Temple) has little physical sense of where she is and is subsequently losing a mental grasp, as well. FANGORIA spoke with Silva about creating this ever-nervous world, the nature of horror, urban myth and his fear of a misleading trailer.
