    Q&A: Luke Evans makes sure “NO ONE LIVES”

    The brand new bloodbath from stylistic director Ryûhei Kitamura (VERSUS, GODZILLA: FINAL WARS, THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN) is a welcome twist on the slasher. As most would argue you’re identifying with the stalker of these films anyway, NO ONE LIVES (out May 10 in select cities from Anchor Bay) presents its sociopath, the quietly menacing Driver, as your protagonist. It’s his world, the rest of the ensemble is just dying in it. Fango spoke with the film’s psycho killer, Luke Evans, about the movie, the inner workings of his character and all of the nasty fun he seemed to have on set.

    “THALE” (DVD/Blu-ray Review)

    THALE is a lovely film, epitomized by its titular creature, which is a gorgeous one indeed. Written and directed by Aleksander Nordaas and based on Norwegian folk tales of cow-tailed temptresses called Huldra, THALE (on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo from XLrator Media) takes a classic-monsters approach to its story, evoking empathy for the sheltered, experimented-on beauty (Silje Reinåmo) as well as the best-friend duo who discover her.

  • Trailer: Take your first look “UNDER THE BED”

    Steven C. Miller, who just last year brought us both THE AGGRESSION SCALE and loose Santa slasher redo is entering more monstrous territory with Amblin creature feature throwback UNDER THE BED.

    The increasingly prolific indie filmmaker tells the story of “the monster under the bed. Neal Hausman’s mistake was trying to fight it. Neal (Jonny Weston) has returned from a two-year exile following his tragic attempt to defeat the monster, only to find his father ticking ever closer to a breakdown, a new stepmother who fears him, and his little brother Paul (Gattlin Griffith), terrorized by the same monster. While Neal and Paul work together to try and fight the nocturnal menace, their parents are taking desperate measures to get the family back to normal. With no support from their parents, the brothers have nothing to rely on but each other, and courage beyond belief.”

    XLRATOR Media, who also has the Soska Sisters’ AMERICAN MARY on the way, releases UNDER THE BED July 19. [The Wrap]

    Horror cares. The genre’s fan base knows devotion and support and I knew very soon after the terrible Boston Marathon bombings that both something horror-related and something hardcore-related would give aid.

    BBC’s Zombie series “IN THE FLESH” hitting U.S. this June

    In February we got glimpses of IN THE FLESH, a UK series with a zombie protagonist preparing to re-enter the world at large. Now, as is often the case, the show will hit our shores via BBC America this June.

    In what looked especially interesting as a decently fresh take on a decidedly not-so-fresh subgenre, IN THE FLESH’s outbreak is referred to as PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome). “The series follows 18-year-old Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a PDS sufferer who, now treated with the medication Neurolax, is deemed ready to return to his parents’ home in the small village of Roarton. Since the passing of the PDS Protection act, the government has set an agenda of acceptance and tolerance, one that is at odds with the communities abandoned at the time of The Rising, and the bloody battle between zombies and humans that ensued. A cauldron of brutal anti-zombie sentiment boils in Roarton, the home of the ‘rotter’ hating Human Volunteer Force (HVF). Can Kieren’s neighbors forgive him for what he did in his untreated state? More importantly can Kieren forgive himself?”

    IN THE FLESH is set to premiere in miniseries form on Thursday, June 6 at 10 p.m. You can see a trailer above.
