    Fango editor Chris Alexander goes a “DEVIL’S MILE”

    Outside of sitting as Fango’s tireless chief, Chris Alexander is also a tireless macabre music maker and he’ll be doing just that in Joe O’Brien’s upcoming bit of crime horror, DEVIL’S MILE.

    The film, working with the classic criminals-cum-victims structure finds a trio of kidnappers who take an ill-advised detour en route to deliver their hostages, two teenage girls, to their mysterious and powerful employer.  When they accidentally kill one of the girls during a botched escape attempt, their simmering mistrust explodes into shocking violence.  But what they thought was their worst case scenario is only the beginning, as they are engulfed by the hellish forces that haunt the road, a road they realize they may never escape.  Now captors and captive must fight together to escape the monstrous forces pursuing them and somehow survive…

    “I always think of myself as a musician first, with my writing and now, image-making being an extension of an emotional connection I have to sound and rhythm,” says Alexander, who previously scored the Stephen King-based short ONE FOR THE ROAD and his own directing debut, BLOOD FOR IRINA.  “Having the honor to tackle Joe’s first film is exciting for me because he has always understood how potent music is in horror, how it can be just as, if not often more so, as vital a character in a film as the cast. Devil’s Mile is a dirty, claustrophobic and highly original genre flick. It’s been a joy splashing my sounds all over it, being able to articulate my musical impression over Joe’s very specific vision. Hopefully this is one of many more projects to come.”

    O’Brienm who’s written for both Fango and Rue Morgue, adds, “I’ve long been an admirer of Chris’s work as a writer, scholar and cheerleader for the horror genre, and I was a big fan of his album MUSIC FOR MURDER.  So when the opportunity arose to bring his dark creative sensibilities to the project, I jumped at it. We share a common language of horror movies and movie music.  I told him I was looking for something in the vein of the PRINCE OF DARKNESS score by way of PROFONDO ROSSO-era Goblin, and Chris just smiled and nodded and replied ‘You want a darker BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA.’  He’s a perfect fit for the film.”

    Trailer: “SIMON KILLER” director puts you in “THE RED” with new short

    Borderline Films comprises the filmmakers behind artfully unsettling pictures like AFTERSCHOOL, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE and most recently, SIMON KILLER. And while those films are already enthusiastically covered by the likes of Fango, it seems director Antonio Campos and collaborators Sean Durkin and Josh Mond are pouring effort into something more traditionally horrific: a short entitled THE RED.

    A Brilliant Holiday: The U.S. trailer for Ben Wheatley’s “SIGHTSEERS”

    It’s admittedly not all that different from its previous trailer, but it’s a wonderfully cut clip for a wonderful movie. This U.S. preview for Ben Wheatley’s latest does a perfect job of capturing the entirely hilarious, engrossing tale of a ginger-faced man and an angry woman on a murderous, particularly British road trip.

    Q&A: Brady Corbet & no philosophy of a “SIMON KILLER”

    Both hypnotic and frightening, SIMON KILLER (out April 5 in select theaters and on VOD April 12) is a film I readily refer to as a sociopathic odyssey (see Fango’s review here). The titular college-aged student abroad in Paris is something of a primal, fickle blank slate but, as with most psychologically unsettling characters, there’s something recognizable as well. Lead actor Brady Corbet who, together with director Antonio Campos, shaped the role confirms as much when throughout our conversation about personality traits and soundtrack choices, points to the film as a reaction against the ever aggressive, dissociative  and misogynistic  world view of today’s young men.
