His company, Black Fawn Distribution, is in the business of releasing exciting new Canadian horror films, such as the acclaimed SILENT RETREAT and DISCOPATH. Archibald works as a director, screenwriter and producer for Black Fawn Films, which he co-owns with fellow multi-hyphenates Christopher Giroux and Cody Callahan.

    When it comes to next year’s surprisingly sparse horror slate, few films are as highly anticipated as Leigh Whannell’s directorial debut, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3. With Whannell’s prolific slate as a scribe and actor in the horror genre, it was only a matter of time before he found his way into the director’s chair, and what better chance than to take over on the terrifying franchise he has personally guided? And with James Wan’s very specific cinematic vision, fans of the franchise are excited to see what Whannell can bring to the table both narratively and stylistically.

    Q&A: Alexandre Aja on “HORNS”, “THE PYRAMID”

    What kind of filmmaker do horror fans think of when they hear the name “Alexandre Aja?” Some think of the French master of brutality, who was able to translate the voice of the French Extreme Horror movement into English with his remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES. Some think of a versatile, if underrated, filmmaker, who can churn out films as different as HIGH TENSION, MIRRORS and PIRANHA 3D. And others still are more familiar with his producing work, adding his own unique tonal variation to the slasher genre with films like P2 and the lauded MANIAC remake.

    Q&A: Daniel Radcliffe on “HORNS”, “FRANKENSTEIN”

    For those keeping tabs on the world of horror as intently as FANGORIA, there’s few actors who have been as curiously intertwined in the genre as Daniel Radcliffe, the former HARRY POTTER actor who has since lined up an impressive and interesting resume of fright flicks.

    Q&A: The Vicious Brothers talk “EXTRATERRESTRIAL”

    There are few horror debuts that have been as divisive as GRAVE ENCOUNTERS, the found footage haunter from Tribeca favorites The Vicious Brothers, the alias of filmmaking duo Stuart Ortiz and Colin Minihan. While that film has gone on to various degrees of cult acclaim and notoriety, The Vicious Brothers amped the scale considerably for their follow-up, the alien abduction film EXTRATERRESTRIAL. With a bigger cast and bigger budget, the Minihan-directed film written by the duo also serves as their first traditionally shot narrative, although still within their mischievous and creepy cinematic voice. FANGORIA caught up with Ortiz and Minihan recently to talk EXTRATERRESTRIAL, moving on from found footage and what subgenre they may tackle next…

    Q&A: Screenwriter Frank Woodward on “WRONG TURN 6″

    At this point, gorehounds need no introduction to the WRONG TURN franchise, the resident direct-to-video splatter sessions for 20th Century Fox. Filling in the demand for grue by the gallon as well as silly slasher set-pieces, WRONG TURN has built a cult audience that’s followed them for 6 movies, the latest being WRONG TURN 6: LAST RESORT. Putting these backwoods killers in a new location with new tools at their disposal, WRONG TURN 6 looks to hopefully breathe new life into the series, largely thanks to screenwriter Frank Woodward’s enthusiasm for both the series and the genre. Woodward recently spoke to FANGORIA, revealing his approach to the sixth WRONG TURN film and his hopes that LAST RESORT won’t be just that…

    Q&A: Director Seth Grossman on “INNER DEMONS”

    What qualifies a director as right for his/her specific job as a filmmaker? Is it technical skill, as in being able to create an exciting or provocative visual rhythm from any given camera? Is it endurance, as in being able to keep cool and confident under the pressures of the hustle-and-bustle on-set experience? Or is it a cinematic voice, as in being a master storyteller with an innate and unique understanding of your characters?

    In a way, for INNER DEMONS director Seth Grossman, it’s a mixture of all three but with one very specific advantage: his experience in both reality television and the world of horror. Grossman previously scared fright fans with THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT: REVELATIONS, a competent thriller in its own right that added a very interesting procedural spin on the franchise. But it’s Grossman’s work on the reality show INTERVENTION which makes him the right man to direct INNER DEMONS, a found footage horror that presents elements of possession horror through the eyes of a recovery reality show. Talking to FANGORIA, Grossman opened up on INNER DEMONS and what it’s like to create horror from a hot-button issue…
