Screamers Vol 1: MAIL ORDER
Eric Shapiro | USA 2011 | 16min.
Curated by Tony Timpone, FANGORIA
Our first offering in the SCREAMERS program, MAIL ORDER, comes from a short story by one of the masters of literary terror and suspense, Jack Ketchum (THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, RED, THE LOST and THE WOMAN). Written and directed by RULE OF THREE’s Eric Shapiro, MAIL ORDER follows a Wall Street trader who is obsessed with snuff films and thinks he sees an old girlfriend starring in one. The movie toplines Lee Schall and Cerris Morgan-Moyer and was produced by Rhoda Jordan. Ian McGlocklin-Sinclair shot the minifeature, with editing by Randy Stoudt. Please note that MAIL ORDER contains nudity and is recommended for mature audiences.Read more »

In addition to our FANGORIA PRESENTS VOD/DVD lineup of new films (more info on the FANGORIA PRESENTS page HERE), our readers with Comcast will find a VOD folder called ‘FANGORIA’, that will feature both our current FANGORIA PRESENTS films and a monthly, themed selection of studio repertory titles bearing the moniker FANGORIA’S VIDEOCRYPT, curated by esteemed programmer and producer Zack Carlson.
March’s VIDEOCRYPT kicks off with “Gory Getaways and Vicious Vacations.” Carlson writes, “If you somehow survive the stomach-churning intensity of FANGORIA’s latest release AXED, then join us as we slash into 12 classic expeditions to the supernatural underbelly of the travel industry. From HOWLING 2’s Transylvanian she-wolves to England’s quaintly demonic DOLLS to the down-home southern comfort n’ cannibalism of MOTEL HELL, you’ll be having the time and/or end of your life on these Gory Getaways and Vicious Vacations!”
Here’s the full, fantastic roster of beloved staples and obscure treasures in our Comcast folder this month: AXED, DOLLS, THE BEAST WITHIN, BEYOND THE DOOR III, MOTEL HELL, HOWLING II: YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF, THE BURNING, HIGHWAY TO HELL, SUPERBEAST, SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: TEENAGE WASTELAND, TROLL 2, ISLAND OF DR.
