    “IT FOLLOWS” (Fantastic Fest Review)

    The concept that drives writer/director David Robert Mitchell’s unnerving horror film IT FOLLOWS is obvious in its allegory and certainly, the idea of evil VD has been mined since David Cronenberg literally spat out his sex parasites in 1975’s THE CAME FROM WITHIN (aka SHIVERS). Here, in IT FOLLOWS, it’s not the metaphorical frissons that affect the viewer, rather it is the economical ways in which its director uses sound, silences and framing to seep under the audience’s skin. And believe us, IT FOLLOWS, much like the spectral STD it introduces, leaves an unshakable residue long after withdrawal.

    Exclusive: Comments and poster art for cult novel adaptation “HOUSE OF STAIRS”

    Before THE MAZE RUNNER, and even before CUBE, there was HOUSE OF STAIRS, William Sleator’s 1974 cult-fave sci-fi/thriller novel about five teenagers trapped in a labyrinthine environment that leads some of them to turn on the others. Forty years after its publication, it’s finally set to become a movie, and FANGORIA spoke to its producers at the Frontières International Co-Production Market during Montreal’s Fantasia festival this past summer.

    Fifteen Shorts to see at Fantastic Fest 2014

    On the eve of Fantastic Fest 2014, FANGORIA—proud sponsor of the FF Shorts Programs—shared with our readers five stellar short films from the festival’s past to watch online in full. As the fest gets underway however, we turn our eye to its highly anticipated slate of short shock. Ever exciting in its short film programs (thanks in large part to curator and programmer Kier-La Janisse) Fantastic Fest is a destination for adventurous audiences, those with irreverent taste and looking for an amazing time. Sometimes, amazing is fun. Sometimes, amazing is gross. Sometimes, amazing is confrontational. Oftentimes, it’s simply way gnar. Roll then with me, through a selection of shorts to keep an eye out for. Some I’ve seen. Others, I’m just very much looking forward to. All, I’m hoping fans and festgoers will catch with me at the Alamo South Lamar.

    “NO GOOD DEED” (Movie Review)

    Last week, at practically the last minute, Sony/Screen Gems cancelled press screenings of NO GOOD DEED, leaving critics to trek to theaters to see it. The ostensible reason was to protect the movie’s final-act surprise (which isn’t much), rather than the movie itself (which is even less).

When Ted’s beloved cat dies, the trauma triggers a terrible mental breakdown and in his anguish Ted vows to do anything to get his feline friend back, including kill for it.
