    Q&A: Damien Leone on “ALL HALLOWS’ EVE” and “FRANKENSTEIN VS. THE MUMMY”

    Writer/director/special FX artist Damien Leone recently enjoyed the Halloween DVD release of his first feature, ALL HALLOWS’ EVE (reviewed here), an anthology comprised of three shorts strung together by the appearance of a demonic clown. His next feature brings together two even more archetypal horror characters: FRANKENSTEIN VS. THE MUMMY. Leone recently spoke to FANGORIA about how ALL HALLOWS’ EVE came to be, struggling to create great FX with very little money, the creation and future of Art the Clown and how he’s reimagining classic creatures.

    Blood in the Snow 2013: Zach Ramelan Talks Zombie Short, “DEAD RUSH”

    Premiering at Toronto-based and Fango and TIFF-approved Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival tomorrow as part of its short film program, is DEAD RUSH. Filmmaker Zach Ramelan’s breakneck first person zombie assault is a blood dripping bit of mayhem that is as much an exercise in terror as it is a textbook case how to get the biggest bang for your humble filmmaking buck. As the fest kicks into full gear tonight, FANGORIA pulled Ramelan aside to congratulate him and pick his still uneaten brain about making a monster movie that moves on a grocery bill budget.

    Last Night of the Scarecrow Video?

    Earlier this month, it was announced that Blockbuster Video would close its remaining stores for good, having been taken out by the plentiful Redbox kiosks and streaming operations such as Netflix. I was not saddened in the least by this news; over the last two decades, Blockbuster helped drive many independently owned rental stores out of business.

But in a world where the destroyer of video stores has been destroyed, Scarecrow is struggling to stay afloat.
