    “LUCKY BASTARD”: Terror and Porn Clash in NC-17 Horror Show

    When a porn site holds a contest that promises wild, on camera sex with one of its stars, Ashley Saint, as the prize, you can only imagine the gaggle of characters that apply for such an honor. The offers pour in like lava erupting from the Kilauea volcano, filling their inbox with a wide assortment of sexed up applicants. In an attempt to play it safe, they go with a down on his luck guy named Dave. He just lost his brother to cancer, served his country in the military and seems as good-natured as Doctor Dolittle in a fur-filled forest. What could go wrong? When the porn producing team meets their winner in person on the day of the shoot, Dave seems a little off. Forging ahead they overlook his personal ticks and jump into the filming. Over excited, Dave blows the scene and begins to feel humiliated over the whole ‘jumping the gun’ incident. Thus begins his spiral down. Dave’s spiral will include blood. Not his, theirs.

    Q&A: Mark Jones talks “SCORNED,” the new “LEPRECHAUN” and “VAMPRICHAUN”!

    Screenwriter and director Mark Jones is best known for spawning the LEPRECHAUN franchise, which is notorious for polarizing audiences—including genre fans. His new flick SCORNED (on DVD and Blu-ray from Anchor Bay) features no mischievous sprites, but instead EXCISION’s AnnaLynne McCord as Sadie, a demented young woman seeking vengeance on her unfaithful lover (Billy Zane) after a would-be romantic getaway weekend turns sour.

    Q&A: Dominic Purcell on “VIKINGDOM”

    Whether it’s man-eating crocodiles, dream demons or half-human vampire slayers, actor Dominic Purcell has faced his fair share of frightening foes over the course of his career. Of course, fans of the bulking actor wouldn’t be surprised, as Purcell has proven himself a versatile character actor, capable of both colorful supporting performances and stoic leading man status. In his latest project, the gory and over-the-top fantasy epic VIKINGDOM (now on DVD and VOD from Epic Pictures), Purcell mixes a bit of both worlds to provide a badass, sword-wielding warrior that’s different from your average, molar-grinding action hero. Purcell talked to FANGORIA about his new film, his inspired past performances and the horror role he found to be truly terrifying…

    Many Ways Through “A FIELD IN ENGLAND”: A Q&A with Ben Wheatley

    Like his work before it, Ben Wheatley’s A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a singular experience. It is wholly enrapturing and unexpected on first view, and subsequently unfurls upon return. Presented as a film of “magic and madness,” it is also one of many possibilities, from vastly different interpretation (as you’ll see below) to whether or not one will view it as informed by everything the director’s created until now. For those that do, it seems absolutely a culmination, one that allows the overspill of mystical air and dark energy that’s hung over, both heavily and not, DOWN TERRACE, KILL LIST and SIGHTSEERS.

    Gay of the Dead – Michael Varrati, Part One

    The very prolific gay auxiliary of the East Coast Indie Horror Factory is making good use of a (currently) West Coast screenwriter and actor named Michael Varrati. Screenwriting work with Bart Mastronardi (TALES OF POE), Alan Rowe Kelly (ditto), and Richard Marr-Griffin (IT CAME FROM THE VCR), plus acting roles in Troma flicks (RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOLUME 2) and Debbie Rochon’s directing debut (MODEL HUNGER) have kept this boy very busy. While keeping up a lively Facebook chat over the past weeks, I subjected him to my gay dog and gay pony show in the form of an email interview.

    Q&A: Bill Plympton Talks “CHEATIN’ ” and “ABCs OF DEATH 2”

    For over 30 years, there’s been no voice in independent animation as transgressive or prolific as Bill Plympton. From the early days of MTV to the Academy Awards and beyond, Plympton has delivered a great diversity of subversive work, using elements of surrealism and dark comedy to create cartoons unlike any other. Fango spoke to him about his colorful and freaky new feature CHEATIN’, and got a few words on his segment of the upcoming ABCs OF DEATH 2.

    Q&A: Quebecois Filmmaker Izabel Grondin on Her Extreme Cinematic Art

    Izabel Grondin’s short film THE TABLE (a.k.a. LA TABLE, pictured above) recently made it into the pre-selection for the Jutra Awards, Quebec’s Oscars that celebrate the best of the province’s cinema. This is no small feat, in that Grondin’s piece was up against over 173 of Quebec’s finest shorts. Also wonderful for cinephiles of a transgressive sort is THE TABLE’s content; as usual, Grondin has produced a work of great beauty, brutality and BDSM, and to see this sort of art recognized at such a prestigious level—that it can be taken seriously and admired as art—bodes well for extreme cinema.
