    Q&A: Tom Holland talks “TWISTED TALES”

    From TALES FROM THE CRYPT to MASTERS OF HORROR, there are few filmmakers who can deliver an anthology story as effectively as writer/director Tom Holland. From FRIGHT NIGHT to CHILD’S PLAY, Holland is a versatile voice within the horror genre, bringing his trademark dark sense of humor and his penchant for practical effects to his many directorial efforts. And with his latest project, FEARNET anthology web series TWISTED TALES (on DVD now from Image Entertainment) Holland works outside of the constraints of time limits and content restriction to bring his clever and chilling work to a new generation of horror fans. Holland spoke to FANGORIA about his latest TWISTED TALES and updates on his long-brooding adaptation of Stephen King’s THE TEN O’CLOCK PEOPLE…

    Keep an Eye Out: The Five Best from SXSW

    It’s not as if confinement as a motif is rare, especially in low budget, independent and horror cinema. You know:  movies making the most of one location that can’t afford to get the fuck out (eventually taking up plenty of space in film festivals in the process). It still plays like a dark joke however to see confinement in films when you yourself are pulling four-five movie days in a dark theater. At least the three major housebound (one of them is called HOUSEBOUND) genre titles at the 2014 SXSW film festival were some of the best the fest had to offer, all while varying greatly in style, theme, tone, ponytail bounce and bleak worldview.

    Q&A: Billy Zane on Horror Roles Past and Present

    Whether it be as ruthless, manipulative villains or as handsome, smooth-talking protagonists, there’s few actors who bring as much natural charisma and dedication to their genre roles as Billy Zane. After capturing the attention of international audiences with his turn in DEAD CALM, Zane has proven himself to be a universal asset to multiple genre productions, whether it be a comic turn such as TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT or more esoteric and mysterious like TWIN PEAKS. As his reputation as a solid genre performer continues to grow, Zane spoke to FANGORIA about his past horror successes as well as what dark corners he just might explore further down his career trajectory…

    Mark Hartley’s PATRICK: EVIL AWAKENS, in theaters and on VOD today from Phase 4 Films (see first part of this set report here), is a de facto reunion of sorts for several people who worked on the first one, including costume designer Aphrodite Kondos and of course producer Antony I.

    Exclusive “PATRICK: EVIL AWAKENS” Set Visit, Part One: The Newcomers

    On the set of PATRICK: EVIL AWAKENS, Mark Hartley’s re-imagining of the Australian horror classic being lensed at Melbourne’s Docklands Studios on the eve of Christmas 2012, it’s understandably quiet. That’s because all available eyes and cameras are focused on Jackson Gallagher, the young Australian actor playing Patrick, as he stares unblinkingly upward from his hospital bed while nurse Kathy Jacquard (YOU’RE NEXT’s Sharni Vinson) chats away amiably to her apparently nonresponsive charge.

    Q&A: Actress Jacki Weaver on the Ghost Story “HAUNT”

    Talking with the soft-spoken, friendly actress Jacki Weaver over the phone, it’s hard to believe she has portrayed such truly scary characters in a couple of recent films. Following her Oscar nomination for portraying ruthless crime matriarch Janine “Smurf” Cody in ANIMAL KINGDOM, shot in her home country of Australia, she was cast in a crucial role in HAUNT, which opens today in select theaters.

    SXSW ’14: The Slashing Love-Hate Letter to Musical Theatre, “STAGE FRIGHT”

    You could say the extremities of horror and musical theatre run parallel, so it’s not a surprise to find fans of both. And ultimately, when the paths do cross successfully, it’s a refreshing sweet spot. Just in recent years a musical staging of Stuart Gordon’s RE-ANIMATOR found much deserved acclaim, as has a short film by the name THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM. The director of the latter, Jerome Sable, is set to hit fests again this month after slaying audiences with BEAVER DAM, returning in full force with a full length blend of singing and slashing and dancing and dying entitled STAGE FRIGHT. FANGORIA spoke to Sable and composer/writing partner Eli Batalion in anticipation of STAGE FRIGHT’s world premiere and found more than just a preview, but a sort of two man show.

    SXSW ’14: Desperation, Transformation and The Occult in “STARRY EYES”

    The stink of Hollywood desperation. The sight of body horror. The aura of the occult. STARRY EYES kind of sells itself. Then there’s its cast, including Pat Healy (CHEAP THRILLS), Noah Segan (DEADGIRL), Amanda Fuller (RED WHITE & BLUE) and Travis Stevens, a producer who stormed 2013 fests with CHEAP THRILLS and is clearly demonstrating an eye for thrilling, emerging genre talent. It’s not so difficult to see why then, in a frankly stacked midnight lineup at a major American film festival, STARRY EYES is one to watch.
