    Q&A: Director Mitchell Altieri on “HOLY GHOST PEOPLE” and the Perils of Snake-Handling

    It’s another strange case of life imitating art: Just a day before HOLY GHOST PEOPLE, director Mitchell Altieri’s thriller set amidst a snake-handling cult, hit VOD on Wednesday, reports came down that a Kentucky pastor who took part in the dangerous practice—and starred in a reality show about it—had succumbed to a fatal bite.

    Q&A: E.L. Katz on Subversive Horror-Comedy, “CHEAP THRILLS”

    Shock is a cornerstone of horror cinema, but it’s indeed rare for a film to retain lasting bite. CHEAP THRILLS, which you’ve undoubtedly heard about based on its tremendous festival fun, trades in both, ending up a gnashing, hilarious, subversive reflection of the types of indignities we like to watch each other suffer. A microcosm of a society that hosts embarrassment-as-entertainment, self-deception and class conflict, the most surprising thing about E.L. Katz’s feature debut is that it’s just that. FANGORIA spoke with the filmmaker, a longtime collaborator of YOU’RE NEXT’s Adam Wingard, about how he packed a killer cast, clever subtext and more into an accomplished first film.

    “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.

    Screenwriter and director Mark Jones is best known for spawning the LEPRECHAUN franchise, which is notorious for polarizing audiences—including genre fans.

    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.
