• EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Two


    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-17 23:43:27

    First lesson when casting acting newcomers in your new genre
    flick: surround them with acting pros like Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti and
    fright faves such as Clancy Brown (THE BRIDE, HIGHLANDER, upcoming
    HELLBENDERS), Doug Jones (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and the legendary Tall Man
    himself, Angus Scrimm. That’s what writer/director Don Coscarelli did with his
    latest movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.

  • Jessica Chastain Saves the Drama for “MAMA”


    by: Trevor Parker on: 2013-01-16 21:28:13

    It’s not often that an actress rides into
    the motion picture world on the crest of as much hype and critical adoration as
    has Jessica Chastain. Rarer still is when that actress entirely validates the
    hype surrounding her, as Chastain most definitely has, garnering her second
    Oscar nomination in as many years. With her ruthless CIA operative in ZERO DARK
    THIRTY currently ruling the box office, audiences can catch a different side of
    Chastain’s acclaimed range when director Andy Muschietti’s ghostly fable MAMA
    his theaters this Friday.

  • Remembering Patty Shepard (1945-2013)


    by: Stephan Segantini on: 2013-01-16 03:04:01

    Fans of European horror have long been mesmerized by a pair of stunning, shining eyes which could simultaneously transmit mystery, seduction and a strength that were capable of charming anyone…even a werewolf. Last week we lost  those eyes, those that belonged to Patty Shepard, star of such films as the cult Paul Naschy flicks WEREWOLF VERSUS THE VAMPIRE WOMAN (a.k.a. NIGHT OF WALPURGIS, 1971) or in the (unfairly) despised Assignment Terror (1970).

    Timpone chatted with Giamatti about his cult flick, which he not only plays a
    key role in, but produced through his New York-based Touchy Feely shingle.

  • Q&A: Director Marko Mäkilaakso on his “WAR OF THE DEAD”


    From green light to release, the average film takes two to three years, but the zombie action feature WAR OF THE DEAD’s production started in way back in 2005. The remarkable adventure that followed would take director Marko Mäkilaakso around the world, through countless stops and stars, three title changes and eventually end as biggest film ever shot in Lithuania.
