    TIFF Reveals Full Details on Massive, Media-spanning “THE CRONENBERG PROJECT”

    A staggering monument to a modern master, this fall the Toronto International Film Festival’s CRONENBERG PROJECT will serve as an exhibition seemingly unlike any other. Honoring Cronenberg and his contributions to film and media, the lengthy (it spans well into winter 2014) Project is comprised of a great many components including two film retrospectives (one of all Cronenberg films, and one of the “Rise of Body Horror”); a museum-esque exhibition including props, costumes and audio-visual elements that trace the evolution of his career and filmography; one of Guillermo del Toro’s beloved Master Classes with Cronenberg in attendance; and an actual space to take you within the filmmaker’s mind and films and much more. Additionally, FANGORIA will be on hand, honored to be playing an as-yet unannounced role in The CRONENBERG PROJECT.

    “ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW” Poster: Horror of the Happiest Place on Earth

    ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW seems the most curious film of the year. My biggest regret at Sundance was missing the movie everyone spoke about, which for a time seemed uncertain to ever play anywhere again. In his feature debut, Randy Moore covertly shot the surrealist, apparently Polasnki-esque story at Disneyland. It’s an incredible feat, one that becomes even more of an accomplishment considering the acclaim the picture has garnered and the apparently pointed attack it serves up on the artificial happiness Disney serves up.

    “RIDDICK” (Movie Review)

    If you recall, we first met Richard Riddick, an extreme survivalist Furyan with hyper sensitive eyes that aid him to see in the dark at long distances, in the modern cult favorite PITCH BLACK.

    Black Eyes: Marina de Van’s “DARK TOUCH” Gets First Poster

    Marina de Van, the filmmaker behind the intensely graphic IN MY SKIN and stylish thriller DON’T LOOK BACK has turned her eye to a child’s tale of horror. DARK TOUCH is a thrilling, Ireland-set film about a girl followed by destruction and may be the cause of it. The first poster certainly tips a hat to that with the innocent face of young Missy Keating, given the blackest eyes.
