    “SCHISM” (Screamfest Movie Review)

    Los Angeles’ Screamfest has become known as a place for indie films that might otherwise struggle for screenings to not only have a theatrical showing, but also catch the eyes of Hollywood’s major distributors. This year, the talk of the festival has been Adam Gierasch’s SCHISM, which screened this past Saturday night to a packed house. This reviewer attended without knowing anything about the film or what to expect, and can now safely say that it’s shocking, disturbing and possibly one of the best indie films so far this year.

    I’ll never experience the joy of pregnancy, but I’m sure at some point all expectant mothers feel as if they’re harboring the antichrist within, huh? Such is the reason we continue to tell these stories  of the fear of oncoming motherhood and unleashing something awful unto the world. The latest spin on “what the hell is growing inside me?” comes from Radio Silence, the collective of gentleman who brought the house down in the final installment of V/H/S, “10/31/98″. It’s entitled DEVIL’S DUE.

    Director & DP go Inside the Coven with commentary on “AMERICAN HORROR STORY”

    Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Cinematographer Michael Goi are some of AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s most key players. Providing the series with immense, dizzying, often beautiful style, they meet the nuttiest places the series is willing to go and complement perfectly. It’s great then, that they’ve dived into their choices in a mini-featurette covering COVEN’s premiere episode “Bitchcraft.” Discussing not only their strong visual decisions, but SUSPIRIA influence and how they achieve such on the tight schedule that is television production, the six-minute “Inside the Coven” is great viewing for fans and admirers.

    ALL NIGHT HORROR MARATHON: “THE OUTING” (Scream Factory DVD Review)

    In the early 80s, the slasher was king. So much so that studios were barely making any other kinds of horror movies.  But as with all trends, it died out thanks to the resurgence of monster and supernaturally-tinged movies that offered big budget, state of the art FX, and leaving producers without the money to compete with the likes of THE FLY and The LOST BOYS little choice but to stick to the (cheaper) slasher movie template.  But in many of these mid/late 80s cases, such as THE OUTING (aka THE LAMP, more on that soon), they would toss in a monster or some sort of possession angle to stick out a bit and avoid being just another “outdated” slasher movie, even while sticking rigidly to its formula: a bunch of kids being picked off one by one, leaving the smartest girl to face off and defeat the villain.
