    “GIRLS” director heads to WGN’s “SALEM”

    WGN America, a channel that deals heavily in reruns has ordered its first scripted, original series. SALEM, from 24 and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION producer Brannon Braga aims to (fictionally, I assume) dig into the “dark, supernatural truth hiding behind the veil” of the Salem Witch Trials. Previously reported as delivering a “new vision of witches,” the series now has an intriguing filmmaker to helm it.

    Fantastic Fest ’13: Second Wave Announcement features “WITCHING & BITCHING” and more!

    2013’s Fantastic Fest is shaping up to be something else entirely. The Second Wave has been announced and it seems nothing short of stellar with new works from mind blowing international filmmakers Ben Wheatley and Sion Sono and so much more. That’s not to mention one of my most anticipated movies of the year, Alex de la Iglesia’s WITCHING & BITCHING. Find the full rundown below, with images and trailers where available and tell me what you’re curiously anticipating in the comments. Is it the shadowy looking OUR HEROES DIED TONIGHT? The gothic stop-motion of O’ APOSTOLO? The Japanese superhero who wears panties over his face? The dressed up Elijah Wood thriller GRAND PIANO? The sewage-soaked SEPTIC MAN? What about the David Cronenberg-narrated documentary on organ trafficking?

    Ben Wheatley’s “A FIELD IN ENGLAND” to have its North American Premiere at TIFF

    A FIELD IN ENGLAND’s all encompassing day-and-date DVD, VOD, TV and online release in the UK last month was an envious one. So many options there, but none yet for stateside enthusiasts of Ben Wheatley.

    Plenty of short films are made every minute and many of them find their way to our mailbox.  Some are unwatchable, some are passable, some—the rare jewels—are fantastic. Navin Ramaswaran’s crackerjack micro-thriller ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD careens wildly into the fantastic arena, smashing against the world, destroying and bursting into a superlative display of bloody 4th of July fireworks.

    FANGORIA Presents: Lance Henriksen on “SIN REAPER”

    As any devoted FANGORIA reader knows, one of the reasons why horror is one of the strongest genres of cinema is the fact that the love for horror is so universal and communal. The horror genre brings together audiences young and old in a way unlike any other, as the experience of watching a scary movie differs so uniquely from person to person.
