    Newborn Dead: “REMOTE” access

    Back in 2009, I was coordinating a short film screening at the FANGORIA Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles. It was my baby and naturally, I wanted only the best films to be showcased. During my search I came across the short REMOTE. I was riveted. However, I knew no details about the making of the film nor did I know about REMOTE’s Canadian Director Marc Roussel.  All I knew is that I had a fantastic picture in my hands and I was going to show it. The response was terrific and I was happy. I could never have known then that I was showcasing a film that would go on to the festival circuit for the next four years, soaking up 41 “Official Film Festival Selections” across the globe, along with 11 “Winner” Awards, plus a very prestigious nomination for Best Short Film by the Director’s Guild of Canada.  REMOTE went on to have a life of its own, and a good one at that!

    NYC! Win a pair of tickets to French terror “INSIDE” at Nitehawk this weekend

    A contemporary classic of total terror, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s INSIDE was as ferocious a debut as you could ask for. Frightening and stunningly blood soaked all at once, it was a natural festival favorite and has become a staple for most horror fans when asked about damned good, recent genre. Oddly though, five years on from its stateside DVD debut, it hasn’t been the midnight rep go-to (or the Christmas Eve must-watch) one would expect. Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg) plans to do something about that this weekend and is opening the door for La Femme in their first installment of Nitehawk Nasties.

    Rest in Peace, Jesus “Jess” Franco (1930-2013)

    I’m writing this quickly, as I have to get this out now, while the news is still stinging, but Jesús “Jess” Franco died yesterday. To me, Franco was and remains the most important figure in cinema, a fascinating individual who ate, slept and breathed moviemaking, who lived to point his lens at anything that caught his eye, who was too arty for the horror crowd and too macabre and lowbrow for the art crowd. He existed in a world of his own, a class of his own and he is of the handful of true auteur filmmakers in which the key to understanding and embracing his style, aesthetic and sensibility lay in viewing and analyzing his entire body of work.
