    “DARK TOUCH” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    In DARK TOUCH, European director and provocateur Marina de Van transfers her now recurring theme of identity crisis and unsure footing from grown women to a young girl still in pre-pubescence. It’s this pre-pubescence that’s taken terrifying advantage of; the repercussions of which manifest themselves in a fury of psychic power and telekinesis. Of course, CARRIE will be and is a touchstone for many in the case of this Ireland-set horror story, but whereas that tale explores the fear of oncoming womanhood, DARK TOUCH is an unnerving look at it forced on someone far, far too young.

    Q&A: “THE LORDS OF SALEM” Actresses Meg Foster and Dee Wallace

    The city of Salem, Massachusetts probably would have stayed anonymous through history if it wasn’t for the notorious witch trails that took place there between 1691-92. Cinema has frequently found inspiration in these infamous events, and filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie returns to the screen this Friday with THE LORDS OF SALEM, perhaps his darkest and most audacious work to date, with veteran genre stars Meg Foster (from John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE, pictured above with Zombie) and Dee Wallace (from Joe Dante’s THE HOWLING and others) among his cast.

    Mood Lighting: Five films to prime you for “THE LORDS OF SALEM”

    THE LORDS OF SALEM is both undoubtedly a Rob Zombie film and yet something of a departure. Aesthetically more mannered and surreal, the director brings his assuredness to what amounts to a less gritty, more heightened and composed peer into evil and a groundswell of negative energy. It’s lush and stylish and all of the similar sounding words that describe a trippy lightheadedness best experienced on as big a screen as possible.

    “THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG” Doc looks to Kickstarter for completion

    I was first introduced to the diminutive James Bond rip-off from the Philippines known as Weng Weng at my friend Anthony Biancofiore’s house long after an alcohol fueled party. Anthony is a big fan of the “little people” and it goes beyond an admiration and love for Billy Barty and the cast of UNDER THE RAINBOW. His devotion to dwarf stars extends to Bridget the Midget and her fellow small stature artistes in the world of adult entertainment and this strange oddity called Weng Weng; who with the help of his trusty umbrella that he uses to fly around à la Mary Poppins, his fast punchy kung-fu moves and his harem of regular sized sultry sexy starlets, has become an icon of cult cinema and is a significant part of Filipino culture.

    Q&A: Indie splatterfest “MULCH” is making compost

    There is a charm to the cheap and dirty gorefest. Those who turn their noses up at it and pretend to only have the most refined tastes in their monster movie stabfests are kind of crashing bores. For the rest of us, a good cheesy piece of high camp loaded with grotesque practical FX and mom’s minivan hits the spot. Done well, a movie like this takes us back to our glory days of a movie night with good friends and enough karo syrup to choke a Labrador. You can feel the fun the actors are having on screen, their joy is infectious and when the brains start to spray all over the walls in pneumatic jets, everything feels right with the world.

    EXCLUSIVE “FRESH MEAT” clip is Going Somewhere

    Regarding FRESH MEAT, MEET THE FEEBLES’ co-writer Danny Mulheron’s latest, the term “cannibal comedy” should have most Fango fans on board. But if you need a little extra incentive, our exclusive clip—with its New Zealand accents, rifle brandishing, short shorts and gentleman wrapped in a sleeping bag repeatedly run over—should give you a pretty good idea of the gonzo tone in store.
