    “EVIL DEAD” (Mike’s Movie Review)

    EVIL DEAD die-hards can calm their concerns—the remake of Sam Raimi’s classic is good enough that, at a certain point, you might forget it’s a remake. Recapturing the essence of its predecessor without slavishly aping its style, the new movie stands on its own and provides buckets of bloody fun.

    Trailer: Zoë Bell & Rachel Nichols to have it out at Tribeca in “RAZE”

    Set to world premiere at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, Josh Waller’s tale of woman-pitted against-woman looks a rough, bare-knuckle take on the “in prison” subgenre.

    In RAZE, “Sabrina (Bell) is abducted, and finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocent women for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done.”

    Rachel Nichols (P2), Bell’s DEATH PROOF co-star Tracie Thoms, TWIN PEAKS’ Sherilyn Fenn (!) and Doug Jones round out the cast. Fango will have words on the film in just a few weeks as Tribeca gets underway. For more, visit the official Facebook, here.

    Demon Man walks goat in latest “LORDS OF SALEM” clip

    Although we differ in opinion (I’m very much in the film’s corner), a friend pretty accurately described THE LORDS OF SALEM as a movie where its strange tendencies and scares all happen around the main character, as opposed to directly to. Sheri Moon Zombie’s Heidi is placed on an ever-descending journey where goofyweird, surreal images lurk in and out of frame; sometimes in full view, and sometimes just we know they’re there. Surprisingly, since their trailer was cut to look more standard VOD horror, Anchor Bay is selling these moments.

    Trailer: Is “THE PURGE” high concept home invasion?

    The latest from cinema’s low budget genre machine Blumhouse (SINISTER, INSIDIOUS) is predicated on a fascinating idea—the seeming extreme of “necessary evil” rationalization—which is one night a year in a now very peaceful America, all crime is legal. Naturally, the haven the country masquerades as erupts in violent chaos and the James DeMonaco-directed picture focuses on how one family aims to make it through the night.

    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!

    Q&A: “6 SOULS” screenwriter Michael Cooney

    In his numerous genre screenplays, Michael Cooney has demonstrated a penchant for dealing with issues of disturbed minds. Like his 2003 hit IDENTITY, his latest feature 6 SOULS takes a frightening look at what happens when multiple psyches inhabit the same mind—this time with a supernatural backstory. Fango spoke to Cooney about scripting scary split personalities…and his past directing a killer snowman.
