With JOHN DIES AT THE END set to start bending minds when it
hits select theaters beginning tomorrow from Magnet Releasing, its director
spoke to Fango about the family ties involved in its production.
There’s a weirdness to the circumstances of JUG FACE’s plot that doesn’t quite take hold of the entire film. That is to say, a bit disappointingly, that a movie about prophetic pottery, incestuous pregnancy and a pit that demands sacrifice is a lot more of a straightforward horror picture than it sounds.Read more »

Let’s make this clear: WRONG COPS is a party. Oh, and don’t worry,
it’s appropriately blood-infused. While writer/director Quentin Dupieux (STEAK,

levels of dissidence.

Arterton spoke to Fango about her most adventurous role yet, as well as her upcoming vampire drama BYZANTIUM and a reunion with her DISAPPEARANCE director.
Popular opinion on genre remakes tends to be that they’re soulless product, meant to capitalize on a mildly recognizable title and often hampered by studio notes. Audiences, rightfully so, often ask that if they remain a constant, filmmakers could at least be granted the space to be creative and make it their own. In an age that sees more rehashes than ever, Jim Mickle’s American interpretation of Jorge Michel Grau’s Mexican horror film, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE could be a standard going forward.Read more »
