    Trailer, VODetails: “THE EVIL WITHIN”

    Hitting this May, THE EVIL WITHIN (previously titled MINE GAMES) is being promoted as in the vein of CABIN IN THE WOODS. A curious comparison, as it could mean it’s starting from the same foundation as that ultimately very clever piece of work (i.e. a cabin in the woods), or it’s using the time honored vacationing kids in danger to get at something larger.

    EXCL Stills: Indie Horror Flick, “LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE”

    As Fango previously reported, Canadian indie horror anthology LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE is currently in production in Toronto. The brainchild of producer and occasional Fango scribe Kelly Michael Stewart (award-winning short ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD), the film is an amalgam of two short shockers helmed by young filmmakers Zach Ramelan (DEAD RUSH) and Torin Langen (FONDUE) with a wraparound from ONE MORE FROM THE ROAD director Navin Ramaswaran, all based around the concept of a late night horror host show turned terribly malevolent.

    Keep an Eye Out: The Five Best from SXSW

    It’s not as if confinement as a motif is rare, especially in low budget, independent and horror cinema. You know:  movies making the most of one location that can’t afford to get the fuck out (eventually taking up plenty of space in film festivals in the process).

    Denis Villenueve’s “ENEMY” (Movie Review)

    Lynchian, as a term, is often used as synonymous with something that’s simply weird. Specifically though, the director’s surreal visuals balloon not out of randomness or an overly complex plot, but a basic idea; a core emotion. It’s the frightening pictures and strange scenarios that manifest in your subconscious as a result of our fundamental anxieties that Lynch and Lynchian works are tapping into. To that end, Denis Villenueve’s ENEMY is entirely so (and that’s aside from the presence of Isabella Rossellini). A story of undeserved malaise and the old adage, “once a cheater, always so,” the film uncomfortably hangs above the audience just as a massive spider looms above Toronto in its main character’s nightmares.
