    Women in Horror Month: Debra Hill, the Mother of “HALLOWEEN”

    While February is commonly considered to the Black History Month, genre fans have also adopted the month for another cause: Women in Horror Month, recognizing and celebrating the often underappreciated women who help make the genre what it is today. While by no means demeaning the work of men within the genre, Women in Horror Month asks horror fans to turn their eyes beyond just the scream queens and final girls, but rather to the hard-working women who struggle to make great work specifically for the genre they love. Therefore, FANGORIA is celebrating Women in Horror Month by shining a light on some of the most instrumental women to the development of horror as we know it…

    Exclusive pics, comments on 18-year-old filmmaker’s horror/fantasy “KING RIPPLE”

    Michigan native Luke Jaden is only 18, but he has already wrapped production on his fourth film, a postapocalyptic horror/fantasy called KING RIPPLE. We’ve got a batch of exclusive photos, plus comments from the filmmakers.

    KING RIPPLE is about four teenagers (Torrey Wigfield, Allie DeBerry, Jaden and Callaghan Belle) searching an urban wasteland for the mysterious title character (Keith Stanfield, 1st pic below). Jaden directed from a screenplay by Josh Malerman, whose novel BIRD BOX inspired a script by Eric Heisserer that wound up on both the Black List and the Blood List, and who also teamed with Jaden on the upcoming haunted-house feature NOT WELL. Jaden has a number of acting credits, but this is the first time he has both helmed and co-starred in a project. “As a director, you have to be behind the camera, paying attention to every little detail from a bird’s eye view,” he says. “But I just could not do that on this project. I had to get into character, look at and really study the script, and rehearse lines. On this one I decided to take a step back.

    “I had to trust my cinematographer and producers,” he continues, “and I told them before we started shooting that we were all going to have to work together in order to get across this tightrope blindfolded at a million stories high. They all believed in me when I was behind the camera, but when I was in front of it I had to really believe in them. So, making this film, I had to rely on a tremendous amount of trust.”

    Adds Michael Angelo Zervos, one of KING RIPPLE’s producing team, “Luke took a risk directing a film in which he was also expected to perform. The conditions of production were trying already, with near-freezing temperatures and all location shooting. Taking on this additional challenge could have broken a less driven individual, but Luke has never lacked the perseverance to succeed.” Completion of KING RIPPLE is scheduled for the middle of this year; see the movie’s Facebook page here.
