    Q&A: Writer Allan Scott talks “DON’T LOOK NOW”

    On Monday, May 11th the fine folks at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto have booked award-winning screenwriter and producer Allan Scott as their special guest at their ongoing “Books on Film” series. As most more informed FANGO readers might know, Scott wrote the adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s chilling story DON’T LOOK NOW, for what would become the legendary same-named Nicholas Roeg directed horror classic starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie; Scott would go on to work with Roeg several times, helping sculpt a dynamic, dark and strange body of work. DON’T LOOK NOW (which has been recently set for a remake) is always worthy of discussion and praise, and FANGO was honored to have some time with Scott in anticipation of his TIFF appearance.

    “MAD MAX” (Blu-ray Review)

    To call the MAD MAX franchise “diverse” would be one hell of an understatement. While all the MAD MAX films exist plausibly in the same demented, post-apocalyptic universe, the changes in tone and content has been in leaps and bounds. From the insane road games of THE ROAD WARRIOR to the cartoonish pulp of BEYOND THUNDERDOME to the breathtaking fever dream of FURY ROAD, George Miller’s incredible universe has always felt as twisted, unique limbs attached to a singular body. And atop of that body is the head where it all began, with the simplistic, rough-and-tumble MAD MAX.

    “SUN CHOKE” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    To be honest, the particular brand of psychological horror that SUN CHOKE provides isn’t necessarily going to be for everyone. On one hand, it’s a unique and nightmarish look into a young woman whose struggle for internal and external freedom leads her to utter darkness and depravity. On the other hand, it’s a often-disorienting and logic-bending slow burn that requires patience and more than a little cinematic masochism. In any case, however, SUN CHOKE is an undeniably surreal and disturbing vision, with a rare aesthetic that will likewise please fans of both gruesome fare and art house horror.

    Remake Roulette: “LIFEFORCE”, “THE HOWLING” and More…

    Let’s face it: as long as the film business includes the word “business” in its title, there will always be remakes. At this point, it’s not even worth it to get upset; after all, the original will always continue to exist, even in the shadow of a remake or reboot.

    “THE HALLOW” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    Once in a while, the horror genre just needs a damn good monster movie. Thanks to trends in studio horror, fright fans are often saddled with gritty exploitation-adjacent genre films, minimalist ghost stories or psychologically taxing tales of psychopathia on a regular basis. So when a movie like THE HALLOW comes along, to call it refreshing would be an understatement, especially one as effectively scary and gorgeous as Corin Hardy’s creature feature.
