    Festival Report: Helsinki’s NIGHT VISIONS 2014

    Helsinki’s 2014 edition of its Night Visions genre festival is the biggest yet. Following its Cultural Achievement Award from the city two years ago, the small festival has grown to encompass a program of over 40 feature films, with a roster of international guests and the odd live event or two. Top of the pile is John McNaughton, presenting both his notorious debut HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER and his newest film, THE HARVEST, starring Samantha Morton, Michael Shannon and Peter Fonda. Directors Pablo Larcuen and Randy Moore are also present with, respectively, the iPhone-shot horror HOOKED UP and the off-kilter ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW; director Simeon Halligan and his producing partner Rachel Richardson-Jones are here with their Brit-thriller WHITE SETTLERS; and Spanish actor/producer Marcos Ortiz presents the caving horror IN DARKNESS WE FALL. Its director Alfredo Montero would have joined him but became a father three days before. Ortiz says he deserves the trip anyway.

    “V/H/S VIRAL” (Movie Review)

    Any debate scheduled to conclude with fisticuffs in a boxing ring is bound to engender a bit more tension than the average Oxford Union fare, but when Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League and horror director Ti West clashed at Fantastic Fest this past September over the unsubtle-yet-hilarious/apropos proposition “The Found Footage Genre is a Cancer Eating Away the Integrity of Cinema” the point-counterpoint—as foreshadowed by the pair’s brutal pre-confrontation challenge videos—took on a particularly vitriolic, take-no-prisoners vibe.

    Q&A: Alexandre Aja on “HORNS”, “THE PYRAMID”

    What kind of filmmaker do horror fans think of when they hear the name “Alexandre Aja?” Some think of the French master of brutality, who was able to translate the voice of the French Extreme Horror movement into English with his remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES. Some think of a versatile, if underrated, filmmaker, who can churn out films as different as HIGH TENSION, MIRRORS and PIRANHA 3D. And others still are more familiar with his producing work, adding his own unique tonal variation to the slasher genre with films like P2 and the lauded MANIAC remake.
