  • Nicolas Winding Refn’s “THE NEON DEMON” Acquired by Amazon

    ,

    Two weeks ago, this writer wrote a Deaditorial about the problematic economic relationship between streaming services and the horror genre. And while that relationship is still a bit of a concern to this writer, news broke over the weekend exclusively via Variety that might point at least one service going in a genre-friendly direction as Amazon Studios has acquired Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated horror film THE NEON DEMON.

  • Horrific love story “NINA FOREVER” set for Valentine’s Day release

    ,

    Undying love sees one of its most gruesome expressions in NINA FOREVER, a SXSW premiere that has won plenty of fest praise, and is now heading for U.S. release.

    Epic Pictures has announced that NINA FOREVER, written and directed by Ben and Chris Blaine, will open February 12, 2016 for Valentine’s Day weekend. The movie just received British Independent Film Awards nominations for Best Debut Director and Most Promising Newcomer, the latter for Abigail Hardingham, who stars alongside Cian Barry and Fiona O’Shaughnessy; it also took the Best Feature prize at this year’s FrightFest. The synopsis: “NINA FOREVER follows Holly [Hardingham] as she begins a relationship with her co-worker Rob [Barry], who is grieving over the recent death of his girlfriend Nina [O’Shaughnessy] from a motorcycle accident. Holly has fallen for Rob and is determined to help him though his grief. Yet every time they make love, Nina appears; tangled, bloody and still fixated on Rob. Holly doesn’t freak out and run—she can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what she’ll do, regardless of the consequences.”

    “NINA FOREVER offers a strong alternative to audiences sick of the standard, overly sappy Valentine’s Day fare,” says Epic’s Patrick Ewald. “The film smartly mixes humor, horror and romance elements in a film that is surprisingly touching and thought-provoking.” Adds Epic’s Shaked Berenson, “Similar to IT FOLLOWS, NINA FOREVER appeals to wider audiences because of its subtext. Unlike pure horror films, it’s a relationship-horror story in which well-drawn characters drive the story.” Check out NINA FOREVER’s official website and Facebook page.

  • Full Contact: “Dead of Night” and The Extreme Haunt Experience

    ,

    I met P.H. in a parking lot while waiting to be blindfolded and put into the trunk of a car. This wasn’t part of a kidnapping, just the method used for entering an immersive haunted house named Nyctophobia. P.H. stared me down menacingly before breaking into a laugh and admitting he wasn’t there to kidnap me, but was attending the haunt as well, and introduced himself as the creator of another extreme haunted house called Dead Of Night. My interest was piqued; I’d heard stories of Dead Of Night from locals, and knew it had recently been named one of the most intense haunts in the country by The Raven & Black Cat. P.H. promised this was going to be the strangest year yet, but wouldn’t say anymore except that it was happening November 13th and 14th of this year.  We exchanged contact information, and I convinced him to meet me for a chat the following week.
