    Q&A: Ortiz, Ramirez & Valderrama on their time in the “SANITARIUM”

    The anthology film has become somewhat of a boon for up-and-coming horror filmmakers, acting as a way to present short format work as an affordable calling card without the limitation of exposure that hinders short films. Anthologies also give these filmmakers, many of whom are rooted in the independent scene, creative freedom that they normally wouldn’t get in a longer form project with higher budgets and more production scrutiny. Furthermore, the pressure of putting together a feature film is often spread over more than one filmmaker, which in and of itself can allow the director to focus on the necessary aspects of storytelling.

    “PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES” (Movie Review)

    As a spin-off of sorts, and the latest entry in what’s currently the (possibly waning) horror franchise du jour, there are essentially three things that surprise in PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES. Lamentably, none of them are its scare tactics. While undeniably more energetic in its approach—a godsend compared to the tedious fourth film—there still resides the spookhouse formula of a camcorder capturing a) an unforeseen jolt; b) something shadowy someone who wields it doesn’t see; or c) someone being aggressively tossed directly at it. And for what it’s worth, it works. The familiarity of the technique almost effortlessly creates a good time for a packed house.

    Earlier this year, FANGORIA reported THE AMITYVILLE HORROR: THE LOST TAPES was “dead”, from a reliable source. Recently however, the validity of the claim was under fire after producer Jason Blum himself revealed the project was “still going.” “We’re going to make that movie and it’s very cool.
