    Q&A: Director Jeremy Berg on “THE DEVICE”

    As many of those familiar with the process knows, independent filmmaking is much like pulling off a magic trick in broad daylight. Without the resources and time suited to your liking, you often turn to your own resourcefulness and imagination to wow the audience.  And the more ambitious your trick may be, the more you’re going to have to fight to create something truly unique. And for director Jeremy Berg, helmer of the alien abduction flick THE DEVICE, there’s few tricks as ambitious as pulling off a convincing extraterrestrial thriller on shoestrings.

    The Year in Horror, 2014: Ken’s Top 10 Films

    With little over a week until Christmas, and two weeks until New Years Eve, it seems that 2014 has been a divisive year in the world of horror. While 2013 was a boon to genre films studio and indie alike, 2014 was not as lucky: great offerings mostly found their debut on VOD, while great studio horror was, more or less, widely accepted as a dime a dozen. But while 2015 may offer some truly creepy cinema, this polarizing nature of 2014’s horror offerings will do well for at least one thing: varied, unpredictable and oddly defensive End of Year lists!
