    Fango Flashback: “STARSHIP TROOPERS” (1997)

    Following TOTAL RECALL, Paul Verhoeven’s career explored a strange and unexpected path, as the director experienced his greatest financial success back to back with his most marring critical and financial failure. In the wake of the latter, Verhoeven went returned to genre territory, optioning a script from his ROBOCOP collaborator Ed Neumeier entitled BUG HUNT AT OUTPOST 9 and refashioning it with elements from Robert Heinlein’s STARSHIP TROOPERS. A loose adaptation at best, Verhoeven saw the potential in another science-fiction satire and pursued it head-on, now with cutting-edge digital FX, an estimated budget of $105 million and a repertoire of both new and old collaborators at his disposal.

    “GODZILLA” Teasing Continues in International Trailer

    The name of the GODZILLA game has truly been “tease.” Each new trailer brings some obfuscated image of the grandest of giant monsters, be it doors closing on its roar, or red flares lighting the texture of its body. It’s certainly a thrilling campaign, one in which moody images of disaster hang just on the edge of a full Godzilla emergence and have the viewer essentially dying for the end result of all of this. Essentially, the latest international spot is no different, complete with the towering Godzilla, shrouded in dust and smoke.

    Trailer, VODetails: “THE EVIL WITHIN”

    Hitting this May, THE EVIL WITHIN (previously titled MINE GAMES) is being promoted as in the vein of CABIN IN THE WOODS. A curious comparison, as it could mean it’s starting from the same foundation as that ultimately very clever piece of work (i.e. a cabin in the woods), or it’s using the time honored vacationing kids in danger to get at something larger.

    EXCL Stills: Indie Horror Flick, “LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE”

    As Fango previously reported, Canadian indie horror anthology LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE is currently in production in Toronto. The brainchild of producer and occasional Fango scribe Kelly Michael Stewart (award-winning short ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD), the film is an amalgam of two short shockers helmed by young filmmakers Zach Ramelan (DEAD RUSH) and Torin Langen (FONDUE) with a wraparound from ONE MORE FROM THE ROAD director Navin Ramaswaran, all based around the concept of a late night horror host show turned terribly malevolent.

    Keep an Eye Out: The Five Best from SXSW

    It’s not as if confinement as a motif is rare, especially in low budget, independent and horror cinema. You know:  movies making the most of one location that can’t afford to get the fuck out (eventually taking up plenty of space in film festivals in the process). It still plays like a dark joke however to see confinement in films when you yourself are pulling four-five movie days in a dark theater. At least the three major housebound (one of them is called HOUSEBOUND) genre titles at the 2014 SXSW film festival were some of the best the fest had to offer, all while varying greatly in style, theme, tone, ponytail bounce and bleak worldview.
