    Q&A: Frank Pavich and the tale of “JODOROWSKY’S DUNE”

    Cinema is full of devastating stories of films unfinished, abandoned or stolen. One of the most mythical of these is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s follow-up to his magical cult classics EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, a proposed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel, DUNE. The film was deep in pre-production in the mid-70s when financing fell apart, and boasted a crazy attached cast including Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, Gloria Swanson and David Carradine, production design by HR Giger and Jean “Moebius” Giraud, visual FX by Dan O’Bannon, and music by Magma and Pink Floyd. One can only imagine the stunning, mystical epic this would have been.

    Wizard Studios Brings Sleazy “PMS COP” to Full Moon Streaming

    Charles Band’s newly minted WIZARD Studios imprint, an extension of his colorful and influential home video label from the early 1980’s, has been quietly making good on its mandate for months. That is, to acquire a selection of high quality microbudget horror and fantasy films to stream via his FullMoonStreaming.com and – eventually – premiere on DVD. The first wave of films included such fare as VILANELLE, VAMPIE and the stunning winter-set giallo VIRGINIA OBSCURA. But WIZARD’s latest pick-up is something extra odd and spectacularly tasteless: PMS COP!

    Kaiju Web Series, “ENORMOUS” Premieres; Director Q&A

    In ENORMOUS, a giant monster graces the small(er) screen with no plan to lose scope in the process. Backed by Machinima, the web series adaptation of Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour’s comic book opens on a familiar post-apocalyptic landscape, though one not ravaged by natural disaster or nuclear threat. Instead, it’s the almost always awesome giant creature, the concept of which is in something of a renaissance at the moment, most notably in last year’s PACIFIC RIM and the approaching return of GODZILLA. But with little history or guideline for what exactly web series can or should be, crafting something as inherently tremendous and cinematic as a monster story leaves everything open to possibility. As the ENORMOUS pilot premieres online, Fango spoke with director BenDavid Grabinski about everything a web series, and giant monsters, can offer.
