    Blumhouse Producing “HOME” from “LAST HOUSE” director

    While unquestionably a hit maker, producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions must also be lauded for their eye in working with very neat genre filmmakers. Hopefully this is the year we’ll finally see their collaboration with THE STRANGERS director Bryan Bertino, and now Blumhouse is backing HOME, a new film from Dennis Iliadis, the director who helmed THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT remake and last year’s very cool pop-art party horror PLUS ONE.

    Q&A: Quebecois Filmmaker Izabel Grondin on Her Extreme Cinematic Art

    Izabel Grondin’s short film THE TABLE (a.k.a. LA TABLE, pictured above) recently made it into the pre-selection for the Jutra Awards, Quebec’s Oscars that celebrate the best of the province’s cinema. This is no small feat, in that Grondin’s piece was up against over 173 of Quebec’s finest shorts. Also wonderful for cinephiles of a transgressive sort is THE TABLE’s content; as usual, Grondin has produced a work of great beauty, brutality and BDSM, and to see this sort of art recognized at such a prestigious level—that it can be taken seriously and admired as art—bodes well for extreme cinema.

XYZ Films, the production company and sales agency behind the likes of THE RAID 2, SPRING (from RESOLUTION directors Benson & Moorhead) and much more have taken world sales rights for PRESERVATION in anticipation of the upcoming European Film Market and an early glimpse, as well as synopsis on the movie is out.

    Q&A: Director Kieran Parker on “OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ”

    From creating the story of the original film to now taking the reins of the series behind the camera, there are few people as instrumental to the OUTPOST franchise as Kieran Parker. A longtime and active producer on the films, Parker steps directs for the first time for the prequel, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ. Lean, intense and as bloody as the Nazi zombie madness that came before it, RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ is a worthy entry, offering insight to some of the key mysteries of the first film while providing a wealth of material which could be explored in future OUTPOST films. As the film makes its VOD debut, courtesy of XLrator Media, Parker spoke to FANGORIA about going back in time with this third offering of OUTPOST…
