  • Drafthouse Acquires Marling/Steinfeld-led Thriller “THE KEEPING ROOM”

    ,

    Time and time again, the connection between the western and horror genres becomes more apparent by every succeeding entry. Westerns, which often reflect a savage times and dangerous environments, have delved into the bloodier and gruesome realities of the genre as time has gone on under the eyes of revisionist directors. Likewise, horror has found many subgenres flourish when mixed with western tropes, including vampire films (NEAR DARK), creature features (THE BURROWERS) and even cannibals (RAVENOUS). But with 2015 already offering one western from a tried-and-true horror voice (Ti West’s IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE), Drafthouse Films is raising the bar, announcing this morning that they acquired the claustrophobic Civil War thriller THE KEEPING ROOM.

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!

  • Q&A: Chuck Palahniuk on “BEAUTIFUL YOU”

    ,,

    Brilliant madman author Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) released his latest opus, BEAUTIFUL YOU, this past October, a twisted tale that follows Penny Harrigan, a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm who finds herself a test subject for a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called “Beautiful You.” But that’s just the beginning of her story, as Penny becomes an unwitting pawn in a maniacal plot for world sexual domination. Like all of Palahniuk’s stuff, the horror hides in the skin of the surreal and socio-political, and FANGORIA caught up with Chuck to discuss…
