  • Phil Tippett’s stop-motion project “MAD GOD PART 3” Kickstarter details, exclusive stills

    ,,,

    Oscar and Emmy Award-winning visual effects mastermind Phil Tippett is currently working on a third installment of his stop-motion series MAD GOD, fully funded by Kickstarter. MAD GOD Part 1 earned a mind-blowing $124,156, surpassing its pledged $40,000 goal to bring it to life and proves it’s a project that fans yearn for.

    For those unfamiliar, read more about MAD GOD below:

    Mad God is an experimental, hand-made, animated film, set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.

    Directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett, the sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart.  Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it’s punctured and bleeding all over the place… 24 frames per second.

    MAD GOD is a mature film made with technology that spans the history of cinema.

  • Eric D. Howell talks horror with a lot of heart in his directorial debut “VOICE FROM THE STONE”

    ,

    Cutting his teeth as a special effects artist, stuntman and second unit director, Eric D. Howell went on to study a screenwriting degree when he realized that, in order to direct his way out of a problem, he also needed to be able to write his way out of a problem. One thing lead to another and it wasn’t long before his short film “Annas Playground” was shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination. And whilst it didn’t quite make it into the final few, it opened the door and earned him both respect and representation which ultimately resulting in the script for his directorial debut, VOICE FROM THE STONE, reaching his hands.

    With this tale of love, loss and grief and all of the fears and horrors that go along with that all set to release this Friday, Howell spoke to FANGORIA to explain how this sui generis spin on the classic ghost tale resonated so strongly with him, urging him to bring the story to life…

  • Terror of the Unknown: 4 Creepy Sci-Fi Novels That Will Make You Fear the Endless Abyss

    ,

    Okay, as someone fell who in love with Event Horizon years ago, I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with stories that seem to effortlessly fuse sci-fi and horror.  Sure, sometimes compelling, horror infused sci-fi can be hard to find, but when you do come across it there’s nothing quite like it. This tends to be particularly true for novels in the genre. As for me, I read them because sometimes reading about the horror of the fictional unknown, makes it easier to cope with the real unknown. Why, you may ask? Because facing fear and overcoming it teaches us a little bit about who are, even in print. So, without further ado, meandering, or woolgathering, here are my top four picks in no particular order.

  • Ridley Scott Goes Back To His Alien Roots With ALIEN: COVENANT (Review)

    ,,

    Fans of the original Alien, the groundbreaking sci-fi/horror classic, will find a lot to like in the latest installment of this iconic franchise.  The plot is reminiscent of the 1979 film:  the Covenant, a transport ship in deep space, its crew in cryosleep, gets knocked off its trajectory by a solar storm.  The core crew reawakens to find a strange signal from a previously unknown planet… one that seems oddly perfect for their colonization mission.  Also onboard is a synthetic human named Walter (brilliantly played by Michael Fassbender).  Faced with years’ more space travel to reach their original destination, the captain (Billy Crudup) decides to explore this new planet as an alternative.  In place of the formidable Ripley, Covenant’s first officer Daniels (Katherine Waterston) is grieving the loss of her husband (James Franco in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it performance).  While softer than Sigourney Weaver’s character, Daniels has some of Ripley’s inner steel – and she’ll need it because once they land on the idyllic, but strangely empty world, things go south, fast!  The lush landscape is littered with small pods, which release tiny spores when stepped on.  Those drift into bodily orifices with horrific results.  Soon the landing ship’s sickbay has a formerly healthy crewman who is convulsing, screaming and bleeding out on the table. You don’t have to be a medic to know what’s coming next!  And then IT IS ON: the Covenant’s pilot (Danny McBride) manages a risky rescue of the stranded crewmembers but once back aboard, they discover they are far from safe!

  • Christopher Farley, Alycia Tracy, and Aaron Leddick talk “THE ALIENATORS”

    ,,

    I find myself looking at the “box art” of a film online and saying to myself, “what the hell is this about?”  Actually, I do that often. Well, I did that with the film THE ALIENATORS. Now, even though I wasn’t sure what it is I was getting myself into, I checked out the film anyway. Well, I must say, it was well worth the watch.

    THE ALIENATORS, directed by Christopher Farley, and starring Derek Reckley, Alycia Tracy, and Aaron Leddick, is a mocumentary that follows two Ufologists (Reckley and Leddick), those who study U.F.O.’s, and their investigation of a woman (Alycia Tracy), who claims that extraterrestrials are watching her.  This alien abduction, science-fiction comedy really changed my point of view, no pun intended, on the hand held/documentary style filmmaking, still happening. From the fun, and often over-the-top characters, to the “reel” feel of the film, THE ALIENATORS is absolutely a film to check out.
