    Q&A: Herman Yau and Erica Li talk new “IP MAN” films and Category III horror

    Director Herman Yau is well-known to Asian-horror fans for his notorious Category III pictures THE UNTOLD STORY and EBOLA SYNDROME from the early/mid-’90s, though he has made dozens of films in many other genres since then, including a pair of new martial arts movies featuring the legendary Ip Man. While visiting the current New York Asian Film Festival, Yau and screenwriter Erica Li chatted with Fango about those actioners, as well as the director’s return to extreme horror.

    Film4 unveils “A FIELD IN ENGLAND” making-of Masterclass

    Ben Wheatley’s highly anticipated historical horror A FIELD IN ENGLAND has received a chronicling more extensive than most any making-of, and will likely cancel any plans you had for today.

    Film4 and the filmmakers behind A FIELD IN ENGLAND have put together something of an astounding Digital Masterclass which dives into every facet of production. Divided by Development, Pre-Production, Shooting and Post-Production, the material includes a ton of both essay and video featuring all manner of cast and crew and specific explorations of the edit, scene anatomy, cinematography and the film’s tight schedule.

    Much of it contains spoilers, which could be frustrating for those of us stateside (I have a copy on its way from UK right now), but bookmark this now for when Drafthouse Films releases later this year. You can find the introductory behind-the-scenes video above and the entire Masterclass here.

    “HOAX HUNTERS: CASE FILES #1″ (Comic Review)

    The world is full of strange things. Bigfoot, aliens, ghosts, demons; the stuff of horror goes on and on. Thanks to the fascination of all things morbid, many television shows are taking advantage of humans’ natural fear of the unknown and turning a pretty hefty sum investigating claims of paranormal activity. But what if there was a show that debunked all that? A type of MYTH BUSTERS, but for things that go bump in the night?

    “ABSENCE” (Movie Review)

    As found footage becomes increasingly ubiquitous within independent horror—dare I say, more than zombies—I find myself less and less concerned with any justification for why anyone is still filming. It is after all, an accepted rule or necessity of this type of fiction. The why seems increasingly irrelevant, especially since most often the answer lies in budget. So it’s nice for a spell that both the general concept of, and the reason main character Evan is filming his post-trauma sister in, ABSENCE is intriguing. It is not nice, and ultimately frustrating however that Evan may be the most grating “never-stop-filming” character in all of found footage.

    Here’s where it starts to get busy, and hard decisions will have to be made.

The big draws continue to be television though, with THE WALKING DEAD hitting Hall H and will surely fill every inch. Metallica, Drew Struzan and ORPHAN BLACK are also present.
