    Q&A: Jon Schnepp on “ABCs OF DEATH,” Part One

    The ABC’s of Death (now available on DVD and Blu-ray) is an alphabetized mind fuck through 36 gonzo, gory, and grim horror vignettes, each directed by a noted genre name. The “W” installment, WTF, was handled by Jon Schnepp, known for his work on METALOCALYPSE for which he’s produced, directed and developed the character design. ABC’s is his first foray into being a horror filmmaker, which seems to be where it’s at for this lifelong fan. The style in WTF, inspired by his great admiration for EVIL DEAD II, is definitely “splatstick” and “kitchen sink,” but there is more than one type of horror in Schnepp’s black metal heart. He adores body horror and would love to terrify in the tradition of both Cronenberg and Carpenter (e.g. THE THING). Schnepp was stoked to share his love and enthusiasm of all things geek with Fango.

    “BEHIND THE SCENES OF TOTAL HELL” (Movie Review)

    There’s a great scene in Tim Burton’s ED WOOD in which Wood is talking to a Hollywood producer after dropping off a copy of his first movie, GLEN OR GLENDA?. When the producer tells him that it’s “the worst film I ever saw,” Wood assures him that his next one will be even better. That is the enthusiasm of the independent filmmaker. They are driven to tell stories on celluloid, often without the benefit of a budget, a talented cast, or a clue. The results may turn out brilliantly, but in many cases the results are varying shades of crap.

    New poster to “CARRIE” you through the weekend

    Sure, there’s a new motion poster for Kimberly Peirce’s CARRIE redo, but more than anything, I just want to know why this Keep Calm… trend endures.

    As you probably know, the original Keep Calm and Carry On posters were one of a series of designs from the British Government’s Ministry of Information and produced by His Majesy’s Stationery Office to boost morale midst World War II. The Keep Calm design was never actually displayed for the public, but ended up rediscovered in 2000. Since, it’s become a pop culture display, utilized by almost every niche of fandom and the like, and while it hasn’t gone away, is certainly very, very tired.

    But! Carry and CARRIE are homophones, and so it’s been used in anticipation of the Chloe Moretz-starring adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel. Flashing are scenes specifically from her telekinetic prom mayhem, which if keep getting shown in trailers likely won’t have much of an effect on screen and calmness is exactly how everyone will keep.

    You can see the poster at the CARRIE tumblr.
