    Q&A: Brady Corbet & no philosophy of a “SIMON KILLER”

    Both hypnotic and frightening, SIMON KILLER (out April 5 in select theaters and on VOD April 12) is a film I readily refer to as a sociopathic odyssey (see Fango’s review here). The titular college-aged student abroad in Paris is something of a primal, fickle blank slate but, as with most psychologically unsettling characters, there’s something recognizable as well. Lead actor Brady Corbet who, together with director Antonio Campos, shaped the role confirms as much when throughout our conversation about personality traits and soundtrack choices, points to the film as a reaction against the ever aggressive, dissociative  and misogynistic  world view of today’s young men.

    “EVIL DEAD” (Mike’s Movie Review)

    EVIL DEAD die-hards can calm their concerns—the remake of Sam Raimi’s classic is good enough that, at a certain point, you might forget it’s a remake. Recapturing the essence of its predecessor without slavishly aping its style, the new movie stands on its own and provides buckets of bloody fun.

    Trailer: Zoë Bell & Rachel Nichols to have it out at Tribeca in “RAZE”

    Set to world premiere at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, Josh Waller’s tale of woman-pitted against-woman looks a rough, bare-knuckle take on the “in prison” subgenre.

    In RAZE, “Sabrina (Bell) is abducted, and finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocent women for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done.”

    Rachel Nichols (P2), Bell’s DEATH PROOF co-star Tracie Thoms, TWIN PEAKS’ Sherilyn Fenn (!) and Doug Jones round out the cast. Fango will have words on the film in just a few weeks as Tribeca gets underway. For more, visit the official Facebook, here.

    Demon Man walks goat in latest “LORDS OF SALEM” clip

    Although we differ in opinion (I’m very much in the film’s corner), a friend pretty accurately described THE LORDS OF SALEM as a movie where its strange tendencies and scares all happen around the main character, as opposed to directly to. Sheri Moon Zombie’s Heidi is placed on an ever-descending journey where goofyweird, surreal images lurk in and out of frame; sometimes in full view, and sometimes just we know they’re there. Surprisingly, since their trailer was cut to look more standard VOD horror, Anchor Bay is selling these moments.

    Trailer: Is “THE PURGE” high concept home invasion?

    The latest from cinema’s low budget genre machine Blumhouse (SINISTER, INSIDIOUS) is predicated on a fascinating idea—the seeming extreme of “necessary evil” rationalization—which is one night a year in a now very peaceful America, all crime is legal. Naturally, the haven the country masquerades as erupts in violent chaos and the James DeMonaco-directed picture focuses on how one family aims to make it through the night.

    “THE WALKING DEAD” Robert Kirkman looks ahead

    Now that  season three has sputtered to a conclusion, it’s already time to tease the goings-on of Rick & co. when they return this fall. Creator and series producer Robert Kirkman has done just that, both stressing “how different things are going to be,” and giving an inkling into how the Governor will proceed.
