  • Book Review: “SEX AND HORROR: THE ART OF EMANUELE TAGLIETTI” (NSFW)

    ,,

    Artist Emanuele Taglietti is one of the most celebrated masters to emerge from that unique period in 1970’s Italy, when morale shifted and the popular fumetti (Italian comic books, literally translated as “puffs of smoke”, an allusion to speech bubbles) followed more liberal strains of genre cinema and more overt, explicit sexuality was visualized on their covers. Tagleitti, a former set designer who had worked with Fellini, jumped on this, exploiting the comforts of working from home by becoming a full-fledged cover illustrator, nurturing a style that was sensual, lurid, saturated and bristling with energy.

The distributor behind flicks like RARE EXPORTS, BELLFLOWER, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN and COHERENCE, Oscilloscope’s releases often have an exploratory nature to them, venturing into directions and content that is ultimately much different than fans expect, and often to their delight. So with that in mind, Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s acclaimed thriller BODY just skyrocketed towards this writer’s “must-see” list as the film has officially been acquired for North American distribution by O-Scope.

  • “EVERLY” (FANTASTICA Blu-Ray Review)

    ,,

    For genre fans, EVERLY is, on many levels, Joe Lynch’s time to shine without lingering in any specific shadow. While the Troma graduate has made good over the years and developed his skills as a filmmaker, his previous feature films, WRONG TURN 2 and KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, have largely operated against the reputation of a franchise or, in case of the latter, behind the scenes problems. But with EVERLY, Lynch had the chance to create a bloody and badass tale in a universe of his own design, and while the film hits peaks and valleys narratively, the sense of passion in Lynch’s cinematic voice is unmistakable.

    ,

    Remakes can be a tricky thing, with the right creative forces and fresh take on even the most sacred material bearing potentially terrifying fruit. And like it or not, most fright films, no matter how controversial, will find their way to contemporary audiences in the form of a new cinematic voice. However, sometimes said remakes have a silver lining, as it has recently been announced that Sidney J. Furie’s masterful THE ENTITY will be remade by the creative force that brought us THE CONJURING. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director James Wan will produce while writers Chad and Carey Hayes pen the script. Roy Lee, known for bringing Asian horror to American audiences with remakes like THE RING and THE GRUDGE, will produce with Wan.
