    Psychopalooza: Spanish web series “BLOODY JUSTICE” mixes reality with brutality

    If you were to ask a horror fanatic what is killing pop culture, chances are more than a few may speak the words, “reality shows.” Yet for fans of a genre that so embraces found footage and voyeurism, it’s a surprise that few have previously tried to capitalize on the trend (Maurice Deveraux’ 2001 $LA$HER$ being a rare example). I’m sure THE REAL WORLD: TWIN PEAKS or SURVIVOR: CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE would have more than a sizeable audience. However, Spanish filmmaker Pablo Morales de los Rios is offering you the next best thing: BLOODY JUSTICE!

    Director comments and logline for FANGORIA Kickstarter film revealed

    We held out as long as we could, but now with our Kickstarter campaign going live next week, and owing to the many thousands of requests for a specific storyline for THE FACILITY (our FANGORIA Original Kickstarter production, which we last told you about here), we are caving in. If the A-Team were instead a small group of your every day garden variety National Guardsmen, activated during Hurricane Sandy to guard and protect an isolated government building—and they met Dr. Moreau(!)—you would have some sort of idea of what this movie is about.

    “WOMAN IN BLACK” sequel casts leads

    Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox (he, of WAR HORSE and she, of BBC series BLACK MIRROR) will lead the sequel to last year’s old-fashioned ghost story from Hammer Films.

    In keeping with the atmospheric, period setting of the James Watkins-directed first, THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH will be based in World War II as Eel Marsh House is converted into a shelter for evacuated children. Of course, that’s who the titular specter of Susan Hill’s classic novel most readily preys upon.

    UK filmmaker Tom Harper, who’s mainly toiled in television (including two episodes of the incredible sequel miniseries THIS IS ENGLAND ’86) helms, while Jon Croker scripts.

    “JUDGE DREDD: YEAR ONE” #2 (Comic Review)

    Despite the overwhelming artistic success of Judge Dredd in the UK, there have been few attempts to work with the character stateside. DC comics had a short run with the gun-toting officer in the mid-90s, but unfortunately only lasted a whopping eighteen issues before getting shut down. That’s not to say that the Judge did not explode as a media gold mine, ranging from toys and video games to books and movies. Though as far comic books go, he never quite generated the same interest as he did abroad. But, perhaps thanks in part to the new DREDD movie, he has once again been given a chance to show off his trademark brand of justice in one of the latest IDW Publishing additions, JUDGE DREDD: YEAR ONE.

    Q+A: The Director of “CHUCK NORRIS VS.COMMUNISM” talks 80s exploitation, media revolution and Indiegogo

    There is a synchronicitous plethora of films either just released or in the works about the 80s VHS explosion – from Josh Johnson and Carolee Mitchell’s SXSW hit REWIND THIS to Mike Malloy’s PLASTIC MOVIES REWOUND, Dan Kinem and Levi Peretic’s ADJUST YOUR TRACKING and Mark Hartley’s Cannon Films-focused ELECTRIC BOOGALOO – but while there’s no doubt that all these films document a game-changing media revolution whose practical and nostalgic effects linger on today, how many of their directors can  claim that VHS actually helped to overthrow a totalitarian regime in their country? Ilinca Calugareanu can.
