    Madrid gets macabre, debuting Nocturna Film Festival

    Spain natives, be prepared to be scared from June 3rd to June 9th, as the International Fantastic Film Festival Nocturna 2013, debuts in Madrid! To be held at the city’s Palafox Cinemas, Nocturna will be the host to many great genre titles this year, both inside and out of competition.

    Films competing for the official awards include HOME SWEET HOME, French director David Morlet’s follow-up to 2009’s MUTANTS; Chad Kinkle’s JUG FACE, featuring BLADE RUNNER star Sean Young and genre icon Larry Fessenden; the first-ever Russian zombie film, WINTER OF THE DEAD (a.k.a. METELETSA), from director Nikolai Pigarev; the neo-gialli TULPA from SHADOW’s Federico Zampaglione; and Jean Carlos Medina’s buzz-worthy INSENSIBLES (a.k.a. PAINLESS), which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival to much acclaim.

    More innovative and transgressive titles within the genre will be featured in the Nocturna Dark Visions category, which includes prolific indie filmmaker H.P. Mendoza’s newest film, I AM A GHOST, which garnered rave reviews last year, including the Bram Stoker International Film Festival’s Best Picture award. Especially gruesome or hilarious titles can be seen in the Nocturna Madness category, including Conor McMahon’s killer clown flick STITCHES, as well as the action-packed genre mash-up TIKTIK: THE ASWANG CHRONICLES, from director Erik Matti. And short-form cinema will be featured as well in the Nocturna Shots category, with the films in competition still to be announced. Every film in competition is also in competition for the Audience Awards, bestowed via popular vote amongst the Nocturna audiences.

    However, Nocturna also offers plenty to fright fans outside of the competition, including the Danielle Harris/John Jarratt starring horror flick SHIVER from DARKLANDS director Julian Richards; Rodrigo Gudiño’s debut feature film, THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROSALIND LEIGH, featuring Academy-Award winner Vanessa Redgrave; and the premiere of Victor Matellano’s WAX, with the cast and crew in attendance, and featuring the last on-screen performance of Paul Naschy (thanks to the film’s special FX wizardy). Nocturna will also screen a retrospective series of deserving genre films in its Nocturna Classics section, which has yet to be revealed.

    Last, but certainly not least, Nocturna 2013 will pay homage to some of the most significant names in fantastic cinema in their Masters of Fantastic category. Aside from hosting a ceremony for the Masters of Fantastic Award, the category will also host films relevant to the recipient, which this year is none other than MASTERS OF HORROR creator and frequent Stephen King adaptation filmmaker Mick Garris!

    For more information, as well as impending announcements on featured films, a full list of awards and to purchase tickets to Nocturna 2013, please visit Nocturna Film Festival.

    You can own the “JOHN DIES AT THE END” meat monster

    Don Coscarelli’s JOHN DIES AT THE END is an intensely bizarre, endearing trip of a movie. One of the highlights is undoubtedly the old-school FX that went into creating the jaw dropper of a meat monster that comes together from reanimated cuts of flesh. Created by Robert Kurtzman, that same slab of creature is now available to display, or wear!

    Trailer: The deadpan “EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL”

    Art is hard, and in EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL it comes at the expense of others’ lives. The film, which premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival is hitting VOD April 5 and its new trailer looks to tell a bloody, darkly comedic tale of inspiration.

    When Lars’s art dealer Ronny arranges a teaching job in a small town as a “therapeutic measure” to stir up his creative juices, things don’t quite turn out as planned.  At first, life in the peaceful small town seems rosy, as he settles in and impresses beautiful fellow colleague Leslie (Georgina Reilly) by taking in the brawny, mute Eddie (Dylan Smith) after the latter’s caregiver passes away. But Lars soon discovers that the façade of serenity hides something unimaginable: Eddie suffers from a rare form of sleepwalking that transforms him from a docile, cereal-obsessed art student into a ravenous sleepwalkingcannibal. Initially horrified by Eddie’s dark secret, Lars becomes enthralled by the not-so-gentle giant. Exceptional art comes at a very high price…and how far is Lars willing to go for his next masterpiece?

    For more on EDDIE, you can see our Tribeca Film Fest review here, and pick up Fango #322 (on sale now) for a chat with director Boris Rodriguez.

    “INHUMAN RESOURCES”: Tom Savini sees “Redd,” Part One

    Tom Savini is one name Fangorians and even average horror fans should instantly recognize. In person the makeup FX maven is incredibly enthusiastic for everything. He’s in possession of a childlike wonder that is constantly in use (he names the furry cover this writer uses on the microphone on his faithful recording device, “Basil”), and he exudes an energy that you can see has obviously got him through the worst days on set.

    Full “WORLD WAR Z” trailer: Is this what a zombie blockbuster looks like?

    The undead are ubiquitous in popular culture. While they still toil in the classic roots of outbreak and post-apocalypse on AMC, last year saw them enter children’s film and February brought us a teen-focused romantic comedy. Now, with the big screen adaptation of Max Brooks’ novel,  we have our first zombie blockbuster—which looks none too different than a typical global disaster film.

    The full trailer for WORLD WAR Z sells little of the zombies, themselves. They are pure digital chaos, and seem to be a stand-in for any sort of pandemic. Instead, the preview paints familiar strokes of an everyman, his enjoyable family breakfast and soon, the global mission he’s on to stop the entire world from crumbling.

    Marc Forster directs. Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos and David Morse star. WORLD WAR Z is out June 21. [iTunes]
