  • Teaser Poster: Second film from ‘RABIES” duo, “BIG BAD WOLVES”

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-25 18:34:32

    Co-directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who wowed audiences a plenty with the slasherless slasher RABIES, return.

    Expectation and anticipation is undoubtedly high for BIG BAD WOLVES, the second feature from the Israeli team of Keshales and Papushado. Their first horror film, RABIES (KALEVET), and a first for Israel, was a witty, surprisingly fresh, dark tale of youth run amok in the woods. It also contained a healthy distrust of authority, which looks to carry over in BIG BAD WOLVES, a film about brutal murders and the three men whose lives are most impacted by them. Twitch revealed the poster and synopsis:

    “A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: The father of the latest victim now out for revenge; a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law; and the main suspect in the killings, a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.”

    BIG BAD WOLVES is now in post production.

  • Toronto! Get your horror soundtrack groove-on at “FEAR STREET”

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-02-25 15:59:39

    Nestled in the deep, dark, dangerous Toronto Dundas/Ossington strip is a grotty spot called Sex Laser. Yes…Sex Laser.

    “It’s just as sketchy as it sounds…” says Larissa Thomas, who hosts and DJ’s her bloody brainchild FEAR STREET, a weekly booze drenched, blood splattered dance party where the best in horror score grooves.
    Thomas is a well known figure in underground comics. She’s a writer, cartoonist and general pop culture powerhouse who has channeled her love of horror and weird music into this awesome night. Sex Laser is suitably greasy with comfy sofas, cheap drinks and a cash only bar. The perfect venue for some solid, fun, sleazy thrills.

    The event goes down every Wednesday 9:30 p.m.- 2 a.m. at Sex Laser (1369 Dundas St. W in the sexy/seedy west end).

    To find out more about FEAR STREET follow Larissa on Twitter at @larissa_thomas

    “STOKER” (Sundance Movie Review)

    In its cryptic opening scene, Park Chan-wook sets the tone of STOKER, his English-language debut, with a monologue and the sound of the world in which the film takes place. STOKER prides itself on not being a conventional genre picture by any means, but the hypnotic rhythm in which the film unfolds will undoubtedly keep any audience transfixed.

    Q&A: Rob Himebaugh on his Bigfoot short, “EAGLEWALK”

    Writer/director Rob Himebaugh’s thesis film EAGLEWALK has been stomping its way across North America in a momentum-gathering festival run, leaving a strong buzz in its wake. The film aims to revive the Sasquatch subgenre, taking an often playfully handled beastie and returning it to its sinister roots. This is what a Bigfoot movie should be. Frightening, taut, and fun.
