    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]

    JEFF LIEBERMAN’S “LOST” FILM REMOTE CONTROL COMES TO BLU AND DVD!

    Cult NYC based filmmaker Jeff Lieberman is best known for his trifecta of scrappy shockers, 1976’s SQUIRM, 1978’s BLUE SUNSHINE and 1981’s JUST BEFORE DAWN, with many in-the-know viewers having an affinity for his wild 2004 black comedy horror film SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER. But whatever happened to his prophetic 1987 thriller REMOTE CONTROL, you might ask?

    Fango Flashback: “WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?” (1976)

    Perhaps the strongest aspect of Narcisco Ibáñez Serrador’s WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? is its decision to trade backstory for context. There’s no explicit, supernatural reason for the juvenile murderous rampage on the island of Almanzora, but if you’re looking for an explanation why, the real world horrors of the opening titles are a good, if grim, place to start.

    “Strange Frame” (Movie Review)

    I really wanted to like STRANGE FRAME. It has a cast that’s made up of some of the best known names in the exploitation and voice acting field – Tim Curry (ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, LEGEND), Claudia Black (FARSCAPE, STARGATE SG-1), Ron Glass (FIREFLY), Tara Strong (almost every superhero cartoon show), Cree Summer (ditto those superhero cartoons), George Takei (the original STAR TREK), Juliet Landau (BUFFY, ANGEL), Alan Tudyk (FIREFLY, V, DOLLHOUSE), Michael Dorn (STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION, DEEP SPACE NINE) and Claudia Christian (BABYLON 5, HIGHLANDER).

    “COME OUT AND PLAY” (Movie Review)

    [This review was initially published out of Fantastic Fest in September 2012, it is reposted below in light of the film's theatrical and VOD release.] 

    On the surface, COME OUT AND PLAY is simply a flat, soulless remake of one of the killer kid greats, WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? Coupled with one-named director Makinov’s bullshit, it’s a joke.
