    Q&A: “WITCH DOCTOR” scribe Seifert on “MALPRACTICE,” “HELLRAISER”

    Brandon Seifert has come a long way in a very short time. With his partner-in-crime Lukas Ketner, they turned their supernatural/medical creation, WITCH DOCTOR into one of the most well received new series in the past two years. With the second arc, MALPRACTICE, well underway, Seifert is also finding himself penning such iconic works as HELLRAISER for Boom Studios and DR WHO for IDW. Though relatively new to the comic scene, he has shown a talent for story and dialogue that has continued to spur his popularity. He recently sat down with Fango to talk magic, mayhem, and medicine.

    Fango Flashback: “DIAL M FOR MURDER” (1954)

    Hard to believe that two years after the initial 3D craze began in 1952 with exploitationer BWANA DEVIL and had peaked with 1953’s HOUSE OF WAX, that the next year’s DIAL M FOR MURDER, shot in the same showy process, would be relegated to the standard two dimensions upon release. Whereas today 3D has become a fact of moviegoing life and has also made it into the home courtesy of pricey TV sets and space-helmet-like goggles, audiences had grown tired of the gimmick by the time master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock adopted the format for this 1954 Warner Bros. film, a classic thriller starring Grace Kelly and Ray Milland. Back then, Hitchcock said of 3D, “It’s a nine-day wonder, and I came in on the ninth day.” Thanks to New York City’s Film Forum (209 West Houston; [212] 727-8110), you can now rediscover DIAL M FOR MURDER in a gorgeous 3D digital restoration, which opens today and runs through Thursday, April 4.

Lucky for fright film fanatics, Paré has been announced as the lead for THE SHELTER, an upcoming horror film from actor John Fallon, better known to the horror community as “The Arrow” of genre site ARROW IN THE HEAD.

    Video: “HEMLOCK GROVE” gives us a werewolf transformation to be excited about

    Produced and shepherded by Eli Roth (who also directed the pilot), HEMLOCK GROVE sees a small Pennsylvania steel town thrown into disarray from a murder whose culprit seems less than human. As the trailers have noted, this all comes with a somewhat warped sensibility that sees soapy trysts, class warfare and werewolves along the way. The latter is the focus here today, as WonderCon (and now you) got an exclusive look at the upcoming series’ painful, skin-peeling transformation.

    Shots of Jaeger: Meet the latest “PACIFIC RIM” mechs

    In gearing up for a July release and this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, Guillermo del Toro’s latest has a very active social media campaign. This week, the official Facebook has been introducing would-be fans and those who’re very much anticipating the monsters vs. mechs opus to Earth’s last saviors, the Jaegers. Up for a good look is America’s Gipsy Danger (who we’ve only seen in blueprint form), Australia’s Striker Eureka, China’s Crimson Typhoon and Russia’s Cherno Alpha, who looks crushing.

    From writer Travis Beacham and the no-intro-necessary del Toro, PACIFIC RIM is the story of kaiju risen from the sea and the team of tough ass jaegers man has assembled to take them down. The movie is out July 12th in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D, all of which I plan to attend at some point.

    “ROOM 237” (Movie Review)

    Maybe you hold onto one yourself? Some pet theory about a particular film’s hidden patterns, symbolism, subtext or allegory? Undertones that fly past most viewers but, once uncovered and analysed, cannot be ignored? ROOM 237 (in select theaters and on VOD today) is a unique and deceptively simple documentary that features five different people attempting to explain what they perceive to be the true meaning behind Stanley Kubrick’s film of THE SHINING.
