    Q&A: Eli Roth, producing “THE LAST EXORCISM PART II”

    This year, audiences awaiting the return of Eli Roth find an embarrassment of riches. On the directorial end, there’s both werewolf-in-a-steel town Netflix original series HEMLOCK GROVE and his Amazonian cannibal odyssey, THE GREEN INFERNO. The sometimes actor scripted and stars in Nicolas Lopez’s Chilean earthquake picture AFTERSHOCK and most relevantly, has lent a guiding hand to emerging talent, producing Ti West’s upcoming THE SACRAMENT and the sequel to one of the more undervalued of recent American genre films, THE LAST EXORCISM PART II (out March 1st). It’s this tale of Southern gothic that has Fango speaking to Roth about his own investment in continuing Nell Sweetzer’s story, how audiences approach foun footage, that which he’s never seen before in a possession film and what his producing legacy aims to be.

  • 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.

    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).

    “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.
