  • Exclusive: Jeffrey Combs and Stuart Gordon plotting “NEVERMORE” movie

    by: Vivienne Vaughn on: 2013-02-04 17:01:54

    Fango got the scoop that the creators of NEVERMORE: AN
    EVENING WITH EDGAR ALLAN POE, the highly acclaimed one-man stage show about the
    tortured master of horror literature, is on track for the screen.

    Actor Jeffrey Combs revealed to us that a film adaptation of
    the play, directed and written by frequent movie collaborators Stuart Gordon
    and Dennis Paoli respectively, is currently in the works. “We’re waiting to get
    a screenplay version finished, which should be pretty soon,” Combs tells Fango.
    “Then we’re going to attempt a Kickstarter campaign for it to try to begin

    The play, for which Combs won raves for portraying Poe, had
    a tremendously successful, extended run at Hollywood’s Steve Allen Theater in
    2009, then played special engagements in several other cities. However, despite
    all the praise and popularity NEVERMORE has garnered, future productions seem
    unlikely. “Not at this point,” Combs says. “All it takes is for me to grow a
    mustache. and I can do it. It’s a little bit frustrating; I obviously don’t
    live in New York and what I’ve come to find out is, in order to get plays like
    this booked, you have to have a booking agent, and all of them are in New York.
    Any attempt I’ve made to get them interested in my show, and pointing out the
    success that it’s had and the following it’s got, has fallen on deaf ears.
    Unfortunately, New York is a bit myopic; if it isn’t in New York, then it
    really doesn’t have a lot of validity. That’s sort of the nature of the beast;
    I can’t get upset about it, it’s just the case.” We’ll keep you posted on
    further developments. Combs’ new horror feature WOULD YOU RATHER opens in
    limited theatrical release and on VOD from IFC Films this Friday, February 8;
    stay tuned for a feature interview with Combs on that film, and find out about
    a free NYC screening on Thursday, Feb. 7 here

  • The Devil lifts us up; New “LAST EXORCISM PART II” Poster

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-04 15:47:04

    Backbends are passé. Nell and Abalam have moved on to religious iconography. 

    Directed by SMALL TOWN MURDER SONGS’ Ed Gass-Donnelly, THE LAST EXORCISM PART II continues the plight of poor Nell Sweetzer. Following the black mass birth at the end of the first film, (as per official synopsis) she is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can’t remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning.

    You can find the latest one-sheet, a vast improvement over the first, below (dig those hand prints on her arms). For more on THE LAST EXORCISM PART II, pick up Fango #321 (on sale this month) for an exclusive talk with star Ashley Bell, and keep an eye on Fangoria.com for words with Donnelly and producer Eli Roth.

    Rotterdam Q&A: Richard Raaphorst on “FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY”

    “I hope you will be just as scared as I am
    right now, standing in front of you all!” Dutch director Richard Raaphorst sure
    knew how to introduce the world premiere of his film at the International Film
    Festival in Rotterdam. While FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY might not be as nerve-racking
    as the première of your first horror flick, it sure is a hell-of-a-lot of fun.

    “HALLEY” (Rotterdam Movie Review)

    The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) is known throughout the world for its all-encompassing program: all genres, from all seven continents. Well, to be honest we haven’t heard anything from Antarctica for a while now, but they’ll be back, rest assured. As always the focus in this year’s 42nd edition rests on human interest, but as far as genre films are concerned, there’s enough to keep us interested. HALLEY, for example, is a very bleak Mexican horrordrama that will make you think twice about dreaming of life eternal.

    in Louisiana for several decades now. His debut at the helm, 1975’s HARD TIMES,
    was shot in New Orleans; he ventured into the bayou for the 1981 action/horror
    hybrid SOUTHERN COMFORT; and went back to the Big Easy for 1989’s JOHNNY
    HANDSOME. Now he’s making the city’s streets run red again with the Sylvester
    Stallone-starring revenge thriller BULLET TO THE HEAD, his first feature in 10
