    Just outside of Toronto, Canada is the city of Hamilton, birthplace and deathplace of DARK SHADOWS icon Jonathan Frid and home to a hotbed of horror.

    Blumhouse Producing “HOME” from “LAST HOUSE” director

    Q&A: Quebecois Filmmaker Izabel Grondin on Her Extreme Cinematic Art

    Izabel Grondin’s short film THE TABLE (a.k.a. LA TABLE, pictured above) recently made it into the pre-selection for the Jutra Awards, Quebec’s Oscars that celebrate the best of the province’s cinema. This is no small feat, in that Grondin’s piece was up against over 173 of Quebec’s finest shorts. Also wonderful for cinephiles of a transgressive sort is THE TABLE’s content; as usual, Grondin has produced a work of great beauty, brutality and BDSM, and to see this sort of art recognized at such a prestigious level—that it can be taken seriously and admired as art—bodes well for extreme cinema.

XYZ Films, the production company and sales agency behind the likes of THE RAID 2, SPRING (from RESOLUTION directors Benson & Moorhead) and much more have taken world sales rights for PRESERVATION in anticipation of the upcoming European Film Market and an early glimpse, as well as synopsis on the movie is out.
