FANGORIA Hosts LA Screening of Horror-Noir “FRACTURED”


From the minds of director Adam Gierasch and writer Jace Anderson (the duo who gave us FERTILE GROUND, NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, and AUTOPSY), comes the acclaimed horror-noir, FRACTURED and a special FANGORIA-presented screening in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 12th hosted by Fango’s own Rebekah McKendry, with several of the actors in attendance for a brief Q&A with Gierasch following the film.

Inspired in part by noir classics, like Jacques Tourneur’s OUT OF THE PAST (1947), contemporary neo-noir puzzles like David Lynch’s MULHOLLAND DRIVE (2001), and Adrian Lyne’s psychological horror JACOB’S LADDER (1990), Gierasch describes FRACTURED as a cross-genre, phantasmagoric film-noir, in keeping with his interests in the human condition and ‘morally compromised protagonists.’ Gierasch explains, “This is my favorite of all the films I’ve directed, and certainly the most serious in how it raises questions of good vs. evil — although with ample blood.” FRACTURED follows Dylan White who, recently awakened from a coma, finds his simple, perfect new life is anything but, as he is forced to solve the mystery of torturous, violent visions that plague his waking hours and fracture his reality. The clues to this puzzle lead to a bloody, troubling past and a potentially hellish future for Dylan, as he comes to terms with his own actions and guilt. Filled with psycho-sexual intrigue, spiritual and moral quandaries, FRACTURED, explains Gierasch, takes it “farther so our hero is in danger of losing his soul not just his morality.”

The film, shot in 35mm Techniscope, features the special effects talents of Toe Tag, and includes a fitting jazz score. FRACTURED is produced by Gierasch, Jace Anderson, Kate Hoffman, Jay Firestone, Andrew Cohen and Raymond J. Markovich. The film was shot by Scott Winig and is being released by Seven Arts Entertainment and Uncork’d Entertainment.

FRACTURED is in theaters and available on all leading digital media platforms on Friday, April 11, 2014. You can purchase tickets to the film’s Los Angeles showing right here. For more, visit the film’s Facebook page.
