Well, OK, Feldman doesn’t confront all three of those things; they’re the subjects of a group of upcoming genre releases that DVD outfit Cinema Epoch gave us the scoop and the cover art on, though the LOST BOYS star does topline one of them.
Director JimmyO Burril gave Fango the scoop that he has decided to release a new DVD of his occult flick THE GOOD SISTERS, in an unrated director’s cut with a remastered picture and enhanced sound.
• R2 Films gave Fango the news that it has picked up WOMEN’S STUDIES, writer/director Lonnie Martin’s feminism-oriented fright feature, and set a DVD release date under its Big Bite Entertainment banner.
Various sources are reporting that Overture Films’ remake of THE CRAZIES got off to a solid start in its first weekend of release, placing third on the box-office chart.
Indie filmmakers Mike Watt and Amy Lynn Best have announced that their decade-in-the-making zombie opus THE RESURRECTION GAME will make its official DVDebut April 30 as a 10th Anniversary Edition, and passed on the cover art and details.
Dark Sky Films sent along a couple of advance on-set photos from HYPOTHERMIA, the literal chiller it’s producing in conjunction with Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix. See them after the jump.
• Fango got the word that AMER (pictured), the much-acclaimed new French/Belgian giallo-esque feature from filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, will be part of the upcoming New Directors/New Films festival at New York City’s Lincoln Center.
My need to hold onto outdated technology was finally rewarded when Fango’s Bekah McKendry stumbled upon a box of VHS tapes discarded from a local Blockbuster. Yeah, I have a VCR. And yeah, I have a sizable collection of VHS tapes that I still watch. Some movies just work better on VHS—it manages to capture the original feeling of the film, and in the case of Ken Russell’s 1980 film ALTERED STATES, the format manages to make a cult classic still feel relevant. Why would Blockbuster ever throw this away?
Fango spoke to Brazilian-American athlete-turned-actor Raw Leiba about his upcoming genre flick FABLE: TEETH OF BEASTS. The actor stars in the Sean-Michael Argo-directed feature alongside busy indie-genre actresses Melantha Blackthorne and Seregon O’Dassey.
It pains me to think about some of the important things I missed growing up. Things like never trying out for the high-school football team, that girl in my art class I never asked out—and not seeing BRAIN DAMAGE.
The remake of THE CRAZIES opens on an apocalyptic setpiece—a small-town main street engulfed in flames—that probably cost more than all of the 1973 George A. Romero film that inspired it. Thankfully, the film that follows makes a case for reworking a low-budget cult fave with a budget that can truly serve the subject matter.
Back in 1990, author and film critic (and Fango contributor) Maitland McDonagh first published BROKEN MIRRORS/BROKEN MINDS: THE DARK DREAMS OF DARIO ARGENTO, an in-depth study of the Italian maestro of horror cinema. Now she’s let us know that an expanded and updated version of the book is on the way.
