Ten of the Best at FrightFest 2015

9 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The August bank holiday weekend in London is always cause for celebration for horror fans as the FrightFest horror and genre film festival rolls into the city’s Leicester Square for four days of blood-spattered cinematic mayhem. This year saw the arrival of horror icon and star of Re-Animator and You’re Next, Barbara Crampton, as the Guest of Honour who starred in no less than five of the entries this year including festival favourite We Are Still Here. As always with film festivals it was a real mixed bag, with very few scares but a lot of laughs (some intentional, other not so much) as the filmmakers, many of them horror fans themselves, had a lot of fun playing with the tropes and clichés of the genre while others tried to put fresh new spins on some well-worn material. Here are a few of the highlights:

We Are Still Here review [FrightFest 2015]: “A solid horror film”

1 September 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We Are Still Here review: Frightening and moving, this is a solid horror film… We Are Still Here review

Director: Ted Geoghegan

Cast: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie, Larry Fessenden, Monte Markham

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 83 minutes

Synopsis: A grieving couple become prey to a group of vengeful spirits.

Producer and writer Ted Geoghegan lands with his debut feature film as a director. The Lucio Fulci inspired horror is a very classical tale within the genre, keeping things hauntingly simple. You have a bereaved couple escape to a new home where the locals are weird and the noises at night even weirder. That’s all you need to know, and there are some surprises along the way.

Taking his inspiration very seriously, Geoghegan and cinematographer Karim Hussain, have created an elegant throwback and homage to 70s classics. The film looks so much like a 70s film, it looks more like »

Fantasia 2015: ‘We Are Still Here’ – What’s not to love?

21 July 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We Are Still Here

Directed by Ted Geoghegan

Written by Ted Geoghegan

USA, 2015

Taking cues from late ’70’s /early ’80s horror (primarily director Lucio Fulci’s The House by the Cemetery and John Carpenter’s The Fog), writer/director Ted Geoghegan’s directorial debut We Are Still Here doesn’t break new ground, but serves as a suspenseful and well-crafted old-fashioned ghost story.

Geoghegan’s concept is pretty straightforward; a period piece set in 1979 about a married couple Anne (Barbara Crampton) and Paul (Andrew Sensenig) who relocate to a new home in rural New England after a car accident takes the life of their only son Bobby. The pair has hopes that a fresh start will bring them some closure only Anne feels a strange presence in the house and believes that her child’s spirit is following them. When spooky occurrences originate from the basement, and neighbor Dave (Monte Markham »

Fantasia 2015 Must See Films (Week One)

9 July 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

My original plan was to publish a list of my ten most anticipated films screening at the Fantasia Film Festival but considering the incredible line-up this year, I find it near impossible to narrow it down to only ten. So instead I’ve decided to select one movie a day, or better yet, the movie that you should choose if you only had time for one.

Day 1. Tangerine

Christmas Eve in Tinseltown!

If you’re not familiar with director Sean Baker start taking notes. The man is a genius and one of the best indie American filmmakers working today. In Starlet, Baker spun an unlikely friendship between a young porn actress and an old lady in the San Fernando Valley. In Prince of Broadway, he chronicled the struggles of a hustler balancing fatherhood while working in New York’s wholesale district. Baker’s work avoids labels by refusing to adhere »

We Are Still Here – The Review

3 June 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Some of the best and surprising films, not just in horror but all genres, are the ones that sneak up on you and catch you off guard. To be more specific, small films that seemingly come out of nowhere, without warning, and despite their having an otherwise mild-mannered appearance, turn out to have quite a surprising impact.

Written and directed by Ted Geoghagan, We Are Still Here is one of these little modestly made films that speak quietly but carry a big stick. Wash, as I will refer to it from here on out, is a superbly made film that does not strike you as such upon the first viewing. Instead, its a film that nags at you and eats away at your mind after the viewing has ended. For myself, I came away from my initial viewing thinking only mediocre thoughts of its content, but as I soon realized, »

Watch the Brandon Cronenberg directed video for Jooj

8 April 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In Brandon Cronenberg’s directorial debut, Antiviral – two competing companies in the thriving field of celebrity disease transfusions make it their business to harvest viruses from famous people and infect customers with clones of that virus, so they have, in essence, fallen ill from their favourite celebrity. If that wasn’t enough to send shivers down your spine, there’s also a black market for meat formed out of cloned celebrity muscle cells. Antiviral is a satire of celebrity fandom – a cold and clinical look at consumerism, modern technology, and the stuff that is making us a little less human. This isn’t much of a horror film, but it does conclude with an abrupt piece of ghoulishly vampiric symbolism. Now Cronenberg and Dp Karim Hussain have teamed up once again to direct the music video for “Shoulder and Whispers,” which looks like the pilot episode of a Canadian version of American Horror Story. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘We Are Still Here’

19 March 2015 12:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We Are Still Here” makes a concerted effort to mimic the style of certain 70s/early ’80s supernatural thrillers — Lucio Fulci’s “The House by the Cemetery” (1981) is one clear model here, with its slightly “off” foreigner’s vision of American life and crude yet effective ghoul in the basement. Ted Geoghegan’s feature directing debut somewhat awkwardly straddles straight-up horror and tongue-in-cheek homage, its humor seldom foregrounded yet still sufficiently omnipresent to somewhat undermine the scares. Still, genre fans with a sense of history should make this entertaining chiller a sought-after item for midnight slots, and a welcome pickup for specialty home-format distribbers.

A rare horror exercise whose characters are nearly all well into middle age, “We Are Still Here” introduces the Sacchettis as they drive toward their new home in upstate New York in the dead of winter. Both are grieving the recent loss of their only child, »
