Things may have been quiet on the Brandon Cronenberg front since the release of Antiviral but that doesn't mean he hasn't been hard at work. No, Cronenberg's hard at work developing future feature ideas and while those are percolating he recently reteamed with cinematographer Karim Hussain to direct a music video for local electronic music artist Animalia for her track Stifling from their latest album Mouth Full Of Teeth. And - as you would hope - it's a weird one. Check it out below!...

*Editor’s note: Icons’ own Justin R. Lafleur was awesome enough to not only conduct this interview, but to do it with a filmmaker that holds a special place with Icons of Fright. Dante Tomaselli was one of the very first interviews conducted for Icons, back in an interview that Rob G. did in 2004..a full decade ago. What better way to celebrate a “Decade of Fright”, than by catching up with someone whose career has grown, just as Icons has grown. We’re all very stoked on this one, and we hope you readers are as well!-Jerry
Rejoice film freaks! Visionary director Dante Tomaselli is back with what can arguably be called his best film yet, the recently released Torture Chamber! All his trademark obsessions are on display (the inversion of religious iconography, Catholic mysticism, demonic forces hovering at the edges of the everyday and children who may »
*Editor’s note: Justin R. Lafleur put together this list and wrote a bit about five short films that you should check out. Good stuff, so be sure to give them a watch asap! -Jerry
The life of a short horror film can be a thankless existence. It begins its conception removed from the advance buzz and fanfare that frequently accompanies more prestigious titles with greater running lengths. It is created, essentially, in a vacuum. Nobody covers its production, be it pre or post. By and large, we are unaware of its presence until after it has completed its journey throughout film festivals of varying esteem. This is, of course, a short film’s first shot at momentary renown. Sometimes it achieves that glory, or at the very least, a few favorable words written about its merits on the fringes of the internet. Many times it will get lost amongst »
Hannibal Season 2, Episode 2 “Sakizuki”
Directed by Tim Hunter
Written by Bryan Fuller
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Et on NBC
Hannibal season 2 serves a second course with “Sakizuke,” the grandest guignol Bryan Fuller and director Tim Hunter have produced yet. Will Graham assists the FBI in tracing down a serial killer from within his cell, while Hannibal Lecter continues his mind games. Hannibal delivers another standout episode; and “Sakizuke,” ranks with the most upsetting of them.
Most interesting is how the first two episodes of season two play out like a feature length film. Here we have a serial killer who’s constructing a human mural, with bodies sewn together within a silo, so when viewed from above, they form the image of an eye. The opening sequence in “Sakizuki” is not for the faint of heart, as one of the victims of the skin tone killer awakens amidst the mass of dead bodies, »
