Foxfur (2012)

Written and directed by Damon Packard

Featuring Paris Wagner, Rigg Kennedy, Khris Kaneff, Yvonne Kirsten, Amanda Mullins, Stef Dawson, Erica Rhodes, Angel Corbin, Cassie Yeager, Sarah de la Isla, Marita Gumsrod, Tessie Tracey, Lori McShane, Cassandra Nuss, Bob Ellis

Damon Packard’s newest heavily-edited masterpiece is the (almost) feature-length fantasy film Foxfur, about a young woman and her dangerous obsession with dolphins, Plieadians, energy, and new age book shops.

However, because of a constricted budget which led to an inability to shoot the entire narrative script, and thanks to Damon’s irrepressible genius for utilizing editing techniques and special effects, Foxfur becomes a non-linear experience about alternate realities starring a bevy of charismatic, and very different-looking, actresses all playing the same character in various and often unrelated scenes. Foxfur has probably the most cohesive narrative structure of all of his films, but it is definitely not linear and is more

DVD Review: Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt

DVD Review: Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt
Title: Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt Directed by: Charles Band Starring: Erica Rhodes, Olivia Alexander and Chelsea Edmundson Running time: 71 minutes, Not Rated Jenna asks her four hot girlfriends to help her decorate her mom’s house into a Halloween Haunt, they decide to hang out and party afterward by drinking, getting scantily clad and watch a DVD: The Killer Eye.

There was an actual Killer Eye film, which totally sucks, but the original Killer Eye movie [ Read More ]

'The Theatre Bizarre' Review

by Colleen Wanglund, MoreHorror.com

While I’ve seen more than a few indie horror anthologies of late—some good, others forgettable—the anthology film seems to be making a comeback. Like the classic George Romero/Stephen King Creepshow (1982) and the impending The ABCs Of Death due out later this year, The Theatre Bizarre (2011) is one of those films that lives up to its buzz….and fans’ expectations. Six shorts linked by framing scenes make up The Theatre Bizarre, a film being distributed by Severin Films.

The film’s opening and framing segments, directed by Jeremy Kasten (Wizard Of Gore {2007}) titled “Theatre Guignol” star the wonderfully bizarre Udo Kier as a life-size marionette and story teller in an abandoned theater. Virginia Newcomb plays a young woman obsessed with the old theater, who sneaks into it one fateful night to hear the strange stories. Throughout the segments are a cast of weird,

Killer Eye Sequel Trailer Teases Hot Girl-on-Eyeball Action

Hollywood just doesn’t make enough movies about horny alien eyeballs that shoot lasers and stalk nubile young women in search of prime breeding stock. That’s why the world needs filmmakers like Charles Band and movies like Killer Eye: Haunted Halloween.

I’ve already written regarding my near disbelief that Charles Band would even be interested in making a sequel to the 1999 softcore stinker The Killer Eye, a movie about an inter-dimensional eyeball looking to procreate. I seem to recall Jacqueline Lovell naked hentai eyeball action being the only thing worth watching in the 1999 Full Moon flick The Killer Eye. Did that movie go and develop a cult following while I wasn’t looking, or does Charles Band just instinctively understand that one doesn’t need a good reason to make a movie about hypnotic disembodied eyeball rape?

From the looks of the trailer, Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt could

Mike's Hidden Horror Gems: 'Plague Town' (2008)

by Michael Pickle, MoreHorror.com

My next installment of Hidden Horror Gems is the ultra-creepy, low-budget, inventive and visual horror shocker from first time director David Gregory. Plague Town, from Dark Sky Films, is one of my favorite and most watched horror films in recent years for many reasons.

A healthy balance of gothic atmosphere, well structured, original and fresh musical score, well crafted and striking shots, great special effects and naturally effective sound effects make for a pitch perfect bombardment of the senses. The best you are likely to see on such a meager budget.

Plague Town is set up perfectly by an opening scene in which a priest comes to a modest cottage to deliver a baby and tries to shoot it when it comes out deformed. In present day; a family, who immediately appears dysfunctional, are vacationing in Ireland and get dropped off in the middle of

The Girls of Plague Town

With exclusive on-set photos and a clip below…

Imperiled heroines struggling to survive, or malevolent forces of youthful evil, their pretty features contorted into visages of horror—such are the casting options most frequently available to young actresses in cinematic fright fare. Plague Town, which hits DVD this week from Dark Sky Films, offered both, as a family on vacation in a remote part of Ireland becomes stranded in a village where the local children have deformities on their faces and murder in their hearts.

Fango had the chance to speak to the performers on each side of this equation over the course of a long, eventually chilly night on Plague Town’s Connecticut location. Not surprisingly, a good deal of the interviews take place in a Ymca camp building that has become the production’s makeup HQ, where Josslyn DeCrosta and Erica Rhodes, as sisters Molly and Jessica Monahan,

Plague Town - DVD Review

Maybe we.re seeing some fallout of the obsession with torture porn flicks and more reliance on creeps to scare - not that there.s not some red stuff in this film mind you. Plague Town is an excellent, creepy throwback horror film that provides chills and will certainly keep you from planning an Irish vacation. The Monahan family is on a trip to Ireland to look up dad.s roots. Jerry (David Lombard) has brought the kids along to hopefully let his daughters bond with Annette (Lindsay Goranson), his fiancée. His daughter Jessica (Erica Rhodes) is having none of it and invited Robin (James Walker), a fellow that she just met on the trip, to accompany them into the Irish

Plague Town (Film Review)

Even as it has become a cliché of the new horror wave for filmmakers to say that their projects aim for the spirit of ’70s chillers, movies that genuinely evoke that veneer are few and far between. There’s a certain vibe about the decade’s drive-in fare that’s hard to define and harder to capture, no matter how much gritty photography, explicit gore and cannibal-dinner-table setpieces one incorporates. One new production that gets it, and gets it right, is Plague Town (coming May 12 on DVD from Dark Sky Films), the feature writing/directing debut of David Gregory—perhaps not surprising, since he has previously made his name as a producer of documentaries and DVD extras celebrating films of the era, most notably Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Shocking Truth.

It’s also thus not surprising that Plague Town adopts the Texas Chainsaw template of a squabbling fivesome who travel

Hff 08: Review of Plague Town

Year: 2008

Release date: DVD Spring 2009

Director: David Gregory

Writers: David Gregory & John Cregan

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: cyberhal

Rating: 7.7 out of 10

An Irish village full of zombie-ghoul children in Michael Myers masks, a dysfunctional American family on a visit to the Auld Country to get in touch with their roots. And verily the blood did flow, and we did find it pleasing. You've got to check out (probably dead) Rosemary, the freaky eyed chick with skin that goes crunchy crunch when she lovingly rubs the hand of the live boy she wants to have a baby with. She's the one in the poster for the movie. Plague Town is director John Gregory's first feature and it's written with his mate John Cregan. For one million bucks they did a brilliant job, and I hope they do a load more, and people give them more money. Not everything
