Beyond Fright: Brand New Music Video How, Who By Rivulets

15 April 2013 4:33 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Adam Barnick, who has directed quite a few behind the scenes documentaries on films such as Adam Green’s Frozen, Paul Solet’s Grace and Stevan Mena’s Bereavement, has been hard at work directing a set of music videos for Rivulets, a singer-songwriter project fronted by Nathan Amundsen. We couldn’t be more happy to show the videos to you readers, as they’re pretty awesome, but also because Barnick is not only a great filmmaker, but part of the Icons of Fright team as well. Check out his new video for Rivulet’s “How, Who“, along with the previous video Adam directed, “I Don’t Want to Be Found“.

Exclusive Interview: Stevan Mena On The 'Malevolence' Trilogy

8 April 2013 1:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

For myself personally, I've been a huge fan of filmmaker Stevan Mena ever since I first caught a theatrical showing of his debut feature 'Malevolence' back in 2004. You have to keep in mind what was going on in horror at the time. The two ficks I'd seen prior to 'Malevolence' were 'Aliens Vs Predator' and 'The Exorcist: The Beginning,' so I had pretty much given up on the genre at that point. But thankfully, Mena's brutal and relentless "slasher" perfectly captured the essence of the movies I grew up loving; so much so that I later had to reconfirm it was a new movie and not something from the 80's only at that time finally getting a release. But 'Malevolence' was always intended to be the middle part of a more epic trilogy. 'Bereavement' came out in 2010 and told the prequel story of how Martin Bristol became the killer we see in 'Malevolence. »

8 April 2013 5:19 AM, PDT | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

In 2005, Stevan Mena’s debut feature film Malevolence was a surprise hit when it was released theatrically and on DVD.

Intended as the second act of a sprawling trilogy, fans were rewarded in 2011 when Stevan explored the origins of … Continue reading → »

Stevan Mena Launches Malevolence 3 Kickstarter Campaign

28 March 2013 4:13 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Martin Bristol is back! Well, he could be back – with your support. Writer-director Stevan Mena is looking to complete his particularly violent three-film “Malevolence”/”Bereavement” series, but, in an effort to steer clear of folks who might insist he tone down the brutality, Mena is making this one totally independently. Taking a cue from the recent surge of films successfully funded via Kickstarter, Mena launched his own campaign for “Malevolence 3.” The films come from a book Mena divided into three stories. The first, the basis for the 2004 release, “Malevolence,” focuses on a group of bank robbers who hide out in an abandoned farmhouse after a heist. Little do  [ Read More ]

Malevolence 3 Looking For Victims

26 March 2013 3:02 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Here at Dread Central we're inundated with e-mails every day pertaining to filmmakers who want us to cover their Kickstarter projects. Nine times out of ten we pass because if we didn't we'd be writing all day and who knows if said projects will ever even get made (that is if you're not Veronica Mars).

That being said we only try and cover the ones which we think have a real shot at making it. Such is the case with Stevan Mena and his sequel to both Malevolence and Bereavement entitled Malevolence 3.

Stevan Mena’s ‘Bereavement’ Leads New Premiere Line-Up On The Horror Channel

26 March 2013 5:33 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve received an announcement for the Horror Channel’s impressive spring season film line up, which includes the UK premiere of Stevan Mena’s prequel to his cult slasher hit, Malevolence. Bereavement is led by Texas Chainsaw 3D beauty, Alexandra Daddario and The Terminator’s Michael Biehn, and charts how a young Martin Bristol was turned into the protege of serial-killer, Graham Sutter (Brent Rickaby) from such a young age. Being a huge fan of Mena’s 2003 slasher, I can safely say Bereavement has the same chilling and intense tone as his directorial debut.

Check out the other upcoming genre offerings in the press release below.

Texas Chainsaw 3D Review

5 January 2013 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: John Luessenhopp

Starring: Alexandra DaddarioDan Yeager, Paul Rae, Thom Barry, Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz, Scott EastwoodShaun Sipos, Gunnar Hansen, Tobe Hooper, John Dugan, Marilyn Burns, Bill MoseleyRichard Riehle.

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 92 minutes

Synopsis: A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter the infamous chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward.

Tobe Hooper unleashed his horrifically raw masterpiece The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the world in 1974. It was very loosely based on the real-life crimes of Wisconsin native nutter Ed Gein, who was the inspiration for the limb-lopping loon: Leatherface. Unfairly thrown in amongst the ‘video nasty’ rag-tag bunch here in the UK, Hooper’s infamous low-budget effort was unavailable until 1998 (although in my youth it was known to cross hands in the schoolyard in bootleg video form).

While his original groundbreaking horror lingers in the memory, Hooper »
