Buenos Aires Festival Opens Path for Local Talent

30 March 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Latin America, the combination of muscular government funding, the boom in pay TV households and ironically, lack of stars, is pushing regional filmmakers to try more genres and create original visions. Indeed, Latinos have directed five of the No. 1 movies at the U.S. box office in the past year, including Argentina’s Andres Muschietti (“Mama”), Uruguay’s Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead”) and, of course, Mexico’s Alfonso Cuaron (“Gravity”).

This year, Bal, the Buenos Aires Festival of Independent Cinema’s industry initiative, will again showcase Latin American films in post in its Works in Progress competish. About half will travel to Cannes for Buenos Aires Lab Goes to Cannes, co-organized with the Cannes Market, per Bal co-director Violeta Bava. Bafici runs April 2-13 in Buenos Aires (

Evil Dead’s Fede Alvarez Will Direct The Eighth Episode Of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

26 February 2014 11:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the jury is still out on whether or not Robert Rodriguez remaking his iconic 1996 film From Dusk Till Dawn for his recently launched El Rey television network is a good idea, no amount of fan trepidation is going to delay the arrival of the show, officially titled From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. Set to run for ten episodes starting in March, From Dusk Till Dawn is by far the buzziest project that El Rey currently has going, and the directors involved should alone be enough to attract horror fans of every variety.

Recently, Entertainment Weekly revealed that Rodriguez has locked down Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez to film the pivotal eighth episode of the series. Though few details are known about the episode, it will feature lots of bloody violence going down inside the series’ main locale, a strip club habited by vampires.

Monte’s Favorites of 2013

2 January 2014 12:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

2013 was a great year for horror throughout numerous avenues. Independent film offered some standouts with the disease consuming Contracted, forced intervention Resolution, the creature feature Grabbers, and many more. Hollywood gave us hordes of zombies with the surprising World War Z, a fresh home invasion take with You’re Next, and legitimate scares with The Conjuring.

But horror wasn’t restrained to just film, television made big leaps with Mads Mikkelsen’s great portrayal in Hannibal, the clever re-imaging of Norman in the Bates Motel, and the continuing mayhem offered in Game of Thrones. Still, horror couldn’t be stopped as music jumped into the mix with superb soundtracks released from Death Waltz, Waxwork, and One Way Static records. And it didn’t end there because horror was everywhere!!! Here are a few of my favorites from 2013:

Heather’s Favorites of 2013

1 January 2014 3:30 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Happy 2014 Everyone! Looking back, I thought 2013 was an exceptional year for horror, especially for independent genre fare that ended making up most of my favorite films over the last 12 months. In fact, 2013 ended up being so good, even a number of remakes that came out this year managed to be as strong as their original horror peers and that’s pretty damn impressive.

Here’s a look at some of my very favorite things that happened in horror along the way during 2013:

John Dies at the End:

I’d been waiting patiently to see Don Coscarelli’s John Dies at the End ever since I chatted him up about the project at SXSW 2012. Thankfully, the film didn’t disappoint at all when it was released last January. Wonderfully weird and oddly heartfelt, no one has quite mastered the art of the unexpected like Coscarelli has throughout his career »
