Nick Simon Talks The Girl In The Photographs

20 April 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nick Simon’s terrifying slasher film The Girl In The Photographs is currently impressing audiences in theaters and on VOD and rightfully so, it’s scary as hell. A very unique approach to the genre, Tgitp bypasses a lot of horror tropes, giving horror fans something different and is a film that will most definitely stay with you long after the credits roll. We had a chat with Nick regarding the film, as well as it being the last film master of horror Wes Craven produced before his passing last year. Read on!

How did this project come to fruition and at what point did Wes become involved?

The script was first conceived in 2010. Oz Perkins and myself were talking about how we would love to see something in the slasher realm that hasn’t been done for a while. We came up with the original ideas based on the »

Director Nick Simon on The Girl in the Photographs, Wes Craven, and More!

I first discovered Nick Simon’s work in 2010 when I watched his creepy, unforgettable feature Removal. It was so original – “Gothic horror meets industrial-strength cleaning products in this spine-tingler about a pill-popping cleaning service employee and a sprawling mansion… Continue Reading →

‘The Girl in the Photographs’ Review

5 April 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kal Penn, Claudia Lee, Kenny Wormald, Toby Hemingway, Miranda Rae Mayo, Corey Schmitt, Oliver Seitz, Autumn Kendrick, Eva Bourne, Katharine Isabelle | Written by Nick Simon, Osgood Perkins, Robert Morast | Directed by Nick Simon

When Wes Craven passed away back in August of last year, The Girl in the Photographs instantly went from a film that had been flying under the radars of horror fans to one that was both immediately bittersweet as well as hotly-anticipated. Craven, shortly before his passing, executive produced the independent effort, and it will forever be the final film to bear his name. A sobering and depressing thought, regardless of the movie’s quality – which is of course what we’re here to talk about today.

Written by Nick Simon, Osgood Perkins, and Robert Morast, and directed by Simon, The Girl in the Photographs centers on Colleen, a young woman who is being tormented by »

Interview: Kenny Wormald, Luke Baines and Miranda Rae Mayo Talk The Girl in the Photographs (Exclusive)

3 April 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Naturally being able to rely on your intuition to help guide you to make the right choices and form meaningful connections is a powerful personality trait some people possess that can greatly empower their lives. But for those people who lack the ability to trust their instincts, their lives unfortunately won’t leave them feeling fulfilled. The meaningful examination into both types of people is grippingly presented in the new horror film, ‘The Girl in the Photographs,’ which was directed by Nick Simon, who also co-wrote the script with Robert Morast and Osgood Perkins. The crime thriller, which was distributed into select theaters and on VOD this weekend by Vertical Entertainment,  [ Read More ]

Review: The Girl In The Photographs

1 April 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Wes Craven mentored slasher satire is tired affair. We caught the premiere of director Nick Simon’s The Girl In The Photographs at Tiff 2015 and there was a definite shadow cast over the screening. The film came presented and executive produced by the late Wes Craven, who had passed away only a few weeks prior…

The Girl In The Photographs Review

31 March 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I don’t like speaking ill of the dead, especially icons who’ve defined an entire genre, but name-dropping is a marketing tactic best left for the living. Director Nick Simon’s newest feature film is titled The Girl In The Photographs and I honestly believe I see Wes Craven’s name pop up in connection with this film more than Simon’s. Naturally, with Craven having passed in August of 2015, he’s likely to have had little [if anything] to do with the marketing of this movie, but it would certainly seem like he’s calling the shots from the gave.

Sadly, The Girl In The Photographs is not the shining example of groundbreaking genre filmmaking for which the legendary master posthumously deserves credit. For a man so synonymous with influencing the slasher horror genre, the executive producer credit should have been given more of a backseat while the “For Wes »

[Review] The Girl in the Photographs

31 March 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Nick Simon‘s The Girl in the Photographs seems to be a story reverse-engineered from its final image — which, for a low-budget horror film, is an effective one. No spoilers here, and it wouldn’t matter if there were. By that point, it’s too little and far too late to redeem the film after we’ve been subjected to recycled horror tropes, which predictably clunk their way toward an unsettling final moment. Perhaps this should have been a short and not a ponderous, forgettable feature. In a sense, it’s a horror picture for the selfie generation — fitting, as the narrative is utterly vapid and shallow.

Colleen (Claudia Lee), a South Dakota waitress, begins finding posed photographs of murdered women left at the coffee shop where she works, uncertain if they’re real or staged. They indeed are: the photographers are a pair of deranged backwoods boys who lock »

‘The Girl in the Photographs’ Star Luke Baines Really Can’t Talk About Playing David Bowie for David Fincher

30 March 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Last September, TheWrap’s list of breakout talent at the Toronto International Film Festival included the female cast of Nick Simon’s slasher movie “The Girl in the Photographs,” the final film to boast the involvement of horror icon Wes Craven. Little did we know, however, that it would be the the guy behind the photographs, a young actor named Luke Baines, who would leave the strongest impression as the film’s primary villain — and no, that isn’t a spoiler. “It’s not a secret and it was never meant to be,” Baines hold TheWrap as “The Girl in the Photographs” hits theaters. »

Going Behind the Scenes with The Girl in the Photographs: An Interview with Director Nick Simon & Producer Thomas Mahoney

12 February 2016 5:45 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Playing as part of the 2016 Victoria Film Festival at: The Vic Theatre 808 Douglas St. Victoria, BC  Friday, Feb 12 — 8:45pm The Girl in the Photographs is making its BC premiere during the 2016 Victoria Film Festival and both Thomas Mahoney (who will be in attendance) and director Nick Simon could not be any happier. Both of these producers made this garden city their home away from home when this movie was filming here. Mahoney is one of the many producers involved this film and both have a passion for crafting many a tale of terror. Mahoney made a very Euro-flavoured tale of terror, Anarchy Parlor (2015) and Simon with Robert “Oz” Perkins (Anthony Perkins son) on several scripts. Some were commissioned, on spec. The most notable movie is Removal (2010). Although they do not work on every movie together, they’ve broadened. Without giving away too much away about this thriller/horror movie product, »
