New images from set of 'Heir' released

7 hours ago

Fatal Pictures recently celebrated a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign for their final short film Heir. The film promises to be gory, horrific and monstrous and will showcase practical FX.

We've been sent a few stills from the set and thought we'd share them below. Enjoy!

About Heir

Produced by Fatal Pictures in association with Red Sneakers Media, "Heir" is the final entry in their "Box Cutter Trilogy", a trio of linked shorts each representing “different theories on the origin and operation of sociopaths,”.

The first two shorts, Worm and Familiar have received excellent reviews from around the genre.

Damien: Omen II (1978)

Written by: Harvey Bernhard, Stanley Mann, Mike Hodges

Directed by: Don Taylor

Cast: William Holden (Richard Thorn), Lee Grant (Ann Thorn), Jonathan Scott-Taylor (Damien Thorn), Sylvia Sidney (Aunt Marion), Robert Foxworth (Paul Buher), Lance Henriksen (Seargent Neff), Meshach Taylor (Dr. Kane)

I know it may be a bit peculiar to review a sequel without doing a retrospective of a whole series of films, but I actually have never seen this one. I watched it and the third movie “The Final Conflict” with Sam Neill back to back. While I haven’t seen the fourth entry, I can say this is probably the last one that has the feel of the original. I can compare this to “Jaws 2”. While not as powerful as the original, it still seems like it exists in the same world. Also like all the “Jaws” sequels after part two, »

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)

Director: Tony Randel

Writers: Clive Barker (story), Peter Atkins (screenplay)

Starring: Clare Higgins as Julia Cotton

Ashley Laurence as Kirsty Cotton

Kenneth Cranham as Dr. Philip Channard/Channard Cenobite

William Hope as Kyle MacRae

Imogen Boorman as Tiffany

Doug Bradley as Pinhead/Captain Elliot Spencer

Nicholas Vince as Chatterer/Chatterer II

Simon Bamford as Butterball Cenobite

Barbie Wilde as Female Cenobite

Sean Chapman as Frank Cotton

Hellbound: Hellraiser II could have been an unquestionably inferior sequel to the amazing first film if it had been placed into the hands of a director who had a conflicting visionary approach to material that had been strongly established by Clive Barker, but wouldn’t you know it, director Tony Randel delivers one of those few follow ups that manages to stand on its own merits and follow suit to its predecessor.

MoreHorror on the scene: Galactic Film Fest 2014

Galactic Film Festival 2014

I have always wondered why, with all the horror festivals in La, there isn't a dedicated science fiction film festival in the city. Well, I now have to wonder no longer, because on August 9th I attended a cool science fiction film fest, The Galactic Film Festival, a presentation of The Academy of Film Festivals, the same institution that brought us last year's horror oriented Rip Film Festival.

Horror and science fiction have always gone hand in hand, and there were some great horror themed shorts and features that played Saturday.

Deadly Punkettes

I have been singing the praise of director Jared Masters' exploitation and trash cinema inspired films for some time, and Deadly Punkettes, his newest feature, is also his best. Masters warned me before the screening that I was going to see the "clean" version, and that there is a dirty »

My Fellow Cinephiles

I would like to address a statement that has been brought to my attention by film fans everywhere- “what is your favourite horror film?”. Such a question is unfair because by implication it demands the individual to pick one film out of the many they have seen in their life time thus far. How is this justice I ask? To have one ‘favourite’ movie cuts you short of an existence of potential cinematic delights because the truth of it is, loving film is not crystalline, but fluid. As one gets on in years, tastes begin to differ and a film you once »
