Mile High Horror Film Festival

www.mhhff.com

Oct. 9-12, 2014

Littleton, Colorado

The 5th Annual Mile High Horror Film Festival was a twisted cornucopia of live performance artists, vendors, horror icons, FX artists, shorts, full length features, classics, and live industry panel discussions that drew the most rabid of fans. The repetitious problem of this particular festival is that it is structured in such a way it is impossible to see and do everything, leaving the most enthusiastic of attendees with nagging doubts and fear of “missing something”.

Opening night featured the original 1977 The Hills Have Eyes with all it’s glorious, non-pc dialogue. Original star Michael Berryman (Pluto) provided behind the scenes stories in an engaging Q&A session preceding the screening.

Hosted by The Alamo Draft House, Champion of the Independent Film Genre, Mhhff is growing in attendance every year. With over 80 films from 17 countries, »

The Greatest Horror Anthology Film Segments of All Time

25 October 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Popular in the 1960s and early 1970s with more rare appearances in the 1980s, 1990s and the 2000s, the anthology-style horror film has made a solid resurgence in recent years with such portmanteau releases as The ABCs of Death films and the V/H/S series.

With Mexico Barbaro, Fear Paris and other projects in various stages of completion, the anthology horror film looks to continue to be an important part of the horror cinema landscape.

Some anthology films employ a framing or wraparound sequence in an attempt to connect the segments that make up the film while others dispense with this classic Amicus-style approach entirely and simply present a collection of short films connected by genre.

Either way, a horror anthology film is ultimately about the quality of its individual segments and this article will take you on a tour of the greatest horror anthology segments of all time. »

Tgb Interview: Jerome Sable & Nicholas Musurca of 'ABCs of Death 2'

20 October 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of the highlights of Fantastic Fest 2014 was Drafthouse Films' own anthology horror sequel ABCs of Death 2. The Golden Briefcase hosts Tim and Jeremy had a chance to sit down with two of the filmmakers in the anthology (of the letter 'V') to discuss their segment further during Fantastic Fest. It's a bit late, but here's the interview. Director Jerome Sable + writer/producer Nicholas Musurca are the minds behind 'V is for Vacation' (see our first look). The guys talk about the thought process behind the approach to their short and talk about some of the takeaways from viewing the first film that helped guide their segment. These two guys, Jerome Sable and Nicholas Musurca, are also the filmmakers responsible for the wonderful horror short The Legend of Beaver Dam (it's so good - watch it online here) and they speak to balancing tone within context of the »

The Bottom Shelf: Frightfest, Faults and Killer Klowns

15 September 2014 12:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Indie horror Faults and Venezuelan chiller The House At The End Of Time are two of the films in this month's Bottom Shelf...

Summer holidays, barbecues on the beach and weekends decimated by relentless weddings: this is August for some. For other, more discerning types, it is about Frightfest, otherwise known as the chance to spend those rare sunny days ensconced in a darkened room for a horror movie marathon. This year’s Leicester Square event featured the usual mix of gonzo gore, copycat-killings and premiere screenings of future favourites; we managed to catch a few highlights.

The latest film from writer and director Riley Stearns (Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s husband, fact fans), Faults, received a European premiere last month. Massively enjoyable from start to finish, Stearns’ black comedy mostly eschews the genre necessity of scattergun bloody slayings in favour of an intelligent script focusing on the gaping voids left in desperate characters’ lives. »

Stage Fright Blu-Ray Review

9 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Winning my award for “Most Badass 2014 SXSW Midnighters Feature” was a horror musical that took me by complete surprise, blending operatic theatrics and bitchin’ 80s hair metal for a gloriously gory chorus of terror. Stage Fright, created by Jerome Sable and Co-Composer Eli Batalion, is an exquisite throwback to a greater era of horror, but the boys who brought you The Legend Of Beaver Dam also inject a humorous bite worthy of both laughs and screams. I mean, who doesn’t love a sing-along boasting a body count? Wait – don’t answer that. Just let me keep thinking I’m normal.

Drawing comparisons such as “Glee meets Sleepaway Camp” and “The Phantom Of The Opera meets Scream,” I like to think Stage Fright finds a unique, witty blend that goes beyond Glee‘s overly-dramatic sarcasm. Coming out guns blazing, Sable and Batalion hit fans right away with a self-deprecating song »

Pictures from The ABCs of Death 2 – including Nsfw image pulled from Facebook

8 July 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Released later this year, The Abcs of Death 2 has some new images from the 26 short movies, including one that was pulled from their official Facebook page last night for being too graphic.

The segment in question is directed by American Mary‘s Jen and Sylvia Soska. The image was removed from Facebook (for good reason) and certainly gives an indication that we might be getting some very uneasy viewing for male audiences.

Nsfw Image from The ABCs of Death 2 So Graphic It Was Pulled from Facebook!

7 July 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Making a name for themselves with Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary, twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska make their anthology debut with The ABCs of Death 2, contributing a short film to the madness.

Though we don't yet have any idea what their entry will be about, we can be pretty damn sure it's going to be a hard one for male audiences to endure, as this just released behind-the-scenes shot leads us to believe. You have been warned, men!!

Check out the Nsfw image below, which was pulled from The ABCs of Death 2 Facebook page for being too gruesome for mass consumption!

The ABCs Of Death 2 Releases First Slew Of Horrifying Images: See Them All Here!

12 May 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot on the heels of their ambitious horror anthology The ABCs Of Death, Drafthouse producers Ant Timpson and Tim League decided that the world needed another collection of horror shorts spanning every letter of the alphabet – and adventurous horror fans much like myself rejoiced. The ABCs Of Death 2 was greenlit, the directors were selected, and the inevitable waiting game began.

I tried on numerous occasions to extract as much information as possible from contributing artists – Jerome Sable, Aharon Keshales, Navot Papushado were tight-lipped in our interviews – but it looks like Magnet and Drafthouse are ready to start opening the floodgate of horrors hiding amidst these 26 short stories that are ready to shock, scare, and revolt viewers in ways the original didn’t dare.

While certain sites were originally given their own exclusive images, we’re now able to collect the smattering of gross faces, forest scenes, and creepy monsters »

Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion Talk Stage Fright, Challenges of Horror Musicals, Creating an Iconic Slasher Villain, Their Creative Process and More

9 May 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now available on VOD and arriving in theaters this weekend is Stage Fright, an eccentric musical-slasher-comedy fromJerome Sable, the mad genius responsible for the excellent 2010 short The Legend of Beaver Dam. With Stage Fright,Sable and co-writer Eli Batalion set out to expand on the elements that made Beaver Dam so unique with more musical numbers, gorier set pieces, and a cast of recognizable faces (Meat LoafMinnie DriverAllie MacDonald, Douglas Smith). The film follows the attendees of Center Stage musical theater camp as they produce their big show, "The Haunting of the Opera", but someone has a sinister agenda against the play and wastes no time slicing and dicing through the cast of the ill-fated production. I recently had the opportunity to jump on the phone for an exclusive phone interview with Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion. They talked about the genesis of the film, their writing process, »

Review: Stage Fright Sings, Dances, And Slashes Its Way Into Hearts

8 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

In the fall of 2010, everyone at Fantastic Fest was talking about The Legend of Beaver Dam, a short film that looked like a spooky horror flick until it burst into a musical. The short captured the disparate moods required for both types of movies to succeed, and did so in spectacular fashion. It seems like everyone wanted more of that type of delightfully bent genre-mashing. Now we have more from writer/director Jerome Sable, in the form of Stage Fright, a full-bore, feature-length horror/comedy/musical, set at a performing arts camp for kids, where everyone is free to be a theater geek without fear of standing out from the crowd. It's an ambitious, enthusiastic effort, and when it hits the right chord, it's great fun. When...
