Grimmfest 2014: Opening Night Gala Lineup Includes Let Us Prey and Suburban Gothic

27 August 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Grimmfest 2014 takes place in Manchester, England, from the 2nd-5th October, and the opening night lineup has been announced. It includes two bloody fantastic features, an exclusive short film premiere, and some great special guests.

This year’s Grimmfest Opening Night will be headlined by the English Premiere of Brian O’Malley’s Scottish/Irish horror Let Us Prey starring Liam Cunningham ("Game of Thrones") and Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman).

Synopsis:

We join Rachel (McIntosh), a rookie cop, as she is about to begin her first nightshift in a neglected police station in a Scottish backwater town... the kind of place where the tide has gone out and stranded a motley bunch of the aimless, the forgotten, the bitter-and-twisted who all think that, really, they deserve to be somewhere else. They all think they’re there by accident and that, with a little luck, life is going to get better. »

Suburban Gothic review

18 August 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Excision returns for a lighter, oddball horror comedy. Here's Jules-Pierre's review of Suburban Gothic...

Suburban Gothic is director Richard Bates Jr's second film following Excision, his gruesome horror about a disturbed teen's mental state. Suburban Gothic, however, trades in most of the blood and grisly scenes of Excision for more humour while retaining Bates's trademark character moments and dialogues.

There's surely more room for genre comedies like Ghostbusters, but the gaps in between releases in that genre can almost be measured in decades, and it has to be said that many of them aren't particularly good: for every Spaceballs there's a The Creature Wasn't Nice (obscure reference − look it up), and for every Princess Bride there's a Your Highness. Luckily, we sometimes get a few good ones in a row, such as Zombieland, Shaun Of The Dead, and Tucker And Dale Vs Evil.

Philadelphia's The Awesome Festival becomes Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival

1 August 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Philadelphia's Awesome Fest sounds… well… awesome. To be clear, though, it appears this is an evolution of the already-existent event, which is now being called The Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival. As you would expect with a name like that, Bruce Campbell will indeed be there as part of the four-day event in Rosemont, Il, where they'll also be screening a slate of horror titles curated by Scott Weinberg, horror maven and the resident critic at the just-killed FEARnet. They'll also have panels, and they've got some great ones planned. Overall, it looks like a really cool chance to see a fistful of the best of what indie horror has going on right now with bonuses that simply make the weekend better. From August 21 to August 24, you'll be able to check out some great films. How? Well, here's how they put it: Tickets for All screenings are free to attend »

Fantasia Review: Suburban Gothic Reflects No Sophomore Slump for Richard Bates, Jr.

21 July 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Moving back in with your parents can be hard to do. It comes with a modicum of humility and confusion. You're an adult: How did it get to this bad? Why can't you find a job? You have a degree, but are driven back home until you get back on your feet - how long will this last? Richard Bates Jr. pushes the answers to these questions into extreme, often very funny, territory in Suburban Gothic, his sophomore feature following the grisly Excision. His latest film - which made its world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival - deliberately favors humor over horror this time around. But it's not the pitch black laughs that came in Excision.

Watch: Matthew Gray Gubler & Kat Dennings Investigate The Supernatural In Nsfw Trailer For 'Suburban Gothic'

14 July 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Both Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat Dennings find most of their time occupied with their TV gigs, the former on "Criminal Minds," the latter on "2 Broke Girls." So one would wager that they'd be picky about the movies they make during their downtime. But as the trailer for "Surburban Gothic" suggests, perhaps that's not necessarily so. Co-written and directed by Richard Bates Jr. ("Excision," which also starred Gubler), the horror comedy adds Ray Wise and Barbara Niven in supporting roles, and follows college graduate Raymond, who is having trouble getting his life on track and moves back in with his parents. But things go from bad to worse when supernatural weirdness begins to follow him around, but luckily he finds an ally in a quirky local bartender. Basically, it's pretty broad (and low budget) stuff with everything pitched toward camp but perhaps not quite working. At least not in trailer form. »

Red Band Trailer For Suburban Gothic Unites Hipsters And The Paranormal

11 July 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While everyone was raving about the Soska sisters’ body horror film American Mary back in 2012, I was strongly supporting Richard Bates Jr.’s Excision with more passion. My review for American Mary states all the problems I found with Katharine Isabelle’s body-modification obsession, and compared to AnnaLynne McCord’s surgical-nurse-in-training character there’s just no competition. Bates showed so much promise with his short-film-adapted first feature that I couldn’t wait to see what twisted project would come from his mind next – and it looks like I won’t have to wait much longer.

Starting to build its festival run is Suburban Gothic, a twisted little paranormal tale about Raymond – your typical hipster forced to move back home with his lame parents. With no ambition or drive, a bartender/old acquaintance named Becca suggests Raymond start a business using his only odd talent, which happens to be connecting with the dead. »

Review: A Good Creature is Wasted in Animal

20 June 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

In some respects, Animal is a cut above the usual Chiller fare. It boasts a much better pedigree. It’s executive produced by Drew Barrymore and her Flower Films production company. The creature design and effects are by Gary Tunnicliffe (Scream 4, My Bloody Valentine, Feast). The music is by tomandandy (The Hills Have Eyes, The Strangers). The cast is full of familiar faces including Jeremy Sumpter (Frailty, Excision), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy), and Amaury Nolasco (2 Fast 2 Furious, Transformers). Unfortunately, in just about every other way it’s business as usual.

Great Films from First-Time Directors

14 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The work of a first time director can be promising or dreadfully misguided. Sometimes, a director’s first film represents a good start to a promising career and other times, we are left scratching our heads and wondering how he or she will ever work again? Every once in a while, though, a first time director blows us out of the water with something totally original, bold, and completely brilliant. 

It’s not very often that we are blown away as horror fans. We are a group that has seen everything the first time around and then seen it again when it was remade, so for us to be blown away, especially by a director making his or her feature film debut is exceptional and even a bit unusual. That’s not to say that it doesn’t ever happen, though. In fact, we have found ourselves completely blown away »

Check Out The Original Short Film Version Of 'Excision'

12 February 2014 4:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

One of my personal favorite horror films of 2012 was Richard Bates Jr.'s debut feature 'Excision.' Back then, I was able to interview the writer/director over on Icons Of Fright to get a bit more insight into this strangely unique and wonderful odd film. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the story initially started out as a short film before becoming a feature. It's not uncommon for stellar shorts to be turned into full length films. In fact, just a few months back, fellow Fearnet scribe John Squires wrote a piece showcasing 10 horror films that originated as short films. And now, the filmmaker just tweeted a link to a You Tube page housing the long coveted short, which you can watch for yourself below.

The story of 'Excision,' both for the short & feature centers around the highly intelligent yet mildly disturbed Pauline, a teen who »
