Review: The Mind’S Eye

2013’s Almost Human showcased not only the talents of director Joe Begos, actor/editor Josh Ethier and actor Graham Skipper, but a genuine love for all things John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. The gory body invasion film caught people off guard during its festival run and when released, it quickly became a film that genre lovers really wanted to stand behind. It had gore, it had that early ’80s Carpenter vibe, and it also had a really fun and interesting story. When a filmmaker excites genre fans like that, the “what film will they do next, and will it be as good?” question is a constant, sometimes for the best and unfortunately, sometimes for the worse. After Begos’ follow up, the telekenisis splatterfest The Mind’S Eye, that question is answered, and fright fanatics,…it’s one hell of a ride.

Taking place in the first couple of years of the ’90s,

Interview: The Mind’S Eye Writer/Director Joe Begos on the Importance of Making Movies He Wants to See & More

With just two features under his directorial belt, writer/director Joe Begos has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting genre filmmakers working on the independent level. His directorial debut, Almost Human, was a stunning sci-fi shocker and his newest project, The Mind’s Eye, is a balls-out telekinetic war that features some insane practical effects and performances from the likes of Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Tales of Halloween), Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face, Darling), Noah Segan (Looper, Starry Eyes), Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Late Phases), and Jeremy Gardner (The Battery, Spring).

Daily Dead recently spoke with Begos about his approach to The Mind’s Eye, and the filmmaker discussed what inspired his second feature, the importance of working with the right people and making movies that he wants to see as a genre fan, why he’ll always champion practical effects, and more.

'Darling' just announced itself as one of 2016's must-see horror films
Making a black-and-white film in the 21st century is certainly a risk, commercially, but as Darling writer/director Mickey Keating told Amfm magazine at last year's Fantastic Fest, it made complete artistic sense: "I think all the movies that I had been watching when I was writing influenced it. I just saw the world in black and white. So, it was totally 'Repulsion,' it was totally 'The Haunting'...'Shock Corridor' by Sam Fuller, it seemed right and it seemed necessary. I think that when you have that kind of gut instinct, to shy away from it, well there’s no point." Judging from the buzz on the street, Keating's gamble paid off. The film received terrific reviews at last year's Fantastic Fest and seems primed to become a word-of-mouth hit on VOD, where it's debuting on April 1 (the film will also find its way into limited theaters). The newly-released trailer is pretty fantastic,

Hallucinatory Festival Hit Darling Gets Release Date, Trailer and New Poster

I’ve made it no secret how much I absolutely loved Mickey Keating (Ritual, Pod, the upcoming Carnage Park)’s hallucinatory head trip of a film, Darling. A unique film that puts you through a beautiful descent into madness, the film knocked my ass on the ground when I was able to catch it during last year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX (review).

Short Film Roundup Reviews: Head & Introducing Parker Dowd

I love short films. Don’t get me wrong, there’s an infinite amount of things to love about features as well, but I’m in love with the idea of having to tell a story and invoke emotions and tone within a small amount of time, it impresses me very much and for each of our Short Film Roundup reviews, I wanted to shine the spotlight (so to speak) on short films I’ve come across that really stand out. The majority of them will obviously be genre shorts but don’t be surprised if you read about short films that play in the drama or comedy playgrounds as well, because really, why limit ourselves?

Mickey Keating’s Darling Set to Bring ‘Terror Beyond Comprehension’ To Fantastic Fest

While speaking to director Mickey Keating earlier this year, the prolific filmmaker mentioned his upcoming film Darling and how his goal was to make a film that was like a really bad drug trip, an homage to films like Repulsion, Eraserhead and Trouble Every Day (interview here). Fast forward to this week, when in celebration of the film’s premiere at the Austin, TX staple, Fantastic Fest (Friday, September 25th) we were sent not only one hell of a poster for the film, but a frantic and panic inducing teaser, one that looks Absolutely incredible. We’ve loved everything that Keating has done so far (Ritual, Pod), and Darling looks like it’s yet another side of the always changing filmmaker who refuses to be pigeon-holed into a specific type of film.

It’s the sign of a true artist when every single film said artist creates, feels completely different than their previous film.

Mickey Keating’s ‘Darling’ set to World Premiere at Fantastic Fest gets a poster and teaser trailer

Glass Eye Pix and Alexander Groupe have just released the first trailer and poster for Darling, the new film by Mickey Keating, which will have its world premiere at the 11th edition of Fantastic Fest.

The psychological horror film follows a lonely young woman who moves into an old, mysterious Manhattan mansion. Hired as a caretaker, it’s not long before she discovers the estate’s haunted reputation and troubling past. These stories slowly transform into a backdrop for her twisted and violent descent into madness…

The trailer gives us a good idea of what to expect — Mickey Keating’s Darling is edited like a nightmare and scored like a hallucination by composer Giona Ostinelli, and word is, the film accomplishes terror of a completely different kind.

Darling stars Lauren Ashley Carter (Pod, Jug Face) with supporting performances by Brian Morvant, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, John Speredakos, and Helen Rogers.
