“The Last Winter,” The Only Scary Movie About The Scariest Thing On Earth by David Roth

From Oscilloscope:

All of this would seem to set Fessenden up as the ideal director for a horror movie about a topic that, for all its reeling apocalyptic sweep, is generally lived in the present through a series of picayune partisan skirmishes. The question is whether such a movie could in fact be made, and why there have been so few attempts. The most obvious reason why there have not been any good, scary movies about climate change also happens to be the most compelling: it’s just too fucking scary. The bigger studio features that have taken on the topic have been goofy both because they are bad, and because a less-goofy approach would make them something significantly darker than a big studio feature should be.

Ashley Thorpe’s BORLEY RECTORY unspools at European Fests

Glass Eye Pix is pleased to announce the completion of the
Carrion Films / Glass Eye Pix co-production BORLEY RECTORY by Ashley Thorpe, illustrator, animator and author of the Tales from Beyond the Pale
The Demon Huntsman and Dead Man’s Shoes.

BORLEY RECTORY, a Carrion Films / Glass Eye Pix production is premiering at Manchester’s ‘Grimm Up North’ festival on Sunday, October 8th before a wealth of festival appearances in Europe and the U.S.
 
A blend of rotoscope and digital animation techniques Borley Rectory is essentially an animated documentary, inspired by the haunting that caught the worlds imagination during the late 1920’s. Pitched as ‘an ultrasound of a haunting’ Borley Rectory will be archly old fashioned, black and white, textural and stylized, with a house very much a projection of the personalities within it – and the ghosts manifestations of what may be missing from their lives.

SPECIAL EVENTS THIS FALL: Fessenden & Reichardt Screenings

REICHARDT AT MoMA
September 1225, 2017

Fessenden joins Reichardt for Q&A after RIVER OF GRASS screening
September 12th

This mid-career retrospective includes the six feature films Reichardt has made since 1994—a seemingly modest filmography for more than 20 years of work. But these intricately produced and fiercely independent are well worth the wait. As Catherine Wheatley wrote of the characters in Certain Women, “They know to keep their counsel, these women: know the importance of restraint, silence, of knowing when to speak and when to act and when to stay still.” These same qualities characterize the graceful, intensely perceptive films of Kelly Reichardt.

HABIT UNSPOOLS AT ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE
October 4, 2017
Q&A with Fessenden!

 Larry Fessenden’s lo-fi vampire film HABIT from 1996 is the crown jewel in a decade that saw fantastic, creative, low budget spins on the vampire narrative – including Abel Ferrara’s THE ADDICTION, Guillermo Del Toro’s CRONOS and Holly Dale’s BLOOD & DONUTS. Serving as writer, director as well as leading actor, Fessenden’s film takes place in an autumnal NYC (a setting oft used in vampire films of the 90s), in a period of grief and substance abuse for Sam (Fessenden) who begins a passionate relationship with a vampire. A romantic drama brought to the screen through genre conventions (as well as defiance of them), it uses its early Giuliani era NY – before the character of the city was lost – as a bustling backdrop for the intimacy of its horror.
