Those looking for a good scare have, since the cultural inception of the horror film, had a tough time doing so. There’s so much content ground out with little highlight of the plot and an over-emphasis of the blood spilled that horror films have always been a little brother to more serious genres of cinema. Even in an age of streaming content through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and niche services that cater to those looking to quench an adrenaline thirst only have a small supply of things that mass audiences would consider well made.
Among those scarce, scary few taking it upon themselves to make something that tells a story within the horror community, Glass Eye Pix has been in business for three decades. And the twisted brain behind the glass eye is familiar face Larry Fessenden, whose had a bloody hand in some of indie-horrors most dreadful darlings.
AXS recently had the chance to chat with Fessenden over the phone to discuss the myriad of projects he’s involved with, and just what it means to make a horror project that audiences consider “quality.”
