Larry Fessenden is a jack of all trades within the horror genre. An actor, director, writer, producer, the filmmaker is not only one of the best auteurs in the last 20 years, but is also responsible for producing some of the most up and coming genre directors’ films. Ti West’s THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL/THE INNKEEPERS, Jim Mickle’s STAKE LAND, Adrián García Bogliano’s LATE PHASES, and the list goes on and on. Fessenden himself has been one of the most influential filmmakers in independent genre films around, having helmed such revered films as NO TELLING, HABIT, WENDIGO, THE LAST WINTER and 2013’s BENEATH. Playing such a huge part in filmmaking in all aspects of the word, Fessenden and his company, Glass Eye Pix is celebrating 30 years of auteur-driven films, with an upcoming Scream Factory boxset featuring four of Fessenden’s films, a series of screenings of Larry’s films, and now, a mini-documentary series revolving around the various films Glass Eye Pix was responsible for.
