NEW reviews on FESSENDEN BOX SET
A few new posts from around the web celebrating The Fessenden Collection,
now available online and at your favorite brick and mortar shop.
“It’s impossible to speak on independent horror/genre films
without mentioning the name Larry Fessenden.
FESSENDEN’S SET EASILY WINS BEST BOXSET OF 2015.”
Icons Of Fright
PICK OF THE WEEK!
The set’s worth it for The Last Winter alone (along with its numerous new extra features)
as the film is an utterly fantastic piece of eco-terror,
but it should be a blind buy for Fessenden fans anyway.
“Whale. Castle. Carpenter. Craven. Fulci. The great names of horror.
But maybe there’s another, less known talent that should be added to this list.
Larry Fessenden may never have had their commercial success,
but the New York filmmaker’s impact on modern American horror,
both artistic and personal, is indelible.”
The Austin Chronicle
“Larry Fessenden’s films may be an acquired taste, but there’s no doubt
a small but loyal faithful has acquired that taste, and it
will be more than sated by Shout! / Glass Eye / IFC’s new Blu-ray box set,
which offers imperfect but strong presentations
of four of his films in HD and throws in a laundry list of bonus features to boot.
“THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION is a gateway into
one of the most under-appreciated and compelling minds in horror storytelling.
It’s hard not to become engrossed into Fessenden’s eerie and original worlds,
and his perspective on nature, human nature and interpersonal drama
in times of duress is unlike any other.
THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION comes highly recommended,
and once you check it out, there will be little doubt
that he’s deserving of the “Master of Horror” mantle.”
