This week: Jack Fessenden Masterclass in Portugal – Along with screenings of DEPRAVED & FOXHOLE

GEP hops over to Lisbon, Portugal for a screening of Larry Fessenden’s DEPRAVED
and Jack Fessenden’s
 FOXHOLE, along with a Jack Fessenden Lecture
“How I Made Two Feature Films by Age 21”. Part of “The Outsiders”
an American Independent Film Cycle presented by FLAD.

Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon
March 8, Wednesday, 5pm, Grand Auditorium

Barely more than a teenager, Jack Fessenden already has two feature films written, directed and premiered on his resume (in which he also dressed as a composer, editor and producer). The biological stamp — which he assumes with pride — of being the son of Larry Fessenden (one of New York’s gurus of independent horror films) would be of no use without a strong personal contribution.

Chosen as one of the “11 indie filmmakers aged 30 or under that you need to know” (Indiewire, 2017), Jack Fessenden regularly attended his father’s studios during his childhood and adolescence and his curiosity allowed him to learn practical skills. various stages of film production. He made several short films before making his debut, aged 17, in the long format with Stray Bullets, about which Chris O’Falt, in the same Indiewire, said that the most impressive thing was not only the security and economy with which the young filmmaker it dealt with the choreography of violence, but how it found subtlety and depth in the film’s quieter moments. More ambitious, Foxhole, his next work, is part of the long tradition of antiwar humanist film, managing to achieve “an almost abstract beauty” (Josh Siegel, MoMA).

“This kid is going to go far,” said Meira Blaustein, co-founder of the Woodstock Film Festival. It’s already on its way, we would say.

Screen Anarchy highlights Fessenden Frankenstein music video in Sound & Vision series

From Screen Anarchy: In the article series Sound and Vision we take a look at music videos from notable directors. This week we look at Life in a Blender’s Frankenstein Cannot Be Stopped, directed by Larry Fessenden.

Larry Fessenden loves Frankenstein. It might even be an understatement to call it love. In an interview I did with him for the Dutch-language film magazine Schokkend Nieuws he stated: “It’s how I see the world. It’s my religion, my mythology.”

Fessenden, who as a director might be most well known for two Wendigo-related features he made (the coming-of-age horror Wendigo and the eco horror The Last Winter), and his contributions for the game Until Dawn, keeps often returning to the same themes in his work. The wendigo-myth is one, but Frankenstein is the other big main staple. In Habit a person wearing a Frankenstein-mask shows up at a party, and N is for Nexus, his segment for ABCs of Death is a cheeky retelling of Frankenstein surrounding a Halloween-themed traffic accident. It is in two other films, in which he explores the limits of science, that his love for Frankenstein most clearly shines through.

MOVIEWEB: “25 Great Low-Budget Horror Movies You’ve Probably Never Heard Of” includes 2 by Glass Eye Pix

Much like last year’s We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, Like Me explores the impact of social media on the younger generation. Addison Timlin stars as Kiya, who becomes a small internet sensation after posting a video of her robbing a convenience store online. Her newfound notoriety encourages her to go on a bigger crime spree, and she desires to record every second of it. Along the way, she kidnaps a paint-huffing drifter (played by indie-horror icon Larry Fessenden) and involves him in her criminal escapades in a number of distressing ways.

What sets Like Me apart from other films that wade in the same waters is its unique, chaotic visual style. Director Rob Mockler really knows how to capture the fast-paced world of an internet-obsessed teenager (who also happens to be a psychopath), infusing the film with both grit and blaring neon colors. You wouldn’t be wrong to draw similar comparisons to Spring Breakers, but Like Me is a twisted beast all its own. It’ll gross you out, make you laugh, and get under your skin.

I Can See You is a shot-on-video micro-budget horror film that is much more than the sum of its parts. The setup is pretty simple: three young men and their girlfriends go into the woods for a photoshoot, but the mysterious disappearance of one of the women sparks a gradual descent into madness.

If you can get past the (admittedly) amateurish production quality, you’ll be in for a real treat. This is a truly weird mix of slow-burn horror and absurd, creepy comedy not unlike something you’d find on Tim and Eric. While the movie chugs along at snail’s pace, it masterfully maintains a bizarrely unnerving atmosphere. And if you stick with it, your patience will be rewarded: the film’s climax features a hallucinogenic nightmare sequence that feels ripped directly from David Lynch’s consciousness. This is by no means for everyone, but fans of David Lynch and his style of work will find a lot to like here.

Snarky BENEATH review resurfaces as Fessenden flick hits top 10 on Netflix in Europe

A creature feature so bad it was dubbed ‘The Room’ of horror movies swims to the surface on streaming


Tommy Wiseau’s The Room will live on forever as one of the cultiest cult classics that’s ever going to cult classic, but comparisons being made between the infamously awful vanity project and 2013’s creature feature Beneath weren’t intended as a compliment.

Then again, a 30 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and an even worse audience approval rating of 12 percent indicates that maybe director Larry Fessenden’s B-tier schlocker doesn’t even deserve to be put on the same ironically adored pedestal as The Room as several reviews claimed, but that hasn’t prevented the forgotten aquatic nightmare from coming up for air on streaming.

As per FlixPatrol, Beneath has resurfaced as a Top 10 hit on Netflix in multiple countries around the world, and it isn’t too difficult to figure out why subscribers – especially those with a soft spot for bonkers horror – would find themselves enticed by a low budget effort that’s sold entirely on the back of the primary antagonist being a gigantic man-eating catfish with a preposterous taste for delicious human flesh.

Six recently-graduated teenagers decide to spend one final day together before heading off on their different paths in life, but there’s not a chance all of them will be making it back to shore alive when the monstrous fish destroys their oars. Trapped and terrified, they decide the best solution is to figure out which one of them deserves to be sacrificed to their aquatic adversary, a logical decision that inevitably creates panic, conflict, and the airing of some long-held grievances.
