New Clip from POD Takes Us ‘Into The Basement’

A brand new clip’s just been released from GEP pal Mickey Keating’s Pod, starring Lauren Ashley Carter, Dean Cates, and Fessenden.

From Bloody Disgusting:

Playing in the upcoming South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival’s Midnighters section is Mickey Keating’s hotly anticipated Pod, which will World Premiere at the fest running from March 13 – 21, 2015 in Austin, Texas.

The addition to the first trailer being released, we now have a clip from the horror pic that features Lauren Ashley Carter, Dean Cates, Brian Morvant, Larry Fessenden, and John Weselcouch. In it, two doors are busted open, one teases something terrifying.

In Pod, a family intervention goes horrifically awry within the snowy confines of an isolated lake house.

“After receiving a troubling voicemail, estranged siblings Ed and Lyla travel to their isolated family lake house in Maine to hold an intervention on their increasingly paranoid, war veteran brother, Martin. But the situation rapidly spirals out of control when they discover the house completely ransacked and learn that Martin has constructed an elaborate and horrifying conspiracy theory surrounding a sinister entity that he believes he has trapped in the basement.”

DARLING one of Shock Till You Drop’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

From Sam Zimmerman at Shock Till You Drop:

DarlingFeat

“Mickey Keating is an up-and-comer. The young filmmaker, who got his start at NYC horror house Glass Eye Pix (headed up by Larry Fessenden), made his feature debut with the simple, stylish, Lynchian Ritual. In 2014, he completed production on two new features, POD and Darling, both of which star Jug Face’s Lauren Ashley Carter. The former, and the one we’re likely to catch first at festivals, is a paranoid, Twilight Zone-inspired tale of a family intervention gone wrong. The latter is a black-and-white chronicle of a woman in a Manhattan mansion losing it. Both have that special appearance-by-Fessenden touch.”

Check out his full list here.

Exclusive Eerie Trailer For BODY on Indiewire

cdn.indiewire.com

From Indiewire.com:

“The time is now for new voices in the horror/thriller genre…And at the Slamdance Film Festival, co-directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen are hoping they too will join those filmmakers with “Body.”

Starring Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina, and Larry Fessenden, the wintry thriller kicks off with a killing and turns the screws from there. Here’s the official synopsis: After three twenty-something girls break into a mansion and inadvertently murder the groundskeeper, they slowly self-destruct as they decide what to do with the dead body in the living room. And as you’ll see from this eerie teaser, “Body” promises a spine-tingling atmosphere and some carefully calibrated suspense.

“Body” will have its first screening at Slamdance on Sunday, January 25th at 10:30 PM at the Treasure Mountain Inn in the Ballroom…”

We’re super excited to announce a second collaboration with Glass Eye Pix! Deep Focus Records will be releasing a vinyl pressing for Jeff Grace’s fantastic score to I Sell The Dead, starring Dominic Monaghan, Ron Perlman, Larry Fessenden and Angus Scrimm.

We’re also delighted and honored that Angus Scrimm will be contributing exclusive liner notes for the vinyl release.

Under the pen name of Rory Guy, Angus wrote for Capitol Records for decades, penning liner notes for the likes of The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.

Upon its release, I Sell The Dead (written and directed by Glenn McQuaid) received a warm reception from horror fans and critics alike. In fact, Jeff Grace’s score was also nominated for Best Score in the 2011 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards.

“The film moves with a darting confidence and it literally soars via the evocative and aggressive score by Jeff Grace.” – Hammer to Nail

Larry Fessenden, “Patron Saint of Horror”

LF-Bitter Feast1

Check it! The Montana Mancave Massacre’s got a blog post up all about Fessenden and the films he’s directed, produced and acted in.

Some snippets from the post…

“When I was making my list of films to include…films either directed by or starring Larry Fessenden were taking up a lot of real estate. It was damned nigh impossible to choose between them, so I decided to lump them all together. So here’s you’re gift for the 6th day of Christmas: the majesty that is Larry Fessenden.”

“As the founder of Glass Eye Pix, his philosophy of filmmaking is that you don’t need a massive budget or big star to make a great film. Since 1985, Glass Eye Pix has been producing great indie flicks by auteur directors, especially young horror directors. In short, Larry Fessenden is doing God’s Work.”

“This man is essential to modern horror.”

“Habit is a story of newfound love in a particularly difficult time in one man’s life…it’s a hell of a great vampire film. And it’s one of the rare instances in which Fessenden plays the lead character. And he’s great. He’s got a slovenly charm about him that makes you understand why the vampire character is fascinated by him. Watching Habit, it’s difficult to understand why he didn’t become a more prominent actor. Dude’s got the goods.”

“Wendigo is a micro-budget masterpiece…This is a labor of love, and it shows.”

“The Last Winter is, as far as I know, the first environmental horror movie. It tackles the question (as does Wendigo, to a lesser extent) how does nature fight back when humans violate its balance?”

“And on one last note, if you’re still unconvinced of Larry Fessenden’s awesomeness, he also produces a web-based horror-themed radio drama series named Tales From Beyond the Pale. If any of you are into Arch Oboler’s Lights Out or the old Rod Serling radio plays, Fessenden is the man bring that stuff back. Each episode boasts a celebrity cast and a name author. Sir Lawrence, you just put everyone else to shame.”
