From Samuel Zimmerman at ShockTillYouDrop.com:
A budding tradition and must-see at the annual Stanley Film Festival in Estes Park, CO is Tales From Beyond the Pale Live, an in-flesh, festival-tailored iteration of the Larry Fessenden & Glenn McQuaid-produced horror audio dramas. One of the festival’s more experiential events, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live: The Stanley Edition is written exclusively for the Stanley and features performers in person, as well as the magic of live foley, sound and music. It’s a treat that both reveals the form and yet draws you in even further.
At the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, taking place April 30-May 3 at the Stanley Hotel, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live is entitled The Stanley Edition: Parlor Tricks. Taking place Friday, May 1st at 7 p.m. sharp at The Historic Park Theatre, Parlor Tricks is comprised of two tales: Cold Reading, written by Glenn McQuaid & newcomer to Tales, April Snellings (writer and editor at Rue Morgue Magazine and co-editor of the book Horror Movie Heroes); and No Signal by Larry Fessenden.
The show will feature the voice talents of Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here) and Leon Vitali (Barry Lyndon, Terror of Frankenstein) as well as Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Body, Habit). The rest of the cast will be filled by very special guests.

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.”
Glass Eye Pix pals team up with Joe Begos for his sophomore effort “The Minds Eye”
After making a name for himself with the creature feature Almost Human, which premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, filmmaker Joe Begos is now filming his second feature that will blow your mind (literally).
The Mind’s Eye is a violent telekinetic revenge thriller set in snowy 1990 New England, says Deadline. It follows a drifter with telekinetic abilities who targets a doctor who is creating a synthetic telekinetic power serum.
The film went into production this week in Rhode Island and is financed by Channel 83 Films and Site B Productions. The Mind’s Eye stars Graham Skipper (from Begos’ feature directorial debut Almost Human), Lauren Ashley Carter (Pod), John Speredakos, Noah Segan (LooperContracted I+II) Larry Fessenden, and Jeremy Gardner. Begos, Josh Ethier, Graham Skipper, and Zak Zeman (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S, V/H/S/2, Late Phases) produce.
From Sam Zimmerman at Shock Till You Drop:
“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.”

“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…”

“Though we saw a piece of it during The Game Awards 2014, Sony and Supermassive Games have released over seven minutes of gameplay footage from their upcoming horror title Until Dawn featuring Hayden Panettiere (“Nashville,” “Heroes”) as Sam. You can check it out in the player below!
Set at an isolated mountain lodge where nothing is as it seems, eight friends try to stay alive with a killer on the loose. Players define the relationships between the characters through dialogue and experience the night from their unique point of view. Written in collaboration with famed horror writers and directors Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, find out who will survive Until Dawn.
Until Dawn will debut exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in 2015.”
Glass Eye Pix is teaming up with Deep Focus Records again to bring I SELL THE DEAD to vinyl!
Check out the release announcement from DeepFocusRecords.com:
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
