FSR: In Praise of Shudder

As Fessenden embarks on the second annual Shudder Labs Outing in Upstate NewYork with GEPals Peter Phok, Jenn Wexler, Clay MacLeod Chapman, Shudder host Sam Zimmerman and a team of horror lovers, Film School Rejects posts and aptly timed article on the streaming service. What are you waiting for?

Streaming and live-streams, and scares—oh my!

Like any self-respecting content consumer, I subscribe to an embarrassing amount of podcasts. As a result, I’ve heard my fair share of gotta-keep-the-lights-on adverts, but I’ve never been bothered to use a promo code, let alone google or buy a product. That is until I heard Elijah Wood sing the praises of Shudder, a niche, subscription-based streaming service geared to horror nerds. I’ve never opened a search bar so fast.

Shudder has been able to provide more than just recycled titles and low-quality indie fare. They’ve made available films that were otherwise hard to come by through the regular channels; from Larry Fessenden’s Habit to classics from F.W. Murnau. Perusing Shudder feels like being let into a fallout vault, well-stocked with everything from old favorites to genre classics, to challenging new fare.

From The Archives: MY SHEROES, MY SHEROES

In honor of Hollywood’s WONDER WOMAN woke bro moment, Glass Eye Pix dusts off an old classic, 

MY SHEROES, MY SHEROES
by David Leslie & Larry Fessenden. 1993/Glass Eye Pix

A marvelous mosaic of women’s ideas, images and music
tiled with a grout of humor and pathos, this is woman hear her roar…
Performance artist David “The Impact Addict” Leslie and filmmaker Larry Fessenden
are known for their visceral and pyrotechnical pokes
into the world of hyper-myth and media. Their decades-long collaboration,
started in 1986, have been presented at venues throughout the world.
PLAY LOUD
Doesn’t feel like much has changed…
rock on, sisters.
Larry & David

GEP pals Evan Katz and Macon Blair premiere SMALL CRIMES on Netflix

SMALL CRIMES was directed by Evan Katz and is available now on Netflix. It stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gary Cole, Pat Healy, Macon Blair, Robert Forster, Molly Parker  and features “an all-knowing strip club owner played by cult-movie legend Larry Fessenden.” 

“…Adapted from a 2008 novel by Needham’s Dave Zeltserman, “Small Crimes” is the cinematic equivalent of an amusing novel that distracts you during a cross-country flight. It’s the perfect movie to premiere on Netflix, not quite distinguished enough to warrant a trip to the multiplex but ideal couch company on a rainy afternoon. Such modest virtues should not be underestimated.”
