Freaky Friday: Glass Eye Pix Around-The-Web Roundup



Fandor’s Filmwax Radio waxes poetic with Fessenden (Listen here)

“Regardless we spoke for well over an hour in an unlit room. As the conversation continued the light grew darker. The conversation went all over the place but one thing was clear: this was a serious filmmaker who likes to have a lot of fun. Oscillating between acting (All the Light in the Sky, Wendy and Lucy), directing (Habit, Beneath) and producing (The Comedy, Night Moves), Fessenden emphasized that his favorite films were those that had a slow approach, films that took their time.”


WENDIGO named one of Tribeca Film Institute’s “10 Horror Movies You Need To See” (Check the list out here)

“Though horror has always been a big go-to for filmmakers starting out with low budget fare, The Blair Witch Project took that craze to its zenith. With a whole lot of horrors suddenly flooding the market (and honestly, many of them should never been made) one we’re happy found its way out of the weeds was Larry Fessenden‘s spooky spiritual thriller. Playing off a mythical Algonquain legend, the godfather of contemporary low budget horror makes a thrilling work that’s definitely much scarier than anything done in Blair Witch.

Best Time To Watch: Before you head off for a camping trip or anything that involves a lot of wilderness.”

“This is another one that you might cry foul on, because there has of course been a Swamp Thing film made. … With the property’s use of both horror and ecology, you could get someone like Larry Fessenden (WendigoThe Last Winter) involved and do some wondrous things.”

SXSW Roundup at hammertonail: LATE PHASES is “brilliant”

From SXSW Roundup by Mike Ryan at hammertonail.com

Late Phases (Adrian Garcia Bogliano, 95m) — One of the best films I saw in a once again very strong Midnight section was this straightforward-but-brilliant werewolf movie. As with Xan Cassavettes’ Kiss Of The Damned from last year, I am most attracted to genre purists who work within the three-chord structure of their respective genre and through rigorous personal exploration of the core foundations of the code, completely reinvent the genre.

Late Phases starts deceptively simple, with a very tart TV-movie-of-the-week set-up and pacing but, by the middle of the second act, gets torn to bits like the graphic transformation scene in which we watch a trusted deacon in the church pull off his nose and ears as hair pokes through his chest cavity. Or the bizarre scene on a church bench when the head priest (Tom Noonan) and our war hero Ambrose (Nick Damichi) talk about the evil that men do while describing the act of killing innocent children.

The transformation from human to monster is ripe for so much fertile metaphorical relationships; the most obvious one here is the transformation from youth to old age heightened by the fact that the film is set in an old age retirement community. I also particularly liked the father/son relationship, which opened up the idea that as sons, we all become our fathers, as much as we fight the urge; at times, we all feel that matted, nasty smelling hair poking out, or at least clawing to get out. Likewise, we are willing to shoot ourselves in the foot in order to kill that evil beast. Hats off to low-budget horror masterminds Larry Fessenden and Brent Kunkle at Glass Eye Pix, who manage to make creatures and effects feel more real than any mega-budget CGI extravaganza on I am sure what is a nano-percentage of the typical Hollywood budget. This is one film that I hope gets into every megaplex. It’s elevated the werewolf film to a whole other level.

LATE PHASES to Premiere at SXSW

Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s LATE PHASES, from MPI’s Dark Sky Films and Zak Zeman’s Site B Productions, with Fessenden and Brent Kunkle producing for Glass Eye Pix, has been selected for the Midnighters section of SXSW 2014! Get all the details on the film’s World Premiere at SXSW.com.


Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…

LATE PHASES Director Adrian Bogliano’s HERE COMES THE DEVIL Opens in NYC and LA

From Gawker.com:

“Adrián García Bogliano’s Here Comes the Devil is what would happen if psychological terror and weird sex shit came to a Mentos commercial. Stilted as fuck, fueled on pregnant pauses and eyeball acting that makes virtually every character appear to have a thyroid condition, the movie revels in the kind of unnaturalness the ’70s schlock it so admires could only settle for….I never stopped wanted to see what the fuck ridiculous thing it was going to throw at me next. It intensifies at certain points into shockingly brutal violence, and is more effective for being so felicitous about that. Without going excessive and taking a torture-porn turn, this movie shows you that it means business and isn’t just some jump-scare-loaded, soft-R-for scary bullshit…”

Check out the full Gawker review here: Here Comes the Devil Is the Most Fun Horror Movie of 2013

HERE COMES THE DEVIL is now playing at Cinema Village in NYC and Sundance Sunset Cinema in LA.

Stay tuned for news on Bogliano’s upcoming feature with Glass Eye Pix, LATE PHASES.

By Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
