Bloody Disgusting: SKIN AND BONES one of the Best Standalone Horror Episodes

SERIES- Fear Itself  “Skin and Bones” (Season 1, Episode 8)

More shocking than “Eater” is “Skin and Bones,” an episode about the Wendigo myth directed by Larry Fessenden. Starring the previously mentioned Doug Jones as an emaciated wilderness survivor whose actions to remain alive have changed him in unusual ways, the episode is a taut chamber piece with moments of cannibalism even more disturbing than “Eater” because of their emotional immediacy and frankness. A tour de force performance from Jones makes this episode a no-brainer.

Entertainment Weekly Debuts First Images from Fessenden’s Wendigo Book SUDDEN STORM

From Entertainment Weekly:

The Wendigo has some way to go before it joins the likes of Dracula and Frankenstein in the Monster Hall of Fame. But horror director Larry Fessenden clearly feels there is plenty of terror to be mined from this terrifying creature, which derives from Native American mythology and has been depicted in a variety of ways over the years. The filmmaker has directed two movies directly inspired by the beast (2001’s Wendigo and 2006’s The Last Winter) as well as an episode of the NBC horror anthology show Fear Itself starring Doug Jones as a man who develops a taste for human flesh — a recurring theme in tales about the creature.

Fessenden’s latest project to concern the legend is a collection of essays and other materials called Sudden Storm: A Wendigo Reader, which the filmmaker has curated and will be published by Fiddleblack on Feb. 16 (the book is now available to preorder from the publisher’s website). Deliberately broad in scope, the chapters range from one penned by President Theodore Roosevelt, in which he recounts a “goblin story” he was once told by an old hunter, to a consideration of the creature’s appearances on the small screen by horror expert Samuel Zimmerman. Sudden Storm also boast illustrations from Gary PullinIsabel Samaris, and renowned poster artist Graham Humphries. “We discuss it in terms of folkloria, in terms of crypto-zoology, but then we talk about it in movies and TV,” reveals Fessenden. “There’s a lot to chew on, if I can use the expression.”

Above, you can exclusively see artist Hugo Silva’s depiction of the Wendigo — which decorates the cover of Sudden Storm — while, below, you can see Isabel Samaras’ illustration of the creature.
