Chatting Horror with Tribeca Film Institute Live

From TribecaFilmInstitute.org:

“With Halloween quickly approaching we decided this episode to focus on horror and all the juicy things that come along with it. We couldn’t think of two better folks to sit with then Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead), who, you may recall, talked to us last Halloween, and Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), one of the icons in indie horror.

Like some major names in today’s horror scene—Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Sacrament), Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are)—McQuaid is another who got his break thanks to Fessenden and his company, Glass Eye Pix. The two have continued to collaborate with the spooky audio plays Tales From Beyond The Pale.

Chatting about a range of topics including:

-Their love of anthology films
-Larry on the ethos of Glass Eye Pix
-The struggles of the indie horror maker (and why Kickstarter isn’t for them)
-Glenn’s bisexual severed hand project
-Larry’s attempt to remake The Orphanage w/ Guillermo del Toro
-Glenn and Larry’s experiences working with Sean Young
-The best horror movies to watch this Halloween

Larry and Glenn were also nice enough to give us two excerpts from Tales From Beyond The Pale stories for your enjoyment, along with a tease of what they have in store for Season 3 of the show.

Sit back and enjoy the conversation. And if you’re in L.A., check out Tales From Beyond The Pale LIVE at Spectrefest on Oct 29”

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.”
