HOME IS WHERE THE HORROR IS.

On the occasion of the opening of the new horror flick HERIDITARY, one of GEP’s favorite authors Jason Zimmerman (SHOCK VALUE) writes about a new era of horror in The New York Times.

 From the article:

Moving into territory once the preserve of prestige dramas, horror has never been more bankable and celebrated than it is right now. And while evil clowns and serial killers at sorority houses still haunt young viewers (and make tons of money), we’re in the midst of a golden age of grown-up horror. Hushed and character-driven, this mix of indie fare and blockbusters works ferociously on adult anxieties in an age of dislocation.

Part of the reason horror has long targeted young viewers is that it’s harder to scare adults. We have seen too much, including other scary movies. But that experience can be used against us. H.P. Lovecraft famously wrote that the strongest kind of fear was that of the unknown. But the older you get, the less unknown there is. Vampires, werewolves and zombies don’t frighten like they once did. But ghosts still do — when they remind us of what we have lost.

This weekend, check out HEREDITARY in theaters and then cozy up with Fessenden’s home horror family drama from 2001, WENDIGO

WENDIGO review at PopMatters

buff-wendigo-650

“How does myth shape our understanding of the world?
Such is the question hiding in the heart of Larry Fessenden’s Wendigo,
a film that screened in gorgeously grainy 35mm on Thursday
as part of the Boston Underground Film Festival. An artful examination of mythical storytelling, 
Wendigo succeeded both as a horror film and a character-driven indie drama
about a young boy dealing with trauma.

 … All in all, Wendigo is a great film, one that displays the power of expressionist horror
to tackle grand themes and do so with emotional sensitivity and masterfully-executed atmosphere.”

—Valleriy Kolyaych, PopMattaers

Fessenden rambles on Boston Hassle

By Robert Rice

The following is an account of an interview, not a transcript nor even a very coherent paraphrasing. It couldn’t have been, because what took place was too sprawling and fractal, because that’s the nature of a long conversation, because he is a non-discriminating student of the horrific and the convivial, because I got lucky. I got lucky because I was slated for fifteen minutes and he gave me an hour and fifteen. I got lucky because, via some serendipitous allowance of mutual and overlapping interest, we both felt like talking about neuroscience, frailty, nature, fathers, and fear with another person who knows about the killing of Tim McLean. Or, more likely, I felt like it, and he wasn’t actively opposed to indulging me.
