Blood, gore and certain female body parts particularly stimulating to a large percentage of male members of the audience seem to be the core ingredients of the modern horror film. Therefor it is almost unnecessary to mention that the latest project from Chicago, IL, based Faux Past Films has plenty of that, and may take it a step or two further, promising “adult themes such as nudity, strong language, strong sexual content, and scenes of horror and gore”.

Spearheading this year’s selection is the world premiere of ‘Show Pieces’, three tales of terror written by Alan Moore, the genius 2000 AD writer behind ‘Watchmen’, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, “From Hell’ and ‘V for Vendetta’. Moore has never previously written specifically for the screen, until now. Directed by his close friend and internationally acclaimed photographer Mitch Jenkins, this interconnected trilogy kicks off with. ‘Act of Faith’ in which a young woman looking for the next step in sexual excitement unfortunately finds it. ‘Jimmy’s End’ tails a serial philanderer down a dark alley into a very unusual club where the top-billed attraction is The Bad Brides and their Danse Macabre and ‘His Heavy Heart’ reveals the horrifying price paid for his adultery. We’re delighted to announce that Alan Moore will be attending, alongside Mitch Jenkins and some of the cast. ‘Show Pieces’ will be screened separately in the Discovery Strand. Com on inside for more information and the full lineup.

Real life seems to prove the point that many mortal dangers indeed often originate from the unsuspected. Most serial killers turn out to be just your regular guy or gal next door with a well hidden, or collectively ignored, yet severe mental condition. Many a secluded place has turned out to be the perfect setting for most unspeakable atrocities. Filmmaker Les Mahoney will be taking audiences to such a place where we felt safe since childhood… until watching Joseph Kesselring’s ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’. Continue Reading →
