'Escape from Tomorrow' director Randy Moore talks about his Disney-parodying horror film

A few years ago, Randy Moore embarked on a family holiday to Disney World in Orlando. Moore had visited the theme park as a child and had warm memories of the place. Moore’s nurse wife, however, had never been to a Disney theme park before and found the experience an unsettling one. “She couldn’t take it,” recalls Moore. “We were at some princess fair and it was a really muggy day and all the kids were screaming and demanding their parents buy them ridiculously expensive plastic wands. It was bonkers. At one point, my wife looked at me and she said, ‘This is worse than working on the psych floor at the hospital.'”

Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, 'Carrie' cast talk horror movies

Everyone has a movie they saw too young. It’s basically a rite of passage — being self-aware enough to know that what you’re watching is beyond your years, but suffering through it anyway. Why do you think we include it in our Pop Culture Personality Tests?

At the Los Angeles premiere of Carrie, director Kimberly Peirce’s re-imagining of Stephen King’s 1974 horror classic (and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film), stars Chloë Moretz, Julianne Moore, and Judy Greer recounted their own tales of the movies that traumatized them in their youth.

'Curse of Chucky': Director Don Mancini talks about his horror sequel (and why he wants to make 'Chucky -- The Musical!')

Legendary character actor Brad Dourif once again voices the titular killer-doll in Curse of Chucky, the sixth film in the Child’s Play series , which is released on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow and is also available via VOD. The twist? One of the people Dourif’s doll most wants to kill — a wheelchair-bound woman named Nica — is played by the actor’s daughter, Fiona. “I think we’re the first horror franchise in history where the iconic villain is onscreen bedeviling his actual offscreen progeny, ” says Curse of Chucky writer-director and longtime franchise scribe Don Mancini. So did Mancini get a discount deal as a result of casting two actors from the same clan? “I personally get a deal in the sense that I probably get to have dinner at their house maybe a couple more times a year, having endeared myself to them,” laughs the filmmaker. “But, no. They both drive a hard bargain.”

Gillian Jacobs talks about her 'butt-demon' horror-comedy 'Bad Milo!'

Bad-Milo.jpg

In the new comedy-horror film Bad Milo! Gillian Jacobs plays the wife of a stressed-out white collar drone (Ken Marino) who discovers he has a demon living in his butt. Yes, you read that right — she spells her first name with a “g.” (Ha! But, seriously, that is who she plays in the film.)

So, what was the point in the Bad Milo! shoot when the Community star most thought, “I bet Dame Judi Dench has never had to do this”? “Throwing dildos at an ass-demon puppet,” laughs Jacobs. “And we shot in a basement of a church, which just added a whole other level of wrong.”

Directed and cowritten by first-time filmmaker Jacob Vaughan, Bad MIlo! is released today in select cinemas and is also available to view via iTunes and VOD. In addition to Jacobs and Marino, the movie stars Patrick Warburton, Steve Zissis, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, Kumail Nanjiani, and Big Lebowski nihilist Peter Stormare.

Below, Jacobs talks more about Bad MIlo! while gamely ignoring the egregious amount of times your writer uses the phrase “butt-demon” in the course of our conversation

'We Are What We Are': Check out a clip from the new cannibal horror film -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We-Are-What-We-Are.jpg

To call the new film We Are What We Are a “cannibal movie” is both misleading and does a disservice to this latest collaboration from writer-director Jim Mickle and actor-writer Nick Damici, whose previous credits include 2010’s apocalypse vampire movie Stake Land. A thoroughly reimagined remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s acclaimed 2010 film, Mickle’s movie is as much about family, religion, and the unique flavor of beautiful-but-beleaguered upstate New York as it is about people eating human flesh.

'We Are What We Are' filmmakers talk about their cannibal thriller...over home-cooked dinner!

We-Are-What-We-Are.jpg

Actor and screenwriter Nick Damici’s new film We Are What We Are concerns a close-knit clan of cannibals. So when he welcomes EW into his New York apartment for a home-cooked dinner one obvious question springs to mind: You’re not going to eat me, right? “No, but you’ll notice my girlfriend’s not here,” Damici chuckles, before handing out plates of spicy peppers and what one hopes are pork sausages to EW and We Are What We Are director and cowriter Jim Mickle.

Fantastic Fest preview: Director E.L. Katz talks about his demented black-comedy 'Cheap Thrills'

Cheap-Thrills.jpg

How crazy would you be prepared to get for $50? What about $500? What about a quarter of a million dollars? Such questions form the dramatic spine of the booze- and drugs-fueled black comedy Cheap Thrills, which is screening at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. Anchorman star David Koechner and Sara Paxton play a rich couple who challenge a pair of much poorer new acquaintances — portrayed by Pat Healy and Can’t Hardly Wait actor Ethan Embry — to complete a series of ever more out-there challenges for increasing amounts of cheddar.

Cheap Thrills is the directorial debut of screenwriter Evan “E.L.” Katz, who penned the slasher movie Home Sick, the first film from You’re Next director Adam Wingard, and also co-wrote Wingard’s follow-up, the freakish, psychotropic Pop Skull. Cheap Thrills itself was written by David Chirchirillo and Trent Haaga, but Katz says he found it easy to empathize with the cash-poor plight of Healy and Embry’s characters. “I’ve done a lot of dumb s— for money,” he admits.

Below, Katz talks more about Cheap Thrills, how Fantastic Fest helped make him the man he is today, and why he might soon become a big cheese in Brazil.
