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.

Liev Schreiber tackles space zombies (or something, anyway) in 'The Last Days on Mars' trailer

Is that a space zombie harassing Ray Donovan in the international trailer for the new science fiction movie, The Last Days on Mars? Honestly, we haven’t a clue (although it looks like that’s the case). To find out for sure, horror fans will have to wait until October 31, when the debut movie from director Ruairi Robinson will be available on VOD, or December 6, the date it debuts in cinemas

But why not make your own educated guess after checking out the clip below? READ FULL STORY

Check out the poster for 'Argento's Dracula 3D' -- EXCLUSIVE

It seems incredible that horror legend and giallo king Dario Argento spent more than four decades in the business without making a version of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel Dracula. But the director has now rectified that omission by putting his name, in a very real sense, to Argento’s Dracula 3-D.

The Zombots attack in 'Frankenstein's Army' clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

From the Transformers movies to The World’s End to Frances Ha (probably), you can hardly move these days without seeing films about killer robots. But only the World War II-set Frankenstein’s Army boasts killer Zombots. This unforgettably grotesque, one-of-a-kind, found-footage horror movie stars Luke Newberry and Joshua Sasse as Russian soldiers on a mission behind German lines and Karel Roden as a crazed descendant of Baron von Frankenstein who has created an army of half-zombie, half-machine monstrosities.

The demented work of first-time filmmaker Richard Raaphorst, Frankenstein’s Army is unleashed to Blu-ray and DVD today. But the brave of heart can check out an exclusive, mayhem-filled, and strong-language-featuring clip below.

Fantastic Fest announces closing night film

Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.

'Curse of Chucky': First clip from the horror sequel -- EXCLUSIVE

Curse-of-Chucky.jpg

This October, the pitter-patter of tiny feet will once again be an occasion for screams of terror rather than squeals of joy when horror sequel Curse of Chucky premieres on Blu-Ray and DVD. The sixth entry in the Child’s Play franchise — but the first since 2004’s Seed of Chucky — the movie once again finds the great Brad Dourif voicing the titular, possessed, and homicidal doll and leading a cast which also includes his daughter Fiona (True Blood), A. Martinez (Longmire), Danielle Bisutti, and Brennan Elliott.

'Carrie' trailer: Chloe Moretz causes some mayhem

Carrie-Trailer-2.jpg

Carrie just wants to be normal.

Unfortunately, that’s not in the cards for the telekinetic teenage loner. Not when your abusive mother tells you that all the kids are going to laugh at you, shames you with bible verses (and some non-textual religious zealotry), and occasionally locks you in a closet as punishment.

Chloe Moretz stars as the tragic title character in Kimberly Peirce’s update of  Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film. Julianne Moore gets the lucky task of playing her psychotic mother.

Take a look at the latest blood-soaked trailer for Carrie after the jump.

'You're Next': How a group of indie filmmakers produced one of 2013's most terrifying movies

Director Adam Wingard has received rave reviews for his R-rated, home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next, which screened at several film festivals over the past couple of years and will be released August 23. But his often gore-drenched creative sensibility — and twisted sense of humor — is not everyone’s cup of Darjeeling. In the spring of 2007, for instance, the then just the 24-year-old Wingard appeared on the premiere episode of Fox TV’s On The Lot, a much-hyped but now little-remembered, Steven Spielberg-produced filmmakers’ competition with the first prize of a million-dollar development deal at Dreamworks. As Wingard recalls, he was immediately put off by the reality show vibe of the televised contest and decided to self-sabotage. So in an unaired segment, he pitched a movie about a giant, skinless, suburbia-terrorizing dog named Roger to the show’s three judges: Brett Ratner, Carrie Fisher, and Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall. “I kept emphasizing how violent the film needed to be, and I was doing a dance as I was pitching,” says Wingard, who, it is probably worth noting, stands 6 feet 4 inches tall. “The whole thing was like a performance art piece. I was shocked they didn’t use it because I went out of my way to make an ass out of myself on national television. It was gold!” Needless to say, the Alabama-raised Wingard did not progress to the next round. “I don’t remember what the judges said,” he chuckles, “but I think they were really disappointed in me.” READ FULL STORY

'A Field In England,' 'Witching & Bitching,' and organ trafficking doc to screen at Fantastic Fest

British filmmaker Ben Wheatley’s English Civil War-set film A Field In England and cult director Alex de la Iglesia’s Witching & Bitching will both receive their U.S. premieres at this year’s Fantastic Fest, which revealed its second wave of programming today.

Other movies set to play at the Austin, Texas-based genre festival — which runs September 19-26 at Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline — include the horror remake Patrick, the Elijah Wood-starring Grand Piano, a David Cronenberg-narrated documentary called Tales From the Organ Trade about the secret world of international organ trafficking, and the Canadian film Septic Man, which concerns a person who undergoes “a hideous transformation when trapped inside a septic tank.” It’s enough to put you off your BBQ!

As previously announced, the festival’s opening night film will be Robert Rodriguez’s action sequel Machete Kills.

'You're Next' clip: Axe beats knives -- VIDEO

How terrifying is the new home invasion movie You’re Next? Very. It is also extremely funny, although a new clip from director Adam Wingard’s film — like its trailer — concentrates on the project’s potentially bone-splintering elements rather than its rib-tickling ones.

You’re Next stars Sharni Vinson (Step Up 3D), AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die), and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) and hits cinemas Aug. 23. You can check out the new clip and the film’s trailer below.
