Last night, the immersive workshop for aspiring genre filmmakers, Shudder Labs, kicked-off its second year at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. Shudder Labs will continue through Thursday, June 15th and is hosted by AMC Networks premium streaming video service Shudder.

This year’s workshop is led by Masters-in-Residence Mike Flanagan (director, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Hush, the upcoming Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game) and Nick Antosca (screenwriter, Channel Zero, Hannibal, The Forest). In addition, Shudder Labs’ mentors this year are Sarah Adina Smith (writer/director, Buster’s Mal Heart, The Midnight Swim) as well as Larry Fessenden (director, Habit, The Last Winter) and Lindsay Peters (Director of the Frontieres International Co-Production Market).

The full list of this year’s Shudder Labs fellows, alongside synopses of their projects, are listed below.

MEET THE FELLOWS:

Richard Kodai –  BE A GOOD GIRL: A teenage girl is kidnapped and held in a basement by a middle-aged man. As time passes, she learns that there may be an unusual and terrifying reason why she is there: a dark secret she never saw coming.

 

Megan Rosati – BLOOM: When a young woman obsessed with beauty gets a job working for the trendy wellness company, BLOOM, her obsession with their products plunges her into a nightmare world and sends her on a desperate mission to uncover what’s really inside their “all-natural” supplements.

 

Becky and Nick Sayers – DISCONNECTED: Everyone is now connected and empowered through devices augmenting the brain. But this technology turns against a couple when their hike becomes a fight for survival from a group of demented hackers.

 

Danny Valentine and Reid Engwall – FISHHOOK: On the verge of starvation in the brutal Alaskan winter, a callused single mother and her eccentric son must find a way to save themselves and the isolated community they call home from a parasite that curses its hosts with insatiable hunger and libido.

 

Evan Brace – KNOWN AMONG MOUNTAINS: In a rural Midwestern town, a quiet working class community bears witness to strange events after a discovery in a rock quarry.

 

Matt MacDonald – MOMMY IS MISSING: A young girl discovers a mysterious vintage video game that just might unravel her family’s secret history.

 

Dani Parker – SAFE WORD: When a dominatrix who suffers from blackout spells meets an isolated IT tech who transforms into a monster when he’s aroused, a vigilante duo is born. A modern horror spin on Beauty and the Beast.

 

Kristen Hansen – SWITCHER: A man murders a “promiscuous” woman. When he wakes up the next day as her, he experiences what it’s like to be a woman… and finds he quite enjoys it.

 

Phillip Carroll, Jr – THE HONEYMOON PHASE: A young woman must endure a 30-day experiment exploring the honeymoon phase, while isolated with a man who may or may not be her husband.

Spike’s “The Mist” series finally gets a trailer!

Spike’s “The Mist” series finally gets a trailer!

I have often sung the praises of Darabont’s 2007 The Mist adaptation. From the casting, to the interesting changes that Darabont made, the movie is a social conscious monster film that plays so deftly in the muddy mire of human fallibility that it is at once one of the better Stephen King adaptions ever made… Continue Reading

Starz’ “American Gods” trailer brings us buckets of blood!

Starz’ “American Gods” trailer brings us buckets of blood!

I admittedly am already strongly biased towards liking Starz’ new series “American Gods”. Based on the book of the same name from master storyteller Neil Gaiman, this things looks absolutely STUNNING. Starz already has their teeth sunk in deep with the badassery that is Ash vs. Evil Dead, so its hard not to already be… Continue Reading

“This Is Where the A**holes Live”: Visit Negan’s Sanctuary

“This Is Where the A**holes Live”: Visit Negan’s Sanctuary

  So AMC has released a bevy of new clips from episode 4 of Season 7 of TWD. Until now we have pretty much had the impression of each of this new world’s fiefdoms acting autonomously with Negan only calling when its time for “tribute”. These new clips, however, give us a sense that Negan… Continue Reading
