Icons of Fright talks to FELT Director Jason Banker and Star/Co-Writer Amy Everson

FELT BANNER

Jason Banker’s FELT is now in theaters and is a film that screams to be watched. Revolving around a victim of rape and the psychological damage she goes through and the various ways she copes with it, the film is quite easily one of the best of the year. Banker, along with the film’s star […]

THE FILM As a horror fan and budding collector back in the heydays of the original television broadcasts of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and when Erasure and Depeche Mode were at the height of their popularity in the United States, I would spend many a free afternoon with my nose stuck in books courtesy […]

“My life is a fucking nightmare.” That opening line sets the tone for FELT, spoken in voice over by Amy (Amy Everson, who co-wrote the film with directed Jason Banker, (TOAD ROAD), based on experiences in her past) as she is walking barefoot down the street, sporting what looks to be a frog onesie. I’m […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: MEATHEAD GOES HOG WILD

MEATHEAD GOES HOG WILD alterate shot

Films detailing a character’s descent into madness are always a tricky game. If done right, you get TAXI DRIVER or FALLING DOWN, and if you don’t succeed, you get a completely disjointed film that loses its viewers when the tone of the film makes its switch. Thankfully, the Sean Pierce, Zach Harris and Kevin Cline-directed MEATHEAD […]
