Peter Strickland will not make crowd-pleasing movies

Few days before his movie Berberian Sound Studio opened at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, a newspaper story in Britain quoted director Peter Strickland as saying that he was delighted his countrymen were making “crowd-pleasing movies,” but he had no interest in doing the same.

Berberian Sound Studio

Director laughed in a one-on-one interview in a downtown Toronto office when the Straight mentioned the story, “You know what it’s like. You do the interview and you just say something at the very end and it ends up as the headline.”

That said, he was happy to expand on his feelings about making films for the masses. “I think, for me, you just do what’s interesting,” he said. “So I think part of the thing is that’s not the purpose of making a film, it’s just going with your gut instinct.”

“I think it’s like being in a candy store when you get a few months in a sound studio to do a film,” said Strickland. And he enjoys that candy so much that he formed a band in 1996, the Sonic Catering Band, to explore sounds most people wouldn’t think of as music.

Ten short films compete for the „Full Moon” Romania

The second edition of “FULL MOON” Horror & Fantasy Film Festival, the first and only Romanian festival focusing exclusively on genre cinema, will take place between August 14 and 18 in Biertan, Sibiu county.
Besides the competitive feature section focused exclusively on first and second directorial efforts we announced last week, starting this year, the festival puts forward a competition of fantastic shorts made in the last two years and never before seen in Romania.

The ten competition titles, selected by the short section programmer Cristi Mărculescu, come from 8 countries including Romania and compete for the festival trophy which will be awarded based on the audience’s vote. Here is the complete:

Out of competition, the FULL MOON festival decided to celebrate this year two countries whose fantastic cinema is more significant each year… Of course, this would be Spain and Belgium – two countries which, not at all accidentally, host two of the longest running genre festivals in the world (Sitges – 46 editions and Brussels – 32 editions).

Campaign for the Theatrical Distribution of “The Impaler”

Full moon Films is currently running a campaign on the popular crowd funding site Kick Starter to fund a $50,000 theatrical distribution of their feature film ”The Impaler.”

Pledging anywhere from $1 to $5000 gives the backers can receive a number of rewards, including signed posters, exclusive screenings, tickets to the LA premiere and even Producer credits.

”The Impaler” has just been accepted to the Bram Stocker International Film Festival in England, to have a world premiere 1 week before Halloween. It’s an adaptation of the real history of Vlad the Impaler, famous Romanian (Wallachian/Transylvanian) ruler, that became famous for impaling his Turkish enemies and building forests of spears and bodies. The film continues the legend, not so much along Bram Stoker’s novel, but with an authentic flavor of the country and its true facts.

Full Moon Films and Afflatus Productions has announced the arrival of Derek Hockenbrough’s “The Impaler.” The film looks to retell the original story of Dracula through the notorious Romanian ruler’s death and legacy. However, Vlad III seems to be appearing in more than the gore-ridden indie horror flick. Hockenbrough reassures horror fans that “The Impaler” is sure to keep you on your feet. “You won’t find any sparkling Ken doll vampires here.”

“We wanted to bring back the demon in vampire. That’s what we loved as kids and what better human host for a demon than Vlad III?” Hockenbrough said of the movie, “This being an Indie film, we are able to get away with a lot more than the studios. Our goal was to make a truly evil Dracula movie that would please both the hardcore genre fans and the general person just looking for a good scare. Either way, it’s going to surprise you.”

Full Moon Films is a division of Flawless Production Inc. company located in Tarzana, CA and run by Daniel Angel. For information call 323-373-3404 or visit http://www.theimpalermovie.com, Facebook.com/theimpalermovie, Twitter @theimpaler2013.
