Hangman (2015) - News Poster

Pig Review [SXSW 2017]

Every so often, a movie comes along that words cannot serviceably justify. When you’re a horror degenerate like myself, that “so often” timeframe is a little more frequent. Adam Mason’s Pig is one such title; a despicable, mean-spirited, tragically pointless torture bomb. So sickening that it’s been hidden since 2010 without release, minus a live world premiere on website Bloody Disgusting. Pig: The Final Screenings read new promotional materials, because it’s set to be destroyed after South by Southwest 2017. At least I can say “I’ve seen Pig!” when horror buffs discuss lost movies years from now? Whatever that’s worth.

Mason ties his camera to leading man/co-writer Andrew Howard, who stars as a backwoods lunatic with perverse day plans. On his trailer plot are four captives, all in different locations. When he returns from bashing one’s skull in (the film’s opening sequence

Interview: Jeremy Sisto Talks Hangman (Exclusive)

Interview: Jeremy Sisto Talks Hangman (Exclusive)
People can understandably become frightened and alarmed when they feel that someone, particularly an ominous stranger who they know nothing about, seeks joy in causing them irrevocable emotional and physical harm. When that danger finally appears to begin dissipating, the victims’ sense of self-consciousness also begins to dwindle, until they realize their opponent has never actually given up on preying on their vulnerabilities. That powerful exploration into the drastic measures people are willing to take in order to protect themselves and their families is grippingly presented in the new horror film, ‘Hangman.’ The thriller, which Alchemy distributed on Blu-ray and DVD on February 9, had its World Premiere during the [ Read More ]

Hangman Review

Hangman may be just another down-and-dirty found footage flick at heart, but Adam Mason’s SXSW Midnighter turns the mundane format into a nightmarish invasion of privacy. His killer, whose calling card is that of a noose-tightener, plays the long game here. Action isn’t rushed and pacing is drawn out like taffy, but Mason’s meticulous dissection of a first-hand home invasion works where other equal efforts become dull and gimmicky. Families should feel safe together, but Hangman warps feelings of barricaded tranquility into voyeuristic naughtiness caught on the camera of a reckless stalker. He sees you when your sleeping, he knows when you’re awake, yet the “Hangman” is no Santa Claus – unless you consider backwash in your Oj a present.

Told through the eyes of a mask-wearing figure known as “Hangman” (Eric Michael Cole), we watch helplessly as the crazed psycho torments an unsuspecting family. Aaron (Jeremy Sisto

Poster and trailer for supernatural horror Anguish

Ahead of its UK premiere at Glasgow FrightFest this coming week, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming supernatural horror Anguish; take a look here…

Teenage Tess has been suffering from anxiety ever since her mother Jessica discovered her banging her head against the wall when she was a child. On a steady diet of medication ever since, it becomes clear her dissociative identity disorder condition might not be necessarily psychological when they move to a small house in Texas and Tess begins experiencing hallucinations suggesting she’s more susceptible to spirits of the deceased. Especially ghost girl Lucy killed in a tragic accident and still being grieved for by her tormented mother. Eerie, jittery and surprisingly moving, Anguish is the creepiest and most resonant American independent horror since It Follows, showcasing a breakout performance by Ryan Simpkins (Twixt, Surveillance, Hangman) playing the withdrawn Tess.

Written and directed by Sonny Mullhi,

A New Trailer For Misconduct Shows An All-Star Cast Working Hard

If movies have taught us anything, it is that nothing good ever comes of cheating on your spouse. Michael Douglas learned the same in Fatal Attraction and, at the other end of the genre spectrum, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau learned the same in The Other Woman. Now, it appears to be the turn of Josh Duhamel, as he finds himself caught in a ‘honey-trap’ in Misconduct – for which we now have a trailer.

The all-star cast makes the film seem very impressive. Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, Malin Akerman, Julia Stiles and Alice Eve all join Duhamel in working hard to hit the right notes in the script by Simon Boyes (Hangman) and newcomer Adam Mason. However, if this trailer is anything to go by, the entire endeavour is at risk of collapsing under its own, hefty weight.

Duhamel stars as a young lawyer who attempts to face down a senior and well-connected pharmaceutical executive (Anthony Hopkins). However,

Frightfest 2015: ‘Hangman’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jeremy Sisto, Kate Ashfield, Ryan Simpkins, Ty Simpkins, Eric Michael Cole | Written by Adam Mason, Simon Boyes | Directed by Adam Mason

I can’t imagine what it must feel like to return home after a family holiday, only to find your house as well as your belongings trashed by an intruder. That’s exactly what happens to Aaron (Jeremy Sisto, Wrong Turn) and Beth (Kate Ashfield, Shaun of the Dead) Miller in Adam Mason’s (Broken) latest thriller, Hangman.

However, unlike most cases, this isn’t the work of a vagrant or thief, this is something much more sinister. You see, the person who broke in to the Miller family home, never left and with the help of cameras set up around the house, he can monitor their every move and eavesdrop on every conversation. What starts as minor interaction such as helping himself to food and the families own toiletries,

  • Nerdly
FrightFest alumnus Adam Mason returns to the fold with Hangman, a found-footage Funny Games. Arriving back from a two-week holiday, the Miller family unwittingly play host to a cold-hearted malevolent intruder who has broken into their home – and stayed there.

Nor do they realise their true nightmares have only just begun. Horrors of the everyday reach a terrifying crescendo in this disturbing twist on the home invasion thriller bound to make your skin crawl.

Nerdly writer and host of the Britflicks podcast, Stuart Wright, speaks to Hangman director Adam Mason about his film, which screens on Saturday 29th August at 1.50pm in Discovery Screen 2.

Jeremy Sisto on Classic "Rollin' with the Homies" Scene in "Clueless" -- "I Don't Even Remember Doing It!"

  • TooFab
Note: This article was originally posted in March, but what better way to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary on July 19th than with Elton doing his "Rolling with the Homies" dance?! This year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of "Clueless" -- and if you're feeling old right about now, you're not alone. Jeremy Sisto was only 19 when he nabbed his first big role as Elton, the dude who made an unwanted move on Alicia Silverstone's Cher and couldn't find his Cranberries CD anywhere. Now 40, he can't believe some of the smallest moments from the film are so memorable for fans ... especially one now-classic bit between him and the late Brittany Murphy. These days, Sisto is at a creepy point in his career, at least when it comes to his roles. The actor was at SXSW to screen his new found-footage film, "Hangman," about a family who is

The Hangman Terrorizes Amy Smart and Jeremy Sisto in Adam Mason's Next [Trailer]

We've been signing the praises of Adam Mason on the site for years. The American horror director has a taste for the off-beat and usually has a very specific take on what would seen to be a generic genre exercise. Blood River comes immediately to mind, but he's made some great films over the past years including Luster and Not Safe for Work, which he co-wrote with long time collaborator Simon Boyes.

His new film is called Hangman. It recently played at SXSW to great praise, so we tracked down the first trailer for you to take a look at. Again, while the footage may appear to ape the Paranormal Activity found footage feel, you can tell there is something much more sinis [Continued ...]
