Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: LARRY FESSENDEN

There is no better friend to the independent horror filmmaker that Larry Fessenden; his work as producer and actor in many of the early films of the new indie horror movement, and his dedication and devotion to horror filmmaking as one of the only places left for a true film auteur, have made him something of a patron saint to the independent horror filmmaking world. It’s just the icing on the cake that he also happens to be a great filmmaker, too.

Book Review: The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood

Written in 1910 by Algernon Blackwood, The Wendigo popularizes an evil creature of legend from the Algonquian people of Native American Indians. The wendigo is a cannibalistic spirit that can either possess humans or is the creature in which humans can transform. Often described as extremely gaunt, skeletal gray in color and smelling of decaying flesh; the wendigo is associated with freezing winters, extreme famine but also gluttony.

10 Larry Fessenden Films

Every now and then an actor will find himself synonymous with a particular genre. Whether this is by mere choice or a matter of excelling at a particular style of story, it varies from case to case. This week on Episode 117 of the Bloody Good Horror Podcast we are covering the recent DVD release of "I Sell the Dead". Besides your big names involved with the movie like Dominic Monaghan or Ron Perlman, you'll see another character actor that you may recognize, though you may not be able to put your finger on exactly where you know him from. You just know that he looks familiar. Such is the case of Larry Fessenden.

The Last Winter (REVIEW)

“The Last Winter” borrows its setting from one of the greatest horror movies ever made while its plot is virtually identical to that of one of the most notorious critical flops of recent years. To be fair, “The Last Winter” predates “The Happening” by two years but it brings to mind Shyamalan’s unintentional cheesefest as much as it does John Carpenter’s “The Thing.” It never approaches the extreme highs or lows of either movie but instead remains firmly in the center as a very well-made if slightly snoozy environmental thriller.
