Super Duper Shock Cinema Podcast Episode #4 with Zach Green and Richard Powell from Fatal Pictures
In this episode of the Super Duper Shock Cinema podcast, I’ll be talking to Zach Green and Richard Powell from Fatal Pictures (pictured here with “Worm” and “Familiar” star Robert Nolan). They have a pretty impressive body of film work thus far, and are highly skilled at giving us a glimpse of all the scary things that might lie beneath the surface of the plain and ordinary. I was very fortunate to get these guy’s thoughts on independent movie making, and what’s in store next for them. Take a listen and I’m sure you will have the appreciation for them as dedicated filmmakers that I do. Check out the trailer from their film ”Familiar” and you’ll see what I mean. Listen to the interview here.

A VILE INTERVIEW WITH RICHARD POWELL AND ZACH GREEN – THE CREATIVE TEAM BEHIND FATAL PICTURES
In 2007, Writer/Director Richard Powell and Producer/Editor/Casting Director Zach Green founded the Toronto, Ontario-based independent film company, FATAL PICTURES INC. In a startlingly short period of time, FATAL has been responsible for bringing us some extraordinary short horror films; the most well-known being 2010′s WORM (soon to be developed into FATAL’S first feature-length film), and 2012′s Familiar (each starring the intensely arresting actor, Robert Nolan). After viewing their work, we knew we had to get an interview. Thankfully, Richard and Zach jumped on board to answer some of our questions… Read interview here.

FATAL PICTURES is proud to announce “FAMILIAR” is an Official Selection @ Texas Frightmare Weekend, this May 3rd 4th & 5th (2013)
On Saturday, May 4th, Texas Frightmare Weekend kicks off their powerful threefer of hotly-anticipated chillers with the Texas Premiere of Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac at 8:00PM! In this brutal, unrelenting, first-person remake of William Lustig’s 1980 classic, Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed his long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill. Maniac will see US distribution through IFC Midnight on June 21st in theaters and via cable and digital VOD. At 10:00PM is Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, his genre-defying follow-up to 2012’s Kill List, produced by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead). Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris’s dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him the wrong way, over a very jagged edge. Sightseers will see US distribution through IFC Films on May 10th in theaters and through Video On Demand. And at midnight, TFW’s serving up the Texas Premiere of Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, the acclaimed Interview with the Vampire director’s long-awaited return to the land of the undead! Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) is a precocious girl with a bent for storytelling. A natural introvert, her idea of a good time is to put pen to paper and reflect on her inner life. Her “sister” Clara (Gemma Arterton) is the complete opposite: extroverted and sexual, she struts around in stilettos and skin-tight garb, attracting hungry male gazes wherever she goes. Both carry secrets from deep in their shared past — all 200 years of it. Byzantium will see US distribution through IFC Films during the Summer of 2013. Saturday’s free screenings are courtesy of IFC Films and IFC Midnight, free for weekend and Saturday passholders, and will conveniently take place at The Hyatt Regency DFW – the home of Texas Frightmare Weekend! www.texasfrightmareweekend.com
