NYCHFF 2016: Night 1 Was Dark and Full of Screams
  |  @   |  

For the 14th straight year, the New York City Horror Film Festival (NYCHFF) opened last night. Started by the late Michael J. Hein, the NYCHFF is the largest and most recognized film festival to deal solely in the horror and sci-fi genres. It is running through Sunday, November 13th at the Cinepolis Chelsea, 260 West 23rd Street, in Manhattan. The festival screens approximately 50-60 films each year, welcomes horror legends, and honors the best work with an award ceremony. After a fairly disappointing week, I showed up last night to take in six (!) total horror films: two very good feature films, and four incredible shorts.

‘Saw’ Director Darren Lynn Bousman To Direct ‘Abattoir’
  |  @   |  

Darren Lynn Bousman, who is best known for directing Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, and Repo! The Genetic Opera, is now officially set to direct Abattoir. The movie will be based on a Radical Publishing comic miniseries by Bousman and his writing/producing partner Michael Peterson.

Considering the miniseries isn’t out yet, not too much is known of the premise aside fore the synopsis below and what Bousman has to say about it — both included below. What we do know, is that it will be some kind of a haunted house story, and those are always fun. That paired with the sick and twisted brain of Darren Lynn Bousman means that this could be one to watch for by both comic book and movie horror fans alike.

Here’s what Bousman had to say about the project:

I am addicted to haunted house stories. I love them… My addiction to this genre became an obsession to create one of my own. Abattoir is my spin on a haunted house story.
