Check out this highlight reel from Mascara & Popcorn’s 2013 Black Carpet Event, which took place in August at Montreal’s Theatre Ste-Catherine. Rue Morgue was honoured to have a considerable presence at the festival, which featured a master class with RM head ghoul Rodrigo Gudiño and My Bloody Valentine director George Mihalka, along with a retrospective of Rodrigo’s short films, an RM signing, and more.

Waxworks Records has released details on their upcoming Rosemary’s Baby vinyl, dropping January 28. Their presentation of Christopher Komeda’s score from Roman Polanski’s 1968 film sounds pretty spectacular; it’s been remixed and mastered for vinyl from the original analog master tapes, and features in-depth liner notes, unreleased production stills, and full package artwork by Jay Shaw. According to Waxwork’s press release, it’s the most comprehensive version of the film’s score so far, and a few lucky audiophiles will get a first-of-its-kind variant edition. Hit the jump for the details, courtesy of the press release.
Like many fans of their feminist rape revenge indie American Mary, I was a bit blindsided by news that the next movie coming from the Soska Sisters was a sequel to the 2006 WWE Studios produced slasher flick starring champion wrestler Glenn Jacobs, a.k.a. Kane.
And given how quickly it rolled before cameras (the entire film was shot in just 15 days in October), I assumed it was more or less a ‘director for hire’ paycheque type gig for the filmmakers. Or who knows? Maybe they were actually long time wrestling fans and this was one of their dream projects?
Either way, I had to find out. So I reached out to the Twisted Twins with just one question:
