The Woman in Black, 2—Angel of Death, Review: Hammer misses the nail

The Woman in Black, 2—Angel of Death, Review: Hammer misses the nail The Woman in Black, 2: Angel of Death (TWIB 2,-AOD) is made by the same production team behind the original Woman in Black, with a screenplay by Jon Croker, said to be based on Susan Hill's novel. There is a book called The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, but it is a novelisation of the film by crime writer Martyn Waites, from Jon Croker’s screenplay. So the sequel does not owe anything to the original. Versi...

But heaven help her if any single mother has to take the Baba...

It has a great-looking heroine with a starry presence, but a plot that is almost absent for 3/4ths of the film, convoluted when i...

Phoenix FearCON VI

The Phoenix FearCON VI
November 1st and 2nd 2014
at the Fear Farm
99th Avenue and McDowell
Phoenix Arizona
Contact: Chris McLennan Festival Director

FearCON is Arizona's largest independent horror event - feeding the fear since 2006
Taking place in November, it's a mashup of a independent horror film festival, mixed in with sideline entertainment, celebrity guests signing autographs and taking pics with fans, panel discussions with film makers, film distribution companies,flashmobs, Department of Zombie Defense military exercises, Caskets and Hearses on display, workshops with Special FX artists, Zombie choreographers, Zombie Runway Fashion shows, live musical entertainers, freak show artists, vendors of every kind of horror themed item on the planet.

The Phoenix FearCON has announced that FearCON is partnering with two of the largest Haunted Attractions in Arizona: The Fear Farm and 13th Floor Haunted House
What this means is that on the last weekend in October - Starting on October 31st through November 2nd 2014, the grounds where Fear Farm is located (99th Avenue & McDowell), will be home to the largest haunted event/festival/convention/film festival ever.

 This year we have two new events premiering:
The Ms FearCON Beauty Pageant - sponsored by Beautiful Monstrosity Magazine
The Monster Soccer Championships - sponsored by Advision Media

FearCON originally started out in 2006 as the Phoenix Fear Film Festival, showcasing local and international independent horror films from a small art gallery. We have since grown to a large theater and have been a vanguard event, dedicated to strengthening the general understanding of the Horror genre film culture by providing audiences independent, cutting‐edge, original films - and authentic representations of Horror.

Through time the festival has evolved to include a wider variety of horror genres for audiences to enjoy, all of which portray a different aspect of terror along with an atmosphere dedicated to the horror movie fan, including special musical presentations, special effects demonstrations, panel discussions, Q&A with cast and crew, fashion shows and more. To reflect these changes and highlight the festival’s evolution, the name of the festival has been changed to “Phoenix FearCON”

The 2014 Phoenix FearCON VI Film Festival will provide a significant opportunity for audiences to come and see what independent Horror is all about from different perspectives and reflect.
Cinema is a bridge that connects us all. The committee members and volunteers have a passion and energy dedicated to this event. Although the festival is still young, it is supported by its members with
unlimited potential. We hope to continue this event, not only for 2014, but for the coming years as well.

We hope to uncover new talent in the Horror film industry through this festival, and to develop and grow together.
