All posts for the month May, 2012

Today we’re going to share an interview we recently conducted with ZACH GREEN (producer, editor and all round horror fan) you may remember him from our feature on the horror short FAMILIAR… If not click here for a refresher.

Hope you enjoy.

Tell us more about the festivals FAMILIAR has been screened at

Familiar had its World Premiere in Toronto via FANGORIAÕS FRIGHT NIGHTS on March 2nd. The film played before the very controversial Japanese Film, Battle Royale. Later in March, it went on to screen at A NIGHT OF HORROR in Australia. It also went on at ChicagoFearFest April 13-14 where Familiar won BEST SHORT FILM, Texas Frightmare Weekend May 4, 5, 6, Dark Brides Film Festival May 3rd-6th, and Fantaspoa International Film Festival, Celluloid Screams: Sheffield Horror Film Festival, Tri-Cities International Fantastic Film Festival,  Fright Night Film Festival, RoundCon Film Festival.

There will be many more as the days come. Please check www.FatalPictures.com for all upcoming screening dates.

What is it about horror that you find so compelling?

I really love the emotion fear. I feel your most alive when you fear for your life, or if you are just really terrified. Ive gained a really big appreciation and love for the genre over the years.

Can you describe the auditioning process of your movies and how you ultimately choose the right actor to portray your protagonist?

Well myself and Richard will audition actors we think would be able to portray what we are trying to depict, and have them one by one come in and audition for the part, most likely we will video tape all the auditions, so we can go back and watch them over and over and ultimately decide who we feel is best.

Your popularity is constantly on the rise with more people becoming aware of your company and projects, but how hard was it to get where you are now?

Well thank you very much for those kind words. I dont really know where i am now, i just know im lucky enough to be a part of Fatal Pictures and to bring the world these great films myself and Richard create.

We recently reviewed your horror short Familiar, tell us, how is the feedback thus far?

The film is really getting some good praise by top critics and getting into great film festivals thus far, so i cant complain to much. I think its getting some great responses and feedback all around.

Tell us about the project you are currently working on?

I am currently still working on promoting Familiar and really getting it into the world. But the next film from Fatal Pictures will be our feature film debut. “WORM”.

What has been the most rewarding part of your career so far?

Some of the most rewarding parts to me are when im on set seeing the film starting to take form and starting to become a film, and also once the film is finished, being able to watch the film with an audience and seeing how they react to it, as well as of course watching it do very well weather its getting into film festivals or getting a great review.

Any filmmakers that inspired you to get into the business?

I wouldn’t really say any one filmmaker/producer inspires me to do what I do, I just love the medium and love creating art for the rest of the world to see. There are many filmmakers and producers i think are awesome and do great work of course. I think Richards stories/scripts need to be told and produced.

And finally, who is your favourite horror icon?

Leatherface: From the Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre ‘1974. I think the character Leatherface is really terrifying and real. What to me makes him extremely scary is the fact he’s a real person.

There’s been a bit of confusion amongst some of our followers recently about which of us are on Twitter, which are posting updates and that sort of thing. I replied to the few messages we received, but then it dawned on me; we’ve been making changes that you’re not necessarily aware about.

So anyway I decided to put together this post to give you a bit more info about the team, including our roles in making Erebus Horror what it is.

Erebus – This is the guy who started it all off. I don’t really know much about him (despite the fact I’ve known him for several years from an online POV) But he is the creator of this site and the organisation. . He is not really in the picture anymore, but as many of you will know he is working on something big that will launch Erebus Horror further than we’ve ever gone.

Richard  – Erebus found me a couple of years ago ranting on a forum about how the Horror industry is in decline. Most people were telling me Twilight was great and that Horror was still very much part of our society (these were snot-nosed teenagers I imagine) Anyway he was the only one who agreed with me and we got talking from there. I can vouch for his Horror knowledge – It is IMMENSE. He has taught me so much over the past two years. Anyway last October I joined Erebus Horror as a blogger and took over from the man himself as he battled demons, conquered warlocks and generally saved the world…

Phil – He’s a good friend of mine who I drafted in to help out with the constant flow of emails, messages, Twitter follows, Facebook requests and everything else we were getting. He is another horror aficionado who has had his finger in just about every horror pie going! He’s a semi-professional musician, amateur SFX artist (mentored by the great Zoe Humphries who we interviewed a few months back) and owns the most extensive collection of horror movies I’ve ever seen!

We’re also in talks with others wishing to join so we’ll updates this page if that works out.

Hope this clears up any misconceptions you guys might have
