We horror fans have been spoiled in recent years when it comes to home video titles, with labels like Scream Factory, Arrow, Synapse, Vinegar Syndrome, Blue Underground and several others releasing genre titles both classic and obscure on pristine high definition Blu-rays, often laden with tons of extra content for too much of a good thing. Now Lionsgate is throwing its hat into the special edition Blu-ray market with Chopping Mall, the first title in their new Vestron Video Collector’s Series. They couldn’t have picked a better title to kick off what is, based on the quality work here, a very promising new label.
Easily one of the more unforgettable films I’ve seen this year—genre or otherwise—is writer/director Nicolas Pesce’s The Eyes of My Mother, which follows a young woman named Francisca (Kika Magalhaes) as she copes with her loneliness through some rather depraved and heartbreaking ways.
The Eyes of My Mother recently played at the 2016 Fantastic Fest, and while at the festival, we had a chance to speak with the first-time feature filmmaker about his approach to his haunting character study, working with his incredible lead actress Magalhaes, and how he’s trying to bring back the feeling of the classic horror stories most of us grew up on, but with a bit of a modern twist.
