Fantasy Island, Review: Risks submersion

Fantasy Island, Review: Risks submersion Inspired is equal measure by two incompatible sources as divergent as Agatha Christie and the U.S.S.R. film Solaris, Fantasy Island plays deep desires against harsh realities in an implausible tale that is part vendetta, part science fiction and part psychic phenomena. There are too many back-stories and unexplained events, as a result of which the movie gets bogged down. In the end, you will make sense of it only if you stop analysing or questioning t...

Hey filmmakers So recently I had a conversation with a long time cinematographer who asked me what specific types of films we wanted for our Forty and Over Film Festival... and since we are open to all genres I would suggest the following wish list....  If your film Preaches, then we'd love for it to Inspire.  If yours Documents, then we'd love for it to Educate. And if your film is Fictional, then we hope it Entertains.  Our festival is looking for the best quality films...

The Commuter, review: Taken, for a $100,000 ride

The Commuter, review: Taken, for a $100,000 ride More than the USA, India has a several million persons commuting to and fro work in local trains on a daily basis. There are groups that travel in the same train every day, sit at the same spot and forge strong friendships, for decades. Mumbai-ites pack local trains much beyond capacity and travel on footboards too, since the city is overpopulated and these are open trains. Metro rails are coming along, and gradually supplementing the local rak...

Despair, Exclusive first-ever review, by Siraj Syed: Performances dispel the gloom in this psycho thriller

Despair, Exclusive first-ever review, by Siraj Syed: Performances dispel the gloom in this psycho thriller Being humane can cost you dear could be one take away from the indie psychological thriller, Despair. Disjointed families and obsession can kill, as had been demonstrated by so many films of yore, and this could have been one more for the record, had it not been for the other take away: sympathy and empathy are the cornerstones of love, and even if you have to pay a heavy price for nurtu...

Macabre Faire Film Festival

Macabre Faire Film Festival Mission:

To provide a respectful, competitive, celebratory and affordable film fest event that is judged by a panel for independent filmmakers to enter their Strange-ifical, Weird-ifical, Horror-ifical, Sci-fi-tastical, Fantastical and Macabre-licious films to be viewed by the fans with the opportunity to win awards, increase film visibility via press and possibly obtain distribution. All this while maintaining manageable entry fees.

What's it all about?

TwitchTwitch Productions presents Long Island's only Macabre Faire Film Festival 2x a year with its main focus always being the "Official Selections" and its filmmakers/crew.

For starters the word "Macabre" is pronounced: Ma-Cob. The "re" is hardly ever heard. What does it mean?

Although it is an adjective meaning: disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury, we usually approach the Macabre Faire Film Festival with a lighter touch in the sense that, not all of the films screened have been a gore fest. Of course, there isn't anything wrong with adding some gore to a macabre film fest but, when we hear the word "Macabre" we remember those hauntingly fascinating films that starred legendary greats such as: Vincent Price & Peter Cushing. Or those fantastic Gothic horrors like those from "Hammer" films. These names in themselves represent what "macabre" means to us. What we are saying is that the word "Macabre" doesn't have to be about the hardcore gore, violence or scare but instead it could be about what you don't see or hear but, somehow manages to reach your fear's core. Let's also not forget those fantasy films or comedies with their horror twists. Truth be told that those exist too and yes, we welcome them. How can we not? Would you have turned down something like "The Evil Dead's: Army of Darkness" which is both a fantasy, a comedy and a horror wrapped into a tight burrito? Yeah, we wouldn't either. So folks, this is what many of the films selected for the Macabre Faire Film Festival have to offer. About the only thing we may have to say "No Thanks" to would be a romantic comedy/drama... unless, there's a monster or weird dark force that takes over then we may reconsider.

We have had judges and guests such as director Stevan Mena "Bereavement", Eileen Dietz "The Exorcist", Doug Jones "Hell Boy", Cleve Hall "Monster Man", Michael Gingold "Fangoria", Nick Nicholson "CNN Film Critic", Evan Ginzburg "The Wrestler" and others.

Trophies & Award Certificates will be presented.

Also note: Elsie Ginsberg is currently the Acquisitions Manager for the popular interactive live streaming: www.MonsterChannel.Tv With this said, all films submitted to the Macabre Faire Film Festival become eligible to be part of the channel's programming. All films will undergo review by the Monster Channel's additional management team for consideration. If a film is not chosen as an Official Selection for the Macabre Faire Film Festival this does not mean that the film may not be considered for programming on the Monster Channel. Forms from Fourth Castle that grants permission to showcase your film to Monster Channel's captured audience can be found with the Film Fest forms at: www.MacabreFaireFilmFest.com

Keep in mind, the Monster Channel is a bonus feature to submitting your film to the Macabre Faire Film Festival and completely optional. Programming shall begin streaming on the Monster Channel of the selected original films by the later part of 2013.

The Macabre Faire Film Festival currently takes place at the Best Western Mill River Manor Hotel in Rockville Centre, NY offering 3 screening rooms. This allows us to screen between 25-50 films per event (totals vary according to amount of days allocated for the event). It is presented by our umbrella company "TwitchTwitch Productions" which is family owned and operated. The brand "Macabre Faire" may be recognized by many because of it's affiliation with the "Macabre Faire" convention-like party events that take place through out the year occasionally for a weekend long gathering.

Our Macabre Faire events and Film Festival have a reputation for being a very friendly environment with a wonderful celebratory ambiance within an intimately sized space. Here's what Fox 5 News had to say about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oVRMl4BQwQ&feature=share
