VIDEO GAME: UNTIL DAWN

UNTIL DAWN is an upcoming teen-slasher horror video game for Sony PS4, co-written by myself and Larry Fessenden with Supermassive Games, announced on Tuesday at Gamescom. There’s a trailer and writeup from executive producer Pete Samuels, on the Playstation Blog.

The player will be in control of eight teenage friends whose remote mountain getaway turns into a night of unexpected terror.  Part of the interactive fun will be the Butterfly Effect mechanic: decisions you make along the way, big or small, have rippling implications in the story, resulting in hundreds of different narrative experiences.  Any of the characters could survive, any could die.  The cast features Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville), Rami Malek (Short Term 12) and Brett Dalton (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

Some great press reaction so far: Kotaku, IGN, Gameinformer, Gamespot.   More to come soon!

My segment is based around the state of fear “Loss of Autonomy,” and is called “THE CAREGIVER,”  featuring Jeff Kaplan and Kersten Haile.

There’s a trailer you can check out here.

Tune in, set your DVRs!

New Short:
THE TRICK IS THE TREAT 

I’ve got a brand new psychedelic super-short up on ShockTillYouDrop, called THE TRICK IS THE TREAT.  It’s a candy-pail odyssey, filled with vintage plastic pumpkin buckets and more sweets than can possibly be healthy.

…And it’s narrated by the legendary ANGUS SCRIMM, the Tall Man from PHANTASM and frequent Glass Eye Pix collaborator (I SELL THE DEAD, SATAN HATES YOU, my radio play THE GRANDFATHER)

Here’s the isolated score track, a minimal Carpenter/Howarth inspired piece.

Please enjoy LOUD and IN THE DARK….!

THE OUTER CHURCH compilation

 

Very excited to announce I have a track on the new “elsewhere-music” compilation put out by The Outer Church (who has previously screened I CAN SEE YOU a few times at their live events) and Front & Follow records.

The comp is ridiculously good and I’m honored to have a spot on it.  If you like electronic / soundscape / psychedelic / noise / hauntology / occult music you will really dig this thing.

 

My track, “Tomorrow in New York City,” is a vastly-abstracted reworking of the title credit music from I CAN SEE YOU.

Available for pre-order here!  Out on August 5th!

Picnic At Hanging Rock
post for Criterion

I wrote this post for Criterion about the invisible “monster” in Peter Weir’s haunting and brilliant film, PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK.

Inspired in part by Jason Zinoman’s great book SHOCK VALUE, which is about the beginnings of New Horror in the 1970′s.

Stake Land Belle Webisode

Jim Mickle’s new Glass Eye Pix film STAKE LAND (which won the 2010 Midnight Madness Audience Award at the Toronto Film Fest) comes out April 22nd through IFC Midnight and Dark Sky/MPI Media Group.  I did the sound design!

I also directed a Character Prequel webisode to support the film – along with a host of other directors, including Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, JT Petty, and Danielle Harris.

Danielle Harris stars in my short, (labelled “Belle”), which just premiered on Apple.com!

Check it out!

The Innkeepers SXSW Premiere

Ti West’s new film The Innkeepers will be premiering at the SXSW film festival, March 12th.

I’ve spent the last few months designing the sound for the film, which features some awesome sound design centric sequences that can’t be revealed quite yet… but the brand new poster may yield some clues….

The amazing poster was designed by Tom Hodge aka The Dude Designs, who recently designed the also-amazing Hobo With a Shotgun poster.

THE OUTER CHURCH

I CAN SEE YOU and THE VIEWER will be screening in Brighton on Jan 13th, in what sounds like a pretty excellent night of psychedelic sound and visuals.  From The Outer Church Blog:

“The OC is proud to present two films by American director Graham Reznick in association with Aphasia Films/Glass Eye Pix. I Can See You (95 minutes) is a psychedelic campfire tale acclaimed by The New York Times as an “elusive, experimental scare flick [heralding] a splendid new filmmaker with one eye on genre mechanics, one eye on avant-garde conceits and a third eye for transcendental weirdness” while futuristic 3D short The Viewer (15 minutes) is “a telepathic interrogation experienced from the perspective of a suspected murderer.” Anaglyph glasses will be provided for the latter screening.

The uncanny atmosphere will be further compounded by live sets from The Haxan Cloak and The Larsen Effect. The Haxan Cloak is multi-instrumentalist Bobby Krlic, who employs a variety of textures to erect dense scuttling fields of sonic malevolence. The Larsen Effect is the solo project of guitarist Leee Nite, veteran of the psychick wars and such esteemed outfits as Skree, Thor’s Helmet, ManTouch and Morgen Und Nite. Visuals for The Larsen Effect will be provided by acclaimed videowitch Jade Boyd.”

Joseph Stannard, who organized the event, recently wrote a niece piece about me for The Wire magazine.

Radio Play:
THE GRANDFATHER

Glass Eye Pix has been producing a weekly radio/podcast series of audio drama called “Tales From Beyond The Pale.” Curated by Glenn McQuaid (“I Sell The Dead”) and Larry Fessenden (“The Last Winter,” “Habit,” “Wendigo”), episodes have featured actors like Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, James Le Gros, Kevin Corrigan, Joe Swanberg, and directors like Larry Fessenden, JT Petty, Joe Maggio, Glenn McQuaid and more.

My own episode, titled “The Grandfather,” features Angus Scrimm, best known as The Tall Man in the “Phantasm” series.  The cast also included Matt Huffman (“Satan Hates You”), Kate Sheil (Joe Swanberg’s upcoming “Silver Bullets”), Brenda Cooney (“I Sell The Dead”), and Michael D’Addario (Tom Stoppard’s “The Coast of Utopia).

I wrote, directed, sound designed and composed music for the piece.  It’s now available for purchase (2 bucks, less than a good cup of coffee!) at TalesFromBeyondThePale.com, go over and check it out!

Poster image designed by the awesome Gary Pullin, illustrator and art director of Rue Morgue magazine.

Summary: “A perfectly ordinary Grandfather feeds his perfectly ordinary cat, waiting for his perfectly happy family to arrive for a perfectly pleasant afternoon… until an unfortunate revelation puts them all on a tragic path, if the Grandfather can’t unravel their perfect mess first.

From Graham Reznick, director of I CAN SEE YOU and the 3D short THE VIEWER, as well as the sound designer on a half a dozen Glass Eye Pix films comes this startling tale starring the venerable Angus Scrimm in the titualar role.”

I CAN SEE YOU

REVIEWS!

“I CAN SEE YOU heralds a splendid new filmmaker with one eye on genre mechanics, one eye on avant-gard conceits and a third eye for transcendental weirdness” -THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Ultimately opting for Brakhage over butchery, this surprising horror debut hits us where it hurts by turning vision itself into a mind-frying source of anxiety…” -THE VILLAGE VOICE

“Without a doubt one of the most intriguing and well-crafted low-budget horror films in recent memory” -FANGORIA

“Critically lauded pic… could build a cult following… Reznick’s sound design effectively jangles nerves, and two setpieces trumpet his visual prowess: a languid lovemaking scene lit by indirect flashlight and a tour-de-force musical number” -VARIETY

“Critic’s Choice!”  -NY POST
