There are many horror films featuring killer animals (I have included one on this list as he has dual roles both as the victim and the attacker), however what I was most interested in - and the aim of my ‘Horror’s Best Animal Performances’ list - were animal roles which either impacted the plot in some way or would be remembered by audience as significant characters in the film; I also wanted to avoid those that were relegated to just being the antagonist. So obvious choices such as Jaws, The Birds, Mans Best Friend, Alligator, Rogue were all left out. In researching this I realized how few animal roles fit this criteria, and how few of those were canines. On to the list.

Matthew Revert's score, Taena Hoshi's striking design, Deiter Barry's convincingly putrid Tanuki creation, the small glimpse of Mika Toyama's manic performance and Dave Jackson's eye for all things vile, this trailer is putting out all the right vibes and I'm feeling real good about this one, in all the right places.

Exciting! Tristan Risk is stepping behind the camera to direct her very first short film, and we gotta say, it looks absolutely charming - in a horror sort of way. Parlour Tricks, as its titled, will playfully jump between morbid spiritual horror and belly grasping comedy. Just from our initial impression (review to follow soon), its a successful mash up reminiscent of both The Addams Family and Evil Dead. Keep an eye for news on the festival run schedule, but in the mean time, peep the official presser below.
