Before their collaboration on Furtney’s 2010 New Terminal Hotel, back in 2004 the core team of writer-director BC Furtney, director of photography Nickolas Rossi, composer Trevin Pinto and actress Laura Leigh worked together for the first time to create the prize-winning, sexy-bloody murder mystery Mister Eryams. On Eryams’ heels came Disposer and Perfect, both starring Leigh in leading roles. Two later shorts fill out a new DVD collection now available on Amazon.com (Culinary Art and Voices).

New Terminal Hotel as Pulp Fiction

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

nexgenpinupA new review in NexGen Pulp’s Spring 2010 issue provides a fresh perspective on New Terminal Hotel, parting from the dumbed-down, bloodporn junkie point of view found in most horror reviews found online.

When I first read BC’s script for NTH, I thought gothic noir. Of course it’s more than that, but as a fan of classic noir films, I was delighted by the story. I’m even more taken with the finished product. NexGen seems to feel the same way calling it an “exciting new incarnation of new film noir”, with allusions to Hitchcock, Lovecraft and Poe.

Here are a few excerpts:

“It is reminiscent of more than one pulp genre. To begin with, the setting of the seedy hotel, the murders, and the unfolding mystery as to what motivates the killer all hearken back to the classic detective stories, only the film puts the audience in the P.I.’s chair.”

“It is the character of that killer, Don Malek, that is the mystery. It is hard to tell, at first, if his actions and mannerisms are coming from twisted eccentricity or some yet to be revealed depth. It saves the first half of the film from becoming yet another Hostel-style horror film that relies on shock factor in place of character development.”

“New Terminal Hotel is an exciting new incarnation of new film noir and new pulp fiction. It is firmly rooted in the spirit of the old pulps but develops in a modern setting relevant to a modern viewer. That said, it may not be for every pulp fan, as the “genre” is a wide one. But horror fans, craving more than cheap tricks and surprise turns of character masquerading as psychological depth, will.”

Disposer Featured on SPIKE TV

Friday, April 30th, 2010

If you haven’t seen it, Spike TV is running  Disposer (2004), writer-director BC Furtney’s second contribution to Fangoria’s Blood Drive DVD series. After the Lynchian Mister Eryams was awarded Best Film of the shorts selected for Blood Drive I, Furtney decided to re-assemble his team and go straight for the sex and gore this time around. No thinking required (although I do have some theories).

fangoblooddriveNew Terminal Hotel’s Laura Leigh (who graced the covers of two Blood Drive releases) stars in both films. Apparently, Leigh’s late-night confession to a deep-seated phobia of garbage disposals led to BC writing and handing her the Disposer script the next morning.

The film co-stars Wayne Kryka, who also makes a cameo appearance in New Terminal Hotel.

The thunderous audience response to Disposer‘s theatrical premiere, opening the NY Horror Festival that year, was legendary. The film still garners requests for festival screenings world-wide.

See it for yourself.

And while you’re at it, go get your copy of New Terminal Hotel on Amazon while supplies last…
