Faves of 2017: Writer and Director Izzy Lee


Izzy Lee has directed several award-winning short horror films, including Innsmouth (available to watch on Shudder); For a Good Time, Call; and Rites of Vengeance. She has also written several short stories for various anthologies. For more about her work, check out her website, Nihil Noctem Films.

John Carpenter live on Halloween night in Los Angeles: Fucking magical, I tell you. The band was in top form, even better than when I saw them in NYC last year. Plus, a lot of people showed up as Carpenter characters. I saw several Snake Plisskens, which delighted me to no end.

I loved writing this post on top recent and must-read horror books, like Paperbacks From Hell and Behind Her Eyes.

Super happy that John Wick 2 and Atomic Blonde came out in both the theatre and on Blu-ray. Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron are the ass-kickers we need in cinema. I could watch each of them kick the shit out of people forever.

The magical being that is Guillermo del Toro came out with a new film: The Shape of Water. May he never die.

The hateful being that is Harvey Weinstein got taken down–hard. I’m grateful for that.

I was thrilled to moderate a secret screening at AFI for the film Lowlife, directed by Ryan Prows. Quentin Tarantino came and asked a question or two. You’ll be able to see that footage on the Blu-ray/DVD release, as well as iTunes, sometime in the near future. The film is awesome, gritty, and violent. Watch for it.

Another film I loved on the festival circuit that will soon get a release—The Endless, directed by Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson. It’s one of those special films that has inherent truths in them when it comes to family and relationships—with a dose of the otherworldly.

This year also brought us the incredible Wonder Woman—THANK YOU—and the fantastic Get Out. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to have different points of view than the one in Hollywood that still lords over us all.
