We’ll be giving our on-line DVD/Blu-ray Chopping List a big
update today, but first we’ve got a bunch of specific news to share, starting
with release date info/art on some notable forthcoming titles.
I think I’ve written something in this exact vein before,
but whatever AMERICAN HORROR STORY is (and it’s plenty), it’s never subtle. “The
Coat Hanger”—an episode that would put the titular object to the exact use its
name causes folks to cringe—began with a returning Dylan McDylan expressing
his inner struggle as the modern day Bloody Face to an unsuited therapist. Hint
after hint is laid out, until in the clearest terms possible this rat-tailed
Johnny offers, “I’m the son of Bloody Face.” In case you were still befuddled, ASYLUM
returned from its title sequence to tell Lana Winters there’s a psychopathic
baby in her womb.
Genre journalist and Fango contributor Lianne Spiderbaby's long-gestating chronicle of exploitation's finest femmes is hitting the press.
Australian writer/director Greg Mclean—who delivered the
goods with the gritty blood soaked nihilistic outback slasher WOLF CREEK and
the clever, subversive and fun killer crocodile flick ROGUE—is now unleashing a
monster-hunting maverick in the vein of an Indiana Jones type with his new
creation SEBASTIAN HAWKS. But this adventurer will not be found on the silver
screen (well, not yet). Right now, he’s comic creation that needs your help.
Did you feel that? A mech-sized look at PACIFIC RIM has been unleashed.
Just imagine if Ernest Hemingway hooked up with the Brothers
Grimm to write a screenplay based on the story of Snow White, and they got
Francisco Goya to shoot and Tod Browning to direct. If that sounds cool,
there’s even better news: Spanish filmmaker Pablo Berger has channeled all
those energies through his own artistic sensibility and made one of the year’s
most memorable, haunting films.
FANGORIA and Drafthouse want to send you to the front lines.
The self-explanatorily titled GANGSTERS, GUNS & ZOMBIES
hit DVD and Blu-ray yesterday, and just in case you need an extra incentive to
check it out, we’ve got a carnivorous clip (with not-safe-for-work language) to share with you.
It’s been way too long since the man who gave us HENRY:
PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER did a theatrical horror feature (or any kind of feature),
but now he’s returning to the genre.
It’s surprising that they’ve never had significant screen
time together, but now the horror icons are playing brothers in OLD 37; Fango
hit the set this week and came back with the first pic of the deadly duo in
A Georgia ghost in Connecticut's court?
The year is 1987. Progressive horror author
Clive Barker was nearing completion on his first feature as director, the cruel
parable of cancerous, sado-masochistic love called HELLRAISER. Barker had enlisted
underground Industrial duo Coil to provide a suitably sludgy and grinding musical
accompaniment to his dark romance, but Coil soon called off their efforts over what
was reportedly a mutual decision with Barker.
