Last year, Fango posted a list of the top 20 haunts across the U.S. With the most wonderful time of the year quickly approaching, here’s a look at those various spooky locales to check out!
With zombie noir film fest fave FLICK steadily approaching its October 26 DVD release (see previous item here) from Peace Arch Entertainment, Fango had a few words—and some exclusive storyboards and illustrated panels from the film—with the man responsible for the film’s distinctive visual style, graphic artist and illustrator Alex Tomlinson. First seizing the attention of writer/director David Howard through his illustrative work featured in FORTEAN TIMES, the filmmakers asked Tomlinson to put together a series of designs, which evolved from some simple supplementary material to help pitch the project, to a full-fledged, self-contained comic book universe telling the story of Johnny “Flick” Taylor, the awkwardly shy introvert with a penchant for rockabilly and murder in 1960s Britain.
John Erick Dowdle and his brother Drew are laughing in unison at FANGORIA. This is happening not out of disrespect (“We’re big fans,” the brothers say. “We have the QUARANTINE cover framed in our office!”) but because your correspondent has just asked about the possibility of the duo switching gears at some point and shooting a romantic comedy. The Dowdles previously won notice for the harrowing Handycam realism of THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES, then translated the ferocious Spanish zombie film [REC] into QUARANTINE for English-speaking audiences. Now they have DEVIL in theaters, based on a story by executive producer M. Night Shyamalan.
Niche imprint Radical Comics just keeps pumping out the four-color gold, steadily dropping jaws with titles like HOTWIRE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD, the devastating FVZA: FEDERAL VAMPIRE AND ZOMBIE AGENCY and Nick Percival’s arresting dark fantasy LEGENDS: THE ENCHANTED. LEGENDS, both written and illustrated by the talented Percival (pictured), takes place in a dark, richly evocative land of monsters and myth, where creatures of literate fantasy exist as immortal demigods. When Pinocchio—yes, Pinocchio—is found murdered, the narrative morphs from violent fantasy to grim neo-noir.
To describe the hunt for a vicious 3,000-pound boar as a hallucinatory exploration of man’s primal nature sounds like a bit more than a stretch, if not insanely ambitious. But director Jim Isaac’s PIG HUNT flaunts an array of twists and turns, resulting in a wildly surreal horror/actioner that delivers exactly that.
This Friday, DEVIL, the Dowdle Brothers follow-up to QUARANTINE and THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES, will be unleashed in theaters under M. Night Shyamalan’s Night Chronicles banner. While relatively little is known, the plot revolves around five strangers caught in an elevator, with one of them not exactly who they say they are. Actor Bokeem Woodbine (BLACK DYNAMITE, THE BREED, DEAD PRESIDENTS) essays one such stranger and spoke to Fango about the film, his role and why people just may be wrong about Shyamalan.
German art-house sensation Werner Herzog has long been linked to the horror genre, and not just because of his brilliant, moving and eerie 1979 remake of the landmark vampire film NOSFERATU. Rather, like Roman Polanski and David Lynch, Herzog’s work almost always veers into the darker recesses of the human mind, detailing with natural, beautiful observational aesthetics the conflicts between people and themselves and, perhaps even more profoundly, with the apathy of nature itself.
Last December, the producers of RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE granted FANGORIA exclusive access to the Toronto set of the fourth chapter in their action/horror franchise, derived from the best-selling Capcom video games. Fangoria.com has been presenting a series of one-on-one interviews with the movie’s cast and crew since July, which finally concludes today with the movie now in theaters from Screen Gems. Today we finish our talk with British-born (now Toronto-based) FX artist Paul Jones (see previous part here).
