  • Toronto! Get your horror soundtrack groove-on at “FEAR STREET”

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-02-25 15:59:39

    Nestled in the deep, dark, dangerous Toronto Dundas/Ossington strip is a grotty spot called Sex Laser. Yes…Sex Laser.

    “It’s just as sketchy as it sounds…” says Larissa Thomas, who hosts and DJ’s her bloody brainchild FEAR STREET, a weekly booze drenched, blood splattered dance party where the best in horror score grooves.
    Thomas is a well known figure in underground comics. She’s a writer, cartoonist and general pop culture powerhouse who has channeled her love of horror and weird music into this awesome night. Sex Laser is suitably greasy with comfy sofas, cheap drinks and a cash only bar. The perfect venue for some solid, fun, sleazy thrills.

    The event goes down every Wednesday 9:30 p.m.- 2 a.m. at Sex Laser (1369 Dundas St. W in the sexy/seedy west end).

    “THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS” #1 (Comic Review)

    by: Svetlana Fedotov on: 2013-02-19 21:09:01

    The ghost hunting shenanigans of the four paranormal
    detectives known as GHOSTBUSTERS perfectly melded humor and horror into an
    iconic film still popular today as it was almost 30 years ago. It’s little
    wonder, then that the Ghostbusters has had such a huge marketing appeal,
    ranging anywhere from toys to cartoons, and leaving a very permanent mark on
    the comic market. The franchise has spent years floating from company to company
    (even making a pit stop at Tokyopop for a manga do-over), but it has recently
    planted its feet with industry bad boy IDW. THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS picks up right
    where the IDW GHOSTBUSTERS left off, this time sending our boys in gray
    jumpsuits into a strange world possessed by the unknown.

    NBC teases “HANNIBAL,” the most notorious killer of them all

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-19 14:02:59

    NBC’s released a look at the delicate working relationship between agent Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter. It sure doesn’t look like the buddy cop antics we (I) were hoping. 

    From Bryan Fuller (PUSHING DAISIES, HEROES), HANNIBAL seeks to let us in on the procedural days of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he tracks down serial killers with the help of one. As the official synopsis would suggest (twice!) however, Will has little idea what he’s working with: When the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…

    I imagine many will tune in so as to see how the oddly beloved cannibal will translate here. With little affection for any of his incarnations, I imagine Mads Mikkelsen possesses some of the otherworldly, menacing sophistication necessary and will handle it just fine. But with the ever stretching boundaries of television and the fact that the undead regularly eat humans on AMC, will the doctor be dining on liver and the like regularly? April 4th, we find out.

    with a seriously ambitious project. Titled BLOOD AMONG THE STARS, Gambin and

    classic and influential 1976 impression of Stephen King’s first novel, CARRIE.

    work splattered all over our magazine for years, especially with his fantastic

    recently with features on William Katt and Pino Donaggio in our latest issue,
    our own love-letter to both De Palma and CARRIE, issue #321.

    What’s really exciting is the outrageous amount of in-depth
    interviews Gambin and Clark are amassing exclusively for this book, including a
    lengthy chat with Stephen King and almost every other living member of the key
    cast and crew.
