• EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Two


    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-17 23:43:27

    First lesson when casting acting newcomers in your new genre
    flick: surround them with acting pros like Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti and
    fright faves such as Clancy Brown (THE BRIDE, HIGHLANDER, upcoming
    HELLBENDERS), Doug Jones (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and the legendary Tall Man
    himself, Angus Scrimm. That’s what writer/director Don Coscarelli did with his
    latest movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.

  • Remembering Patty Shepard (1945-2013)


    by: Stephan Segantini on: 2013-01-16 03:04:01

    Fans of European horror have long been mesmerized by a pair of stunning, shining eyes which could simultaneously transmit mystery, seduction and a strength that were capable of charming anyone…even a werewolf. Last week we lost  those eyes, those that belonged to Patty Shepard, star of such films as the cult Paul Naschy flicks WEREWOLF VERSUS THE VAMPIRE WOMAN (a.k.a. NIGHT OF WALPURGIS, 1971) or in the (unfairly) despised Assignment Terror (1970).

    The long-shrouded-in-myth Hal Roach supernatural anthology TV show THE VEIL was produced in 1958, though not one of its 10 episodes actually aired, despite the presence of horror legend Boris Karloff as host and star. Long unseen, the series lapsed into the public domain, eventually appearing in a number of budget VHS and DVD releases over the years. Because of this, perhaps THE VEIL hasn’t received the respect it deserves. Shame as it’s an excellent, often very frightening bit of vintage horror television…

    With JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here), Oscar-nominated actor (and life-long fright fan!) Paul Giamatti knocks two off his bucket list with one shot: working with genre fave director Don Coscarelli
    and making his first bona fide horror film. FANGORIA’s editor emeritus Tony
    Timpone chatted with Giamatti about his cult flick, which he not only plays a
    key role in, but produced through his New York-based Touchy Feely shingle.
