    On Thursday, October 10th  at 9pm, Toronto based film fest BLOOD IN THE SNOW opens its preview portal with a screening of a new, nightmarish indie shocker called simply THE BASEMENT, the not-so tender tale of a gaggle of pretty young things trapped in a cellar while someone – or thing – sinister upstairs knocks them off one by one.

    Horror From The BBC: “IN THE FLESH” and “THE SECRET OF CRICKLEY HALL” (TV Review)

    The ever-dependable English seem to always deliver quality when it comes to filmed drama—it’s in their blood, after all—and that goes for their unique, atmospheric brand of horror as well. We’ll save you the history lesson, but suffice to say that the British sensibility is so steeped in darkness, in grey, brooding, foreboding gloom and spectral skin chilling, that their genre product is almost always a cut above any other culture’s; two new small screen sculpted releases out October 8th from BBC Home Entertainment exemplify that plain truth.

  • GOREZONE Too Hot for Apple and Android!

    FANGORIA just learned that our recently revived GOREZONE—FANGO’s more sanguinary and saucy sister magazine—is too hot for Apple and Android! As with every FANGORIA magazine and special edition issue, we submitted GOREZONE #28, the sell-through only return of the mag after a 20-year sleep,  to our App store to be purchased for online consumption. Alas, it was rejected by the powers that be for being too explicit.

    “UNDER THE SKIN” (TIFF Movie Review)

    There is a scene in director Jonathan Glazer’s unsettling and unusual masterpiece BIRTH where his camera hugs actress Nicole Kidman’s face as tightly as possible. In that sequence, we study Kidman’s porcelain visage as she watches an opera. Not one word of dialogue distracts us from her eyes, her lips, her skin. The character is clearly processing an idea—that a mysterious child may be the reincarnation of her dead husband—and that idea slowly evolves into an epiphany resulting in a single tear streaming from her rapidly reddening eye. It is without a doubt the single most alarming example of an actor’s “inner voice” in effect this critic has ever seen, and a majestic moment of “pure cinema,” uncompromising in its ambiguity and reliance on sound and image to make magic.

    “OCULUS” (TIFF Movie Review)

    Mike Flanagan’s debut picture ABSENTIA was something truly special: a quiet, slow burning indie horror film that betrayed its budgetary cramps at every turn and used an existing location—in this case, a creepy suburban tunnel—and made it into something nightmarish. Slow zooms, quiet spaces, ambiguity and minimalist music all coupled with better than average performances and the result was a work of practical nickel and dime perfection. If you haven’t seen it, do so immediately and watch in the dark…

But outside of his role as morbid mechanic, Feldman is also the father of anti-hero DR. SHROUD, the online cult animated series and comic book character that has long been bubbling as a concept for a feature film.

    “ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE” (TIFF Movie Review)

    The first thing you must know about the film ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is that it is a vampire film. The second thing you need to know is that it is written and directed by arthouse auteur Jim Jarmusch. Therefore you can fairly easily and accurately assume that it is a vampire film like no other and your embrace of its charms will depend squarely on this revelation.

    “THE INVOKING” (aka “SADER RIDGE”; Movie Review)

    THE INVOKING (formerly SADER RIDGE) is a small film, but it’s a good film. A very, very good film. Unlike some contemporary indie horror cinema, writer/director Jeremy Berg isn’t concerned with bashing his audience over the noggin with stimulation or easy smut. Rather he hooks you, roasts you slowly and then, when you least expect it, sticks a very big fork in you. In other words, this is thoughtful, restrained and artfully rendered stuff that doesn’t treat its audience like, y’know, blubbering baboons.
