    Creepy Cartoon “DR. SHROUD” goes Indiegogo for Live Action Series

    FANGORIA’s main webhead Robert Feldman quietly keeps Fango’s technical needs met, battling internet gremlins and ensuring that the machine runs with minimal mess. 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.

    “NOTHIN’ TO LOSE – THE MAKING OF KISS (1972-1975)” (Book Review)

    Last year, FANGORIA published the official KISS Monster Magazine (issue #1 is still available in our store here, while the 3D issue #2 is sold out) and it’s no secret that this writer/editor is obsessed with but two things: horror movies and yes, KISS. It was a fixation that locked in preschool, and it was seeing Gene Simmons with fangs, leather, metal and bat wings on the cover of 1977’s LOVE GUN that drew me to Dracula. After the swoon of discovering garish and bloody perversions of gothic horror ebbed, I later fell in love with KISS’ patented brand of trashy 70’s rock n’roll and it’s that adoration of Paul Stanley’s scream and Simmons’s stomping, spitting persona that I’ve carried with me and will keep close to my heart until I die, whenever that may be.

Father Albert produced many an Italian western and he directed the classic 1959 chiller I BURY THE LIVING, while brother Richard is a celebrated composer. Their roots in making and exhibiting genre entertainment run deep.

    Jess Franco’s “A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD” (Blu-ray Review)

    Those that dismiss the elephantine and obsessive filmography of the late cinema slinger Jess Franco would be wise to sit down and absorb what might be his greatest film of the 1970s, if not his storied career: CHRISTINA, PRINCESS OF EROTICISM or, as it’s more commonly referred to as–including on the sleeve of Repemption/Kino Lorber’s superlative Blu-ray release–A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD.

    “ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD” (Short Film Review)

    Plenty of short films are made every minute and many of them find their way to our mailbox.  Some are unwatchable, some are passable, some—the rare jewels—are fantastic. Navin Ramaswaran’s crackerjack micro-thriller ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD careens wildly into the fantastic arena, smashing against the world, destroying and bursting into a superlative display of bloody 4th of July fireworks. Yes indeed… this little flick is one of the good ones.

    Filmmaker Julian Grant has been making movies all over Canada and the U.S. relentlessly for over 20 years and just doesn’t get the recognition he should. From the riotous sex and spilled fluid Shannon Tweed shocker ELECTRA to the Canadian ROBOCOP TV series ROBOCOP: PRIME DIRECTIVES to his myriad sensational Lifetime channel potboilers, and all his ample esoteric projects in between, the man lives to make stuff to show other people. He’s also a professor at Columbia University in Chicago. He ain’t no slouch…
