    Blood in the Snow 2013: Zach Ramelan Talks Zombie Short, “DEAD RUSH”

    Premiering at Toronto-based and Fango and TIFF-approved Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival tomorrow as part of its short film program, is DEAD RUSH. Filmmaker Zach Ramelan’s breakneck first person zombie assault is a blood dripping bit of mayhem that is as much an exercise in terror as it is a textbook case how to get the biggest bang for your humble filmmaking buck. As the fest kicks into full gear tonight, FANGORIA pulled Ramelan aside to congratulate him and pick his still uneaten brain about making a monster movie that moves on a grocery bill budget.

    Toronto: Win Tix to See “MY FAIR ZOMBIE” at the Revue!

    If you like Rex Harrison musicals – and really, who the hell doesn’t? – and flesh-eating ghouls and have always dreamed of combining the two into one far-out flick, then Canadian filmmaker Brett Kelly’s toe-tapping, stomach churning romp MY FAIR ZOMBIE is for you.

    “CINEMA DETOURS” (Book Review)

    If I may graphically illustrate, I read Mike White’s CINEMA DETOURS in the bath. In the grind of my life, the sanctity of hot water and suds is the only place my eyeballs can peacefully absorb any written word not penned by myself or a Fango freelancer, and I value this time greatly. It’s sacred. I use the visual of yours truly nude and immersed in a tub because while digging into DETOURS, I stayed in till the bitter end, until the water was a tepid stew of body broth and I was as wrinkled as one of the LIFEFORCE cadavers. I finished the damn thing in one session. I couldn’t stop reading it. It’s that good.

    From the Editor: GOREZONE too hot for Canada!

    To our Canadian readers: It has come to our attention that our first triumphant issue of GOREZONE—#28, continuing the original run’s lineage—has been tardy in getting to our Canadian readers. In fact, in many cases, the magazine has yet to arrive up north at all. The reason? Apparently, GOREZONE is too much for the Mounties!

    Bolivia-Based Maverick Amy Hesketh Goes Indiegogo for Kinky Vampire Flick

    FANGORIA #323 saw us shine a light on a filmmaker named Amy Hesketh, an ex-Pat American who has become a sort of feminine Jess Franco in Bolivia, where she’s producing challenging, visceral, unflinching dark dramas and horror films (like the hypnotic BARBAZUL/BLUEBEARD, which just screened at the PollyGrind festival in Las Vegas) primarily for the Latin market, made in collusion with her partner, filmmaker/actor Jac Avila. Hesketh is so dedicated to her brand of art that she often literally puts herself in harm’s way to achieve the maximum psychosexual/visceral effect.
