    Review: Wes Anderson’s “THE MIDNIGHT COTERIE OF SINISTER INTRUDERS”

    From the mind of the notorious Wes Anderson (MOONRISE KINGDOM, THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX) comes an astonishing, mind-warping free-fall into horror so grueling, only the strongest of heart and mind need apply. THE MIDNIGHT COTERIE OF SINISTER INTRUDERS sports plenty of the eccentricity, obnoxious soundtrack violin string plucks and oddball asides that propel all of Anderson’s celebrated works and sports magnetic turns by the director’s oft used alumni like like Owen Wilson (who is unforgettable as befuddled father facing the ultimate evil), Tilda Swinton (in a shocking cameo that will leave you gasping) and Gwyneth Paltrow (who gives her best turn since her blistering performance in the cult classic karaoke chiller DUETS). Oh and Danny Glover proves he’s not too old for this shit with his stunning return to form appearance as…Danny Glover.

    THE FROZEN GROUND has a few things we at FANGORIA really dig. One is gruesome staged murders, and another is a ratcheting aura of dread. And the third is Nicolas Cage.

    “ON LOCATION IN BLAIRSTOWN: THE MAKING OF FRIDAY THE 13TH” (Book Review)

    Author David Grove is a FRIDAY THE 13th superfan who admits such with pride in the introduction to his latest effort, the hefty and illuminating ON LOCATION IN BLAIRSTOWN: THE MAKING OF FRIDAY THE 13th (available now from Author Mike/Dark Ink books). Grove has penned plenty of genre-oriented tomes in his day, including 2004’s well-received MAKING FRIDAY THE 13th: THE LEGEND OF CAMP BLOOD, and the existence of his latest poses the question as to how he could ever best the scope of that well-reviewed initial immersion into the Voorhees universe. the answer is that, instead of trying, Grove focuses here exclusively on producer/director Sean S. Cunningham’s first stab at the slasher franchise exclusively, and does so affectionately – yet objectively –  and even stops to muckrake a bit of choice gossip for those that care about such things.

    Toronto: Win Tix to see Claire Denis’ Violent Noir “BASTARDS” at TIFF Bell Lightbox

    The work of French director Claire Denis’ is haunting, challenging and more often than not, brutal. Her bizarre 2002 cannibalism romance TROUBLE EVERY DAY is a favorite of this writer, with its amped up carnal shock, gorgeous imagery and dreamy score by Tindersticks. Denis’ latest arthouse genre film, the unsettling BASTARDS, also employs the sounds of Tindersticks and is currently unspooling at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto as part of their Denis spotlight. And FANGORIA wants to send two lucky readers to see it…
