  • 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…

    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.

    Charles Band unleashes Full Moon Streaming

    In the annals of horror and exploitation, few measure up to the storied Charles Band.

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.
