    KISS Co-founders Simmons and Stanley Remember Gordon Hessler

    Legendary genre journeyman director Gordon Hessler (pictured above with Ray Harryhausen) has passed at the age of 83. Hessler, a German born, British-blooded and educated, Hollywood-based filmmaker, is most notable to FANGORIA readers for his interesting post-Roger Corman work for American International Pictures, with the failed new “Poe Cycle” kick-starters THE OBLONG BOX (with Christopher Lee and Vincent Price), MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE (with Jason Robards and Herbert Lom) and the Poe flavored Vincent Price classic CRY OF THE BANSHEE, not to mention the utterly mad horror all-star opus SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN starring Price, Lee and Peter Cushing.

    The Year in Horror, 2013: Chris Alexander’s Top Films

    One of the pleasures of loving horror cinema is defining exactly what a horror movie is. Let’s face it, many of our most beloved morbid masterpieces were not considered horror films by their helmers, the very word “horror” deemed to be a grotty ghetto bottom feeder genre by many. To me, horror is that swelling feeling of dread and terror. It’s the sadness of death, the misery of shocking violent death, the anxiety about the “other”—whether an external, or internal, threat—and often, just the sheer phantasmagorical punch of seeing things that do not, and cannot exist, in the natural world suddenly run rampant before our eyes.

    “HERE COMES THE DEVIL” (Movie Review)

    The ultimate terror for any, even half-decent, parent is the unthinkable—yet perfectly feasible—concept of losing their child. That primal fear is even more profound in a mother, she who miraculously grows this tiny person inside her and whose connection to her charge is one of the most powerful bonds known.

    TV TERRORS Double Feature: “THE INITIATION OF SARAH” & “ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE?” (DVD Review)

    I don’t think it’s necessarily true that in order to fully appreciate the charms of the 1970’s TV horror movie, you had to in fact come of age during the 1970’s, but there’s no doubt it helps. This writer was birthed in 1974 and was exposed to such fare as far back as I’d had a memory. And of course, by the time I was completely cognoscente of pop culture in the dawn of the 1980’s, most of the vintage made-for-television terror shows would be re-run ad nauseum in both prime time and – even better – late, late at night or in the wee hours of the AM. They were everywhere and, although pedestrian when stacked up against their theatrical counterparts, there was a certain je ne sais quoi that gave them a kind of power.
