  • “FORBIDDEN EMPIRE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Fantasy and myth are powerful things. Not only in how they can inspire the imagination, but in how they can cloud reason and judgment, and cause horrible events to occur in a cloud of superstition.  This wary view of mythology is the ironic driving force behind FORBIDDEN EMPIRE, a dark fantasy adventure film that delivers a new take on the Ukrainian folk story “Viy” from Russian author Nikolai Gogol.

  • Stream to Scream: “BLACK DEATH”

    ,,

    Horror is such a wide expanse of a genre. It can fit into a lot of time periods and situations and provide different levels of fear and repulsion. One concept that the horror genre has tackled time and time again is the fear of disease, either on the personal scale of one person’s body rotting away from a virus, or a pandemic that manages to ravage the whole of human civilization.  In these scenarios, what proves to be even scarier than the disease itself is the reaction that the fallible characters have to them. We all make bargains with ourselves and others to get what we want, and no one is more prone to desperate deal making than those willing to avoid death at all cost.

  • Night Vale Nightmares #5: [Best of?]

    ,,

    “The Sun is actually cold! It’s cold and empty, and all is lost! Greetings from Night Vale,” chimes a voice that is instantly recognizable as James Urbaniak, the VENTURE BROS. alum playing the part of senior Night Vale radio personality Leonard Burton as he dives us right into a clip show consisting entirely of clips we’ve never heard before. And as a result, we get a fascinating glimpse of Night Vale’s ancient and mysterious history. I do remember writing in the last review that I expected another interesting format tweak, and “[Best of?]” definitely lives up to those expectations.

  • Craven comes to TV for “PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS”, “WE ARE ALL COMPLETELY FINE” Series

    ,

    As we’ve said on this site before, horror is enjoying a full-blown renaissance on the small screen, particularly in the territories of basic and premium cable. THE WALKING DEAD, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, PENNY DREADFUL, BATES MOTEL, HANNIBAL, the list can (and most certainly will) go on, with new titles and spin-offs being announced on a near-daily basis. It only makes sense that some of the old school Masters of Horror would want to get in on the action, and FANGORIA has learned (via Variety) that the man who brought us Freddy and Ghostface himself, Wes Craven, has just made a deal to bring two new series to the Syfy network, one of which is based on his 1991 socially-conscious fright flick, THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS.

  • Dominic Cooper in final talks for Custer in AMC’s “PREACHER”

    ,

    The comic book adaptation bubble keeps growing and growing, with no signs of a pop in the immediate future. With the popularity of comic-based TV shows such as ARROW, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D, and the recent horror-tinged addition to the fold, iZOMBIE, making waves on the small screen, it only makes sense that AMC would be rolling the dice on another comic adaptation series, what with THE WALKING DEAD being the crown jewel in their cable empire.

  • Easter Goes to Hell with Chris Sato’s “BUNNY”

    ,

    Holiday-themed horror films are always fun; they appeal to both filmmakers and filmgoers for their ability to distort and subvert social and/or religious traditions and iconography. By now, most major American holidays have either one or various fright films dedicated to transgressing their sacred status: Christmas has SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, Valentine’s Day has MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and Halloween has that one movie… y’know, the one with the guy who’s got the mask and knife and he’s chasing the babysitter around… I can’t remember the name of it…
