  • “THE TRIANGLE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to the POV/Found Footage-esque films, it’s safe to say that, for the most part, we’ve seen it all by now. Sure, squeezed in between a dozen or so awful entries, there can be a hidden gem and when said gem is found, it’s an experience, to say the least. The hard part comes in the brutal fact that as the market is flooded with countless knockoffs of what’s hot at the moment, finding those films which make you sit on the edge of your seat, enthralled, become harder to find. So was the case in the Adam Stilwell, Andrew Rizzo, Adam Pitman, David Blair and Nathaniel Peterson-helmed film THE TRIANGLE.

  • “PLANKFACE” (Film Review)

    ,

    As a young couple begin to fool around on the hood of their car, deep in the woods, we see a masked figure walk up, dragging an axe. While the murderer definitely succeeds in his mission of murder in the short scene, he’s wounded multiple times before stumbling off. Not too long after, Max and Stacey (I-ZOMBIE’s Nathan Barrett and FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS’ Ellie Church) are setting up for a nice weekend of camping when they’re attacked by a drifter who leaves Max injured and Stacey brutally raped. When Max awakes, mid-way through his girlfriend getting raped, something in him snaps, and not only does he exact revenge on the drifter, but does it by returning the favor with a knife…right before getting knocked unconscious.

  • “CELL” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    There’s something quite frightening about walking down the street and seeing the endless amount of zombies, all staring at their cell phones and these days, all glued to whichever devices help them catch the latest Pokémon. We live in such a technologically reliant society that for most of us (I’m guilty of this myself), we forget to stop and take in the scenery, pay attention to our loved ones and every other daily ritual which seems trivial when you have the most recent phone or tablet to run your life.

  • “CLOWN” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    A film whose humble beginnings stem from a trailer to a film that didn’t exist, the Jon Watts-helmed CLOWN is a testament to the power of imagination and persistence. Following HOSTEL/THE GREEN INFERNO director Eli Roth discovering the faux trailer and deciding to produce a real version, the film was shelved for a couple of years before finally making its debut this past week. With its recent Blu-ray release, we’ve been given a film that is not only entertaining but also one of the most impressive genre debuts in quite some time.

  • Q&A: Actor/Performer Mark Steger talks “STRANGER THINGS”, “HOLIDAYS”

    ,

    Tool. THE PACT. STRANGER THINGS. What (or who) connects these pieces of art? The answer is actor/performer/choreographer Mark Steger. Since 1989, Steger has worked his ass off playing interesting and terrifying monsters, among various other entities. When I visited the set of Nicholas McCarthy’s “Easter” segment from HOLIDAYS, I walked around the corner and there stood Steger in full, provocative creature make-up. To be honest, the guy scared the hell out of me.

  • Q&A: Lauren Ashley Carter on “THE MIND’S EYE”

    ,

    Just within the last few years, actress Lauren Ashley Carter has made quite the name for herself, as a performer whose interests are all across the board, choosing roles completely different from each other. Whether it’s the backwoods girl trying not to be the latest sacrifice in JUG FACE, a house caregiver who slowly loses her grasp on sanity in Mickey Keating’s exception film DARLING or a tele-kinetic woman with the ability to rip you to shreds in Joe Begos’ SCANNERS-esque homage to splatter films, THE MIND’S EYE, Carter has shown that she most definitely has the chops to be a very versatile actress. We had the opportunity to chat with Ashley regarding THE MIND’S EYE, her frequent collaborations with acto Brian Morvant, filmmaker Mickey Keating and her foray into directing. Check it out!

  • Q&A: “THE GREEN INFERNO” Actress Lorenza Izzo talks “HOLIDAYS”!

    ,

    This writer walked onto the set of HOLIDAYS and was instantly met with a view of an axe, a broken sink and more than a few gruesome objects that make up HOLIDAYS producer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer’s “New Year’s Eve” segment. Detailing quite possibly the worst New Year’s Eve date in history, Mortimer’s set is one that is contained, fun yet very passionately driven. In between takes, FANGORIA was lucky enough to sit down with “New Year’s Eve” star Lorenza Izzo and chat about everything from taking on the insane date from hell anthology entry, to her work with her husband, filmmaker Eli Roth. Yet, be warned: this interview does delve into spoiler territory, so for those looking to go into HOLIDAYS with a blank slate, go check out the film (on VOD now!) and then read our chat below!

  • Exclusive Pics, Q&A: Adam Egypt Mortimer’s “New Year’s Eve” Segment of “HOLIDAYS”!

    ,,

    Oh, sound stages. They’re always fun to see, as there’s a magical sense of playful imagination walking into one. Today’s set is that of an apartment bathroom, where actress Lorenza Izzo (THE GREEN INFERNO) is screaming, offering us a view of blood and gore. While the filmmakers behind STARRY EYES, AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR, TUSK, THE MIDNIGHT SWIM and more have chosen to tackle holidays like Easter and Halloween, it’s HOLIDAYS producer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer’s choice of New Year’s that FANGO was given an exclusive taste of earlier this summer. With everything from shattered sinks, body parts, and an overall splatter-like atmosphere, it’s apparent that SOME KIND OF HATE helmer Mortimer is ready to blow horror fans away once again, speaking to FANGORIA about what horror fans can expect from his wicked segment…

  • Set Report: Inside Nicholas McCarthy’s ‘Easter’ Segment of Eerie Anthology “HOLIDAYS”

    ,

    Known to create a foreboding and downright scary tone in his films, THE PACT and AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR director Nicholas McCarthy is doing something different today. He’s telling his lead actress to deal with Easter eggs and step in goo. McCarthy’s as calm as they get as a director, and during this particular set-up, he holds his hands up to his mouth, to prevent a devilsh giggle. McCarthy loves what he loves.

  • Q&A: Producer Jason Blum talks “OUIJA”, “PURGE 3”, “CURVE” & More…

    ,,

    In under a decade, Jason Blum went from producing a small indie-horror film called PARANORMAL ACTIVITY into building his own horror juggernaut. Under the Blumhouse moniker and a meticulous business model, horror fans have gotten franchises such as the mega-successful INSIDIOUS and THE PURGE films as well as SINISTER, OCULUS and many, many more. With no signs of slowing down, Blum and co. continued their winning streak with the ultra-successful OUIJA. With OUIJA now on DVD/Blu-ray, Blum was nice enough to chat with FANGORIA about the film, his approach to sequels and what’s next for his VOD distribution label, BH Tilt…

  • Report: “OUIJA” Release Event; Q&A with Ouija Expert Robert Murch

    ,

    Hollywood was last week’s setting for Universal and Thinkjam’s official release event for OUIJA, which hits DVD/Blu-ray today. And while most parties tend to stay within one location, L.A.’s horror circle filled Hollywood Boulevard in a pre-party scavenger hunt, which could only be described as “DEAD RIGHT HORROR TRIVIA meets the gym.” Four teams raced against not only each other, but also time, as our four color-coded teams were all given two sheets of questions, leading us all across Hollywood to find clues in the most hidden of places.
