  • 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…

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.
