  • Q&A: Producer Richard Turner talks “GNAW”!

    ,

    As both horror fans and filmmakers can tell you, Colorado has a genre film culture unlike anywhere else as of late. Home to the Stanley Film Festival, the Mile High Horror Film Festival, the Telluride Horror Show and recently, the shooting location for Quentin Tarantino’s bloody western thriller THE HATEFUL EIGHT, Colorado truly has fright fare running through its veins, and it’ll continue that tradition into GNAW, the new film from Unreal Media and Wrecking Ball Pictures. With AN AMERICAN TERROR’s Haylar Garcia at the helm, the film offers up a solid cast that includes Sally Kirkland (TWO EVIL EYES), Kyle Gass (TENACIOUS D), Chris Johnson (CURSED) and Penelope Mitchell (HEMLOCK GROVE). With the film now in production, FANGORIA caught up with Unreal Media’s Richard Turner to talk any and everything GNAW…

  • Exclusive Announcement, Q&A: Joe Hill, IDW Publishing team for “TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE” Scriptbook!

    ,,,

    As many frustrated horrorheads can tell you, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE has never quite gotten the respect that it deserves. So when it was announced in 2013 that the property, with four excellent seasons and a beyond-excellent anthology film to its name, was going to get a reboot from the likes of Joe Hill, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, fright fans were understandably elated. Alas, despite a buzzworthy pilot, the series never quite came to fruition, but with an ultimately exciting silver lining, as Hill and his LOCKE AND KEY cohorts Gabriel Rodriguez and Chris Ryall would adapt his TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE stories into comic books via IDW Publishing.

And it’s with that same love and familiarity that Bushwick, NY’s Cultural Compulsive Disorder is teaming with Dromedary Bar (266 Irving Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237) for a FRIDAY THE 13TH celebration unlike any other, complete with FRIDAY THE 13TH themed cocktails, art gallery exhibits and a marathon screening of the first four FRIDAY THE 13TH films!

  • 7th Annual GWAR-B-Q Announces 2016 Line-Up!

    ,

    When it comes to the bloody crossover between heavy metal and horror, few can compete with the mighty, macabre GWAR.

However, for fans of GWAR, nothing beats their annual GWAR-B-Q event, where the gruesome group assembles an all-day music festival featuring the top talents in their genre, complete with vendors, barbecue and an over-the-top headline performance from GWAR themselves.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD” (1990)

    ,,

    As surprising as it may sound, George A. Romero has a fairly impressive number of solid remakes to his filmography; while a stinker like 2008’s DAY OF THE DEAD may attempt to spoil the bunch, remakes of THE CRAZIES, DAWN OF THE DEAD and, of course, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD have done well by their predecessor. In the case of the latter, the film at least knew it had the original director’s seal of approval, with longtime collaborator Tom Savini behind the camera and Romero himself producing. But even in a time before the “remake” stigma of the mid-to-late-’00s, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990) does a fairly great job of honoring the original film while ultimately offering a different approach, one that underplays some of the social commentary of the ‘68 film while modernizing the story for more demanding contemporary audiences.

  • “LOCKE AND KEY” Lives Again on TV With Second Pilot Order!

    ,,

    For fans of Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez’s LOCKE AND KEY, the page-to-screen process of the critically and commercially successful comic book has been a horror story in-and-of itself. Following the Mark Romanek-directed pilot, which was not picked up by FOX despite a head-turning screening at San Diego Comic Con in 2011, fans eagerly hoped that the property would eventually make its way to the big screen or- at the very least- be given a second chance in the evolving TV landscape. Now it seems their prayers have been answered, as IDW Entertainment has announced that a second pilot has been commissioned, with the series being developed independently with Circle of Confusion, the production entity behind AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Awesome ’90s Horror Films!

    ,,

    As someone who grew up watching the many horror films of the ’90s, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear the decade get so much flack for its contributions to the genre. Sure, the ’80s are a tough act to follow, considering how many phenomenal, practical FX-driven fright films were spawned during that time, but the ’90s has had its fair share of awesome scare fare, most of which are miles more memorable that the decades that have come since. Even the guilty pleasures of the ’90s- your DEEP BLUE SEAs and ANACONDAs and what-have-you- are much easier to defend than some of the stinkers of the ’80s! So with that on our macabre mind, FANGORIA has decided to list off ten absolutely awesome ’90s horror offerings for your creepy consideration!
