    Stanley Film Festival ’15: An Exclusive Q&A with SFF Programmer Landon Zakheim, Part Three

    As horror fans from around the globe know, there’s no horror-centric festival that has risen to prominence as quickly and loudly as the Stanley Film Festival. Taking place at the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, the festival became one of the most buzzed about experiences for horror fans in recent times, adding a level of interactivity and immersion on top of a diverse and terrifying film slate. And since FANGORIA will be taking Stanley by storm this upcoming April, we recently chatted with Director of Programming Landon Zakheim in a massive, three-part dialogue about the one-of-a-kind haunted hotel and the only film festival that takes the horror beyond the big screen…

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 3″ (TV Review)

    With the third episode in the second season of SALEM, the narrative of the series is now running full steam ahead, with character development jumping leaps and bounds in directions we may not have necessarily expected. Such boldness is nothing new for the horror series, which often revels in unpredictability and misdirection, but rarely does a TV series add subversion on so many layers as the show begins to mix it’s trademark brand of edgy melodrama with in-story politics. And while those dynamics definitely make this episode, entitled “From Within,” a less action-packed affair than the previous two episodes, it certainly is equally as compelling.

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 6″ (TV Review)

    With the track record from the first and second season of BATES MOTEL, there was an aura of cautious optimism when this writer decided to cover the third season. But luckily, that faith has payed off in a big way, as BATES’ sixth episode this season is a full-on home run for the series, and introduced a milestone into the show’s familiar lore. And as Norman and Norma drifted apart further than ever before, Norman and “Mother” finally came together, and it offered one of the most surreal and satisfying scenes in the series’ history.

    “THE WALKING DECEASED” Actor Dave Sheridan Wants To Know: Have You Seen This Zombie?

    Fans of horror comedy should be familiar with SCARY MOVIE and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS star Dave Sheridan, who was most recently seen in the zombie culture parody THE WALKING DECEASED (check FANGO’s review here.) As such, Sheridan has found himself going deeper and deeper into the world of horror, hitting the convention scene while gearing up for his directorial debut in the genre. And while THE WALKING DECEASED let Sheridan lay some hurt on the undead, one zombie in particular was able to get some payback, according to a video recently released by Sheridan from his appearance at Dallas’ Walker Stalker convention. Take a look below…

    “CARRIE” (2002) / “THE RAGE: CARRIE 2″ (Blu-ray Review)

    There’s no doubting that Brian De Palma’s CARRIE, the 1976 inaugural adaptation of Stephen King, is a classic of the horror genre. It’s classy, unsettling and genuinely scary, compounded with De Palma’s stylish vision and King’s distinct narrative voice. Yet in the years since, the various attempts to remake and recapture that eerie essence has proven difficult, and there’s no better example of that than the CARRIE TV-remake as well as Katt Shea’s THE RAGE: CARRIE 2. And with Scream Factory’s double feature Blu-ray, CARRIE completists can finally have these misbegotten fright flicks in high definition.

    “THE BABADOOK” (Blu-ray Review)

    To some, including this writer, THE BABADOOK was one of the genuine masterpieces of macabre cinema last year, providing a near perfect balance of psychological horror and creature feature. To others, THE BABADOOK was a victim of a loudly whirring hype machine, offering a horror tale whose straightforward scares were disappointing to a fault. In that way, THE BABADOOK has posited itself as a film that there’s very little middle ground towards, and with the film now on Blu-ray from Scream Factory, the rest of the world at large will get a chance to experience THE BABADOOK for themselves, as well as get an insight on how THE BABADOOK came to be.

    Q&A: Actress Ashley Hinshaw on “THE PYRAMID” and “TRUE DETECTIVE”

    When you hear a title like THE PYRAMID, any horror fans mind will go to the usual suspects: mummies, scarabs and all sorts of ancient Egyptian curses. However, horror fans who checked out last fall’s THE PYRAMID were surprised by a whole different kind of horror, with an experience made even more visceral by a handful of strong performances. Among these performances was Ashley Hinshaw, who adds an emotional dimension and physical commitment to a role that in the hands of others could have been merely another screaming victim-to-be. FANGORIA recently caught up with Hinshaw and talking THE PYRAMID, her horror fandom and her participation in TRUE DETECTIVE’s second season…

    Event Report: “MADMAN” Q&A at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    When it comes to revival screenings, there’s no place quite like the Alamo. Whether it be classics, cult classics or any and every oddity in between, the spirit of the Drafthouse experience brings together a unique and energetic audience like no other cinema can. So when the opportunity rose for this writer to host Vinegar Syndrome’s screening of the 1982 slasher classic MADMAN, complete with a Q&A with the cast and crew of the film, I immediately accepted and prepared myself for what would undoubtedly be one hell of a time.
