    Q&A: Dana Melanie talks “TREEHOUSE”

    With the world of independent horror, it’s a refreshing surprise when a filmmaker approaches the backwoods horror formula with a focus on suspense as opposed to gore and brutality. Not only can critics tell the difference between a genuinely intense horror film in that ilk, but also the talent and fright fans. Luckily for TREEHOUSE, their leading lady, Dana Melanie, is a fright fan herself, and in a chat with FANGORIA, she talks TREEHOUSE, inspiration and working with ZOMBIE DIARIES director Michael Bartlett…

    New Trailer: M. Night Shymalan’s Event Series, “WAYWARD PINES”

    With a title like WAYWARD PINES and a suspiciously similar synopsis, M. Night Shymalan’s upcoming event series for FOX had drawn many preliminary comparisons to David Lynch’s TWIN PEAKS. However, one might not expect how much the show appears to lean towards the side of horror, and in this first trailer, WAYWARD PINES appears to be less PEAKS and more close to a contemporary genre take on THE PRISONER.

    Q&A: “WYRMWOOD” Director Kiah Roache-Turner on Zombies, Remakes and the “ROAD OF THE DEAD”

    With the continued complaints about the excess of post-WALKING DEAD zombie media, one of the biggest breaths of fresh air was WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD, a frenetic and captivating tale of post-apocalyptic anarchy with a near-perfect balance of humor and horror. Evoking as many gasps as it did laughs, WYRMWOOD marks another genre gem for the excellent IFC Midnight as well as the introduction of a fright filmmaker to watch in Australian director Kiah Roache-Turner. FANGORIA recently caught up with Roache-Turner, who spoke about zombie origins, the various versions of WYRMWOOD and the idea of bringing the ROAD OF THE DEAD to the U.S….

    Neill Blomkamp to Direct Next “ALIEN” Sequel, “PROMETHEUS 2″ to Follow

    So, if you’re an ALIEN fan, you probably remember STARLOG‘s report earlier this year when DISTRICT 9 director Neill Blomkamp blew everyone’s minds with a bunch of seemingly independently produced ALIEN concept art and sculpts. The art promised a ton of incredibly cool and intriguing concepts, including the impossible return of Corporal Hicks, Ripley in a bio-mechanic Xenomorph suit and a Queen Alien let loose in what appeared to be a manmade environment. Yet in showing the art, Blomkamp did so with a defeated indifference, crushing the hopes that fans might see these concepts come to fruition… until now.

    Women in Horror Month: Gale Anne Hurd, the Harbinger of Mainstream Horror

    While February is primarily considered to the Black History Month, genre fans have also adopted the month for another cause: Women in Horror Month, recognizing and celebrating the often underappreciated women who help make the genre what it is today. While by no means demeaning the work of men within the genre, Women in Horror Month asks horror fans to turn their eyes beyond just the scream queens and final girls, but rather to the hard-working women who struggle to make great work specifically for the genre they love. Therefore, FANGORIA is celebrating Women in Horror Month by shining a light on some of the most instrumental women to the development of horror as we know it…

    For Your Consideration: The 2015 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Actor!

    With the Chainsaw Award voting still in session, FANGORIA believes that every nominee deserves a fair shot at the award in question. Yet when it comes to performances, the objective nature of cinema really takes a hold of the voter: fans of one kind of particular horror may disregard a contender altogether if they believe their project to be not their “type of horror.” Nevertheless, FANGORIA wants to shine a light on these nominees to give voters a better understanding of what makes their performances stand out within the genre this year.

    Acclaimed Found Footage Horror “HOOKED UP” Finds Release Date, Red Band Trailer

    Fans of last year’s Mile High Horror Film Festival were able to check out some of the most buzzed about 2014 horror titles, including VHS: VIRAL, HOUSEBOUND, DEAD SNOW 2 and many more. Yet one film that unfortunately fell under the radars of most fright fans was Pablo Larcuen’s HOOKED UP, the found-footage creeper from producer (and ORPHAN filmmaker) Jaume Collet-Serra. Luckily, horror hounds will get their chance to see HOOKED UP sooner rather than later, as the film was picked up by Uncork’d Entertainment and has dropped it’s official first red-band trailer.

    “ANIMAL” (Blu-ray Review)

    Considering the standard that most networks have held their “made for TV” movies, Chiller’s original genre films have been surprisingly consistent. With entries such as 2013’s THE MONKEY’S PAW and BENEATH having previously impressed this writer in both solid writing and effective practical SFX, expectations were high for Brett Simmons’ creature feature ANIMAL, despite having not caught it on initial airing. Luckily, Scream Factory has once again partnered with Chiller to bring ANIMAL to Blu-ray, offering the frightening pick-‘em-off flick in stunning high-definition.
