  • Stream to Scream: “LUMBERJACK MAN”

    ,,

    To be honest, this writer had no idea what he was getting into when tuning into LUMBERJACK MAN, one of the latest batch of After Dark’s 8 Films to Die For. However, by the time that the opening montage came to a close- in which two pancakes lead to a dissolve towards our protagonist’s breasts-, I knew that any chance for a traditional (read: serious) slasher film was out the window. Yet I had no idea just how much fun I’d be having with LUMBERJACK MAN, a film that’s equal part hysterical send-up and loving homage to the slasher movie mold.

  • SXSW Chiller “PET” Uncages First Clip

    ,

    UPDATE/CORRECTION: On the August 22nd Edition of BLOOD LUST, producer Brian Yuzna told FANGO:

    “I’m a part of a Spanish Company called Magic Lantern and we’re producing a project called PET, directed by Carles Torrens and starring Dominic Monaghan, Ksenia Solo, Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Parsons. It’s about a guy who works at an animal rescue in L.A., and he takes on a girl as a pet. Of course, things turn bad. That’s something to look out for.”

    We are now being told by the film’s publicists that, despite Magic Lantern still having credit on the film, Brian Yuzna was not involved in the production and are kindly asking for us to make corrections reflecting that request. We are including Yuzna’s quote for context and are updating the article as such.

  • “DAMIEN: Season 1, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to the pilot for DAMIEN, there is some good news and there is some not-so-good news. In terms of the former, DAMIEN is setting the stage for a horror series that’s not only blood and respectful to the original OMEN film, but also may be set the biggest scale for a horror series to date. Yet in terms of the latter, with the pilot laying ground and catching up unfamiliar viewers to THE OMEN mythology, the series doesn’t quite get the opportunity to establish its own identity in its inaugural outing.

  • Body Horror Flick “BITE” Acquired By Scream Factory; Screening & Release Info!

    ,

    For those keeping their eerie eyes on the new wave of Canadian Indie Horror over the past few years, the name Chad Archibald should be quite familiar.

And now, after playing the likes of Mile High Horror, Fantasia and Sitges last year, Archibald’s film has finally found a home with Scream Factory, who add BITE to their impressive roster of original releases.

  • “THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR” (Film Review)

    ,,

    In the film’s favor, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR isn’t the trainwreck most people expect to see from the studio system nowadays, nor is it anything exceptional as well. Simply put, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR is a fairly unremarkable exercise in horror cinema, managing to be both generic and effective simultaneously. And while the film wears its influences on its sleeve- in fact, similarities to PET SEMATARY are uncanny at times-, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR rehashes and repurposes notable genre tactics because they’re known to work, and in that case, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR is creepy, if not truly original in nature.

  • “THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ” (Film Review)

    ,,

    If you’re going to be tackling a movie about necrophilia, there’s a good chance that it’s likely going to be a polarizing experience. However, as fate would have it, necrophilia is simply the beginning of the wicked path shown in THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ, an exercise in tension that will grip the audience from start to finish. Yet if there’s anything that’s truly shocking about THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ, it’s how well director Hector Hernandez Vicens makes conventional story beats seem so unconventional via the use of misdirection that would put a magician to shame.

  • Found Footage… FOR REAL: Studio ADI’s Amazing Practical Work on “THE THING” (2011)

    ,,

    One of the reasons that horror hounds have become so apprehensive towards remakes is the idea that the genre’s history is being rewritten for a new generation. While this is often an irrational line of thought, as the original films never go away and often see a deluxe reissue as a result, the resentment is often built off of legitimate concerns: more often than not, contemporary remakes don’t quite reach the heights of their predecessors and resort of lazier filmmaking techniques. In fact, most horror fans are more worried about new fans becoming accustomed to a remake with CGI and frustrating plot retreads than the original films themselves, and this is why fans often cry out for remakes to go the extra mile to prove their worth.

  • FANGO Flashback: “WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK”

    ,,

    For whatever reason, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS always seems to be given an underwhelming reception by fright fans, many of whom understand its legacy but perhaps haven’t seen it or misled by the fact that it never became as “essential” as other horror offerings of its era. Nevertheless, the film is incredibly intense, creepy as hell and impeccably acted, and the film’s leap from claustrophobic horror film to brooding thriller following the first act is a ballsy move that’s worth celebrating, especially in this day and age. However, as guilty as some may be with their ignorance towards the first film, this writer must admit that the same caution was taken personally with the film’s 15-year-late sequel, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK.

  • “WAYWARD PINES” Season 2 Cast Confirmed; Premiere Date Announced

    ,

    Ushering in what turned out to be a big comeback for filmmaker M. Night Shymalan, WAYWARD PINES was a truly creepy event series, complete with eerie paranoia, incredible practical creatures and a damn fine cast to boot. However, thanks to the series’ massive success, the one-and-done model originally envisioned for the tale has been eschewed, as Fox announced soon afterwards that WAYWARD PINES would return for a second season. Now, Deadline has reported that WAYWARD PINES’ second season has secured its ensemble cast as well as a premiere date that is shockingly sooner than anyone could have predicted.
