    ,

    In the past several years, television has seen many different scary subjects tackled on various horror shows, whether it be zombies, classic horror mythology, slasher movies, cannibals or vampires.

  • Q&A: Director Micheal Bafaro talks “WRECKER”

    ,

    While the logistics of road horror can sometimes seem like a hassle, it’s actually very surprising that more road horror movies don’t get made. With the intimacy of a character piece, a proven track record at the box office and a formidable villain that’s universally imposing, road horror isn’t even much more expensive than the one/two-location microbudget films coming out of the indie scene. Luckily, when road horror does come out nowadays, it’s usually worth your while, such as in the case of Micheal Bafaro’s recently ravager WRECKER. Bafaro recently spoke to FANGORIA about WRECKER, the film’s underlying message and what’s next for the horror helmer…

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horror Films Worth Hunting Down

    ,,

    With so many streaming services and digital video on-demand services out there nowadays, it’s no surprise that genre fans have more options to watch whatever they want than ever before. While this may be a normalcy for those growing up in the digital age, many of us who grew up with video stores or, hell, even the disc-delivery days of Netflix remember the difficulty- and in many cases, the thrill- of hunting down obscure genre films. Luckily, as much as there is that’s now widely available, there are still some horror gems that escape being found too easily, and so FANGORIA has dedicated this week’s Dreadful Ten to a collection of horror films worth the time and effort to track down.

  • NYC Horror Film Festival Review: “III”

    ,,

    Right from the get-go, Pavel Khvaleev’s III is a film uninterested in presenting a straightforward narrative, instead opting for a gothic, surreal puzzle that blends fantasy and reality with a mind towards the bigger picture. In fact, as a whole, III is the kind of film that makes bold choices in almost every regard: plot points, cinematography, FX and subject matter all present something a bit more in the vein of risky, stark art house fare as opposed to what genre fans may expect. And while there is something refreshing about that attitude, especially considering how gorgeous the film’s fantastical elements can be thanks to these gambles, there is also an overall lack of life in the quixotic, polarizing narrative of III.

  • Event Report: King Diamond, Live in New York City!

    ,

    It was a dark, wet night on Thursday, November 19th, when this writer ventured out to see the one and only King Diamond on his first of three nights playing at the Playstation Theater in New York City. To be honest, the notice was a bit of a surprise: Diamond’s original Friday/Saturday gig sold out very quickly, and when a third show was promptly added, this writer knew he wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to see the Danish rock icon live in concert. Yet the road to seeing King Diamond was not as easy as one might imagine: following high temperatures throughout November, heavy rainfall hit on the 19th, backing up traffic tremendously and making the journey from the PATH exit on 34th Street to the Playstation Theater on 44th street one that would leave this writer soaking wet.

  • Sundance 2016 Midnight Line-Up Announced!

    ,

    While the festival hasn’t always been friendly to the horror genre, especially through its formative years, Sundance has grown more accepting of scare fare in recent times, branding a horror-centric Midnight line-up that has now become standard with all “legitimate” film festivals such. Luckily, Sundance has also carried it’s notoriously high standards among its Midnight choices as well, often bringing about the most lauded- or at least polarizing- films in the horror world, including the V/H/S series and the upcoming A24 release, THE WITCH. Now, Sundance 2016 has laid its claim to the first 9 films of their midnight line-up, which features some heavy-hitters indeed and all of which are world premieres.

  • New York City Horror Film Festival: Short Film Round-Up!

    ,

    Now in its 14th year, as well the first in its new venue of Times Scare, the NYC Horror Film Festival unleashed some scary and solid fright fare among their feature programming, including DEAD BODY and LAST GIRL STANDING among others. However, for many horror fans, one of the highlights of any film festival are the scary surprises among the shorts programming, and to their credit, NYCHFF has put together a truly terrific assembly of bite-sized nightmares. And while this writer couldn’t catch every last short film on the docket, there was more than enough spine-tingling shorts to write home about.

  • “TROLL” / “TROLL 2” Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to the various scare fare fright fans subject themselves on a regular basis, there are only about three different categories these films can fall into. The first would be “good”, which would describe well-crafted, entertaining stories that can be a masterpiece at its best or, at the very least, fairly decent. The second would be “bad”, as in poorly-written and clumsily executed that can range from dull, lifeless dreck to the promising yet criminally flawed. The last would likely be “the weird”, comprised of the fantastical, bonkers, illogical, surreal or off-beat which is objectively not for everyone but could subjectively be some viewer’s favorite films. And it’s firmly in the latter category that Scream Factory’s Blu-ray double feature of TROLL and TROLL 2 exist, offering two movies that, while not necessarily the cream of the crop, are far too insane and imaginative to disregard.

  • “LAST GIRL STANDING” (NYC Horror Film Fest Review)

    ,,

    As clever and exciting as the SCREAM franchise has been over the years, one of the franchise’s implicit flaws was never quite looking at Sidney Prescott’s psychological ramifications following each surpassing incident. In fact, very few horror franchises have addressed the trauma of surviving a “horror movie” scenario, and the few that have rarely do so in a realistic manner. And it’s exactly that realism that Benjamin R. Moody’s LAST GIRL STANDING attempts to ground itself in, investigating the “final girl” archetype through a post-modern lense that offers one of the most engrossing subversions on the genre in quite some time.
