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

    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…

    Video Q&A: Shane West and Ashley Madekwe talk “SALEM” Season Two!

    For fans of wicked witches, they don’t get much more wicked than on WGN America’s SALEM. And with the second season looking to push more boundaries and to go into even darker places, FANGORIA was lucky enough to get the full SALEM experience earlier this month and sit down with the cast and crew of the serialized scare fare, including stars Shane West and Ashley Madekwe!

    “TWIN PEAKS” 2016 Revival in Doubt?

    For this writer, the announcement that Showtime would be bringing back TWIN PEAKS last year was nothing short of a dream come true, if only for the idea that Lynch would return to the director’s chair (for nine hours of content), let alone to bring back one of the genre’s most beloved properties. Yet since the announcement, the updates have been few and far between: Kyle MacLachlan’s return was all but assured, and the return of Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook was expected as well. Yet, on Friday, some rather off-putting news dropped from reliable fan site Welcome to Twin Peaks regarding the show’s return… or possible lack thereof.

    “THE RETURNED: Season 1, Episode 1″ (TV Review)

    Considering the acclaimed French series from which it is based on, A&E’s THE RETURNED always has had a critical and commercial hurdle to jump. After all, the original series has taken on new life via instant streaming services and is beloved among both fans of horror and drama. And among many contemporary viewers, the chance that the show would stick too slavishly to its source material seemed unappealing in its own right. Yet even though the show has been sticking to it’s French inspiration , the performances on display are strong enough to uncover potential in the future of the series.

    Report: FANGORIA’s Visit to the Set of WGN America’s “SALEM”

    Going to Louisiana last weekend was not necessarily something I planned. In fact, last weekend in my New Jersey locale, I’d been planning on staying inside and avoiding the ridiculously cold weather and abhorrent snowstorms plaguing the area last week. Yet, when opportunity knocks in the form of a last minute set visit in anywhere but Jersey, I was more than willing to jump on the next plane out of town.

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 1″ (TV Review)

    To this writer, there’s a certain satisfaction in knowing the direction that BATES MOTEL will eventually go, and the, dare we say, change in Norman’s voice that’s been teased in A&E’s previews for season three. But, BATES MOTEL still has to get there, and  I have to give A&E credit in that the first episode of the third season is much better written than most of season two, especially in terms of the oh-so-uncomfortable approach to Norman and Norma’s familial relationship. And with strong writing comes strong performances, and luckily, strong direction, which all makes “A Death in the Family” a solid lead in with a promise of something much creepier.

    “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE” (1962) (UK Blu-ray Review)

    Now, I’ll be up front: THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE is not a horror movie. However, the 1962 John Frankenheimer film is as close as a political thriller could be to being a horror film and a believable drama, carrying elements that are familiar to genre fans, including PSYCHO, THE DEAD ZONE and ROSEMARY’S BABY. And it also has the benefit of being genuinely scary at points, and thanks to a befitting Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video, the time is ripe for revisiting this intense and unnerving classic.

    Q&A: “WOLFCOP” himself Leo Fafard Speaks!

    With the amount of campy throwbacks hitting the market recently, those films are only as effective as those filling the shoes of their main attraction. This is especially true for WOLFCOP, a film in which the human aspect has to be as endearing and fun enough to keep the audience engaged until we get to the more monstrous action. Luckily, that film has Canadian actor Leo Fafard filling the role of the beastly constable, delivering a committed and frequently hilarious performance both in and out of make-up. FANGORIA recently caught up with Fafard about his inaugural leading role as well as keeping his humanity as the WOLFCOP…
