  • 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.

  • Eli Roth Out, “NATIONAL TREASURE” Director In for “MEG” Adaptation

    ,

    Although Eli Roth had spent a good length of 2015 attached to an adaptation of Steve Alten’s prehistoric shark novel MEG, there was a healthy skepticism as to whether the blockbuster-averse filmmaker would see the project to production. Alas, Deadline has dropped an exclusive report today that not only has Roth bowed out of the director’s chair for MEG, but Warner Brothers & Chinese financier Gravity are moving ahead with NATIONAL TREASURE filmmaker Jon Turteltaub as his potential replacement.

  • “THE BOY” (2015) (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    It’s always going to be frustrating to discuss the legacy of Craig Macneill’s THE BOY, not to be confused with the William Brent Bell film that hit theaters mere months after its release. And even more frustrating than sharing a title with a major studio horror film is the fact that the Spectrevision production is a legitimately fantastic bit of slow-burn, dread-inducing horror, earning both Chainsaw Award nominations and a spot on several Top 10 lists last year. So luckily, THE BOY will get a chance to get in front of more fright fans with its brand new Blu-ray release, courtesy of Scream Factory.

  • Astron-6, Guy Maddin & Rachel Talalay Teaming For Web Series “DIVORCED DAD”

    ,

    One of the things I absolutely love about today’s media landscape is that, in an age where spoilers and scoops dominate our short-term attention spans, surprises can still be produced in relative secret and absolutely floor the horror audience. Today, that surprise is DIVORCED DAD, which could be mistaken for a public-access parody show if not for the fact that it’s orchestrated by Astron-6 (FATHER’S DAY, THE EDITOR), Guy Maddin (TALES FROM THE GIMLI HOSPITAL) and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise producer/director Rachel Talalay. And with a teaser that gleefully goes into bloody horror territory and Astron-6’s brand of absurd surrealism, one can say that DIVORCED DAD might be the web series to watch for fright fans in 2016.

  • Scream Factory Reignites Victor Salva Arguments With “JEEPERS CREEPERS” Blu-ray Announcement

    ,

    It’s no secret that FANGORIA has long been a fan of the work that Scream Factory has been putting out. While the company has their missteps once in a while, Scream Factory is fighting an uphill battle to keep physical media alive and give the collector’s market not only great Blu-ray releases, but even cuts of films never previously available. And as long as the Blu-ray marketplace has a pulse, there’s a great chance that FANGORIA will be championing any deserving title coming out of the boutique video label.
