    From TALES FROM THE CRYPT to MASTERS OF HORROR, there are few filmmakers who can deliver an anthology story as effectively as writer/director Tom Holland. From FRIGHT NIGHT to CHILD’S PLAY, Holland is a versatile voice within the horror genre, bringing his trademark dark sense of humor and his penchant for practical effects to his many directorial efforts. And with his latest project, FEARNET anthology web series TWISTED TALES (on DVD now from Image Entertainment) Holland works outside of the constraints of time limits and content restriction to bring his clever and chilling work to a new generation of horror fans. Holland spoke to FANGORIA about his latest TWISTED TALES and updates on his long-brooding adaptation of Stephen King’s THE TEN O’CLOCK PEOPLE…

    Fango Flashback: “STARSHIP TROOPERS” (1997)

    Following TOTAL RECALL, Paul Verhoeven’s career explored a strange and unexpected path, as the director experienced his greatest financial success back to back with his most marring critical and financial failure. In the wake of the latter, Verhoeven went returned to genre territory, optioning a script from his ROBOCOP collaborator Ed Neumeier entitled BUG HUNT AT OUTPOST 9 and refashioning it with elements from Robert Heinlein’s STARSHIP TROOPERS. A loose adaptation at best, Verhoeven saw the potential in another science-fiction satire and pursued it head-on, now with cutting-edge digital FX, an estimated budget of $105 million and a repertoire of both new and old collaborators at his disposal.

    Want More Hammer on Blu? Sign this Petition and Be Heard!

    Hammer Film Productions has had immense influence on the genre, resurrecting Gothic monsters from their black and white beginnings and populating their films with acting greats such as Peter Cushing, Oliver Reed, Barbara Shelley and Christopher Lee. By giving these classic tales of terror excellent scripts, beautiful production design and colorful cinematography, Hammer cemented their place in cinema history and have gone on to inspire generations of filmmakers in the years since. Yet, to many modern fright fans, these films don’t nearly get the appreciation they deserve, often times released by their respective studios in bare-bones reprints of foreign DVDs to the domestic marketplace.

    “BATTLE OF THE DAMNED” (Blu-ray/DVD Review)

    I’m sure I’m not the only horror fan who has begun to groan at the sight of the phrase “zombie apocalypse.” Since THE WALKING DEAD completed its gradual climb to media domination, it appears that every filmmaker under the sun has added zombies to their portfolio, and as a result, below-average undead offerings have littered DVD shelves week after week. However, for that very reason, when this writer discovers a secret success hidden amongst the crowd of disappointment, that’s all the more reason to celebrate, and even encourage those who break the mold of Z-grade direct-to-video horror.

    Less is More in Creepy “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” Teaser

    Have you ever experienced true evil? It’s a question posed in this first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s moody follow-up to the successful and impressive SINISTER, DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Rodriguez, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, and based off the true stories of NYPD Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, DELIVER US FROM EVIL seems like a much bigger production than SINISTER, even if the latter half of the trailer is evident of the tonality and minimalism of his last film.
