    From the FANGORIA Vault: “FRIDAY THE 13TH” (1980)

    With the recent barrage of snowstorms over here at the FANGORIA archives, it’s an understatement to say that summer cannot come fast enough. Summer often holds dear memories for this writer, whether it’s of drive-in fright films of yesteryear or the slasher renaissance that would fill the summers of my post-SCREAM adolescence. In fact, each generation likely had a horror film to impact their summers, whether it be JAWS to keep people away from the ocean en masse or FRIDAY THE 13TH to make summer camp even creepier.

    Q&A: Dominic Purcell on “VIKINGDOM”

    Whether it’s man-eating crocodiles, dream demons or half-human vampire slayers, actor Dominic Purcell has faced his fair share of frightening foes over the course of his career.

    Ever since his strong feature debut, the religious horror film FRAILTY, genre fans have long wondered when Bill Paxton would return to direct another eerie outing (he helmed THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED in 2005).

    Jodorowsky’s “DANCE OF REALITY” Coming to the U.S.

    Is it wrong to get emotional over the fact that genre fans will have a chance to see a new Alejandro Jodorowsky film in the very near future? In an age where most of the brave filmmakers of yesteryear are marginalized, ignored or slumming it in a bitter semi-retirement, the fact that one of the bravest has made, completed and sold his latest work of art is exciting, and possibly even overwhelming. And Jodorowsky has done just that, as, according to Variety, ABKCO Films has acquired his newest film, THE DANCE OF REALITY, for a U.S. Theatrical Release as well as the home video rights as well.

    Q&A: Director Kieran Parker on “OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ”

    From creating the story of the original film to now taking the reins of the series behind the camera, there are few people as instrumental to the OUTPOST franchise as Kieran Parker. A longtime and active producer on the films, Parker steps directs for the first time for the prequel, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ. Lean, intense and as bloody as the Nazi zombie madness that came before it, RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ is a worthy entry, offering insight to some of the key mysteries of the first film while providing a wealth of material which could be explored in future OUTPOST films. As the film makes its VOD debut, courtesy of XLrator Media, Parker spoke to FANGORIA about going back in time with this third offering of OUTPOST…
