  • Found Footage… FOR REAL: Donald Pleasence & FEAR take Manhattan on Halloween!

    ,

    Let’s travel back in time, shall we? The year is 1981. In New York, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE has become a shell of itself, falling in ratings as a new cast struggles to hit a chord with audiences while producers are desperate for any gimmick that could bring back lost viewers. In Los Angeles, THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION is being screened to cult success and massive controversy, with even the Los Angeles Police Department demanding the documentary- which objectively follows the budding, disruptive and violent punk rock music scene- not be shown again in the city. And in the world of horror, the producers of HALLOWEEN- taking a cue from the success of FRIDAY THE 13TH in the slasher fanbase’s unwaning interest in the subgenre- are getting ready to roll-out the sequel a full three years after Michael Myers came home the first time. And little do they know, these three events are going to collide in one of the most notorious and bizarre live events in television history.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Supporting Actress

    ,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to Best Supporting Actress, there were many deserving choices who didn’t unfortunately make the cut, including KRAMPUS’ Allison Tolman, SOME KIND OF HATE’s Sierra McCormack, and DEATHGASM’s Kimberley Crossman. Likewise, there were even horror titles whose eerie ensembles made it quite difficult to narrow down a specific nominee, including THE MIDNIGHT SWIM and THE FINAL GIRLS. Nevertheless, with only five performers that could land the nominations, FANGORIA had to narrow it down to our five absolute favorite supporting performances from an actress in 2015…

  • “THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION III” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While Scream Factory pours their heart and soul into any box set they release, the boutique distributor’s pride and joy would be their series of VINCENT PRICE COLLECTIONS. Having already brought such classic films such as HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, WITCHFINDER GENERAL and more to high definition via these sets, the VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION series have been a fitting tribute to the performer’s esteemed oeuvre with enough unique special features to impress even the most ardent collector. Now, Scream Factory is back with their third VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION, although with many of Price’s classics already on the HD market, this selection is going deeper into his filmography with more obscure titles and extras to boot.

  • “THE MUTILATOR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    One of the benefits of being a relatively younger fright fan is being able to see the cult classics and eerie obscurities of the ’80s for the first time in this day and age. Whether it’s insane fright fare like BLOOD RAGE, the campy fun of MADMAN or the ridiculous proto-slashers of BLOOD AND LACE, they certainly don’t make ’em how they used to, and without the baggage of the bigger franchises looming over them as they must have upon their initial release, these bad boys often take a life of their own. And somewhere among the weirder horror offerings is THE MUTILATOR, a brutal oddity that, for all of its pacing and dialogue issues, more than makes up for it in the gore department with a stylish scene or two to help keep things interesting.
