    FANGO Flashback: “CHILD’S PLAY”

    While the horror genre has its fair share of great sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots, there’s nothing quite like the original. Yet sometimes, after seeing some of the insane or bizarre places a fright franchise can go, memories of the original can become cloudy or perhaps even heightened in status without a proper and timely re-examination. But then there are the fright franchises that have always had that weird subversive streak to them, and there’s few whose concept has helped usher in such eerie and odd material as well as CHILD’S PLAY.

    Trailer: Will Shyamalan Strike Back with “THE VISIT”?

    Believe it or not, but this writer has never quite dismissed M. Night Shyamalan in the way that many critics and audiences alike have. To this writer, Shyamalan certainly has the talent to excel when given the right set of circumstances, and I’ve always believed that as his stories grew in scope, the suspense and tact that made the director so effective in THE SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE and SIGNS has become less ingratiated in his approach. However, if scope is Shyamalan’s big problem, then all logic would point to his latest film, Blumhouse’s THE VISIT, being a return to form for the once-lauded genre auteur as it appears to be his most intimate and creepy venture in years.

    Exclusive Premiere: “HANNIBAL” / “AQUARIUS” Promo Reunites Ex-Duo

    For fans of NBC’s HANNIBAL, the show’s ability to get away with some seriously visceral violence has set a precedent for what horror shows can do on network TV. In fact, the chilling content of HANNIBAL is even setting the stage for its upcoming coupling with the Charles Manson procedural thriller, AQUARIUS, which will make a petrifying pair this summer. But even beyond the terrifying thematic material that the shows may carry, there’s another connection between HANNIBAL and AQUARIUS that fright fans will recognize, and FANGORIA has the exclusive premiere for NBC’s latest spot for the HANNIBAL/AQUARIUS combo.

    New Photo, Comments: “ASH VS. EVIL DEAD” Commences Production!

    There are very, very few franchises more beloved within the horror genre aside from the EVIL DEAD series. The brainchild of director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell, EVIL DEAD and its sequels have provided some of the scariest, funniest, most gruesome and maddening genre entertainment throughout horror history, culminating in one of the best received horror remakes in quite some time. But for all the splattery insanity on display in Fede Alvarez’s 2013 installment, fright fans were still clamoring for the return of Ashley J. Williams, which Starz will be offering on a silver platter with their upcoming 10-episode series ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. Don’t take our word for it, however: with production on the show launching merely days ago, Raimi, Tapert and Campbell took part in a massive phone conference, where they talked about the series, the legacy and, in a shocking turn of events, their undying love for FANGORIA!

    Event Report: “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” Into The Further 4D Experience!

    While this may seem somewhat of a generic mantra for a horror fan, this writer is always searching for that next big scare. As haunted house experiences get more and more interactive and the media landscape changes, that search becomes increasingly adventurous and new. But while I’ve experienced horror in theme park attractions, theaters, haunts, video games and many more places, I’ve yet to experience horror in the world of virtual reality. However, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 was willing to change that with their now-touring ‘Into The Further 4D Experience’.

    “THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2: ANGEL OF DEATH” (Blu-ray Review)

    It’s not easy being a sequel, especially when you’re the sequel to an acclaimed remake of an acclaimed film based off an acclaimed novel and produced by the grandaddy of horror houses, Hammer. But in any case, being a sequel such as THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 is even harder considering the nature of the first film, which took stock in hard-to-replicate environmental scares instead of cheap jump scares. And while THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2: ANGEL OF DEATH isn’t quite as effective as it should be, the film still makes an admirable and classy attempt at capturing the literal and figurative spirit of the first film.

    Exclusive Pic; Announcement: Oscilloscope Labs Nabs Festival Fave “BODY”

    When it comes to genre entertainment, a sign that a genre film is truly unique, surreal and of high caliber is when it lands at Oscilloscope Laboratories. The distributor behind flicks like RARE EXPORTS, BELLFLOWER, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN and COHERENCE, Oscilloscope’s releases often have an exploratory nature to them, venturing into directions and content that is ultimately much different than fans expect, and often to their delight. So with that in mind, Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s acclaimed thriller BODY just skyrocketed towards this writer’s “must-see” list as the film has officially been acquired for North American distribution by O-Scope.
