    ,

    If you’re one of the FANGO faithful out there, we likely don’t need to tell you how much Lin Shaye kicks ass. She just does, in the warmest, nicest way possible.

  • New Trailer: Guillermo del Toro’s “CRIMSON PEAK”

    ,

    To be honest, this writer was very underwhelmed by the initial trailer for CRIMSON PEAK; the Nick Cave cover, unfinished CG and melodramatic flair made for a less-than-chilling first impression on this writer. However, any doubts I had with del Toro’s massive and macabre ghost story has been dissipated by the latest trailer, which certainly seems to match its ambition with bloody creepiness. And the incredible scope and design of the production has finally crossed over into immersive territory, allowing del Toro’s Gothic tale to hold the promise of an even more entrancing cinematic experience.

  • “EXTRATERRESTRIAL” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to the Tribeca-friendly filmmaking duo known as The Vicious Brothers, I have to admit that I’ll always keep a curious eye on their productions. Wherein their projects to date have a fair share of flaws, the GRAVE ENCOUNTERS films both contained an impressive amount of fun and frights to counteract said issues. So when I had learned that The Vicious Brothers would be returning properly with EXTRATERRESTRIAL, which would take them out of their found footage comfort zone with a much more ambitious story altogether, I was excited to see what they could do, despite hearing negative reviews from my colleagues. And with Scream Factory’s release of the IFC Midnight flick, I finally found a good opportunity to catch the film and see for myself what EXTRATERRESTRIAL was all about.

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 6” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For this writer, there’s no denying it anymore: SALEM is by far the most satisfying horror show on television. Episode by episode, the insane writing, incredible SFX and generally perfect performances combines the individual satisfying aspects that made AMERICAN HORROR STORY, THE WALKING DEAD and BATES MOTEL so successful on their own accord. Yet SALEM has one thing those shows lack, and it’s consistency, infusing their particular brand of horror and shock value storytelling with the organic character development and satisfying reveals of a masterful drama. And even better is SALEM’s refusal to draw a line on the show either: incest, torture and stomach-turning gore have become staples of the second season, served with an unabashed and maniacal grin.

  • Terror Tube: “DAMIEN”, “FEAR THE WALKING DEAD”, “THE X-FILES”

    ,

    Man, how the times have changed. Ten years ago, there was nary a horror show on television: DEXTER and TRUE BLOOD hadn’t hit premium cable, X-FILES was long gone and MASTERS OF HORROR was gearing up to be the most high profile horror show on television. Now, THE WALKING DEAD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY break rating records with each passing season, HANNIBAL and SALEM are reintroducing incredible practical SFX to TV and properties such as THE EVIL DEAD, PREACHER and more are making their way to the small screen. And now, FANGORIA has a trio of updates on some of the most anticipated upcoming scare fare on television, so get your calenders ready and sharpen your pencils, faithful readers…

  • Etheria Film Night 2015 Announces Official Short Film Lineup

    ,

    For female directors in the horror genre, misrepresentation, discrimination and gender-driven obstacles have long been both the bane of their efforts whilst also a motivation to go above and beyond expectations. Said motivation has born many efforts to curb those mindsets, but above else, it’s led to more independent female filmmakers than ever exploring the dark recesses of their artistic sensibilities, allowing endeavors such as the annual Etheria Film Night to exist. And now, the 2015 edition of the event, which will be held at June 13th, 2015, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, has announced it’s official short selection, which will lead to the North American premiere of Ursula Dabrowsky’s INNER DEMON.

  • “MAD MAX: FURY ROAD” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For fans of horror filmmaking, it’s no surprise that practically achieved cinematic magic has resonated so deeply within our sensibilities. After all, if something must be seen to be believed, then by seeing it, we believe it in one way or another. But beyond that, the ambition behind a practically achieved stunt or SFX moment is all the more convincing when we know that there’s an element of danger to the procedure, which suddenly makes the stakes much more real and makes our performers all the more believable, even in the most heightened universe.

  • “DIRECTOR’S COMMENTARY: TERROR OF FRANKENSTEIN” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    ,,

    When you have a legitimately fantastic and unique concept for a film, making said movie can feel like a game of basketball. You can hold on to the ball tight, you can show off fancy moves just because you’ve got a leg up on the competition, and you can exude a true show of confidence in every step you take with that ball. However, at the end of the day, all that matters is that the ball makes it into the net, and that you get credit for the points that you make. And other times, you can drop the ball, and perhaps someone else might pick up the ball one day and deliver on that promise that you had.
