  • FANGO Flashback: “NINJA III: THE DOMINATION”

    ,,

    As anyone familiar with the frequently over-the-top production house can tell you, The Cannon Group didn’t make the kind of films one forgets easily. In fact, with titles like 10 TO MIDNIGHT, SCHIZOID, THE COMPANY OF WOLVES and a trio of Tobe Hooper films (LIFEFORCE, INVADERS FROM MARS and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2) under their belt, Cannon gave the horror genre some of the sleaziest, bloodiest, and most imaginative fare throughout the ‘80s. Yet nothing quite married the best, worst and craziest elements of The Cannon Group than NINJA III: THE DOMINATION, a horror-action odyssey that takes the possession subgenre into jaw-dropping insanity.

  • “MORTAL REMAINS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Contrary to popular opinion, the term “low-fi” should never directly be synonymous with “low quality.” Whether it’s the means of a the filmmaker or simply the scope of the narrative that best suits the low-fi nature of the project, just because a project doesn’t have the glitz and finesse of a studio production doesn’t disqualify the film as “less than.” And if one needs any proof of this, they not need look any further than Christian Stavrakis & Mark Ricche’s MORTAL REMAINS, which excellently uses its independent means to build a believable mythos around a dangerous fictional figurehead.

  • Stream to Scream: “FRANKENHOOKER”

    ,,

    From what this writer hears and sees on a daily basis, many horror fans are turned off by what is being offered in the wave of modern macabre cinema these days. And while those fans might be a little dramatic and potentially a little blind to the excellent output on the independent level, this writer can agree that, in most cases, horror filmmakers just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Case in point: FRANKENHOOKER, the type of film that is both equally absurd and astonishing yet would never, ever be produced today.

  • Exclusive Video Premiere: Mindless Self Indulgence’s “PERSONAL JESUS” Cover

    ,,

    Fans of horror might be familiar with the wild, reckless tunes of Mindless Self Indulgence, the nearly 20-year-old rock band that has shocked the masses to become one of the most divisive acts out there. And while lead singer Jimmy Urine has been more involved with the horror genre lately, churning out a creepy lullaby for THE HIVE and even performing on-screen for ALLELUIA! THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, Mindless Self Indulgence has given FANGORIA the exclusive premiere to their most terrifying music video yet: their Satanic spin on Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus”!

  • Exclusive Clip, Q&A: Dylan Greenberg’s D.I.Y. “DARK PRISM”

    ,

    There have been many exceptional fright filmmakers to come out of the Troma camp, whether it be James Gunn, Eli Roth, Joe Lynch, Trent Haaga and more. And while the shlocky masters of bloody, splattery satire continue to make their mark on the genre community, their work has inspired myriad others to pick up a camera and establish their own visceral cinematic voice. Filmmaker Dylan Greenberg is certainly one of the most-inspired members of the Troma team, and with her third feature now finished at the age of 18, Greenberg has given FANGORIA an exclusive clip and comments on her latest horror offering, DARK PRISM

  • Release Date, First Episode Revealed for “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” Season Three!

    ,

    As all fright fans know, it’s not easy to get a film made, especially any horror film with any ambition and imaginative concepts. However, while many horror filmmakers flock to television, some are thinking outside the box as a way to pursue their creative endeavors. And though the last season- entirely comprised of live performances- hit audiences nearly two years ago, filmmakers Larry Fessenden (WENDIGO) and Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD) turned to the audio realm to fuel the minds of their cohorts via their radio plays TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Yet now, FANGORIA has some good news for fans of TALES, as well as a completely free way to get a terrifying taste of the show’s third season!

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Producers Rand Ravich & Howard Gordon talk “LOOKINGLASS”

    ,

    Alongside the more genre-friendly LUCIFER and THE X-FILES, LOOKINGLASS looks to bring the hard-hitting action to sci-fi fans this upcoming year on FOX as they mix an old school detective story with an older school horror inspiration. Yet LOOKINGLASS is more than just star Rob Kazinsky playing a rejuvenated and supernaturally-abled badass avenging his own death; there’s also a bigger and more complicated story at hand, touching on subjects based out of controversial sciences and social commentary. Thankfully, FANGORIA was able to talk to producers Rand Ravich and Howard Gordon at New York Comic Con 2015 to shed some light on this Frankenstein story…

    LOOKINGLASS will debut on FOX in 2016. Stay tuned here at FANGORIA.com for on New York Comic Con and LOOKINGLASS!

  • Doug Jones & Photographer Joshua Hoffine team for FX-heavy, Lovecraftian “INNSMOUTH” Project

    ,

    Despite having a film in theaters with CRIMSON PEAK and three successful television series air over the summer, I think fright fans can agree that there is simply not enough of Doug Jones in our lives. An extraordinary actor with or without a mountain of make-up, Jones is not only a talented performer but a genuine fan of horror in his own right, especially when it comes to classic terror tales and the Gothic. So therefore, it’s great and, admittedly, not too surprising to see Jones as the sole human element in the latest project from acclaimed horror photographer Joshua Hoffine, entitled INNSMOUTH!

  • “INK & STEEL” Filmmakers Want Your Attention With “#DISTRACTDEAD”

    ,

    It’s always exciting to see fright filmmakers go outside of their comfort zone and go for more versatile output. It’s easy for filmmakers to stick to a niche or the expectations of their fanbase, so for co-directors Patrick Ward-Perkins and Jonathan Ehlers to branch out from their documentary feature INK & STEEL to the horror genre is a welcome change of pace. And now, Ward-Perkins & Ehler’s have hit the ‘net with first look at their biting and creepy fright flick, entitled #DISTRACTDEAD.

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Rob Kazinsky talks “LOOKINGLASS”

    ,

    Originally titled THE FRANKENSTEIN CODE, the upcoming FOX sci-fi/crime series LOOKINGLASS has dropped the daunting weight of Mary Shelley’s shadow upon their work for something a bit more esoteric. However, a bit of mystery would be fitting for LOOKINGLASS, a series that looks to be just as much in the vein of a kick-ass procedural as it does creepy social commentary ala BLACK MIRROR. And with the show’s debut still a ways away, FANGORIA was able to get some words out of star and TRUE BLOOD veteran Rob Kazinsky regarding his experiences within LOOKINGLASS…
