  • Exclusive Poster: William Malone is back with “THALLIUM’S BOX”

    ,

    Out of all the esteemed contributors to MASTERS OF HORROR, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999) director William Malone is among the most underrated. The director’s striking visual eye, undeniable genre experience and understanding of what really scares people is inimitable. Yet with almost 7 years since his last time in the director’s chair, the genre has been missing Malone for far too long, which means that his recent announcement to Kickstart his latest endeavor, THALLIUM’S BOX, is an exciting potential prospect. And now, FANGORIA has an exclusive first look at THALLIUM’S BOX with an alternate poster from artist Christian Francis, which you can see below!

  • “SOME KIND OF HATE” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    ,,

    For a very long time, even here at FANGORIA, fright fans have long wondered what will happen to the once-prominent slasher subgenre in the future of horror. In the years since the SCREAM franchise offered a post-modern commentary on slasher tropes and expectations, the subgenre has struggled to maintain popularity, especially as the rise in supernatural horror coincided with the retroactive vilification of the slasher archetype. Some wondered if slashers would have to rewrite their formula altogether, while others imagined the subgenre would stick to the torture porn-adjacent straight-to-video output seen today. But for many, there remained a glimmer of hope that the subgenre would find an original, engrossing story that would act as an adrenaline shot to the dying heart of the slasher. And now, that film has been found with Adam Egypt Mortimer’s SOME KIND OF HATE, which, under the right circumstances, could hit contemporary audiences with a brutal, cringe-inducing and legitimately frightening rush in the same way Freddy Krueger did over 30 years ago.

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 8” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Say what you’d like about BATES MOTEL, especially during its problematic first two seasons, the show certainly finds strength in building tension. Few shows can build up a confrontation or carry a foreboding atmosphere as well as BATES, especially a show that puts its character drama ahead of its horror. Yet with that tension comes the inevitable: sooner or later, Norman is going to become the psycho we all know and love.

  • Q&A: Director Dan Bush on “THE RECONSTRUCTION OF WILLIAM ZERO”

    ,

    If there’s been a visible trend in the recent sci-fi/horror output as of late, it’s the theme of doubles. Whether it’s doppelgangers, dimensional anomalies or something far more sinister, the idea of two opposing sides of a biological coin has been one that has tapped into the multifaceted nature of the digital age and our seemingly scientifically unbound future. And while identity crisis is nothing new for director Dan Bush, who shared similar conceits in his break-out film THE SIGNAL alongside directors David Bruckner and Jacob Gentry, Bush tackles those themes and concepts outright in his latest film, the contemplative sci-fi thriller THE RECONSTRUCTION OF WILLIAM ZERO. Bush recently spoke to FANGORIA about WILLIAM ZERO, his work post-SIGNAL and putting together a spectacular cast, including THE SACRAMENT’s Amy Seimetz and THE WALKING DEAD’s Melissa McBride…

  • “ROAR” (FANTASTICA Film Review)

    ,,

    “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” A simple yet effective phrase that not so subtly implies that bad ideas that lead to worse consequences are often rooted in a generally positive thought. And while that phrase is often applied to more dire situations, the phrase can also be applied to Noel Marshall (and friends…)’s ROAR, especially if your idea of hell is an isolated house filled and surrounded by wild, untrained lions and tigers.

  • “JUDAS GHOST” (Film Review)

    ,,

    In the surge of haunting films coming out of the independent horror landscape as of the past few years, the struggle for originality has become harder and harder. Of course, many of these films have become reliant of jump scares, familiar imagery and a wealth of off-screen demises to mask the unfortunate limitations of their budget. However, a rare few of these films are approached with ambitious stories with genuinely unique scares, and the filmmakers are so enamored with those tales that they tackle them head on, despite their budgetary restrictions. And in that experience lies something much more gripping, imaginative and chilling, and is what makes Simon Pearce’s JUDAS GHOST such a welcome addition to the haunting film canon.
