  • FANGO Flashback: “HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES”

    ,,

    The progression of Rob Zombie as a director is actually rather fascinating, especially considering his reputation as a gritty, extreme horror filmmaker. While the filmmaker has indeed at least embraced his perhaps prematurely bestowed title as a modern goremeister with his latest film, 31, the fact is that only a select few of his films are explicitly twisted, and even they seem relatively tame by today’s standards. In fact, by his track record, Zombie has made just as much slow-burn, surreal fright fare (such as THE LORDS OF SALEM and HALLOWEEN 2) as he has made gritty bloodletters (such as HALLOWEEN and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS). And yet, somewhere in the middle of those two points is a weird little film that, in retrospect, feels like an unholy mix of ‘80s-era Tobe Hooper and H.G. Lewis: HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES.

  • NYCC ’15 Video Interview: Bruce Campbell talks “ASH VS. EVIL DEAD”

    ,,

    You asked for him, and now you’ve got him! With the first season looming around the corner, Ash is definitely back and ready to kick Deadite ass once again. But of course, there is no Ash without his real life counterpart, living legend Bruce Campbell, who can command a room filled with thousands of fright fans just as easily as he can wear a Chainsaw arm. And with ASH VS. EVIL DEAD on our minds at New York Comic Con, FANGORIA got some on-camera time with the King himself to talk EVIL DEAD, working with FX both practical and digital and becoming Ash once more…

  • Scream Factory to produce first original film, “FENDER BENDER” with “NIGHT FLIER” director

    ,

    For the last few years, Scream Factory has proven themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the specialty distribution market. The label, which puts out many of fright fan’s favorite cult classics and underrated horror films on Blu-ray, recently made the jump into the original content pool with Astron-6’s THE EDITOR, Dr. God’s BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, James Roday’s GRAVY and Takashi Miike’s OVER YOUR DEAD BODY. Now, Scream Factory makes an even bigger impression on the genre, as they’ve announced that they’re taking a step further and putting together their very first original feature film production.

  • “THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    What defines a “Master of Horror” among the fright filmmakers past and present? Is it the prolific nature of the filmmaker, having had years and years of terror title under their belts? Is it the strength of the films they make, even if they work only once in a blue moon? Or is it the originality of the filmmaker, offering something completely unique and different with each passing title that can’t be seen quite anywhere else?

  • “TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: DEMON KNIGHT” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Even though TALES FROM THE CRYPT took pop culture by storm when it debuted at the tail end of the ’80s, it’s a damn shame that the first film under the series’ banner, DEMON KNIGHT, isn’t considered to be more of a genre classic. With one of the strongest ensemble casts in horror history, an imaginative script and brilliant practical effects work from Todd Masters, Ernest Dickerson’s first foray into fright filmmaking is an undeniably fun and impressive effort on all accounts. And yet, DEMON KNIGHT never quite carries the same weight as contemporary classics such as TRICK ‘R TREAT, NIGHTBREED and PUMPKINHEAD, although hopefully that reputation will turn around with the film’s incredible new Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

  • Event Report: “BLADE”, “EVIL DEAD” and “PUMPKIN PIE” at New York Comic Con!

    ,,

    As anyone who went to college with me will tell you, mornings are not my forte. Truth be told, when working in a genre that so often jumps from all day film festivals to midnight movies in the blink of an eye, having any type of set schedule feels is potentially a one-way ticket to personal disappointment. But early mornings, those that begin between the hours of 5 a.m. and 7 a.m., are often the bane of my existence and remind me of my days within the unforgiving retail world. However, few things will make this writer actively excited to wake up between those hours, and one of them is none other than New York Comic Con.

  • Stream to Scream: “BIG ASS SPIDER”

    ,,

    In today’s current horror landscape, there seems to be three kinds of creature features made for hardcore monster movie fans. The first would be the big budget blockbusters such as GODZILLA or PACIFIC RIM, which offer insane monster fighting action at a massive scale. The second would be the no-budget Syfy Originals, which offer over-the-top monster-run-amok films with Z-grade FX and stern, humorless performances. And then there’s the few and far between that comes out of the independent film world, some which have a campy appreciation for the creature features of the past and some, such as BIG ASS SPIDER!, that embrace the genre’s nature and makes comedy out of an inherently comical concept.
