    “TWIN PEAKS” 2016 Revival in Doubt?

    For this writer, the announcement that Showtime would be bringing back TWIN PEAKS last year was nothing short of a dream come true, if only for the idea that Lynch would return to the director’s chair (for nine hours of content), let alone to bring back one of the genre’s most beloved properties. Yet since the announcement, the updates have been few and far between: Kyle MacLachlan’s return was all but assured, and the return of Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook was expected as well. Yet, on Friday, some rather off-putting news dropped from reliable fan site Welcome to Twin Peaks regarding the show’s return… or possible lack thereof.

    “THE RETURNED: Season 1, Episode 1″ (TV Review)

    Considering the acclaimed French series from which it is based on, A&E’s THE RETURNED always has had a critical and commercial hurdle to jump. After all, the original series has taken on new life via instant streaming services and is beloved among both fans of horror and drama. And among many contemporary viewers, the chance that the show would stick too slavishly to its source material seemed unappealing in its own right. Yet even though the show has been sticking to it’s French inspiration , the performances on display are strong enough to uncover potential in the future of the series.

    Report: FANGORIA’s Visit to the Set of WGN America’s “SALEM”

    Going to Louisiana last weekend was not necessarily something I planned. In fact, last weekend in my New Jersey locale, I’d been planning on staying inside and avoiding the ridiculously cold weather and abhorrent snowstorms plaguing the area last week. Yet, when opportunity knocks in the form of a last minute set visit in anywhere but Jersey, I was more than willing to jump on the next plane out of town.

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 1″ (TV Review)

    To this writer, there’s a certain satisfaction in knowing the direction that BATES MOTEL will eventually go, and the, dare we say, change in Norman’s voice that’s been teased in A&E’s previews for season three. But, BATES MOTEL still has to get there, and  I have to give A&E credit in that the first episode of the third season is much better written than most of season two, especially in terms of the oh-so-uncomfortable approach to Norman and Norma’s familial relationship. And with strong writing comes strong performances, and luckily, strong direction, which all makes “A Death in the Family” a solid lead in with a promise of something much creepier.

    “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE” (1962) (UK Blu-ray Review)

    Now, I’ll be up front: THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE is not a horror movie. However, the 1962 John Frankenheimer film is as close as a political thriller could be to being a horror film and a believable drama, carrying elements that are familiar to genre fans, including PSYCHO, THE DEAD ZONE and ROSEMARY’S BABY. And it also has the benefit of being genuinely scary at points, and thanks to a befitting Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video, the time is ripe for revisiting this intense and unnerving classic.

    Q&A: “WOLFCOP” himself Leo Fafard Speaks!

    With the amount of campy throwbacks hitting the market recently, those films are only as effective as those filling the shoes of their main attraction. This is especially true for WOLFCOP, a film in which the human aspect has to be as endearing and fun enough to keep the audience engaged until we get to the more monstrous action. Luckily, that film has Canadian actor Leo Fafard filling the role of the beastly constable, delivering a committed and frequently hilarious performance both in and out of make-up. FANGORIA recently caught up with Fafard about his inaugural leading role as well as keeping his humanity as the WOLFCOP…

    Malcolm McDowell Leads Rob Zombie’s “31”

    Ever since appearing in Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN, Malcolm McDowell has become one of the director’s favorite collaborators, going lengths to bring McDowell back for HALLOWEEN II and featured the actor in his infamous CSI: MIAMI episode. And while budgetary and time constrictions led McDowell to not appear in THE LORDS OF SALEM, Zombie has recently confirmed that McDowell will be playing a major role in his upcoming film 31.

    With only 24 hours left to vote in the 22nd edition of the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, FANGORIA has tried to give every nominee their day in the sun. Yet at the end of the day, each nominee is only as strong as the fans who have seen them, and in this regards, some truly special work has gone unnoticed. However, for the first time ever, FANGORIA gave our nominees the opportunity this year to campaign actively here on FANGORIA.com to state their case for their film or performance, and the good folks from XLrator Media responded in a big way to rally behind their nominee, Gerard Johnstone’s HOUSEBOUND!

    Have the “INSIDE” Duo Found Their “LEATHERFACE”?

    Though the sentiment in the horror community has been unsurprisingly negative towards the idea of another TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie following the dreadful (yet successful) TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, the idea that the supremely talented Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be guiding the film is always somewhat of a reassurance. But even that aspect haven’t stopped fans from rallying against a Leatherface origin story; after all, wasn’t the character at his scariest when the closest thing we had to backstory was a shot of a big metal door? Nevertheless, the show is still going on, and now, according to The Wrap, Bustillo and Maury may have found the most infamous member of the Sawyer clan.
