  • “GODDESS OF LOVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When a horror film- or any film for that matter- is subject to the independent production process, the sheer lack of budget and time to bring the story to reality is a true test to the mettle of a filmmaker. For some, the temptation to cut as many corners as possible and stretch out any given moment in an amateur attempt to get to feature length is an irresistible one. However, tried-and-true filmmakers rely on resources, passion and healthy collaboration to bring their story to life as authentically as possible. Jon Knautz certainly falls in the latter category, and in that regards, GODDESS OF LOVE uses its low-budget means to its advantage by crafting an utterly claustrophobic and bold film that is gripping from start to finish.

  • “COP CAR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While foreign horror fans may know Jon Watts best from his yet-to-be-released-stateside debut film CLOWN, the filmmaker made one hell of an impression with his indie thriller COP CAR earlier this year. And upon watching the film, COP CAR is really worth the hype, offering a lean, mean story of unassuming children in fatal danger with an atmosphere that feels like a mix between Coen Brothers crime film with the pacing of a Micheal Haneke flick. And with a new Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment, viewers will have a chance to experience the flick in a whole new light thanks to a stunning 1080p transfer.

  • Contest: Win a Chuck Palahniuk Prize Pack!

    ,

    Lovers of lurid literature need no introduction to Chuck Palahniuk, the foremost champion of the absurdly violent, depraved and tragic storytelling within the written word today. The transgressive author, who is currently hard-at-work on his graphic novel sequel to FIGHT CLUB, has spun heads and turned stomachs over the years, and even impossibly found a way to do so while being commercially accessible. And to celebrate Palahniuk’s accumulated works as well as the release of Issue #5 of Dark Horse Comics’ FIGHT CLUB 2, FANGORIA is teaming up with the master of the morbid for a giveaway of Palahniuk’s greatest hits (pun definitely intended)!

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horrors We’d Like To See in 3D, Part 2!

    ,,

    Six months ago, FANGORIA posted an edition of our beloved Dreadful Ten column focusing on the fright flicks we would most want to see in 3D, if ever given the chance. And while post-conversion 3D has a bad name among the horror community, the process can be used for good or can even enhance the experience, especially in the cases of JURASSIC PARK or PREDATOR. Hell, in Europe, it’s nearly routine for classic genre titles to get 3D Blu-ray rereleases! Therefore, we decided to add another batch of terror titles that this writer would love to see in the third dimension, whether it be for their incredible FX make-up or cinematography that is begging for the increased depth…

  • Arrow Video Blu-ray Round-Up: “THE BEAST”, “EATEN ALIVE” & More…

    ,,

    With a mind towards the obscure, the fascinating and the fantastic, there’s a reason why Arrow Video has earned the reputation as the unofficial Criterion Collection of the genre. Yet with their incredible restorations, top-tier special features and a very specific film selection, the comparison is more than justified and equally as impressive. Nevertheless, much like how beauty is in the eye of the beholder, film’s subjective nature might make choosing Arrow titles a risky task, and therefore, FANGORIA has rounded up Arrow Video’s latest titles to help fright fans find the right addition to their horrific high-def collection.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BELOW” (2002)

    ,,

    For most horror fans, BELOW is best categorized as the “submarine horror film,” likely because it’s one of the very, very few explicitly genre films set on a submarine. Yet if you think about it, submarines could be one of the easiest places to set a horror film; after all, it’s a claustrophobic metal tube that primarily is known for navigating the dark recesses of the ocean, and on a budgetary level, a filmmaker can get a lot of mileage out of a set primarily made of long, metal hallways. And beyond that, BELOW also holds the distinction of being a damn good horror movie, with the combination of director David Twohy and co-writer/producer Darren Aronofsky placing emphasis on scares and tension in ways many haunted house movies would only dream of doing.
