  • Q&A: Actress Natalie Dormer on “THE FOREST”

    ,,

    At the beginning of the J-Horror remake boom of the early ‘00s, the subgenre had a certain level of excitement attached due to the associated talent involved in the films. With filmmakers like Gore Verbinski and Wes Craven attaching their names to these projects, the likes of Naomi Watts, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kristen Bell and more jumped into a genre that hasn’t always been painted in the best light among rising stars. And as fate would have it, the J-Horror genre is set to return stateside this Friday, January 8th, with THE FOREST, complete with rising star and GAME OF THRONES actress Natalie Dormer front-and-center of the petrifying picture. FANGORIA sat down with Dormer last month to talk about terror, twins and her trip to the real life Aokigahara “Suicide Forest”…

  • Stream to Scream: “DER SAMURAI”

    ,,

    There is something truly, genuinely thrilling about seeing a horror film that steps beyond the perceived boundaries of the genre. In a genre with a saturated marketplace and countless imitators of whatever is in the zeitgeist, to see something completely and utterly unique and without categorization is sadly a rarity nowadays. And to walk into such a film blind and vulnerable to anything a visionary filmmaker throws your way is even more rare, which makes DER SAMURAI a cinematic experience literally unlike any other.

  • “KILLERS” Directors Re-Team for Cryptic “MACABRE” Sequel

    ,

    For those keeping their eyes on the Indonesian film scene following the release of THE RAID films, the name Timo Tjahjanto should be quite familiar familiar. One half of The Mo Brothers, Tjahjanto memorably co-directed the amazing cult segment in V/H/S/2 with filmmaker Gareth Evans as well as last year’s brutal foreign thriller KILLERS. However, those more well-versed in Indonesian horror might know Tjahjanto from his feature film debut MACABRE, a TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE homage that put the fright filmmaker on the map following its buzzworthy festival run. Luckily, fans of that contemporary cult classic have been given reason to celebrate the New Year as Tjahjanto recently announced on his Instagram that a sinister sequel to the splattery film is indeed moving forward.

  • FANGO Flashback: “DEEP BLUE SEA”

    ,,

    As this writer has made abundantly clear, there’s few horror filmmakers that can churn out something as insane and kick-ass as frequently as Renny Harlin. Harlin has truly done it all, from reshaping iconic film characters like Freddy Krueger and John McClane to working with Sylvester Stallone and Shane Black to sinking Carolco with one CUTTHROAT-ISLAND sized bomb. But at the end of the day, Harlin hits his material with an infectious gusto, which is why so often his films are unmistakably entertaining. And in the case of films like DEEP BLUE SEA, the more over-the-top the vehicle may be, the more Harlin seems to find his cinematic strength.

  • “OVER YOUR DEAD BODY” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    As a fan of Takashi Miike for quite some time now, this writer has to respect the A-game and versatility that the man brings to his films. Shooting multiple films every year across different genres and subject matters, Miike finds the intersection between commercial and creative with an unmistakable level of talent at his behest. And yet, there’s something decidedly specific about his style and cinematic voice that separates him from his contemporaries, and makes jaw-dropping, surreal nightmares feel oddly familiar.

  • The Martyrdom of “HALLOWEEN RETURNS”: Why Dimension’s Loss is Michael Myers’ Gain

    ,,,

    Reflecting upon the near 40-year legacy of HALLOWEEN, it’s so strange to see all the places the franchise could have gone. Where would Michael Myers go had John Carpenter not retconned Laurie Strode’s lineage in PART II? Would we have even seen Michael again had HALLOWEEN III been a financial success? What would HALLOWEEN VII had been if Dimension pursued their SILENCE OF THE LAMBS-esque concept instead? And what if Rob Zombie turned down the opportunity to reboot the franchise a little over a decade ago?

  • FANGO Flashback: “MAGIC”

    ,,

    For a genre so incestuous in terms of producers, directors and shared talent, it’s always interesting to see a prestigious outsider dip their toes into horror. Whether it’s Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Jonathan Demme or other award-winning filmmakers who aren’t strictly tied to scare fare, there’s a certain fascination (and financial accommodation) that comes to their genre output that can’t necessarily be associated with those from whom horror hounds know what to expect. And furthermore, even if they do turn in something somewhat familiar to the genre, you can always expect top tier performances, executions and narrative flourishes that remind the audience exactly why tropes were scary in the first place, with few better examples than Richard Attenborough’s exceptionally creepy MAGIC.
