  • Netflix Acquires “FEBRUARY” Director’s Next Horror Offering

    ,

    Debuting at Toronto International Film Festival and quickly becoming one of the most buzzed-about festival titles of 2015, FEBRUARY is slated to scare audiences later this year from A24 Pictures (who, with THE WITCH and GREEN ROOM on their slate, are killing it in 2016). But what was even more of a sure thing following FEBRUARY’s debut was that Osgood Perkins would swiftly become an in-demand fright filmmaker, and today’s news from Variety confirms it: Perkin’s directorial follow-up, I AM THE PRETTY THING THAT LIVES IN THE HOUSE, has been set for financing and release by Netflix.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 More Icons Who Should Be in The FANGORIA Hall of Fame

    ,,

    Unlike most Halls of Fame, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame is not built by committee but rather by the fans themselves. With voting open as a part of the Chainsaw Awards ballot, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame has seen a variety of horror icons inducted, from FX masters to Final Girls to even iconic zombies.. However, with only so many spots open every year since the Chainsaw Awards’ humble beginnings in 1992, that does mean there are a fair share of deserving horror figures who have yet to have the honor of induction.

  • “THE INVITATION” Hosts a Terrifying Teaser Trailer

    ,

    If you’re a frequent FANGORIA reader, you’ve likely heard of the title THE INVITATION previous to this article, and likely for good reason. Having seen the film at Mile High Horror this past October, this writer can honestly say that it’s an undeniably chilling and intense experience, and one horror ans are wholly unprepared for until they witness it for themselves. And luckily, with the film less than 2 months away from hitting theaters via Drafthouse Films, the first official teaser trailer for the film captures that atmosphere perfectly.

  • Rod Serling and The Darker Side of “THE TWILIGHT ZONE”

    ,

    If you were going to look at THE TWILIGHT ZONE in terms of music, the perfect metaphor for the series most present voices would be the Beatles. If George Clayton Johnson’s introspective yet objectively lighthearted fare would make him the Ringo Starr of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, that would make Richard Matheson the more spiritually present and emotionally intricate George Harrison. And if Charles Beaumont would be the more polished and excitable Paul McCartney, the essential and darker flip side to that coin would be Rod Serling as John Lennon. And as silly and superficial as that may be, there might be no better way to describe Serling’s unique place on THE TWILIGHT ZONE: a creative genius who could create entertainment with others, but left unchecked, he’ll produce brash, angry art born out of societal frustration.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 FANGORIA Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best TV Series!

    ,,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. Truth be told, this might have been one of the hardest categories for FANGO to narrow down: BATES MOTEL had a more solid season than ever before, while improvements were found in the latest outings of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES and THE STRAIN alike. Alas, there can only be five horror series that can earn FANGORIA’s nominations, and these five series were, in this writer’s opinion, the most consistently strong of the televised terrors in 2015.

  • XLrator Media Acquires Fright Festival Favorite “SUN CHOKE”

    ,

    After a solid debut at the Stanley Film Festival in 2015, SUN CHOKE was a film to watch as it traversed the festival scene throughout 2015.

However, that has all changed today as Deadline confirms that FANGO friend XLrator Media has acquired distribution rights to the psychological slow-burn thriller.

  • “THE GUARDIAN” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Although William Friedkin’s relationship to suspenseful and intense storytelling goes far beyond the horror genre, many of his strictly genre titles tend to be overshadowed by the macabre masterpiece that is THE EXORCIST. For the most part, that tends to be a real shame considering some of the truly transgressive, insane and unique properties William Friedkin has directed within the horror genre. And firmly within that camp would be Friedkin’s 1990 effort THE GUARDIAN, a bloody and erotic tale mixture of domestic horror and supernatural madness that shows brilliant craftsmanship paired with a reckless abandonment of logic.
