  • “CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL” Soundtrack goes Vinyl!

    ,

    Before SOUTH PARK, TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE and THE BOOK OF MORMON, filmmakers Trey Parker and Matt Stone found their beginnings in a D.I.Y. horror comedy rooted in their Colorado heritage entitled CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL. Eventually released by Troma Entertainment, the film contained all the hallmarks of their future work, from brilliantly crude humor to insane musical numbers to shocking abrupt violence. And now, 23 years after the film’s release, CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL’s hilarious original soundtrack will be released as a limited edition vinyl LP!

  • Secret “CLOVERFIELD” Sequel Coming in March!

    ,

    Say what you want about J.J. Abrams, but there’s no figure in the film industry quite as unique in terms of branding. One of the few filmmakers who can preserve mystique in a spoiler-filled internet culture, Abrams has mastered the art of covert production, viral marketing and audience curiosity, even with a project as big as STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. However, the fact that J.J. Abrams has produced a sequel to his hit alien invasion film CLOVERFIELD with absolutely zero fanfare or leaks is a master stroke for Bad Robot, who announced the film shortly after the trailer (attached to 13 DAYS) was leaked online.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: Existing with Non-Existence within “ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD”

    ,,

    In Tom Stoppard’s now 25-year-old film ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, the playwright-turned-director does something precious few have ever done: he eschews the format of reality completely. Comparable to say Quentin Dupieux’s equally undefinable dark comedy RUBBER, ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN has no defined rules, no defined roles and coasts along on the oblivious nature of oblivion. And thanks to that attitude, Stoppard does Shakespeare by the way of Gilliam, offering something where the very world where the film exists is so unpredictable that there’s no way of knowing exactly what is at stake, a notion that is simultaneously hilarious, bizarre, tragic, terrifying and amazing.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NIGHTWATCH” (1997)

    ,,

    Following the critical and commercial success of SE7EN, Hollywood was looking for any and all fucked-up serial killer thrillers that could ride on that film’s coattails. With films such as FEAR, KISS THE GIRLS, 8MM and more popping out of the woodwork, finding the fetishistic depravity of possessive serial killers became the M.O. for the genre, with studios looking everywhere for dependable inspiration. And it is likely that search that brought Ole Bornedal to Hollywood to remake his film NIGHTWATCH, a unique, stylish psychological horror-thriller that added a Hitchcockian craftsmanship to otherwise dour, provocative subject matter.

  • Rest in Peace David Bowie (1947 – 2016)

    ,

    For a man whose career often brought him to places beyond the stars, it’s only fitting to say that David Bowie was a universal icon. Even in his oh-so-rare missteps, Bowie found something deep, strange, existential and heartbreaking, and more often than not, we all could find a piece of ourselves in his lyrics, his movements and his presence. So when news broke that David Bowie passed away on January 10th, 2016, after 18 months of battling cancer, there’s an undeniable emptiness and sense of disbelief that follows.
