  • Eerie Episodes: “THE HUNGER: Season 2, Episode 1” (1999)

    ,,

    While horror hounds might be more familiar with David Bowie and Tony Scott’s moody, macabre vampire film THE HUNGER, far less are familiar with their reunion on the second season premiere of THE HUNGER. While unrelated to the film in content, the themes and visual style are quite similar on the series, which is closer to a Gothic horror anthology in nature produced by Scott Free in the late ‘90s and aired on Showtime. And in the first episode of the second season, entitled “Sanctuary,” Bowie returned in front of the camera for Tony Scott, playing Julian Priest in an episode of horror television that is as creepy as it is bold and strange.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Actor!

    ,

    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. When it came to the Best Actor category, the competition was bloodthirsty and thus, many petrifying performances didn’t quite make the cut, including SINISTER 2’s James Ransone, THE GIFT’s Jason Bateman, SOME KIND OF HATE’s Ronen Rubinstein and DEATHGASM’s Milo Cawthorne. Even some performances from less acclaimed films- such as Keanu Reeves in KNOCK KNOCK and James McAvoy in VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN- were considered among the great performances of 2015. Alas, only five performances could cut through the crowd, with FANGORIA going with our gut to nominate the best of the best.

  • Stream to Scream: “EXCISION”

    ,,

    For this writer, Richard Bates Jr.’s EXCISION is one of those essential genre titles that operate close to the vein of horror comedy and yet don’t quite follow the horror-comedy mold. Much akin to William Friedkin’s KILLER JOE and, to an extent, Daniel Waters’ HEATHERS, EXCISION carries a mean-streak and matter-of-fact presentation of its darker, disturbing material that feels less conventional and yet completely humorous in execution. And furthermore, EXCISION is the kind of film that features an old school vibe in that it moves and is stylized at its own pace, giving characters their own moments to live and breathe within the universe while presenting artistic flourishes that feel unique and different from other depictions of internal fantasies.

  • “THE X-FILES: Season 10, Episode 3” (TV Review)

    ,

    While the “monster of the week” episodes of THE X-FILES were among the most definitive- and divisive- of the series’ original run, they also doubled as the perfect catalyst for character development on the program. With Scully’s rampant skepticism and Mulder’s penchant for conspiracies and the mystically-informed, the “monster of the week” entries would frequently challenge and build upon these traits while giving our heroes the brilliantly-written rapport the fans craved. And therefore, when THE X-FILES unveiled “Mulder and Scully meet the Were-Monster” on the third installment of the 6-episode series reboot, the show not only revived its fantastic sense of humor but offered a vintage X-FILES atmosphere that felt beyond satisfying to witness again.

  • “ALL HALLOWS’ EVE 2” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Whether you’re a fan or completely unaware of the 2013 indie horror anthology ALL HALLOWS’ EVE, there’s a good chance you’ll find it’s sequel to be a frustrating experience. On one hand, fans of the first film might be disappointed that the structure and face of the first film- the bloodthirsty ‘Art the Clown’- is completely thrown away in favor of something completely different altogether. And on the other hand, the anthology film more or less plays exactly how it was produced: a collection of wholly disconnected horror shorts bought and assembled with no cohesion or mission statement. Though some of these shorts are well produced and executed in their own right, the overall ALL HALLOWS’ EVE 2 experience feels far from satisfying, especially when paired with a lazy and generic wrap-around segment.

  • John Carpenter Announces Tour, “LOST THEMES” Sequel Album

    ,

    Last year, John Carpenter made his debut as a solo musical artist after a storied career as a composer on a majority of his own films, which includes co-writing and performing the iconic themes for HALLOWEEN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and more. LOST THEMES quickly became a lauded album among the horror community, spawning a remix album and even Carpenter’s first ever live performance in Iceland. Now, for those wondering just what is next for Carpenter as a musical artist, Sacred Bones Records has announced that LOST THEMES II will be dropping later this year with a handful of live international Carpenter performances as well!

    ,

    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. When it came to the Best TV Actress category, the competition was fierce and many fantastic performers didn’t quite make the cut, including FROM DUSK TILL DAWN’s Eiza Gonzalez, THE WALKING DEAD’s Alexandra Breckenridge, iZOMBIE’s Rose McIver, SCREAM’s Willa Fitzgerald and SOUTH OF HELL’s Mena Suvari. Alas, only five performances could garner nominations in the category’s sophomore year, with FANGORIA going with the strongest of the strong.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Foreign Language Film!

    ,,

    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. When it came to the Best Foreign Language Film category, there was some argument as to what technically counted for the category, eventually disqualifying technically-released-in-2015 film ANGST (due to it’s 1983 production) and WHITE DOG. Meanwhile, The Mo Brothers’ KILLERS and the anthology film MEXICO BARBARO were also in contention, but eventually were bumped out by its creepier competition. And after some careful consideration, FANGO found five fright flicks worthy of taking home the Gold Chainsaw.
