    Brandon Cronenberg Gets Dark & Creepy with JOOJ’s Music Video, “Shoulders and Whispers”

    After his feature film debut ANTIVIRAL made him a filmmaker to watch in his own right, FANGORIA has kept a close eye on filmmaker Brandon Cronenberg. Interesting enough, Cronenberg has found himself gravitating towards experimental music videos, navigating through the Canadian music scene to create some truly jarring and contemplative work. Now, Cronenberg has found himself at the helm of another aural oddity, lending his masterful eye to the haunting, NSFW inaugural single from the genre-defying musical outfit JOOJ, entitled “Shoulders and Whispers.”

    Will “IT FOLLOWS” Be Followed By A Sequel?

    Make no mistake: if you’ve been following 2015’s horror films, you’ve undoubtedly have been following IT FOLLOWS. The indie film-that-could from director David Robert Mitchell has gone from art-house golden ticket to mainstream success, earning nearly $10 million since it’s limited theatrical bow and wide expansion with only a $2 million production budget and an extremely limited marketing campaign. And with the film holding steady and generating buzz even at four plus weeks at the box office, the eventual talks about a sequel have arisen.

    Exclusive Premiere: First Artwork for “STITCHES” Producer’s Next, “THE LODGERS”

    As fright fans know, ghost stories are among the oldest and most universal forms of horror. Coming in all shapes and sizes, horror fans from across the globe can tap into that fear of the unknown after death, which is one of the reasons why haunting horror has made its way into the pop culture zeitgeist as of late. And in the tradition of classic Gothic horror, FANGORIA has the first artwork for a ghost story from Tailored Films, the production company behind the popular killer clown flick STITCHES, entitled THE LODGERS.

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 5” (TV Review)

    While this writer had his doubts here and there, there’s no denying that BATES MOTEL is in a full upswing in their third season, taking a patient yet effective approach of tying together the obligatory White Pine Bay drama to that of the Bates family. Yet over the course of the fifth episode, entitled “The Deal,” the show hits on two essential themes that will likely usher in the horror of the show sooner rather than later. The first theme would be that of growth, with Dylan and Norma both taking large steps in improving their social and emotional standings, at least to a certain point. The second theme would be that of descent, with both Romero and Norman finding themselves on a downward slide into utter desperation. And in the middle lay those on either side of the fence, whether it be Emma, Caleb, Bob Paris, or Chick Hogan.

    “HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3” Gets Official Release Date and Synopsis!

    Will the third HUMAN CENTIPEDE film truly be the “FINAL SEQUENCE”? With Tom Six’s first HUMAN CENTIPEDE film going from controversial festival fave to a legitimate pop culture phenomenon, the franchise has amassed a giant following, many of whom take each proceeding film as a litmus test for their visceral endurance. So when Tom Six claims that his vision will end with HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3: FINAL SEQUENCE, there’s a grain of salt that should be taken with said subtitle. Yet for a series that takes such pride in raising the bar of bad taste, perhaps HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3 will be untoppable for Six, and we’ll find out for ourselves soon as Entertainment Weekly has released the synopsis and release date for the third and supposedly last chapter in the HUMAN CENTIPEDE saga.

    FANTASTICA Presents: Seeking Horror In The Age of Streaming

    There’s little to no doubt that instant streaming is here to stay, and while physical media will exist in some form or another, there’s no amount of thinkpieces in the world that will change it. And as detrimental as it is to attention spans and the value of entertainment, instant streaming is bringing fans to content at an unprecedented rate, changing how film and television operate as a whole. But while streaming does much for the genre, especially in terms of getting eyes on films that the masses may otherwise have overlooked, the video store experience of finding obscure and unique genre classics- especially those that don’t fit the mass appeal mode- has become a much more difficult experience.

    NY/NJ! Join FANGO’s Ken Hanley for “MADMAN” at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers with a Cast/Crew Q&A!

    As our many horror fans may know, FANGORIA is a frequent host (and customer) at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers, a cinema that truly respects the films that it screens, especially those in the genre world. In fact, for certain forgotten fright films, some might think a VHS release would be too good of a tribute, but in the eyes of the Alamo (and with a bit of encouragement from the horror community), these films get the big screen treatment and then some. As such, with their recent Vinegar Syndrome partnership launching some of the most obscure horror titles back into the public consciousness, Alamo Yonkers are giving hardcore horror fans their chance to experience these films they way they’re meant to be seen. And with the upcoming screening of Joe Giannone’s MADMAN, the Alamo is going above and beyond by bringing the cast and crew of the film to the Drafthouse in a Q&A moderated by yours truly, which you can be a part of!

    “HOOKED UP” (Film Review)

    If patterns in the studio and independent level are any indications, it seems that found footage is finally descending from the horror zeitgeist. Yet in doing so, many assorted stragglers in the subgenre are finally rising to the surface and, oddly enough, many of these found footage titles are the ones that never quite fit into the genre’s expectations. And luckily for HOOKED UP, the found footage aspect is merely just a conduit for a genuinely tight and terrifying horror tale, and any expectations one might have for HOOKED UP (and the various familiar horror elements) are effortlessly turned on their head.
