  • Director’s Cut of “THE EXORCIST III: LEGION” is coming to Blu-ray!

    ,

    A few weeks ago, a rather interesting email popped up in my inbox regarding a potential news tip, claiming that THE EXORCIST III: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT was discovered, assembled and is getting a Blu-ray release. However, with an unproven source emailing under a clear pseudonym, this writer was a bit apprehensive going forward with the news, especially considering that THE EXORCIST III was only recently given a Blu-ray release of its own. Yet news out of Destroy the Brain today has given this writer cause to revisit that email with much less caution as it appears that William Peter Blatty’s original cut of THE EXORCIST III: LEGION will be making its debut on Blu-ray soon!

  • FANGO Flashback: “BRIDE OF CHUCKY”

    ,,

    Following the release of CURSE OF CHUCKY, fans of the CHILD’S PLAY franchise rallied behind the film, many of whom called it a return to form for Don Mancini as well as Chucky as a frightening character. In fact, those same sentiments echoed that of the last time the CHILD’S PLAY franchise underwent retooling, following CHILD’S PLAY 3 beating a dead horse with the same old slasher formula. Of course, the last reinvention of CHILD’S PLAY came in the form of BRIDE OF CHUCKY, which not only served as a strong introduction of Charles Lee Ray into the serial-killer culture of the later 20th Century but built upon the mythology of the franchise to refreshingly weird places.

  • John Skipp’s Fungasm Press Releases “HAUNT” Audiobook!

    ,

    For longtime fans of horror literature, the name “John Skipp” should be no stranger than that of Jack Ketchum or Clive Barker. Having made his name from the writing duo of Skipp and Spector, the author has since branched out to filmmaking (co-helming a segment of TALES OF HALLOWEEN), genre journalism (with FANGORIA’s own ‘Nightmare Royale’) and publishing with his own imprint, Fungasm Press. Now, Skipp and Fungasm are breaking into new territory, offering terror for one’s ears with their debut audiobook venture, HAUNT.

  • “DEATHGASM PART 2: GOREMAGEDDON” Announced; Screenplay Completed

    ,

    In the increasingly unsure and constantly changing media landscape, any indie horror success story is one worth celebrating. Whether it’s a “little film that could” such as IT FOLLOWS or a streaming success story such as THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN, any win for those working in low-budget horror is a step towards bolder voices receiving bigger venues for their talents. And yet with VOD numbers far fromt transparent, who could have predicted that one of this year’s goriest and most fun fright flicks would be getting a proper follow-up as filmmaker Jason Lei Howden has announced DEATHGASM PART 2: GOREMAGEDDON is coming to bang heads once again!

  • Exclusive Comments, BTS Pics: Rebekah McKendry’s first feature “ALL THE CREATURES WERE STIRRING”!

    ,

    Over the summer, Rebekah McKendry bid FANGORIA ado after several years of serving the magazine as writer, head of sales/marketing and overall voice of the publication. McKendry has been one of FANGO’s most versatile personalities before taking the reigns of Blumhouse.com, moderating panels at conventions, co-hosting KILLER POV and dishing out her own scary short films in her free time. And in the latter category, McKendry has stepped up to the big leagues as Variety has announced that she is co-directing her first feature film with her husband David!

  • “ZOMBIE HIGH” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    The one thing this writer will always give to specialty distributor Scream Factory is that they have an inherent penchant for finding the most odd and obscure cult titles from throughout horror history. Whether it’s the weird and wild BLOOD AND LACE or the effortlessly bizarre DEADLY EYES, Scream Factory has given fans of vintage viscera no matter how underrated or lowly in the horror pantheon. Yet few Scream Factory releases are as strange as a whole as ZOMBIE HIGH, a horror comedy that’s as conceptually confused as it is fascinating as both entertainment and as a launchpad for many of today’s top hollywood talents.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “MONSTER PARTY” returns to talk Horror Sequels with writer Robert Zappia!

    ,,,

    In pop culture, sequels and the horror genre have become nearly synonymous with one another, with nary a homage or parody missing that aspect of the genre. With the horror audience so loving of the characters and FX wizardry within our favorite fright franchises, there are more sequels to horror properties than one could have ever imagined. So luckily, this week’s MONSTER PARTY has more macabre material than they could sink their teeth into as the fearsome four sit down with HALLOWEEN: H20 scribe Robert Zappia to talk horror sequels!

  • Event Report: “BLUE SUNSHINE” in 4K & Jeff Lieberman Q&A at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    ,

    As many horror fans in New York and New Jersey can tell you, the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers can be one hell of a horror hub. From first run frights, macabre movie marathons and screenings of vintage scare fare, including Michael Gingold’s own PRINTS OF DARKNESS screening, Alamo offers all sorts of horror all the time. Yet sometimes, Alamo Drafthouse pulls out all the stops for horror hounds, as it did last Friday when the venue offered the very first true 4K screening of Jeff Lieberman’s BLUE SUNSHINE with the director in attendance!

    ,

    While it may be a few weeks before FANGORIA fanatics will have the chance to enter THE FOREST, buzz for the fright flick is rising as the film’s scary subject matter (based off the real Aokigahara Suicide Forest) and marketing campaign captures the eyes and imaginations of horror hounds. And now, Gramercy Pictures is giving those interested in seeing the Aokigahara Forest for themselves a chance to do so as a new sweepstakes will send one lucky fear fan and one companion to Tokyo, Japan!

  • “KRAMPUS: SHADOW OF SAINT NICHOLAS” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    There’s a certain magic in retaining talent from film to comics when it comes to graphic novel tie-ins as opposed to attempting to replicate the magic with new parties. When a film or franchise presents a specific atmosphere, sense of humor and logic, those who know it best can do the best job at carrying that continuity to the page, allowing the illustrators and colorists to do their own thing when it comes to the visual side of things. And with KRAMPUS: SHADOW OF SAINT NICHOLAS, that’s very much the truth as the inclusion of Michael Dougherty, Zach Shields and Todd Casey ensured the voice and viscera of the film are reflected in this universe-building graphic novel.

  • Q&A: S.V. Fedotov talks zombie comedy novel “GUTS AND GLORY”

    ,,

    As an author in my own right, this writer finds it to be incredibly refreshing to see the many talented voices in the horror community rising up with projects they can call their own. It’s even more refreshing when a writer works outside of their comfort zone, as FANGORIA’s own S.V. Fedotov has with her literary debut, GUTS AND GLORY. While Fedotov’s area of expertise lies largely with graphic novels and comic books, her literary debut tells a vibrant, hilarious story in words alone, although she certainly is keeping her eyes to the future. FANGORIA recently spoke to Fedotov about GUTS AND GLORY, writing humor within horror and where her work may take her next…
