  • Q&A: Actress Grace Phipps on “SOME KIND OF HATE”

    ,

    With many of the showstoppers from the 2015 Stanley Film Festival now reaching theaters and VOD, the one film this writer is ready to see unleashed upon the horror community is Adam Egypt Mortimer’s feature directorial debut, SOME KIND OF HATE. A supernaturally-driven slasher that cleverly questions preconceived notions about depression, bullying and revenge, SOME KIND OF HATE was among FANGO’s favorites of the festival. With the film raring to show its bloody face this Friday, FANGORIA caught up with actress Grace Phipps- who plays one of HATE’s most troubled teens- to talk about the shoot, her complicated character and what fright fare she’s involved in next…

  • Stream to Scream: “ZOMBEAVERS”

    ,,

    When it comes to a film like Jordan Rubin’s ZOMBEAVERS, where do you start but with the title? Obviously, many who see the film will immediately expect FULL MOON level camp at best, especially since the world of Syfy Originals has propelled animal horror into dull parody territory over the past decade. However, don’t let the punny, funny title fool you: ZOMBEAVERS is a full-fledged monster movie, with some genuinely awesome FX work as well as a firm sense of self-awareness that never derails the narrative. And furthermore, rather than desperately attempting to be a throwback or be too referential, ZOMBEAVERS decides to tell an original creature feature story that also works as an irreverent contemporary horror comedy in its own right.

  • “THE HIVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    THE HIVE is a bit of a difficult film to review, at least for this writer. Not because it’s a difficult movie to understand- which it’s not- nor is it because it’s bad- which it’s definitely not. In fact, THE HIVE is, for the most part, an excellent film, and the kind horror audiences should be embracing considering that it’s an original, R-rated contagion movie that has some genuinely interesting and scary concepts at play. But the reason THE HIVE is difficult to review is because the film treads very lightly with its originality, as the film gets concerningly close to many of its very apparent influences.

  • Event Report: GWAR-B-Q 2015!

    ,,,

    Truth be told, I never sleep well the night before a big trip. That childlike spirit of excitement offers a dose of unrelenting restlessness and next thing you know, it’s 2 hours before you have leave and you haven’t slept a wink. And while most times I’d be chastising myself for being dumb enough to not have invested in a sleeping pill or the like, this time I gave myself a little more leeway: I don’t often get out to music festivals, and the last time I did was the first (and unfortunately last) time I had seen our upcoming headliner: GWAR.

  • Pittsburgh’s ScareHouse Haunted Attraction Adds “TRICK ‘R TREAT”, “KRAMPUS” Haunts!

    ,

    Outside of Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, there’s few places that fright fans can go to find officially licensed haunts based on their favorite cinematic properties. In fact, most haunted attractions have to put their legally safe spins on our favorite horror icons, like “hockey mask killer” or “creepy burn knife man”, and one can’t necessarily blame them considering how competitive the haunt game can be. However, Pittsburgh, PA’s ScareHouse has gone above and beyond the call to action by partnering with mega-production house Legendary to bring two of Michael Dougherty’s petrifying properties to their interactive attractions: KRAMPUS and TRICK ‘R TREAT!

  • “AQUARIUS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When AQUARIUS debuted earlier this year, positing itself as a genre-friendly lead-in to HANNIBAL’s third season, this writer took a shine to the show. It wasn’t the greatest procedural on television, but the characters were interesting, the writing went into curious directions and the Manson element brought a sense of perpetual horror to the show. But nevertheless, there always felt something off about AQUARIUS upon broadcast, almost as if the show was struggling to find its voice even though there appeared to be a great amount of creative freedom on display. However, upon revisiting the show on Blu-ray, where every episode is now offered in extended, unrated editions, and suddenly, it’s almost like watching an entirely new show, as AQUARIUS is clearly a premium cable show stuck in the format of a broadcast network program.

  • Exclusive Clip: “SLEEPY HOLLOW” Blu-ray Clip Brings Practical Life to The Pied Piper

    ,

    Following the loss of THE FOLLOWING, HANNIBAL, and CONSTANTINE all sadly out of the picture, horror programming on network television has been dwindling. However, the shows that remain are still quite strong, with SLEEPY HOLLOW (starring Chainsaw Award-nominee Nicole Beharie) offering a second season last year that was met with stronger reviews and solid ratings. Now, with the third season on the horizon and the second season hitting Blu-ray tomorrow as a part of Fox Home Entertainment’s Holiday Collection, FANGORIA has an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette clip from the High Def set that shows off how they achieved one of the show’s most eerie antagonists: The Pied Piper!

  • Q&A: Actor Gethin Anthony talks Charles Manson and “AQUARIUS”, Season One

    ,

    There’s few real-life figures that must be as intimidating to portray as notorious cult leader Charles Manson, whose psychological and physical torment lead to some of the most graphic murders of the 20th Century. Yet few tackle the chilling character with the gusto of one-time GAME OF THRONES star Gethin Anthony, who embodies Manson in all of his wicked ways on NBC’s intense and dark series, AQUARIUS. With AQUARIUS now making its way to home video, now with more violence, sex and foul language that was cut from broadcast, FANGORIA caught up with the versatile actor to talk Manson, music and the grim eventualities that await AQUARIUS…

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Cannibal Films!

    ,,

    No matter how jaded horror fans can be at times, there’s little denying the satisfaction true horror hounds feel in the return of cannibal fare in the genre.

  • Flesh and Blood: “INNOCENT BLOOD” [NSFW]

    ,,,,,

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!
