    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 1″ (TV Review)

    To this writer, there’s a certain satisfaction in knowing the direction that BATES MOTEL will eventually go, and the, dare we say, change in Norman’s voice that’s been teased in A&E’s previews for season three. But, BATES MOTEL still has to get there, and  I have to give A&E credit in that the first episode of the third season is much better written than most of season two, especially in terms of the oh-so-uncomfortable approach to Norman and Norma’s familial relationship. And with strong writing comes strong performances, and luckily, strong direction, which all makes “A Death in the Family” a solid lead in with a promise of something much creepier.

    “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE” (1962) (UK Blu-ray Review)

    Now, I’ll be up front: THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE is not a horror movie. However, the 1962 John Frankenheimer film is as close as a political thriller could be to being a horror film and a believable drama, carrying elements that are familiar to genre fans, including PSYCHO, THE DEAD ZONE and ROSEMARY’S BABY. And it also has the benefit of being genuinely scary at points, and thanks to a befitting Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video, the time is ripe for revisiting this intense and unnerving classic.

    Q&A: “WOLFCOP” himself Leo Fafard Speaks!

    With the amount of campy throwbacks hitting the market recently, those films are only as effective as those filling the shoes of their main attraction. This is especially true for WOLFCOP, a film in which the human aspect has to be as endearing and fun enough to keep the audience engaged until we get to the more monstrous action. Luckily, that film has Canadian actor Leo Fafard filling the role of the beastly constable, delivering a committed and frequently hilarious performance both in and out of make-up. FANGORIA recently caught up with Fafard about his inaugural leading role as well as keeping his humanity as the WOLFCOP…

    Malcolm McDowell Leads Rob Zombie’s “31”

    Ever since appearing in Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN, Malcolm McDowell has become one of the director’s favorite collaborators, going lengths to bring McDowell back for HALLOWEEN II and featured the actor in his infamous CSI: MIAMI episode. And while budgetary and time constrictions led McDowell to not appear in THE LORDS OF SALEM, Zombie has recently confirmed that McDowell will be playing a major role in his upcoming film 31.

    For Your Consideration: Producer Luke Sharpe Wants Your Vote for “HOUSEBOUND”

    With only 24 hours left to vote in the 22nd edition of the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, FANGORIA has tried to give every nominee their day in the sun. Yet at the end of the day, each nominee is only as strong as the fans who have seen them, and in this regards, some truly special work has gone unnoticed. However, for the first time ever, FANGORIA gave our nominees the opportunity this year to campaign actively here on FANGORIA.com to state their case for their film or performance, and the good folks from XLrator Media responded in a big way to rally behind their nominee, Gerard Johnstone’s HOUSEBOUND!

    Have the “INSIDE” Duo Found Their “LEATHERFACE”?

    Though the sentiment in the horror community has been unsurprisingly negative towards the idea of another TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie following the dreadful (yet successful) TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, the idea that the supremely talented Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be guiding the film is always somewhat of a reassurance. But even that aspect haven’t stopped fans from rallying against a Leatherface origin story; after all, wasn’t the character at his scariest when the closest thing we had to backstory was a shot of a big metal door? Nevertheless, the show is still going on, and now, according to The Wrap, Bustillo and Maury may have found the most infamous member of the Sawyer clan.

    Q&A: Director Lowell Dean on “WOLFCOP” and… “WOLFCOP IN SPACE”?!

    With a title like WOLFCOP, you’re either in or you’re out. Luckily for fans who enjoy their horror with a side of super-gory camp, WOLFCOP goes above and beyond to deliver for those who join his pack of growing international fans. And at the forefront of the joke is WOLFCOP writer/director Lowell Dean, whose love for the character and the concept bleeds through every frame of the film… and sometimes bleeds all over the sets as well. On the eve of WOLFCOP’s U.S. home video release, FANGORIA caught up with Dean to talk WOLFCOP, WOLFCOP 2 and… WOLFCOP IN SPACE?!…

    Reitman, Aykroyd Team For ‘Ghostcorp'; Expanding “GHOSTBUSTERS” Franchise

    There are few upcoming genre films as divisive as the upcoming all-female GHOSTBUSTERS remake from Paul Feig, which essentially would discontinue the existing GHOSTBUSTERS storyline and start from scratch with a greater eye on horror. Yet many eyebrows were raised when word surfaced that the likes of Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum had been speaking to Sony about GHOSTBUSTERS, and that Aykroyd still believed the previous GHOSTBUSTERS films could be expanded upon on the big screen. And as it turns out, those eyebrows were not raised in vain as Deadline has reported that Sony will be teaming with Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd to develop Ghostcorp, a production branch solely devoted to expanding the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise, including with a male-centric counterpart to Feig’s all-female flick.

    “EVIL DEAD” Series Adds Lucy Lawless; Becomes Full-Fledged Raimi Reunion

    Just when you thought that you couldn’t anticipate Starz’s EVIL DEAD series more, this news has to break: Starz has confirmed Blastr‘s report earlier today that inimitable geek goddess Lucy Lawless has joined the cast of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. Even better, Lawless seems to be playing Ash’s foil, as Starz describes her as “a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent evil outbreaks, but the only problem is that she believes that Ash is the cause of it all.”

    AMC Announces Two Season Order for “WALKING DEAD” Spin-off Series

    There’s no denying that THE WALKING DEAD is a massive and now iconic piece of living, breathing horror history. Going from an independently produced comic to the biggest series in cable history, THE WALKING DEAD officially moved into behemoth territory when it was announced that AMC would be producing a spin-off side series, formerly entitled THE WALKING DEAD: COBALT. Now, however, AMC is doubling down on Robert Kirkman’s vision for the property, as they’ve announced that the now-unnamed series has been ordered for two seasons up front, beginning with a six-episode first season debuting this summer with a day-and-date premiere around the globe.

    Exclusive: Which Corman Alumni Boarded Season Two of “SALEM”?

    While the world of horror on television has changed so radically in the past few years, no show has been quite as much of a dark horse as WGN America’s SALEM. Epic in scope and pushing the TV-MA rating to its limits, as this writer has seen for himself, the show came out of nowhere to become one of the most buzzworthy terror titles on TV. And while FANGORIA has some amazing coverage coming up from our Louisiana set visit over the last weekend ahead of the show’s April 5th return date, FANGORIA was able to pry out some especially excellent news from show co-creator Adam Simon as to who will be helming episodes in the upcoming second season.
