    For all the scare fare popping up all over the world, one shouldn’t forget the horror renaissance happening in Canada.

  • Q&A: Producer Richard Turner talks “GNAW”!

    ,

    As both horror fans and filmmakers can tell you, Colorado has a genre film culture unlike anywhere else as of late. Home to the Stanley Film Festival, the Mile High Horror Film Festival, the Telluride Horror Show and recently, the shooting location for Quentin Tarantino’s bloody western thriller THE HATEFUL EIGHT, Colorado truly has fright fare running through its veins, and it’ll continue that tradition into GNAW, the new film from Unreal Media and Wrecking Ball Pictures. With AN AMERICAN TERROR’s Haylar Garcia at the helm, the film offers up a solid cast that includes Sally Kirkland (TWO EVIL EYES), Kyle Gass (TENACIOUS D), Chris Johnson (CURSED) and Penelope Mitchell (HEMLOCK GROVE). With the film now in production, FANGORIA caught up with Unreal Media’s Richard Turner to talk any and everything GNAW…

  • Exclusive Announcement, Q&A: Joe Hill, IDW Publishing team for “TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE” Scriptbook!

    ,,,

    As many frustrated horrorheads can tell you, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE has never quite gotten the respect that it deserves. So when it was announced in 2013 that the property, with four excellent seasons and a beyond-excellent anthology film to its name, was going to get a reboot from the likes of Joe Hill, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, fright fans were understandably elated. Alas, despite a buzzworthy pilot, the series never quite came to fruition, but with an ultimately exciting silver lining, as Hill and his LOCKE AND KEY cohorts Gabriel Rodriguez and Chris Ryall would adapt his TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE stories into comic books via IDW Publishing.

  • 7th Annual GWAR-B-Q Announces 2016 Line-Up!

    ,

    When it comes to the bloody crossover between heavy metal and horror, few can compete with the mighty, macabre GWAR.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD” (1990)

    ,,

    As surprising as it may sound, George A. Romero has a fairly impressive number of solid remakes to his filmography; while a stinker like 2008’s DAY OF THE DEAD may attempt to spoil the bunch, remakes of THE CRAZIES, DAWN OF THE DEAD and, of course, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD have done well by their predecessor. In the case of the latter, the film at least knew it had the original director’s seal of approval, with longtime collaborator Tom Savini behind the camera and Romero himself producing. But even in a time before the “remake” stigma of the mid-to-late-’00s, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990) does a fairly great job of honoring the original film while ultimately offering a different approach, one that underplays some of the social commentary of the ‘68 film while modernizing the story for more demanding contemporary audiences.
