    Kevin Smith’s “TUSK” To Get Wide Release from A24

    Are you ready for Kevin Smith’s second (and very well last) foray into fright films? You very well may! His body horror, TUSK, has been streaming along since its unlikely conception on his podcast back in June of this year. However, the film, unable to make the intended premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival due to two extra days of necessary shooting, has thusly been acquired by A24 Films for a wide release in the third quarter of 2014. A24, which gave wide releases this year to SPRING BREAKERS and THE BLING RING, adds TUSK to an already genre-friendly 2014 slate, including the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring ENEMY and the Scarlett Johansson alien film UNDER THE SKIN.

    FANGORIA Flashback: “THEY LIVE”

    Would you bite the hand that feeds you? What if that hand belonged to an extraterrestrial force that controls your mind via consumerism? That’s the question on the mind of genre maestro John Carpenter in his satirical alien-infiltration thriller THEY LIVE, which is being screened for one week only for its 25th anniversary at New York City’s IFC Center (323 Avenue of the Americas at West 3rd Street) starting Friday, December 6. In commemoration of that anniversary, FANGORIA takes a look back at Carpenter’s hybrid of clever science fiction, intense horror and kick-ass action.

    Watch: Clooney, Dern and Sheen Attacked in “GRIZZLY II”

    One of the most curious “what if” films in horror history is GRIZZLY II: THE PREDATOR, the sequel to GRIZZLY that would have sent the man-eating bear to wreak havoc at a rock concert but ran out of money before production could be completed. However, bits and pieces of the film have found their way on the record—including from FANGO friend Barbie Wilde who speaks about her involvement on her website—but nothing quite as substantial as what I have stumbled upon today.

    “THE LAST DAYS ON MARS” (Movie Review)

    At this point in the history of science fiction film, there’s ironically little territory left to cover in space. There’s always the option to set familiar premises or characters in the infinite abyss, but these films can feel derivative, and despite taking place on faraway planets, they often don’t feel extraterrestrial aside from the digitally enhanced environments.
