  • Exclusive: “POLTERGEIST” (2015) Deleted Scene Offers Icky Eeriness

    ,

    Although calling a remake “divisive” is essentially par for the course nowadays, few ever get to the point of discussion that POLTERGEIST (2015) had upon release in late May. Going off a film that is essential to the genre, POLTERGEIST (2015) was going to come under scrutiny in almost any scenario, even if the film sported strong performances and stronger than expected scares. Now, with the film gearing up for its home media release, FANGORIA is offering fans an exclusive ominous deleted scene from POLTERGEIST (2015), which you can see below!

  • Week of Wes: “A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET”

    ,,

    When talking about the work and legacy of Wes Craven, where does one begin? For many, the logical starting point would be Craven’s shocking years in horror exploitation, such as LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT or THE HILLS HAVE EYES. But when you’re talking about the influence of a horror maestro whose career spanned over 40 years, where else should you begin than with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET?

  • Stream to Scream: “MOCKINGBIRD”

    ,,

    When watching a film like MOCKINGBIRD, which essentially plays as a found footage home invasion film constructed like a puzzlebox, a question arises in the head of the viewer: if a film commits so many cinematic crimes yet remains effortlessly gripping, can one consider it good? Make no mistake, even the most predictable moments of MOCKINGBIRD were tense, scary and even a bit unsettling. But for every moment that highlights the glorious aspects of using a found footage perspective, there is an equal moment of logical flaw, inconsistency and an overall problematic narrative to cancel it out. It’s an interesting dynamic, even if for the wrong reasons, and it almost feels as if MOCKINGBIRD is too tied to minimalism for its own good, even though the minimalism is what makes the film terrifying.

  • “UNTIL DAWN” (Video Game Review)

    ,,

    Before I get into this review, I should at least be forward about one thing: I’ve been out of the gaming loop for a long time. Not out of a lack of interest; video games have long been a part of my life and the myriad commercials for new releases piques my interest as much as the next gamer. However, this writer’s workload has been way too busy for way too long to really be able to focus and appreciate a video game that takes hours upon hours to finish. Yet when I caught wind of UNTIL DAWN, a Supermassive Games Production from the minds of Glass Eye Pix cohorts Graham Reznick, this writer broke his dry spell as this game would be worthy of my undivided attention.

  • Q&A: Director Josh Forbes talks “CONTRACTED: PHASE II”

    ,

    One of the more gruesome horror offerings of the last few years, CONTRACTED certainly raised a stir among fans of indie horror upon its release in late 2013. The film spread like wildfire over streaming services such as Netflix, and the divisive body horror flick rode a solid wave of momentum (and impressive VOD numbers) to CONTRACTED: PHASE II. Continuing the story exactly where the first film left off, director Josh Forbes looks to up the ante with the second film to make a bigger, badder follow-up than anyone could anticipate, and with FANGORIA screening the film in NYC this Tuesday, we caught up with Forbes to talk PHASE II, body horror and his future in fright fare…
