    ,,,

    With two months of terrifying tales under their belt, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is only getting started with their nightmarish audio short story series. And while Clay McLeod Chapman & Hanna Cheek have already brought tales of haunted records, cannibalistic romance, Lovecraftian luridness and macabre motherhood to daring listeners, the FANGORIA Podcast Network’s second original series offers another spine-tingling story this week. And lest we bury the lead this time around, Clay gives a command performance in the latest slice of PUMPKIN PIE, entitled “Michelle.”

  • FANGO Flashback: “BODY BAGS”

    ,,

    For any horror fan, the ‘90s can be a point of contention in the genre’s history. While the decade has produced some truly excellent fright fare, the decade didn’t quite find a popular groove in the genre until the post-SCREAM slasher boom, with many of the successive entries falling upon retrospective scrutiny. Yet potentially most damning about the ‘90s to fright fans was that many of the ‘80s horror masters found themselves marginalized and alienated by the studio system. And it was with that disdain that John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper fled to Showtime to set up shop with for televised terror, only to wind up with one of their most underrated titles to date: BODY BAGS.

  • Stream to Scream: “KRISTY”

    ,,

    When a movie finds a comfortable spot on a studio shelf, more than likely it’s the sign of a troubled production. Whether it’s a hard film to sell, a tough script to crack or any number of legal issues, there’s rarely a film that comes out unscathed once it’s pulled from a set release date. But a negative preconception doesn’t necessarily equate to a low-quality film, and in the case of KRISTY (a/k/a SATANIC), which was unceremoniously debuted on the Lifetime Channel after nearly 2 years on the shelf, is living proof that not all rocky roads lead to disappointing places.

  • Hammer Horror to Receive The Documentary Treatment from Diabolique Films

    ,

    Before this writer became the Web Content Manager (and later, Web Editor & Managing Editor) for FANGORIA, I had the pleasure of cutting my teeth in the horror journalism world for a macabre magazine entitled Diabolique. Serving as their Web Editor from May to October of 2013, I definitely knew that there would be an interesting future for such a bold, classy publication upon my departure as there simply was no other magazine like it. Lo and behold, Diabolique’s ventures since have included the upcoming return of H.G. Lewis, entitled BLOODMANIA, and now, a full-length feature documentary entitled HAMMER HORROR: THE WARNER BROS YEARS.

  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan joins “THE WALKING DEAD’ as infamous villain Negan

    ,

    To be completely honest, there is rarely a show that can make it to six seasons and offering such compelling television as THE WALKING DEAD, even if the most recent episode wasn’t as exhilarating or contemplative as the ones that came before it. Nevertheless, fans of THE WALKING DEAD comic have been waiting for the appearance of a certain someone ever since Rick Grimes and his group made it to Alexandria, and finally, we know exactly when we are going to meet the one and only Negan, and who will be filling his sadistic shoes.

  • In Memoriam: Gunnar Hansen, The Original Leatherface from “THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE”

    ,,

    An ugly, unfortunate fact that all horror fans have to face is the depressing nature of death. Even though we all live and breathe a genre that revolves around death, the truth is that death is a something we all have to face at one point or another. And in terms of the iconic filmmakers and actors who helped foster the love of horror in us all, the next ten to twenty years will remind us of the fact in the worst way.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Podcasts Crossover on this “ALIEN”-centric Episode of “THE RANTS MACABRE”!

    ,,

    With an cinematic entry in every decade since the 1970s, the ALIEN franchise has truly been one of the most discussed, debated and dissected film series in the history of horror. With directors such as Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Paul W.S. Anderson (c’mon, guys, he did EVENT HORIZON!) offering entries of varying reputation, there will nary be two fright fans who feel exactly the same about the ALIEN franchise. And with that in mind, THE RANTS MACABRE offers four differing opinions in the first part of their ALIEN episodes, featuring a crossover appearance from Dawn & Jen of the Women in Caskets Podcast!

    That’s right: THE RANTS MACABRE hosts Darren & Mindy join the Women in Caskets to cover the first two entries in the ALIEN franchise, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror film ALIEN and James Cameron’s action-packed sequel ALIENS. The frightful four gets into every nook and cranny of these horror offerings, from Xenomorphs to behind-the-scenes details and the indomitable Ellen Ripley. You can check FREE episode below, and you can revisit ALIEN/ALIENS on DVD/Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

  • Nicolas Winding Refn’s “THE NEON DEMON” Acquired by Amazon

    ,

    Two weeks ago, this writer wrote a Deaditorial about the problematic economic relationship between streaming services and the horror genre. And while that relationship is still a bit of a concern to this writer, news broke over the weekend exclusively via Variety that might point at least one service going in a genre-friendly direction as Amazon Studios has acquired Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated horror film THE NEON DEMON.
