  • Nicolas Winding Refn’s “THE NEON DEMON” Sets Release Date, Unveils New Poster!

    ,

    Who could have guessed that the summer of 2016 would end up offering more scare fare than blockbuster tentpoles? With films such as THE CONJURING 2, THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR, THE SHALLOWS, DON’T BREATHE, LIGHTS OUT, and THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER creeping into theaters, it seems that horror hounds will find more tricks and treats before Halloween this year, and now, you can add Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly-anticipated terror title THE NEON DEMON among the bunch, as the film has finally set a new poster and release date!

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Awesome ’90s Horror Films!

    ,,

    As someone who grew up watching the many horror films of the ’90s, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear the decade get so much flack for its contributions to the genre. Sure, the ’80s are a tough act to follow, considering how many phenomenal, practical FX-driven fright films were spawned during that time, but the ’90s has had its fair share of awesome scare fare, most of which are miles more memorable that the decades that have come since. Even the guilty pleasures of the ’90s- your DEEP BLUE SEAs and ANACONDAs and what-have-you- are much easier to defend than some of the stinkers of the ’80s! So with that on our macabre mind, FANGORIA has decided to list off ten absolutely awesome ’90s horror offerings for your creepy consideration!

  • “BITE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Since the heydey of body horror in the late ‘80s/ early ‘90s, the gruesome subgenre has resurfaced sporadically in recent times. As CGI becomes less of an industry standard among the low-budget horror realm, horror titles such as AMERICAN MARY, TUSK, and ANTIVIRAL have taken advantage of the power of practical FX work when applied to malevolent body modification. Yet while many of these films rely on surgery-gone-mad or flesh rotting away to the elements, few modern body horror offerings go truly beyond the pale for their main mutation. However, if Chad Archibald’s BITE is any indication, that tide could be turning in favor of the bold and ambitious side of the subgenre.

  • Stream to Scream: “THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD”

    ,,

    While horror anthologies may be one of the most debated subgenres out there, it’s unfortunate that Amicus- one of the seminal anthology producers of its time- is often left out of the conversation. Known best as their “portmanteau” productions, Amicus’ specific, often star-studded approach to anthology filmmaking is unique and rather fantastic, and yet they often find themselves absent from the discussions and listicles of the current horror landscape. Yet as Amicus becomes more accessible with each passing day with their inclusion on streaming and Blu-ray, the chances of their impressive anthology fare- such as TALES FROM THE CRYPT, DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS and THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD- becoming more pertinent to contemporary audiences grow with it.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vincent Price in Tim Burton & Rick Heinrichs’ “VINCENT”

    ,,

    As many horror icons as there may be in the lexicon of the genre- and there are many– I don’t think there is any as instantly recognizable and quite as beloved as Vincent Price. A brilliant performer in his own right, Price’s adoration of the horror genre went far beyond the projects he appeared in; in fact, to many, Price was as synonymous with the horror genre as ghosts and ghouls themselves. But while Price’s wit and class might never be replicated in the horror genre, there’s no doubt his influences spread far and wide, especially for his EDWARD SCISSORHANDS’ cohort Tim Burton.

  • Event Report: Texas Frightmare Weekend 2016

    ,

    Despite having worked with the event itself for months leading up to April 29th, I was in no way, shape or form quite prepared for Texas Frightmare Weekend 2016. I’ve been to conventions before, and huge ones at that- Walker Stalker Convention 2015, Weekend of Horrors, Chiller, and four years of New York Comic Con among them- but even those shows didn’t quite have as much passion and horror know-how in the air as the Dallas/Fort Worth-based event. And as exciting as it was to be a relatively small part of putting it all together, it was even more exciting to experience it up close and personal.

  • Become A Ghostbuster At Sony & BBQ Films’ Exclusive, Immersive “GHOSTBUSTERS” Event!

    ,

    One of my earliest introductions to the horror genre, in its many ways, shapes and forms, was undoubtedly through GHOSTBUSTERS. Whether it was the film itself, or perhaps the live stage show at Universal Studios Orlando, this writer remembers the universal appeal of GHOSTBUSTERS; hell, I’d argue most fright fans would jump through hoops for the chance to be a Ghostbuster themselves. And now, thirty two years after the film was released, partygoers and horrorheads will finally have their chance, as BBQ Films, the live theatrical event team behind the BEETLEJUICE Wedding and BLADE Rave experiences, is teaming with Sony Pictures to create a GHOSTBUSTERS event unlike any other!
