    Event Report: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE LIVE!” at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival

    From everything I could gather out of last year’s Stanley Film Festival, one of the most fun and engaging events was none other than the live rendition of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, Glenn McQuaid and Larry Fessenden’s series of macabre radio plays. Ripe with excellent writing, strong performances and the live spectacle of foley work and musical accompaniment, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE was the highlight of FANGORIA’s coverage last year at Stanley Film Festival. So with high expectations in mind, this writer made sure the live TALES was at the top of his agenda at the Stanley Film Festival, especially once I heard both Barbara Crampton and Leon Vitali would be among the performers.

    Not too long ago, FANGORIA revealed the exclusive trailer for John Portanova’s VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH, an independent horror picture that proudly puts the North American monster front and center.

    For the more faithful readers here at FANGORIA, one of the most surreal and anticipated projects as of late has been BONE TOMAHAWK, S. Craig Zahler’s tale of rugged men, savage cannibals and the western landscape in which they inhabit. And while the film has been acquired (via Magnolia) and shot, the film has finally debuted its inaugural poster, setting its all-star cast against a blood-red sun.

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 5″ (TV Review)

    It may be pulpy, trashy and all sorts of melodramatic, but for every amazing practical effect or absolutely reprehensible act of terror, SALEM makes good for those aspects week by week. Having said that, it’s been a great joy watching SALEM so meticulously orchestrating its second season, as the characters and the conflicts have been sharper and more unpredictable than ever. But there is a piece of the puzzle that just won’t fit, and now, with the season approaching its midway point, the show better start finding a way to properly use John Alden this season.

    “MAD MAX” (Blu-ray Review)

    To call the MAD MAX franchise “diverse” would be one hell of an understatement. While all the MAD MAX films exist plausibly in the same demented, post-apocalyptic universe, the changes in tone and content has been in leaps and bounds. From the insane road games of THE ROAD WARRIOR to the cartoonish pulp of BEYOND THUNDERDOME to the breathtaking fever dream of FURY ROAD, George Miller’s incredible universe has always felt as twisted, unique limbs attached to a singular body. And atop of that body is the head where it all began, with the simplistic, rough-and-tumble MAD MAX.

    “SUN CHOKE” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    To be honest, the particular brand of psychological horror that SUN CHOKE provides isn’t necessarily going to be for everyone. On one hand, it’s a unique and nightmarish look into a young woman whose struggle for internal and external freedom leads her to utter darkness and depravity. On the other hand, it’s a often-disorienting and logic-bending slow burn that requires patience and more than a little cinematic masochism. In any case, however, SUN CHOKE is an undeniably surreal and disturbing vision, with a rare aesthetic that will likewise please fans of both gruesome fare and art house horror.

    Remake Roulette: “LIFEFORCE”, “THE HOWLING” and More…

    Let’s face it: as long as the film business includes the word “business” in its title, there will always be remakes. At this point, it’s not even worth it to get upset; after all, the original will always continue to exist, even in the shadow of a remake or reboot. So with that said, it’s time to address the newest round of remake announcements.

    “THE HALLOW” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    Once in a while, the horror genre just needs a damn good monster movie. Thanks to trends in studio horror, fright fans are often saddled with gritty exploitation-adjacent genre films, minimalist ghost stories or psychologically taxing tales of psychopathia on a regular basis. So when a movie like THE HALLOW comes along, to call it refreshing would be an understatement, especially one as effectively scary and gorgeous as Corin Hardy’s creature feature.

    Exclusive Poster: William Malone is back with “THALLIUM’S BOX”

    Out of all the esteemed contributors to MASTERS OF HORROR, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999) director William Malone is among the most underrated. The director’s striking visual eye, undeniable genre experience and understanding of what really scares people is inimitable. Yet with almost 7 years since his last time in the director’s chair, the genre has been missing Malone for far too long, which means that his recent announcement to Kickstart his latest endeavor, THALLIUM’S BOX, is an exciting potential prospect. And now, FANGORIA has an exclusive first look at THALLIUM’S BOX with an alternate poster from artist Christian Francis, which you can see below!
