  • “THE X-FILES: Season 10, Episode 2” (TV Review)

    ,,

    When THE X-FILES was announced to return for a six-episode revival in early 2015, fans didn’t quite know what those six episodes would entail. Due to the limited number of installments, some automatically assumed the reboot would be akin to a mini-series with one storyline that would warrant the return of Mulder and Scully. Yet in the reboot’s second episode, entitled “Founder’s Mutation,” fans learned that wouldn’t necessarily be the case, even though the episode did present pertinent information about our heroes. Rather, the “monster of the week” framework would return this week after the mythology-building first episode, offering a nostalgic return-to-form whilst continuing the revival series’ noted mean-streak.

  • “JACK’S BACK” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    At face value, JACK’S BACK has all the trademarks of an ’80s horror/thriller: a charming lead, supernaturally-connected twins, prostitute murder and a melodramatic rock ballad kicking off both credit sequences. Hell, even the stylistic flourishes from director Rowdy Herrington (of ROAD HOUSE fame) are unmistakably representative of the era and genre. However, in spite of those timely details, JACK’S BACK is a bit more effective than it’s unassuming reputation may hold, taking advantage of its L.A. setting, high-concept narrative and solid ensemble, lead by an excellent James Spader in a rare dual role.

  • Stream to Scream: “THE VEIL”

    ,,

    THE VEIL is quite a curious movie to behold, largely in that the filmmaking in and of itself tells a story within the story of the film. That story, of course, is a film that was originally found footage that- through a variety of means- has been changed to become a straightforward narrative… and yet, can’t quite give up the ghost of its original framing device. It’s a film where so much works from top to bottom and yet there’s something essential that couldn’t quite make the film click, and the rewriting/editing process to find that element feels ever apparent. And yet, because so much of the film works, THE VEIL isn’t quite a film to dismiss as you actively root for the project find greatness all the way up until the credits roll.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE ENTITY”

    ,,

    In the grand scheme of haunting films, there is nothing quite like THE ENTITY. While it’s aesthetics might have been replicated in the past (particularly, the INSIDIOUS films appear to be particularly inspired by THE ENTITY), no other film comparably tackles such subject matter in a stylized, mainstream execution, let alone in a manner that feels visceral and terrifying. And not so surprisingly, perhaps the lack of thematically similar material helps the 33-year-old-film resonate as an intense experience in this day-and-age that one can appreciate more with each subsequent viewing.

  • “THE X-FILES: Season 10, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    During the nine-season original run of THE X-FILES, much could be said about the men behind the curtain, but more often than not, there was a seeming benign nature to them. As monsters and extraterrestrials would encounter Mulder, Scully and Co. week after week, the casualties of the investigations often were rarely targeted; rather, they were often innocent victims via chance encounters or government agents whose lives were cost via incompetence. Yet now, in this six-episode mini-series events, THE X-FILES asserts a different perspective on the puppet masters, and one that is much more misanthropic than ever before. And while few could have guessed that THE X-FILES would return with a mean-streak, fewer can deny that it works for the show, raising the stakes for our heroes while reminding the audience that in this limited run, the truth is closer than ever before… and those who discover it are not safe.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Limited Release Film!

    ,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to the Best Limited Release category, there were several features that were so close to making the cut, including Corin Hardy’s THE HALLOW and the horror anthology TALES OF HALLOWEEN making it all the way to the last phase of voting. And, of course, this category would be looking very differently had IT FOLLOWS remained on its intended limited release schedule earlier in 2015. Nevertheless, FANGORIA was able to sift through all the excellent terror titles of this past year and nominate our five favorites for your consideration.

    Debuting at Toronto International Film Festival and quickly becoming one of the most buzzed-about festival titles of 2015, FEBRUARY is slated to scare audiences later this year from A24 Pictures (who, with THE WITCH and GREEN ROOM on their slate, are killing it in 2016).

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 More Icons Who Should Be in The FANGORIA Hall of Fame

    ,,

    Unlike most Halls of Fame, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame is not built by committee but rather by the fans themselves. With voting open as a part of the Chainsaw Awards ballot, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame has seen a variety of horror icons inducted, from FX masters to Final Girls to even iconic zombies.. However, with only so many spots open every year since the Chainsaw Awards’ humble beginnings in 1992, that does mean there are a fair share of deserving horror figures who have yet to have the honor of induction.
