    “RPG: REAL PLAYING GAME” (Film Review)

    By now, the general conceit of RPG: REAL PLAYING GAME is oh-so-familiar to genre fans: a group of strangers are forced to kill each other in an interactive game run by a sinister entity. Whether it be BATTLE ROYALE, THE HUNGER GAMES, THE RUNNING MAN, GAMER or the multitude of other films running with that concept, RPG does have select differences in its execution that makes it stand out more to the horror crowd. But even despite some ingenious flourishes, interesting character drama and the constraints of its budget, the conceptual familiarity is the least of RPG’s problems.

    “COLLECTOR”, “SAW” Sequel Duo to ‘Recalibrate’ “HALLOWEEN” Franchise

    If you’ve been an ardent horror fan for the past decade, you’re likely familiar with the names Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. The screenwriting duo that brought the genre every SAW sequel since SAW 4 as well as THE COLLECTOR (and it’s sequel), the FEAST films and PIRANHA 3DD. And while the duo have found themselves attached to many projects since, there’s none as prolific as the title announced today, as The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Melton and Dunstan will be taking on writing duties for the next entry into the HALLOWEEN franchise.

    Fango Flashback: “ALTERED STATES”

    There are many words to describe filmmaker Ken Russell: brilliant, provocative, enigmatic, self-destructive. But if there’s one word that you cannot attribute to Russell, it would be “accessible,” as the filmmaker took pride in challenging audiences around the globe with his particularly unsubtle brand of cinema. Yet while Russell has flirted with mainstream appeal occasionally, specifically with TOMMY and CRIMES OF PASSION, the closest he’s ever done so in the horror genre is likely the trippy and terrifying ALTERED STATES.

    Yesterday, FANGORIA offered a first look at Gil Kenan’s POLTERGEIST remake, produced by Sam Raimi and with a stellar cast (including 2015 Chainsaw Nominee Jared Harris).

    Women in Horror Month: Debra Hill, the Mother of “HALLOWEEN”

    While February is commonly considered to the Black History Month, genre fans have also adopted the month for another cause: Women in Horror Month, recognizing and celebrating the often underappreciated women who help make the genre what it is today. While by no means demeaning the work of men within the genre, Women in Horror Month asks horror fans to turn their eyes beyond just the scream queens and final girls, but rather to the hard-working women who struggle to make great work specifically for the genre they love. Therefore, FANGORIA is celebrating Women in Horror Month by shining a light on some of the most instrumental women to the development of horror as we know it…
