  • Exclusive: “HOLIDAYS” Director Gary Shore on Charlie Cox’s Excised “DRACULA UNTOLD” Role!

    ,

    Over the past two years, the name “Charlie Cox” has gone from up-and-coming leading man to full-blown household name, having played the title character in Marvel & Netflix’s immensely popular DAREDEVIL series as well as one of the more memorable turns on BOARDWALK EMPIRE.  However, while Cox has yet to take a genre credit to his name, there was one time where he almost was a part of a major studio horror effort: Gary Shore’s DRACULA UNTOLD, where Cox was slated to play a vampiric version of the Roman Emperor Caligula before the role was left on the cutting room floor. While talking to FANGORIA about HOLIDAYS prior to its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival last night, Shore revealed Cox’s involvement in DRACULA UNTOLD, and how the film’s inclusion in the Universal Monsters Universe shifted the narrative…

  • “RINGS” To Usher In New Halloween Release Staple?

    ,

    As those keeping their eyes on the trades well know, CinemaCon in Las Vegas is currently shaking up the industry with breaking news at a breakneck pace. While most of the horror news at CinemaCon has been somewhat old hat with the most excitement surrounding footage shown from THE CONJURING 2, one interesting update comes in the form of the long-gestating reboot RINGS, the first U.S. production in the J-Horror franchise over a decade from filmmaker F. Javier Gutierrez, which hints that Paramount may be doubling down on the film’s future.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Nine Inch Nail’s “BROKEN” Short Film!

    ,,

    For over twenty years, Peter Christopherson’s BROKEN has been an eerie- and, for the most part, elusive- piece of rock ‘n’ roll history. Part music video, Part horror art film, this NSFW companion piece to Nine Inch Nail’s BROKEN EP has never had an official release, and to this day even remains somewhat of a difficult find on the internet (at least via legal means). Yet when one does find the 20-minute film, and has the stomach to sit through it all, it’s safe to say that the end result is something shocking, scary and simply unforgettable.

  • Guest Editorial: Grammy-Winning Producer John Congleton’s Top 10 Fright Films!

    ,,

    Yesterday, FANGORIA reported on St. Vincent’s Annie Clark joining the all-female horror anthology XX for her directorial debut. However, she isn’t the only one in the St. Vincent camp that’s over-the-moon for horror: Grammy Award-winning music producer John Congleton is a huge horror fanatic in his own right, having had worked with fright-friendly artist Marilyn Manson, contributed to the BAD KIDS GO TO HELL soundtrack and even instilled an eerie edge in his latest album (via John Congleton and the Nighty Nite) UNTIL THE HORROR GOES.

    ,

    It seems almost like forever ago that XX, the horror anthology from XYZ Films featuring an all-female filmmaker line-up, was announced.

Now, the latest update comes with both good news and bad news: the bad news is that AMERICAN PSYCHO helmer Mary Harron has also departed the project, but the good news is that XX will feature the directorial debut of St. Vincent musician Annie Clark.

  • “BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    It’s a damn shame that BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR doesn’t quite get the same respect as its predecessor. While the film doesn’t quite have the same pacing or script strength as RE-ANIMATOR as well as some other key elements (Barbara Crampton is dearly missed), the film is way better than its reputation would allow, which is even more impressive considering it’s Brian Yuzna’s sophomore directorial outing. And with some truly fantastic FX set pieces, solid horror comedy and a stellar cast at their behest, BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR is the kind of underrated sequel that deserves to be found again… and luckily, thanks to Arrow Video, horrorheads will have the opportunity to do so in its best home video release to date.
