  • Announcement: Regarding Michael Gingold, Bill Mohalley and FANGORIA’s Future

    ,

    When I started interning for FANGORIA nearly four years ago, the first person this writer met at the company was Michael Gingold. With a hearty handshake and a smile, Mike welcomed me to the office and brand that would forever change my professional career. In the years afterwards, he became my mentor, my colleague, my editor and, most importantly, my friend. And, without a shadow of a doubt, he was the heart of FANGORIA Magazine for longer than I’ve been alive.

  • Grindhouse Releasing Unleashes “CAT IN THE BRAIN” on Blu-ray this Summer!

    ,

    If you ask a dozen horror fans about which splattery option from Lucio Fulci’s ouevre was their favorite, you would probably receive twelve different answers. Luckily, with boutique Blu-ray labels doing their due diligence, even the most obscure and shocking Fulci flicks have found their way to a whole new generation of horror heads. Now, Grindhouse Releasing- who previously did right by the filmmaker with their astounding release of THE BEYOND- is bringing one of Fulci’s bloodiest, most insane terror titles to Blu-ray: 1990’s CAT IN THE BRAIN!

  • NY/NJ! Win A Mondo LP at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers “PET SEMATARY” Screening Next Week!

    ,

    When it comes to Stephen King adaptations, very few resonate with as much creepy purpose as PET SEMATARY, Mary Lambert’s terrifying take on grief, loss, resurrection and consequence. But as much as the film can inspire goosebumps with the likes of Undead Gage or Zelda, the film is equally notable for its sinister soundtrack. Of course, The Ramones’ title track from the film broke big in a way that few horror anthems ever have, but Elliot Goldenthal’s score adds that extra taste of Southern Gothic terror to the proceedings as well. Luckily for NY/NJ horrorheads, Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers is not only offering the chance to catch PET SEMATARY on the big screen next week, but one luckily attendee will be going home with Mondo’s PET SEMATARY vinyl LP!

  • Nicolas Winding Refn Announces ‘Remake Trilogy’ with Vincent Price, Giallo Classics!

    ,

    For this writer, one of the most highly anticipated horror offerings of 2016 is Nicolas Winding Refn’s THE NEON DEMON, which has already polarized audiences at the typically genre-unfriendly Cannes Film Festival. Hitting theaters next month, it will be Refn’s first tried-and-true entry into the horror genre, even if his filmography has long touched upon the themes and atmosphere of horror, but with the news breaking last week, it’s sure to not be his last. That’s because- in addition to his previously announced MANIAC COP remake- Refn has added two more horror classics to his slate of upcoming remakes on which the demented Danish filmmaker will serve as executive producer, according to Deadline.

  • FANGO Flashback: “PRISON”

    ,,

    For longtime readers of FANGORIA.com, this writer’s affection for the work of Renny Harlin has been well-documented. With genuinely awesome cinematic offerings such as MINDHUNTERS, DEEP BLUE SEA, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART IV, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, DIE HARD 2 and CLIFFHANGER under his belt, few directors can capture the spirit of popcorn entertainment better than Harlin. Even his cinematic missteps- FORD FAIRLANE, DEVIL’S PASS and EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING- are perhaps hobbled by their own ambition, and the fact that they still are fairly entertaining in their own right is a testament to Harlin’s work as a filmmaker. Yet unfortunately, too few horror hounds have seen one of Harlin’s legitimately best terror titles: the 1988 haunting thriller PRISON.

  • Transgressive Terror Attraction “DYSTOPIA” Frightens Up N.J., U.K. Experiences!

    ,

    Considering their growing popularity among more adventurous and daring horror audiences, it’s no wonder why the cult-like atmosphere of extreme, immersive haunts is becoming an art form in and of itself. Of course, one of the most controversial figures in that arena would be Russ McKamey, whose McKamey Manor and other full-contact haunt experiences have lead to protests, regional bans and psychological scars for the unprepared. Following his exile from his successful, Long Island-based haunt, McKamey has teamed with NY horror collective Fringe Horror Theatre to create his latest immersive experience, DYSTOPIA, which has finally found a pair of venues daring enough to bring it to life.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Jim Gillespie’s Award-Winning Short Film, “JOYRIDE”!

    ,,

    In the wild world of Hollywood, there are numerous dream archetypes by which most filmmakers hope to find themselves eventually inhabiting. For some, it’s that one’s screenplay reaches the right person on the right day at the right time, launching them into a career not unlike Quentin Tarantino or Shane Black. For others, it’s the path more frequently taken, especially as video hosting has become the norm: a filmmaker directs a short, it gets seen by the right people, and the next thing they know, they’re running full-speed on the path of becoming the next go-to studio director. And while that dream may not be a complete fantasy- just ask genre directors such as Andres Muschietti, Fede Alvarez or David Sanberg-, the pure glut of short films on the web and in festivals nowadays has turned those chances into those akin to hitting the lottery.
