  • Event Report: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” Live at Lincoln Center!

    ,,

    As any New Yorker can tell you, a 70-degree night in the middle of October is a fairly strange occurrence. But perhaps the peculiarly warm weather was fitting for a night such as October 20th, in which the good folks at Glass Eye Pix would be taking their eerie brand of radio plays to Lincoln Center for another live edition of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Yet even beyond a showcase for the varying degrees of audio terror that can come from the minds of filmmakers Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is such a special experience because it truly feels communal, with horror enthusiasts gathering en masse to witness the petrifying proceedings.

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Actor John C. McGinley on “STAN AGAINST EVIL”

    ,

    Despite likely being best known for his stellar comedic acting as well as roles in films such as PLATOON, POINT BREAK, and THE ROCK, actor John C. McGinley is no stranger to the horror genre. Whether it’s coming face-to-face with a living skeleton in SE7EN, hunting Ice-T in SURVIVING THE GAME, playing a distraught father in IDENTITY, or his upcoming role in THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, McGinley has proven himself adept at filling in a multitude of roles in many cinematic nightmares. Yet McGinley’s experience with comedy, drama, action, and horror will come in handy for his latest role, the titular character from STAN AGAINST EVIL, the new IFC series from THE SIMPSONS alumni Dana Gould. Luckily, FANGORIA was on the scene at New York Comic Con 2016, where McGinley shared a surprisingly candid and emotional insight into his experiences with and surrounding STAN AGAINST EVIL…

  • Contest: Win A “LITTLE SISTER” Goth Nun Costume!

    ,

    As most horror fans know, being a fan of the dark and demented often leads to being misunderstood, whether it’s by friends, family, or even society as a whole. As we grow older, we better define ourselves, but that love of horror and darkness never truly goes away. It’s exactly that dynamic that fuels LITTLE SISTER, the dark indie dramedy from director Zach Clark and producer Joe Swanberg, which follows a young nun who finds her inner goth. And with the film now out on VOD, Clark and star Addison Timlin have teamed to craft a unique Goth Nun costume just in time to turn one FANGORIA reader’s Halloween upside down!

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Nick Jongerius on “THE WINDMILL”, screening tonight for free in NYC!

    ,,

    Over the years, there’s been plenty of songs, poems, writings, and sayings surrounding the idea of “paying the devil his due.” For some, it’s all about karma and comeuppance, but for others, it’s something more spiritual, more biblical, and more sacrificial in nature, which is where Nick Jongerius’ disturbing Dutch horror offering THE WINDMILL comes in. And with XLrator and FANGORIA offering a free screening of THE WINDMILL tonight, this writer spoke to Jongerius about putting together this tale of sinners and slaughter…

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Writer/Producer Adam Simon talks “SALEM”

  • Brooklyn Horror Film Festival 2016: “PET” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Out of all the subgenres that reside within horror, this writer certainly has a very specific admiration for the “twisted love story.” As evident in films such as THE LOVED ONES, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3, FRANKENHOOKER, and HELLRAISER, stories that take the traditional ideas of romance and pull them towards the darkest, most demented extremes are some of the most heartfelt, imaginative, and outright transgressive horror stories to be told. By tapping into emotionally familiar territory and exploiting the very concepts we keep close to heart, twisted love stories tell inherently bold stories, and if a filmmaker can find a way to make these stories as fun as they are haunting, that’s cinematic magic in motion. And, as those who caught it at last week’s Brooklyn Horror Film Fest can attest, Carles Torrens’ PET captures that magic tenfold, offering a courtship tale that is as deranged as it is delightful.

  • Event Report: “THE REPOSITORY” VR Experience at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando!

    ,,

    As multimedia evolves, traditional outlets of horror entertainment adapt. When horror films come out in 3D, theaters reformat their screens to meet that demand. When horror television push the limits of standards and practices on television, the channels change their personal content standard from that very moment and beyond. And when Virtual Reality begins to change how fright fans experience horror, haunted attractions learn to incorporate VR as the next step in their evolution.
