    Drafthouse Acquires Marling/Steinfeld-led Thriller “THE KEEPING ROOM”

    Time and time again, the connection between the western and horror genres becomes more apparent by every succeeding entry. Westerns, which often reflect a savage times and dangerous environments, have delved into the bloodier and gruesome realities of the genre as time has gone on under the eyes of revisionist directors. Likewise, horror has found many subgenres flourish when mixed with western tropes, including vampire films (NEAR DARK), creature features (THE BURROWERS) and even cannibals (RAVENOUS). But with 2015 already offering one western from a tried-and-true horror voice (Ti West’s IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE), Drafthouse Films is raising the bar, announcing this morning that they acquired the claustrophobic Civil War thriller THE KEEPING ROOM.

    Event Report: “SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT” on 35mm at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    As any fervent filmgoer can tell you, there’s nothing quite like seeing a film at the Alamo Drafthouse, a theater chain and company devoted to bringing fans the most fun cinematic experience conceivable. From their full food and drink selection to their preservation of 35mm screenings to their strict “no talking” policy, it’s a well-deserved theatrical treat to check out a film, new or old, at a Drafthouse location. So when this writer was offered the chance to host their Yonkers screening of Charles E. Selliers, Jr.’s SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, I leapt at the opportunity to help usher in this nasty holiday horror to fright fans.

    The Year in Horror, 2014: Ken’s Top 10 Films

    With little over a week until Christmas, and two weeks until New Years Eve, it seems that 2014 has been a divisive year in the world of horror. While 2013 was a boon to genre films studio and indie alike, 2014 was not as lucky: great offerings mostly found their debut on VOD, while great studio horror was, more or less, widely accepted as a dime a dozen. But while 2015 may offer some truly creepy cinema, this polarizing nature of 2014’s horror offerings will do well for at least one thing: varied, unpredictable and oddly defensive End of Year lists!

  • A Message From Managing Editor Ken W. Hanley

    A little over two years ago, I hurriedly made my way through New York, acting like a bucket of nerves as I searched for the offices of FANGORIA nearby Times Square. Having loved the magazine while growing up, I was excited to have learned they were looking for interns and that my unique skill set put me in the peculiar position of qualifying for such an opportunity. So when I finally made my way upstairs through a cramped elevator and found the door adorning the FANGORIA skull logo, I couldn’t have been more anxious, nor more ignorant of the path my life would soon quickly take.
