  • Q&A: Ti West on “IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE”

    ,

    He’s been lauded as an indie auteur, a contemporary master of horror, and even a FANGORIA Hall of Fame inductee. But for his most recent project, IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE, Ti West trades in unsettling horror for Spaghetti Western aesthetics, crafting a revenge tale like few filmmakers can, complete wiith an all-star cast (headlined by the likes of Ethan Hawke and John Travolta) and a sardonic sense of humor. FANGORIA recently caught up with West to talk about his first foray into Westerns, making subversive cinema, and what’s next after IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE…

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Geena Davis talks “THE EXORCIST”!

    ,,

    When taking on the matriarchal role of THE EXORCIST series, any performer would know the shoes they have to fill. However, when THE EXORCIST cast Geena Davis as the head of the Rance family, the show grabbed the attention of fright fans nationwide, with her penchant for genre roles in projects such as THE FLY and BEETLEJUICE giving the project an added sense of legitimacy among the skepticism. Luckily, Davis has proven herself to be an incredible asset for THE EXORCIST, bringing a bold yet vulnerable performance one doesn’t find too often in the genre. And at New York Comic Con 2016, FANGORIA spoke to Davis about the series, her legacy as a performer, and what’s next for THE EXORCIST!

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Actress Janet Varney talks “STAN AGAINST EVIL”!

    ,

    Although one might be more familiar with his comedy, fright fans might recognize Dana Gould from his increasing profile in the horror world, with performances in TALES OF HALLOWEEN and SOUTHBOUND to his appearances on FANGORIA’s MONSTER PARTY to his special featurettes on horror home video, including Criterion’s recent CARNIVAL OF SOULS Blu-ray. But Gould is jumping headfirst into horror with his first horror comedy television series, STAN AGAINST EVIL, following a grieving small-town sheriff who comes face to face with monsters and mayhem. Yet Gould isn’t alone with this new venture, with performers John C. McGinley and Janet Varney bringing their comedic sensibilities to IFC’s creepshow as well. And with FANGORIA live on the scene at New York Comic Con 2016, this writer spoke to Varney about her prominent role in STAN AGAINST EVIL and the physicality of fighting the forces of evil…

  • NJ’s Premiere Halloween Attraction, The Haunted Scarehouse, Offers Full Contact & Abduction Experiences!

    ,,

    When it comes to Haunted Attractions, the business of getting scared is one that wears many faces. For some, haunted attractions can be safe fun, with all actors at an arm’s distance as they navigate through a spooky walkthrough. For others, it’s all about getting transgressive, going through a nightmare scenario that’s as taxing physically as it is emotionally. But for The Haunted Scarehouse, New Jersey’s Premiere Haunted Attraction, extreme is just the beginning, with a pair of new experiences coming that will make even the most intense haunt fanatic think twice before participating.

  • PUFF 2016: “NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    If you’re offended easily, weak in the stomach, or adverse to the Troma / Frank Henenlotter brand of horror comedy, then there’s a good chance you won’t make it past the first five minutes of Jonathan Straiton’s NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE. However, if you can make it past the necrophilia, rape monsters, and explosive bodily fluids, NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE is one hell of a crowd-pleasing horror comedy, filled with memorable one-liners and insane practical FX. And even despite the crude, vulgar, and perverse turns that NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE brings to the table, there’s a genuine earnestness behind the narrative that thankfully keeps the film from falling into SCARY MOVIE territory.

  • Q&A: Actor Henry Zebrowski talks Season 3 of “YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL”

    ,

    When it comes to horror television, fright fans have seen it all. From small towns with teenage vampire slayers to cabins filled with deadites to cities plagued with zombies, every lurid location one might think of has been the setting of terrifying television… every location, of course, except for Hell itself. Leave it to Adult Swim to break the mold with YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL, the warped horror comedy sitcom that shows the crude and bizarre side of Hell and its many inhabitants. With the third season of YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL right around the corner, FANGORIA caught up with the show’s self-deprecating star, actor/comedian/podcaster Henry Zebrowski, to talk about what surreal surprises are in store…

  • Event Report: The 26th Annual Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, FL!

    One of the best things about the Halloween season is the variety of haunted attractions one can find locally, nationally, and globally. From Horror Escape Rooms like New Jersey’s Haunted Scarehouse to extreme haunts such as Los Angeles’ Blackout to all the wicked walkthroughs in between, fright fans can pick their poison based on their budget, location, and threshold for scares. Yet when it comes to haunted attractions, there’s a damn good reason why people travel from across the world to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, the haunted attraction arm of Universal Studios theme parks.

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Jeremy Slater talks “THE EXORCIST” TV Series!

    ,

    Filled with solid scares, unsettling imagery, and a phenomenal twist on the original concept, FOX’s TV adaptation of THE EXORCIST has been the unexpected gem of the Halloween season. Created, written, and produced by PET scribe Jeremy Slater, THE EXORCIST subverts expectations around every corner, and has rejuvenated the floundering, atypical exorcism genre by leaps and bounds. With Slater recently attending New York Comic Con, FANGORIA caught up with the filmmaker to discuss taking on such a daunting horror property in this exclusive video interview…

  • “SCREAM: THE TV SERIES HALLOWEEN SPECIAL” (TV Review)

    ,,

    With gore, suspense, and some really fun set pieces, SCREAM: THE TV SERIES has become the little horror series that could. Now, with two seasons in the bag and a truncated third (and likely final) season on the way, SCREAM puts a petrifying post-script on their 2016 offerings with a brand new 2-hour Halloween Special. But while this eerie epilogue gives us more time with the survivors of the massacres from previous seasons, this special does divert away from Lakewood and the Brandon James mythology, for better and for worse.

  • “CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE” (TV Review)

    ,,

    With the amount of horror shows currently on television, it’s fun to see what each scare series uses as their trademark of choice. Whether it’s the “anything can happen” attitude of THE WALKING DEAD, the elegant art house melodrama of HANNIBAL, or the splattery horror comedy of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, no two genre programs bring quite the same ingredients to the table. However, in the case of Syfy’s new Creepypasta-influenced series, CHANNEL ZERO, not only does the show bring something not often explored on television, but one that rarely gets the big screen treatment: pure, unadulterated nightmare logic.
