  • 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”

    ,

    For fans of horror television, there’s nothing quite like SALEM on the air, a series that mixes dread, pulp, and gore like few others.

Luckily, FANGORIA caught up with SALEM writer/producer Adam Simon at this year’s New York Comic Con, who shed a bit of light on the dark, demented witchcraft series…

  • 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.

  • Q&A: Rob Zombie on “31” and The Elusive Extended Cut of “HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES”

    ,,

    Face it, fright fans: there’s nothing quite like a Rob Zombie movie.

FANGORIA recently caught up with the formidable filmmaker to discuss this crowdfunded chiller, his future in horror, and whether or not horrorheads will get to see a HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES extended cut…

  • 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.

  • “OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As one of the best filmmakers working today in the horror genre, Mike Flanagan possesses a certain perspective that has made him a tried-and-true boon to contemporary horror audiences. While subjects such as haunted mirrors, interdimensional passageways, and masked slashers can come off as stale to veteran horror fans, Flanagan’s perspective finds a way to make them unique and fresh again, from the unreliable reality of OCULUS to the visualized internal monologue of HUSH. And with his latest film, the prequel OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL, not only does Flanagan implement that perspective to offer a decidedly old-school and satisfying upgrade from the abysmal original film, but he does such with a mature and precise craftsmanship that has cemented the filmmaker’s status as “Master of Horror.”

  • 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…
