  • 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.

  • Exclusive Q&A: Morgan Spurlock talks “RATS”, Screening for Free Tonight in NYC!

    ,,

    Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction, and more often than not, truth is a lot scarier as well. Whether it’s the dark side of the human condition or the real-life creature features that one can discover in the nooks and crannies of the world, there are plenty of terrifying things that we just might come face-to-face with during our time on Earth. And, of course, the one we’re most likely to witness in their goosebump-inducing glory are rats, who finally get the disturbing documentary treatment courtesy of indie filmmaker Morgan Spurlock. With the film around the corner, including a free NYC screening courtesy of FANGO and Discovery, this writer caught up with Spurlock to discuss blending horror and documentary storytelling for RATS…

  • Mike Flanagan’s “GERALD’S GAME” Adaptation Set for Netflix, Cast Confirmed!

    ,

    For this filmmaker’s money, Mike Flanagan is one of the best horror filmmakers working today, with his unique use of perspective and innate penchant for chilling imagery nearly unrivaled among his contemporaries. Five films in to his directorial career, Flanagan has shown the range of a true horror master, from the emotionally charged ABSENTIA to the mind-bending HUSH. But horror fans might know Flanagan best from OCULUS, the haunted mirror flick that lovingly echoed the voice of Stephen King, drawing curiosity as to what- if any- King property Flanagan would ever want to adapt. Well, as confirmed by Rue-Morgue last month, Flanagan’s long-gestating adaptation of GERALD’S GAME is finally moving forward at Netflix, with Deadline confirming the cast and the details of this controversial chiller.
