    Event Report: “MADMAN” Q&A at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    When it comes to revival screenings, there’s no place quite like the Alamo. Whether it be classics, cult classics or any and every oddity in between, the spirit of the Drafthouse experience brings together a unique and energetic audience like no other cinema can. So when the opportunity rose for this writer to host Vinegar Syndrome’s screening of the 1982 slasher classic MADMAN, complete with a Q&A with the cast and crew of the film, I immediately accepted and prepared myself for what would undoubtedly be one hell of a time.

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 2″ (TV Review)

    For all the brutality and bloodshed on display, this writer sometimes forgets just how fantastical SALEM (and, to be honest, witchcraft in general) can be at times. While the show is very much steeped in horror, the higher concept magic and SFX always seem to immerse this writer deeper into the show’s universe in a way other horror shows seldom can. And doing so, it’s also a reminder that the heightened performances, dream logic and stylistic flourishes are all what make the show so entertaining, especially when matched with strong writing to boot.

    Exclusive Blu-ray Clip: “THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2″ Featurette Suggests Possible Trilogy Plans

    The year in horror for 2015 got started with a scream earlier this year, as Hammer’s latest production, THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2: ANGEL OF DEATH, crept its way into theaters into the first weekend of January with a $15 million opening weekend. While the film wasn’t as big of a success as it’s Daniel Radcliffe-starring predecessor, but the film grossed over $35 million worldwide on a minuscule budget and, more importantly, scared audiences while doing so. And with THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 coming to Blu-ray and DVD this week from 20th Century Fox, fans of the fright franchise will excited to hear that there may yet be another chapter in THE WOMAN IN BLACK’s story, as per this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray’s featurettes…

    MTV’s “SCREAM: THE SERIES” is going to be GREAT

    You know what? I like to consider myself a fair man. I listen to a variety of music spreading across multiple genres and artists of all walks of life. I watch films regardless of era, production value, premise, or even general basic appeal. I like to give any and everything a shot, since even if something isn’t for me, it’s likely going to work for somebody else, and if it does work for me, then I will then have something new to respect and learn from as an audience member. But there are some things that, once I see the preview, I start to feel bad vibes, and even though I’ll give it a fair shake, SCREAM: THE SERIES have set those bad vibes to uncomfortable levels.

    FANTASTICA Q&A: Bill Plympton talks “CHEATIN'”, Part Two

    As filmmakers change with the times, it’s not often that a classically-informed filmmaker will retain their talents and sensibilities to their fullest extent. This is even more rare when it comes to animation, especially as the production side of things jumps from hand-drawn to digital. But luckily for audiences, Bill Plympton is that rare case, with his unfiltered, mature cinematic voice still in tact for his latest surreal animation outing, CHEATIN’. With CHEATIN’ now in theaters, FANTASTICA recently caught up with Plympton to talk animation, humor and what’s next for the groundbreaking storyteller…

  • FANGO Flashback: “MINDWARP”

    For those who have been FANGORIA fans from throughout our history may remember the birth of FANGORIA Films in 1992, a legacy that still echoes to this day with our “FANGORIA Presents” titles and various endeavors in production. But over twenty years ago, FANGORIA Films started off with three original productions, with the inaugural entry being one that encapsulated both FANGORIA and STARLOG sensibilities at the time and starred two of FANGO’s favorite genre talents. That film, Steve Barnett’s MINDWARP, didn’t quite set the box office on fire, but has amassed a loyal following over the years, culminating in Twilight Time’s recent Blu-ray release of the film. So with FANGORIA’s recent COVER TO COVER release paying tribute to our history of horror, this writer sat down to revisit the first FANGORIA Film.

  • Rest in Peace, Richard Dysart (1929 – 2015)

    While horror fans hold filmmakers and SFX artists in high esteem, there’s a reason why the horror community becomes so attached to its performers. For a genre that’s meant to explore our nightmares and evoke fears we never knew we had, an actor who can inject the material with pathos and authenticity can make or break that experience as a whole, especially if they can do so multiple times. And hence, when noted genre performers do pass on, it’s almost as if we have lost a member of a community as opposed to someone we’ve only known on the big screen as fictional characters. That’s certainly the case this week, as the exceptional Richard Dysart has passed away at the age of 86.
