    Guest Blog: “THE ABCs OF DEATH 2″ Director Alejandro Brugues on “ALIEN”

    As a burgeoning series of films, THE ABCs OF DEATH anthologies are predicated on, well death. The wait for it. The horror of it. The humor in it. It’s inevitable, and even in just three or so minutes, the build can be massive. These experimental, sometimes exhausting omnibuses see a massive ensemble of international filmmakers try their hands at the short format and visceral release of onscreen demise. But what put them on this path? What shocking, horrifying, hilarious, titillating filmic expirations influenced them? The directors of THE ABCs OF DEATH 2 are contributing guest blogs on their favorite cinematic deaths to all manner of movie sites. Here at Fango, JUAN OF THE DEAD helmer Alejandro Brugués writes of his.

    Q&A: Sean Hogan, on the Long-Awaited U.S. Bow of “THE DEVIL’S BUSINESS”

    In 2011, an intimate, brisk, affecting film unspooled at festivals around the world and introduced many audiences to UK talent Sean Hogan. The director of LIE STILL (unfortunately retitled to THE HAUNTING OF 24 in the U.S.), who had also just contributed to transgressive anthology LITTLE DEATHS, seemed poised to break through in a heavier manner. After all, his THE DEVIL’S BUSINESS was a literary, thoughtful piece of horror, one looking to enthrall and ultimately repulse, ending on a particularly eerie note.

  • EXCL Clip: Mormon Stalker Movie, “MISSIONARY”

    Stalker movies, man. There’s something about the utterly obsessed that’s massively unsettling, and I’d argue it isn’t their dangerous devotion. No, it’s the complete and total willingness to make every situation cringe-worthy, to storm past social bounds and codes, seemingly begging to make any interaction the most awful it could possibly be. Speaking of: MISSIONARY, and an exclusive excerpt as shining example.

  • First Trailer: Interactive Horror App, “VOYEUR”

    VOYEUR heralds what could be a provocative new piece of mobile entertainment. The upcoming interactive horror app/game/series poses a dilemma, giving users the option to indulge darker impulses, or our natural instinct to verbally warn characters onscreen. In anticipatory press stills, the app/film looked grungy and brutal, but—whether pulpy or no—its true ickiness seems to lie in being confronted with that choice.

    Q&A: Checking in with Rob Zombie and “31”

    If I’m honest, I don’t know why exactly musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie is presently doing a round of interviews. The performer is currently in the midst of recording a new album, as well as running a polarizing crowdfunding campaign for 70s set Halloween-horror 31, yes, but neither are at a stage of completion. If anything, the opportunity seemed one to simply “check in” with Rob Zombie, one that fans and FANGORIA would take advantage of regardless.

  • Ghost Face Not “Involved In New Format” of “SCREAM” Series

    MTV and The Weinstein Company have crafted a forthcoming series based on the most popular contemporary slasher franchise, SCREAM. And what is SCREAM? To many, it’s Ghost Face, the killer outfitted in an ubiquitous Halloween costume that sees an all black robe punctuated by a white, screaming “ghost face.” Along with Sidney, Gale and Dewey, Ghost Face endures, with each film’s subsequent killer(s) taking on the form. What if said form is absent from the show?
