    EXCL Teaser: “KILLER LEGENDS” Explores the Truth Behind Scary Stories

    In 2009, the documentary CROPSEY aimed to help us understand the nature of urban legend by singling out a Northeastern horror story and tracing its association with a very disturbing true crime out of Staten Island, NY. In its exploration of everything from satanic panic to the closed Willowbrook State School, co-director Joshua Zeman introduced the idea of “Legend Tripping”: seeking out and engaging your own local scary story. Now Zeman and filmmaker Rachel Mills are doing just that, as a new doc finds the pair traversing the U.S. in search of any dark reality behind what we tell each other in the dark. In anticipation of its Chiller TV debut this March, FANGORIA has your first look at KILLER LEGENDS.

    Q&A: E.L. Katz on Subversive Horror-Comedy, “CHEAP THRILLS”

    Shock is a cornerstone of horror cinema, but it’s indeed rare for a film to retain lasting bite. CHEAP THRILLS, which you’ve undoubtedly heard about based on its tremendous festival fun, trades in both, ending up a gnashing, hilarious, subversive reflection of the types of indignities we like to watch each other suffer. A microcosm of a society that hosts embarrassment-as-entertainment, self-deception and class conflict, the most surprising thing about E.L. Katz’s feature debut is that it’s just that. FANGORIA spoke with the filmmaker, a longtime collaborator of YOU’RE NEXT’s Adam Wingard, about how he packed a killer cast, clever subtext and more into an accomplished first film.
