  • Jordan Peele Writing, Directing Horror Film, “GET OUT”

    Are you watching KEY & PEELE? What’s easily one of the funniest shows on television also frequently upholds the long held companionship/parallel wavelength of comedy and horror. It’s evident the show’s creators, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele have, if not a reverence, than certainly an affinity for outright horror and genre work. Something the latter has now confirmed, along with his exciting plans to write and direct a horror film.

  • The Hilarious “WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS” Out in February

    WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is viscerally funny. The vampire mock doc from Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi is rapid fire in its succession of laughs, be it line delivery, physical comedy or the simple joy of spending time with these rich, silly characters and their rich, silly world. From its Sundance World Premiere, I’ve been excited for fans and readers to see it. Now, an official release date has been announced.

    Q&A: Olivia Cooke talks “OUIJA”

    Currently sitting atop the box office is OUIJA. The modest, suburban set teen scream from Universal and Blumhouse is divisive among horror fans yes, but it’s undoubtedly still endearing to see the kids have come out the last weekend in October for jolts and frights. Which OUIJA does have, thanks to some ghoulish design in its supernatural entities and the emotional authenticity from lead Olivia Cooke.

    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.

    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.
