    Limited Odd City Poster to Accompany Special “TRICK ‘R TREAT” Screening at Beyond Fest

    Beyond Fest’s incredible lineup of cinematic terror is almost done taking  over L.A. (and ending my East Coast jealousy), but not before wrapping up with a blowout screening of the now beloved Halloween anthology TRICK ‘R TREAT. A rare big screen bow for the film which was unceremoniously released straight-to-DVD and deserved so much more, the Monday, October 28th closing night will also see a panel featuring writer/director Michael Dougherty and stars Dylan Baker and Brian Cox, as well as a limited edition poster from Odd City Entertainment and James Fosdike. Luckily, that neato piece will sell online in a limited capacity the following day, too.

    Win an “ONLY GOD FORGIVES” Prize Pack!

    Oh, do we have something for you. Having broken through with the ultra-cool neo(n)-noir DRIVE, the very singular director Nicolas Winding Refn could’ve easily gone a more crowd-pleasing path with his follow-up and ninth feature film ONLY GOD FORGIVES. Carrying over one of DRIVE’s most appealing aspects, Ryan Gosling, he instead crafted a sort of nightmare world, where the bad behavior of bad people is no longer a slow motion seductive, but garish, surreal and unsettling. The ensuing dialogue-light, transgressive journey of harsh vengeance—guided by a leading man who’s largely ineffectual and an incredible performance by Kristin Scott Thomas as his silver tongued, horrifying, warped mother—is one pushy, weird delight. And FANGORIA is happy to reveal that we have a prize pack including the film on Blu-ray, one copy of the great Cliff Martinez soundtrack, one shirt and copies of the character posters for a lucky reader.

    Clive Barker to pen new “HELLRAISER” with Doug Bradley envisioned to return

    A new vision of HELLRAISER, one that aims to do justice to both Clive Barker’s original novella THE HELLBOUND HEART and the fantastic film on which its based, is long overdue. Stuck in some form of development or another at Dimension Films for years now, the proposed remake now has both a writer and some optimism attached. That writer? Barker himself.

    “Do You Think Something Bad Happened?” The Trailer for Adrian Bogliano’s Excellent “HERE COMES THE DEVIL”

    Bold and unsettling, Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s HERE COMES THE DEVIL has been waiting to be unleashed. It comes wrapped in adoration from both Fango editor Chris Alexander and I, and it’s most thrilling to see its trailer cover the wide spectrum of lo-fi madness that ensues in this frank, surreal picture.

    EXCL: Phantom City Creative’s “VAULT OF HORROR” Piece for Mondo’s E.C. Comics Tribute Show

    “Their time was cut short,” R.L. Stine writes in the introduction to Jim Trombetta’s collection and history of Horror Comics and their persecution, THE HORROR! THE HORROR! The GOOSEBUMPS creator continues, “Their star went dark. But the eerie, ghoulish glow they gave off shines on.” Later as he pledges his own allegiance and spot under the influence of E.C. titles like TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE VAULT OF HORROR and THE HAUNT OF FEAR, it’s clear Stine is but one example of the far-reach E.C., creators Al Feldstein and William Gaines and artists/writers like Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Graham Ingels, Jack Kamen, Joe Orlando and Al Williamson exert into the present.

    “THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER”: The Best Film About Meeting Your Girlfriend’s Family

    Art changes. THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, while ostensibly the same film it was in 1960, has become something else entirely for this viewer. Consumed as a teenager by reverence of its icons—Vincent Price and Roger Corman—USHER was not so much affecting as it simply was “essential watching.” Playing on Turner Classic, it was something that had to be seen and in turn, there was the thought that that was enough. HOUSE OF USHER didn’t properly digest. Or maybe, I didn’t know how to.
