    “EVIL DEAD 2″ Won’t Come from Remake Director Alvarez

    EVIL DEAD 2013 was immensely divisive. Arriving with an anticipation few contemporary horror films have garnered, the result is a total gorefest, delightfully achieved with mostly practical FX. But that does not a film make, despite the accompaniment of often stunning visuals from director Fede Alvarez. Still, it opened both at SXSW and in theaters to an enthusiastic reception, and at the former, Alvarez announced a sequel was already being developed. Months on, following plenty of buzz talk about crossing the reboot’s timeline with the original series and Sam Raimi helming an ARMY OF DARKNESS 2, it seems the redo’s follow-up has stalled.

    Q&A: Classic Misfit, DOYLE on Danzig’s 25th Anniversary Tour and More

    About midway through the set on Danzig’s 25th Anniversary tour, the legendary front man stops the show to introduce an old friend. With absolute fury, Misfits guitarist Doyle comes stomping out—in full devilocked, corpse faced glory—to blister through a set of the seminal punk band’s favorites. The room, or at least New York City’s Roseland Ballroom in this case, comes alive. Even someone who prefers the solo Danzig material would find it hard to deny this as a highlight, the most rousing aspect of the evening.

    Michael Dougherty’s utter gem of Halloween spirit has, over the last four years, undoubtedly found its audience.

    Q&A: Dylan Baker Reflects on “TRICK ‘R TREAT” and Halloween Hijinks

    TRICK ‘R TREAT is well on its way to tradition. A film reverent of Halloween, it captures the holiday’s dark, mischievous air like so few have been able. This means it’d probably fall in the good graces of Principal Steven Wilkins, a standout of the film’s great ensemble thanks to the work of Dylan Baker. Presiding over and hewing close to the roots of Samhain, Steven Wilkins is unhappy with those who are disrespectful and there is grim delight in watching him deal with one such youth.

    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.
