    “THE DEN” (Movie Review)

    The anonymity of the internet is the monster of THE DEN, a new POV/Found Footage title that aims (for at least the first half) to tell its story entirely from a computer screen. Opening with what must be a self-aware cheap jolt, director Zachary Donohue then unfurls a wide spectrum of malicious intent that Elizabeth (and by proxy you) is prey to by simply just being online. Viral pranks, swinging dicks and the harsh invalidation of your existence by someone immediately deciding they don’t want to chat with you give away to true evil, of course. As a film essentially about the horrors that await us online, THE DEN must go big in its cautionary tale and it does, alternately being effectively eerie and stumbling along the way.

    Trailer, Release Info: Dutch Techno-Thriller “APP” and its Second Screen Experience

    APP may not be a movie for those worried about our growing dependence on smartphones, or the omnipresent nature technology has in our daily lives. The Dutch thriller, coming soon from RAM Releasing (who just put out Korean film HIDE AND SEEK), finds a young woman at the mercy of a sinister app installed on her phone. And while viewers watch her ordeal, they’ll also experience it as an accompanying app aims to provide a singular, multimedia experience.

    Stanley Film Festival to Return this April

    Still young yet, the Stanley Film Festival may already have the coolest destination of any genre film fest: The Stanley.

    “THE RAID’s” Gareth Evans Talks Possible Horror Feature

    With THE RAID and the forthcoming ultraviolent epic THE RAID 2, Gareth Evans has certainly cemented himself as a master of modern action cinema. Last year however, he also managed to blow audience’s minds with “Safe Haven,” a short horror film co-directed by Timo Tjahjanto, in found footage anthology V/H/S/2. The short focused on an Indonesian cult and revealed the same go-for-broke madness found in THE RAID movies, but tuned to a truly insane, Fulci-like dial. Naturally, we’re hoping Evans makes a return to the genre, and when speaking with the filmmaker about the intensely bloody THE RAID 2, FANGORIA asked if he’s inclined to make an all-out horror picture.

    New “OCULUS” Poster Goes Through the Looking Glass

    Allow me to express this sentiment again: Mike Flanagan’s OCULUS is a very highly anticipated horror film here. Having delivered the terrific, eerie ABSENTIA, and coupled with stunning festival word (including from Fango’s own Chris Alexander), it seems Flanagan has something special on his hands and each new piece of art ratchets up anticipation. A new one sheet has arrived, illustrating the otherworldly nature of this accursed mirror that haunts the film and its characters, and even sort of reminds me of the end of PRINCE OF DARKNESS.

    EXCL Clip: Zombie Thriller, “THE RETURNED”

    It’s refreshing in an oversaturated undead climate to see some films and series attempt to get back to one of the more interesting aspects of zombie cinema: allegory. Romero’s DEAD films are legendary and part of their greatness comes from the willingness to engage the audience and discuss their lives and the world surrounding them. Manuel Carballo’s new film THE RETURNED is also looking to push zombies into a thoughtful arena, crafting a world where the outbreak has come and gone and is now treatable.
