    Horror Artist Marc Schoenbach warns the dangers of Halloween with faux vintage ads

    As I’m sure many of you remember, there’s a great moment in HALLOWEEN II (1981) where a young boy named Gary arrives at the hospital with a bloody mouth (a particularly sharp apple, we presume). It’s ghastly and cruel, and removed from the goings on of Michael Myers & Co., reminds us of the scary world out there, bogeyman or no.

    Fecal Matters: Fantastic Fest’s “SEPTIC MAN” debuts Trailer and Phantom City Poster

    From the writer of the brilliant PONTYPOOL and the director of creature crowd pleaser MONSTER BRAWL comes something of a strange, makeup heavy, contained and contaminated thriller. SEPTIC MAN finds the plumber of  bizarre town trapped in a septic tank and the snippets of his ordeal and subsequent transformation hinted at below seem repulsive in all the right ways.

    New Voodoo-centric art for “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN”

    Here’s a lot more of that live Voodoo doll.

    Set in New Orleans, a large component of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN will be Voodoo. Angela Bassett is playing real-life practitioner Marie Laveau and the story is said to revolve around a longstanding rivalry between those who practice the Louisiana magic and a coven who descend from Salem witches. That’s been actualized in some of COVEN’s promotional art depicting what most readily calls to mind the infamous “Voodoo Doll.”

    AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN premieres October 9. Its first episode, “Bitchcraft,” will see a young girl, Zoe, shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem. Zoe is whisked away to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline. Harboring a secret agenda, Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of their generation, returns to town, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven’s deadly enemies, the Voodoo.

    Q&A: Leigh Whannell on Death, the Elderly and “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2″

    INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 is a surprising film. Less the slow build scare-a-thon of the first (and even James Wan’s summer hit THE CONJURING), this film is an aggressive whirlwind that’s no longer approaching The Further with trepidation, but charging through and searching for its weirdest bits. Of course, in what’s become something of a recurring motif in the work of Wan and writer Leigh Whannell, it’s presided over by opposing forces, and guided by sage elderly characters. In a conversation that’s largely focused on death and my budding theory that Wan & Whannell find the elderly to be last vestiges of superstition, the writer tells FANGORIA of the film, their undervalued DEAD SILENCE and his preoccupation with our eventual end.
