    A staggering monument to a modern master, this fall the Toronto International Film Festival’s CRONENBERG PROJECT will serve as an exhibition seemingly unlike any other. Honoring Cronenberg and his contributions to film and media, the lengthy (it spans well into winter 2014) Project is comprised of a great many components including two film retrospectives (one of all Cronenberg films, and one of the “Rise of Body Horror”); a museum-esque exhibition including props, costumes and audio-visual elements that trace the evolution of his career and filmography; one of Guillermo del Toro’s beloved Master Classes with Cronenberg in attendance; and an actual space to take you within the filmmaker’s mind and films and much more.

    “ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW” Poster: Horror of the Happiest Place on Earth

    ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW seems the most curious film of the year. My biggest regret at Sundance was missing the movie everyone spoke about, which for a time seemed uncertain to ever play anywhere again. In his feature debut, Randy Moore covertly shot the surrealist, apparently Polasnki-esque story at Disneyland. It’s an incredible feat, one that becomes even more of an accomplishment considering the acclaim the picture has garnered and the apparently pointed attack it serves up on the artificial happiness Disney serves up.

    Black Eyes: Marina de Van’s “DARK TOUCH” Gets First Poster

    Marina de Van, the filmmaker behind the intensely graphic IN MY SKIN and stylish thriller DON’T LOOK BACK has turned her eye to a child’s tale of horror. DARK TOUCH is a thrilling, Ireland-set film about a girl followed by destruction and may be the cause of it. The first poster certainly tips a hat to that with the innocent face of young Missy Keating, given the blackest eyes.

    Q&A: Rob Zombie on the Strange, Satanic “THE LORDS OF SALEM”

    Surreal and singular, THE LORDS OF SALEM is one of the must-see horror movies of the year. Regardless of your own reaction in the end, it’s simply unlike much of anything that’s out. As we discuss with its director, the always polarizing Rob Zombie, that alone should be an exciting prospect. A descent into Satanic madness that is often hypnotic, composed and grand, the film was completed on Zombie’s quickest shoot and lowest budget. Here, the director speaks with Fango candidly about the lack of adventurous movie going, finishing THE LORDS OF SALEM and of course, it’s incredible wallpaper.

  • The Serpent Slithers: “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN” Poster is Rad

    On multiple levels, this first poster for the upcoming witchy season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY is striking and exciting. The first, being aesthetically. The design is awesome and kinky and directly tied to the Voodoo and New Orleans location of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN, as a major component of the religion is Li Grand Zombi, a snake deity. Zombie is also said to be the name of Marie Laveau’s pet snake. Angela Bassett portrays the New Orleans Voodoo practitioner in the series. Secondly, that prominent cast list features only one male. The rest, an ensemble of thrilling actresses sure to make this season something to behold. Here’s hoping some female directors get in on the fun, too.
