    EXCLUSIVE “FRESH MEAT” clip is Going Somewhere

    Regarding FRESH MEAT, MEET THE FEEBLES’ co-writer Danny Mulheron’s latest, the term “cannibal comedy” should have most Fango fans on board. But if you need a little extra incentive, our exclusive clip—with its New Zealand accents, rifle brandishing, short shorts and gentleman wrapped in a sleeping bag repeatedly run over—should give you a pretty good idea of the gonzo tone in store.

    Lesbian Necrophilia, Violent Hemorrhaging warns “HEMLOCK GROVE” Red Band Trailer

    Netflix’s original programming and their all-in-one-day approach is about to get good deal gory and a good deal sudsy. Based on the novel from Brian McGreevy and produced, shepherded and partly directed by Eli Roth, HEMLOCK GROVE—as evidenced in its red band preview—revels in all manner of small town illicit deeds.

    HEMLOCK premieres this Friday, April 19; optimal placement for weekend gorging on this tale of the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell.  Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side, including werewolves and bio-experiments, is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems.

    I’ve seen two episodes so far, and the above footage is a pretty accurate look at the fun to expect. I’m all in what’s clearly both TWIN PEAKS-inspired and a product of post-AMERICAN HORROR STORY TV. This is bloody, soapy, hammy all-over print horror. There’s a review forthcoming, and I’m looking forward to setting aside more than a few hours to catch the rest.

  • Get a free copy of John Skipp’s first novel, “THE LIGHT AT THE END” right now!

    If you haven’t noticed, the (still relatively) brand new FANGORIA.com holds a column from esteemed horror author John Skipp called Nightmare Royale. There’s a brand new one on the way, but until then, Mr. Skipp would like you to know there’s absolutely free copies of his first, highly influential work, THE LIGHT AT THE END available right now.

    Skipp writes, “For those of you who have no idea who I am, or why you should be listening to a single word I say, I’d like to recommend you to the  free, two-day giveaway  of my first novel, THE LIGHT AT THE END. This is the punk-vampire-in-the-subways-of-New York City horror novel that helped define ‘splatterpunk’ as a subversive hardcore horror phenomenon in the 80s, selling a million copies, freaking out a bunch of people, and blah-dee-blah. But if it helps inspire you to check out my long, weird body of work, then I say GO FOR IT! And I hope you have fun! Horrible, horrible fun.”

    The FREE GIVEAWAY runs April 11-12 at Amazon right here

    Fango editor Chris Alexander goes a “DEVIL’S MILE”

    Outside of sitting as Fango’s tireless chief, Chris Alexander is also a tireless macabre music maker and he’ll be doing just that in Joe O’Brien’s upcoming bit of crime horror, DEVIL’S MILE.

    The film, working with the classic criminals-cum-victims structure finds a trio of kidnappers who take an ill-advised detour en route to deliver their hostages, two teenage girls, to their mysterious and powerful employer.  When they accidentally kill one of the girls during a botched escape attempt, their simmering mistrust explodes into shocking violence.  But what they thought was their worst case scenario is only the beginning, as they are engulfed by the hellish forces that haunt the road, a road they realize they may never escape.  Now captors and captive must fight together to escape the monstrous forces pursuing them and somehow survive…

    “I always think of myself as a musician first, with my writing and now, image-making being an extension of an emotional connection I have to sound and rhythm,” says Alexander, who previously scored the Stephen King-based short ONE FOR THE ROAD and his own directing debut, BLOOD FOR IRINA.  “Having the honor to tackle Joe’s first film is exciting for me because he has always understood how potent music is in horror, how it can be just as, if not often more so, as vital a character in a film as the cast. Devil’s Mile is a dirty, claustrophobic and highly original genre flick. It’s been a joy splashing my sounds all over it, being able to articulate my musical impression over Joe’s very specific vision. Hopefully this is one of many more projects to come.”

    O’Brienm who’s written for both Fango and Rue Morgue, adds, “I’ve long been an admirer of Chris’s work as a writer, scholar and cheerleader for the horror genre, and I was a big fan of his album MUSIC FOR MURDER.  So when the opportunity arose to bring his dark creative sensibilities to the project, I jumped at it. We share a common language of horror movies and movie music.  I told him I was looking for something in the vein of the PRINCE OF DARKNESS score by way of PROFONDO ROSSO-era Goblin, and Chris just smiled and nodded and replied ‘You want a darker BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA.’  He’s a perfect fit for the film.”
