  • Q&A: Actor Sharlto Copley talks “HARDCORE HENRY”

    ,

    Despite delivering a breakout performance in 2009’s DISTRICT 9 and further carving out a serious foothold in mainstream global cinema via subsequent high profile roles in films such as the 2010 A-TEAM remake, ELYSIUM (2013),  Angelina Jolie-starring MALEFICENT (2014), and CHAPPIE (2015), South African actor/director Sharlto Copley cannot, it seems, resist returning to the roots of his gritty formative indie days when a particularly idiosyncratic project comes along like, say, the uber-original 2013 post-apocalyptic mystery flick OPEN GRAVE or this year’s wild, uber-controversial HARDCORE HENRY, now out on DVD and Blu-ray. FANGORIA recently spoke with the extremely affable Copley about maintaining balance amidst much success, the HARDCORE HENRY hullabaloo, the challenges of telling a story entirely from first person POV, and why he loves working in genre cinema and will never stop.

  • Exclusive Premiere: Will Wood & The Tapeworms’ Wicked New Music Video!

    ,

    Will Wood and the Tapeworms summon forth a gleefully deranged sonic ambience—think a cross-pollination of Gogol Bordello and Mr. Bungle laying out a raucous rock n’ roll perversion of cabaret for a Tom-Waits-by-way-of-Bowie character to freak-croon-freak out across—and now, courtesy director Adam Nawrot, the band has got a video to translate that sound visually, which FANGORIA is pleased to exclusively premiere below.

  • Five for Frightening: 5 Reasons To Celebrate The 10th Annual NYC Zombie Crawl

    ,

    “When there’s no more booze in Hell, the dead will walk the earth…” So warns the tagline of deliciously unhinged, gleefully transgressive NYC Zombie Crawl, which celebrates its tenth madcap apocalypse this Sunday, June 26th—and this edition is pretty clearly shaping up to be the nuttiest, bloodiest one yet. The full dizzying schedule of visual, aural and social depravities can be found at the event’s official website, but FANGO asked producer/director/zombie ringleader Doug Sakmann to fill us in on the five biggest lowlights of this insane institution. The wrangler of the undead did not disappoint…

  • Exclusive Clip: Dangers Abound from “THE ONES BELOW”

    ,

    When sexy power couple Theresa and Jon choose to be good neighbors, they are very good neighbors, indeed, dragging their upstairs counterparts Kate and Justin off on fun outings or dropping by with gourmet food, pricey wine, and a capacity for highly civilized, sparkling conversation. But when they choose to be bad neighbors…well, let’s just say THE ONES BELOW can sometimes feel like the 1992 Rebecca De Mornay evil-nanny-out-for-vengeance shocker THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE as reimagined by Polanski.

    THE ONES BELOW invites us into a duplex where the lives of two beautiful couples, both expecting their first child, become intertwined—first, sweetly, and then, after a tragic turn of events, horrifically, as their greatest joy transmogrifies into a Polanski-esque, Lynch-ian nightmare. FANGORIA recently had the pleasure of discussing the origins and implications of this psychological thriller with writer/director David Farr…

  • Q&A: “SILENT HILL’s” Radha Mitchell Makes “THE SACRIFICE”

    ,,,

    Though Radha Mitchell has earned well-deserved success in high-profile cinematic offerings—FINDING NEVERLAND opposite Johnny Depp, MAN ON FIRE with Denzel Washington—the Australian-born actress continues to boldly delve into more frightful material. Her latest such jaunt is her wonderfully weird, dread-inducing portrayal of an American obstetrician engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse against rune-inspired Scottish cultists in SACRIFICE.
