  • FANGORIA Presents: “GERM Z”—Getting the Bug Part One

    ,,,,

    Though some fans may fear the zombie subgenre has grown tired in recent times, they can rest assured that GERM Z unleashes a revitalizing new take on its variety. This indie horror flick, which details the story that unfolds when a deadly germination spawns after the military executes what becomes a failed attempt to shoot down a satellite orbiting Earth, is unique in multiple regards—namely resulting from its heavily character-driven plotline and strong acting, two factors rarely seen in similar low-budget films. We chatted with co-director J.T. Boone (who, in addition to writing the screenplay and helping to produce GERM Z, works as an attorney) and producer Lynette Dixon (a radiologist by trade, also currently getting her masters degree in psychology) about the film, which arrives as the fifth release under the FANGORIA Presents banner (see here for details; to find Fango’s Comcast collection on your VOD channel, search this way: Movies > Movie Collections > Fangoria).

  • Q+A: Director Katie Aselton talks indie thriller “BLACK ROCK”

    ,,

    FANGO recently chatted with independent filmmaker Katie Aselton about her latest feature, BLACK ROCK (which hits theatres this Friday May 17) – a horror thriller about three lifelong friends who get much more than they bargained for after they set out on a camping trip with the intention of reconnecting with their childhoods. Aselton also acts in the film, alongside Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth. The screenplay was written by Aselton’s husband Mark Duplass, a film director, actor and producer often cited as one of leading visionaries of the mumblecore movement – a subgenre of independent film primarily characterized by its highly naturalistic approach. Aselton gave us the details on her filmmaking experience in addition to her take on mumblecore, and her relationships with both acting and directing. (Read more on the film in our current print issue FANGORIA #323.)

  • “VIDEO DIARY OF A LOST GIRL” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    by: Vivienne Vaughn on: 2013-01-25 15:49:10

    VIDEO DIARY OF A LOST GIRL, the first feature directed by
    Lindsay Denniberg, is not made for the masses; it’s a completely bizarre,
    surrealistic art-house film that’s not quite comparable to anything, except perhaps Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 horror phantasmagoria HOUSE.
