    Q&A: The Spierig Brothers on “PREDESTINATION”, “WINCHESTER”

    What makes PREDESTINATION stand out from other time travel projects? Perhaps it may be it’s curiously small core cast, each of whom play characters who are connected by more than just fate? Maybe it’s the projects specific designs, having set the project mostly in alternate yet familiar versions of our own past? Or maybe it’s that the project is an adaptation of a Robert Heinlein short story, ranking it among the few big screen takes on the author’s provocative work.

    Interview: Greg Francis Deals Out “POKER NIGHT”

    As a writer, one of the things I adore most about horror is the amount of imagination that can be found in genre storytelling. Sure, I’ll admit that for every one truly compelling tale, we’ll likely get about twenty copycats riding its coattails, but even in those situations, the filmmakers are sometimes inspired to do great things beyond their confines.  And from there, horror breeds new storytellers and more voices to bring us more films that will keep us leaving the light on at night.

    Q&A: Director Jeremy Berg on “THE DEVICE”

    As many of those familiar with the process knows, independent filmmaking is much like pulling off a magic trick in broad daylight. Without the resources and time suited to your liking, you often turn to your own resourcefulness and imagination to wow the audience.  And the more ambitious your trick may be, the more you’re going to have to fight to create something truly unique. And for director Jeremy Berg, helmer of the alien abduction flick THE DEVICE, there’s few tricks as ambitious as pulling off a convincing extraterrestrial thriller on shoestrings. In a recent chat with FANGORIA, Berg spoke about pulling off THE DEVICE, building backstory and what lies next for the versatile filmmaker…

    Q&A: Chuck Palahniuk on “BEAUTIFUL YOU”

    Brilliant madman author Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) released his latest opus, BEAUTIFUL YOU, this past October, a twisted tale that follows Penny Harrigan, a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm who finds herself a test subject for a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called “Beautiful You.” But that’s just the beginning of her story, as Penny becomes an unwitting pawn in a maniacal plot for world sexual domination. Like all of Palahniuk’s stuff, the horror hides in the skin of the surreal and socio-political, and FANGORIA caught up with Chuck to discuss…

    Q&A: Leigh Whannell on “THE MULE”

    Out of all the screenwriters currently working in horror, there’s as few as prolific and busy as SAW/INSIDIOUS scribe Leigh Whannell. With 2 major studio releases hitting next year, Whannell still takes the time out to write, produce and act in several indie projects. And while Whannell has his own words about his upcoming genre releases, he’s relishing a whole different kind of horror in his latest independent film, the Australian crime comedy THE MULE. Whannell recently spoke to FANGORIA about offering a new kind of body horror, returning to his cultural roots and working with his INSIDIOUS co-star Angus Sampson on THE MULE…

    Exclusive: When Will We See The Original “STRAIN” Pilot, Featuring John Hurt & Lance Henriksen?

    With the current (and seemingly unstoppable) boom of horror television, one of the most divisive entries among fans is THE STRAIN, FX’s adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s trilogy of vampire novels. With an astounding cast, an experienced showrunner in Carlton Cuse and incredible SFX work, THE STRAIN had almost as many vocal supporters as it did detractors, although the show’s audience has earned it a second season nonetheless. And while THE STRAIN certainly isn’t a perfect horror series (and what horror series is?), the show also had the dual-edge sword of early buzz, cemented by positive reactions to the feature-length, Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot.

    Q&A: Nick Damici on “LATE PHASES”

    If you’re a fan of indie horror (and we surely hope you are), the name “Nick Damici” should be familiar. After all, Damici has been turning in memorable roles for years in truly haunting terror tales such as IN THE CUT, STAKE LAND and WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the latter two with longtime collaborator Jim Mickle. However, Damici’s latest venture, Adrian Bogliano’s LATE PHASES, brings the actor into new genre territory, giving him one of the most challenging roles of his career while squaring off against fully realized, practical werewolves. Damici recently spoke to FANGORIA about LATE PHASES, acting blind and butting heads with a FANGORIA Hall of Famer…

    “PRISONER 489″ & The Growing ‘Cult’ of Joe R. Lansdale

    For years, Joe R. Lansdale embodied the very definition of ‘cult’ author, adored by a fervent but fringe audience first introduced to his writing through its membership in the explicit Splatterpunk movement—a literary scene in which horror writers competed to push the envelope of gore, amorality, and taboo sexuality until it burst.
