    In Monessen, Pennsylvania many people were recently seen crawling through the streets in zombie make-up. But who is behind this zombie apocalypse? Legendary, punk rock band, the Misfits. They may be punks at heart, but they are total professionals when giving fans what they want: a live horror show. The band wanted to give something more for their live shows and so they decided to make their own horror clips with the help of Director Jason Baker and award winning, special make-up effects artist, Tom Savini and his students from the Tom Savini Special Make-Up Effects Program as well as the Factory Digital Filmmaking Program at Douglas Education Center.

    Stanley Film Festival: Director Adam Egypt Mortimer on “SOME KIND OF HATE” and “BALLISTIC”

    After having experienced the gripping and gruesome neo-slasher SOME KIND OF HATE firsthand, this writer was excited to hear that the film was acquired so soon after it’s world premiere at the Stanley Film Festival. Yet the news wasn’t exactly the most surprising update either; the film showed clear, confident direction from a director who clearly understands (and subverts) the cinematic language of horror. And on the eve of the film’s premiere and the release of his absolutely bonkers graphic novel, BALLISTIC, FANGORIA sat down with Mortimer in the notoriously Stanley Hotel to talk about his disturbing directorial debut and touched upon his work both on screen and on the page…

    FANGO Flashback: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, SEASON 1″

    For all of the people in the world who follow each little step the technological world takes, especially in the way of consuming media, it’s no surprise that others clamor for a taste of the old and antiquated. Whether it be the resurgence of vinyl, the cult of VHS swapping or the renewed interest in the comic book industry, there’s definitive proof that there are people out there who will never be satiated by the offerings of the digital era.

    “The Sun is actually cold! It’s cold and empty, and all is lost! Greetings from Night Vale,” chimes a voice that is instantly recognizable as James Urbaniak, the VENTURE BROS. alum playing the part of senior Night Vale radio personality Leonard Burton as he dives us right into a clip show consisting entirely of clips we’ve never heard before. And as a result, we get a fascinating glimpse of Night Vale’s ancient and mysterious history.
