  • The Disappearance of Garret Weaver: My Stanley Film Festival Experience

    ,

    After learning about the Stanley Film Festival last year, I knew that the festival was going to be a necessary destination in 2015. It had everything that this writer could have ever asked for in a horror festival: an interactive horror immersion game, a line-up of reportedly fantastic genre titles and a legendary location that’s supposedly one of the most haunted estates in America. So when I learned that I would be representing FANGORIA at the beloved festival, I knew that I would be in for a treat, although admittedly, I had no idea truly what I would be walking into.

  • Event Report: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE LIVE!” at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival

    ,,

    From everything I could gather out of last year’s Stanley Film Festival, one of the most fun and engaging events was none other than the live rendition of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, Glenn McQuaid and Larry Fessenden’s series of macabre radio plays. Ripe with excellent writing, strong performances and the live spectacle of foley work and musical accompaniment, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE was the highlight of FANGORIA’s coverage last year at Stanley Film Festival. So with high expectations in mind, this writer made sure the live TALES was at the top of his agenda at the Stanley Film Festival, especially once I heard both Barbara Crampton and Leon Vitali would be among the performers.

  • “HARROW COUNTY #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Nothing quite hits the horror fan in the heart like a good Southern ghost story, what with their weeping willows, cursed towns and cemeteries that stretch for miles into the setting sun. Throw in a wise old man mumbling about how much “you don’t want to go down that road,” and you’re all set. HARROW COUNTY #1 takes all that classic imagery, paints it in earth-worn colors of the farmland and sets it free to terrorize your overly religious aunt. While perhaps more of an homage to classic horror than a wholly original piece, it is the comics dedication to giving its readers the perfect subtle scares while staying true to the old school ‘haints’ of the South that really gives it a voice.

  • “THE DEVASTATOR: HORROR” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    It’s hard to do a good horror satire without it coming off as completely cheesy, lazy, or just plain unoriginal. Many scary comedy films are dropped into pit of rolling eyeballs and exasperated sighs as their over-the-top approach to horror tropes fall short of being funny or entertaining. Luckily, the good folks at Devastator Press don’t have this problem; dedicated to poking fun at every aspect of entertainment and society, THE DEVASTATOR has released its most recent pack of rabid reviewers on their horror issue. Writers from The Onion, THE DAILY SHOW, and Adult Swim among others add to this 60-page behemoth of comics, stories, illustrations and fake reviews all poking fun at Fangoria’s bread and butter. Frankly, they couldn’t have done it any better.

  • Confirmed: Guillermo del Toro’s “SILENT HILLS” Cancelled by Konami

    ,

    While 2014 found many long-anticipated horror video games hitting consoles, including the FANGO Cover-donning THE EVIL WITHIN, there was nothing that scared gamers more effectively and unexpectedly as P.T. (short for “playable teaser”), the demo level for Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima’s upcoming SILENT HILLS, which was being developed by Konami and aimed to star WALKING DEAD icon Norman Reedus. But after a long-development process, SILENT HILLS, which was due to hit Playstation consoles in 2016, has hit several obstacles, the largest being Kojima’s abrupt exit from the project to further work on METAL GEAR SOLID V. And despite Konami’s claim that they were to make SILENT HILLS  with or without Kojima, social media reports following Guillermo del Toro’s appearance at the San Francisco International Film Festival have stated the project itself may be dead.
