    Q&A: Filmmaker Jake Dibeler on “HORRORPORN” and Horror at the NYC Porn Festival!

    This weekend’s inaugural New York City Porn Festival not only hopes to revive “a 42nd street 1980’s cinema experience” en route to re-establishing “adult film as a significant and socially/culturally relevant art form,” it is also throwing a fellow renegade film genre an—ahem—bone with a block of sexually explicit horror films under the fittingly blunt headline ‘EXTREME.’ This special program will include Barbara Bell’s GRAPHIC SEXUAL HORROR, Anon’s demon baby WET NURSE TRILOGY, and Jake Dibeler’s stylish, gore-laden berserker HORRORPORN. FANGORIA caught up with Diebler ahead of the fest to talk outré mediums/expressions, dark intersections, and material seriously not for the faint of heart.

    “FRANKENSTEIN UNDERGROUND” (Comic Book Review)

    It’s tough to be Frankenstein’s monster. When you’re not being hunted, shot at, or chased out of town by a horde of angry, fire-wielding villagers, you’re accidently killing everything you love. But, thanks to his seemingly immortal life (and license-free image) horror fans are treated to new tales and re-imaginings of his sordid existence by everyone from movie directors to comic creators. Once again, we are presented with the further adventures of the hulking figure via Mike Mignola’s endless imagination, which puts Frankenstein’s monster deep into the jungles of Mexico. Forgoing blood and violence for a more philosophical approach to the creature, FRANKENSTEIN UNDERGROUND explores how deep human fear can go.

    Q&A: “THE END IN ALL BEGINNINGS” Author John F.D. Taff

    Interested in what awaits between the covers of THE BELL WITCH author John F.D. Taff’s fantastic recent novella collection THE END IN ALL BEGINNINGS? Imagine a series of round robin stories penned collaboratively by Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, Harlan Ellison, and Rod Serling, and you’ll be in the general neighborhood: lush, poetic, ceaselessly imaginative, seriously affecting, multifaceted modern horror fiction. FANGORIA caught up with Taff last week to chat about the dark side of literature, what it takes to be emotionally honest with a blank page, the upside of pain and tragedy, and that “King of Pain” moniker he’s picked up…

    For Your Consideration: The 2015 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Actor!

    With the Chainsaw Award voting still in session, FANGORIA believes that every nominee deserves a fair shot at the award in question. Yet when it comes to performances, the objective nature of cinema really takes a hold of the voter: fans of one kind of particular horror may disregard a contender altogether if they believe their project to be not their “type of horror.” Nevertheless, FANGORIA wants to shine a light on these nominees to give voters a better understanding of what makes their performances stand out within the genre this year.

    “CANNIBAL!: THE MUSICAL LIVE!” (Stage Show Review)

    Here’s a confession: this writer isn’t exactly enamored with the overly-referential satire found in Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s long-running cartoon SOUTH PARK, nor by the crass, classless humor that titillated BOOK OF MORMON’s Broadway audiences. There is, obviously, no shortage of admirers out there eager to chow down on another helping of Parker’s brand of laughs, so take the preceding as context for the following review.

    Event Report: FANGORIA’s “WYRMWOOD” Screening at NYC’s IFC Center!

    Last night, FANGORIA fans packed the house at NYC’s excellent IFC Center, which served as host for our free screening of IFC Midnight’s Australian zombie shoot-’em-up WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD. And while many in the horror community have complained about the surge of zombie fiction in post-WALKING DEAD pop culture, it’s this writer’s pleasure to say that WYRMWOOD is a kick-ass return to form for the genre, which brings some innovation and humor to the petrifying proceedings in a big way.
