  • FANGORIA Podcast Networks: On “THE RANTS MACABRE”, There Be “MONSTERS”!

    ,,

    As any horror fan can tell you, it’s all too common that a fright flick and its sequel be polar opposites in terms of content and characters. Whether it be ALIEN to ALIENS, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE to TCM2 or BLAIR WITCH to BOOK OF SHADOWS, many properties in the genre tend to take a 180-degree turn when it comes to their proper follow-ups. And it’s certainly with that in mind that this week’s THE RANTS MACABRE operates, as hosts Darren & Mindy check out both MONSTERS and its universe-sharing sequel MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT!

  • Exclusive Video Premiere: Mindless Self Indulgence’s “PERSONAL JESUS” Cover

    ,,

    Fans of horror might be familiar with the wild, reckless tunes of Mindless Self Indulgence, the nearly 20-year-old rock band that has shocked the masses to become one of the most divisive acts out there. And while lead singer Jimmy Urine has been more involved with the horror genre lately, churning out a creepy lullaby for THE HIVE and even performing on-screen for ALLELUIA! THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, Mindless Self Indulgence has given FANGORIA the exclusive premiere to their most terrifying music video yet: their Satanic spin on Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus”!

  • Release Date, First Episode Revealed for “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” Season Three!

    ,

    As all fright fans know, it’s not easy to get a film made, especially any horror film with any ambition and imaginative concepts. However, while many horror filmmakers flock to television, some are thinking outside the box as a way to pursue their creative endeavors. And though the last season- entirely comprised of live performances- hit audiences nearly two years ago, filmmakers Larry Fessenden (WENDIGO) and Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD) turned to the audio realm to fuel the minds of their cohorts via their radio plays TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Yet now, FANGORIA has some good news for fans of TALES, as well as a completely free way to get a terrifying taste of the show’s third season!

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Versions of “THE MONSTER MASH” from Bobby “Boris” Pickett

    ,,,

    It’s not very often that Halloween falls on a Saturday, but when it does, it poses a question to all lovers of festivities and frights: what “Monster Mash” should I play at my Halloween party? Obviously, with Bobby “Boris” Pickett having dedicated his life to performing the same song over and over with slight variations to the orchestration and lyrics, it’s not an easy choice to make and is guaranteed to lay on even more pressure to one’s Halloween plans. Luckily, FANGORIA’s resident novelty song expert and THE CONDEMNED enthusiast Madeleine Koestner took charge to provide horror hounds with the ten best Monster Mashes for their petrifying playlists.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Special “HALLOWEEN” Bonus Episode of “WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL”!

    ,,

    Halloween has come early this year, fright fans, as the FANGORIA Podcast Network has a treat for you all! Earlier this week, Joe DeRosa and Patrick Walsh dropped the latest episode of WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL, sitting down to ramble through and occasionally lambast LEPRECHAUN. However, little did FANGORIA know that Joe and Pat had a seasonal surprise for us all, and somehow, they found a film on Netflix that might be even more incredulous than LEPRECHAUN… HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION!

  • “THE BIRTH OF KITARO” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Monsters known as “yokai” have been part of Japanese folklore for as long as people have had reasons to fear the dark. The spooky creatures have proved so popular that not only are they still prevalent in modern popular culture, but have even welcomed contemporary monsters such as the Slit-Mouthed Woman or the half corpse of the Teke-teke, who first gained attention in the late ‘70s, into its fold. While comic-created Kitaro (inspired by a story card play) may not be an original yokai, he is credited with keeping the yokai spirit alive for over 55 years and has spawned numerous cartoons, shows, movies, video games, toys; basically anything you can slap that adorable little face on. Unfortunately, there’s almost no translated work for English readers… until now.

  • Doug Jones & Photographer Joshua Hoffine team for FX-heavy, Lovecraftian “INNSMOUTH” Project

    ,

    Despite having a film in theaters with CRIMSON PEAK and three successful television series air over the summer, I think fright fans can agree that there is simply not enough of Doug Jones in our lives. An extraordinary actor with or without a mountain of make-up, Jones is not only a talented performer but a genuine fan of horror in his own right, especially when it comes to classic terror tales and the Gothic. So therefore, it’s great and, admittedly, not too surprising to see Jones as the sole human element in the latest project from acclaimed horror photographer Joshua Hoffine, entitled INNSMOUTH!

  • Q&A: “KRAMPUS” Writers Todd Casey & Zach Shields talk “TRICK ‘R TREAT: DAYS OF THE DEAD”

    ,,

    If anything can be said about Legendary as a production entity, it’s that they are very loyal to their content creators. Cementing relationships with both Guillermo del Toro and Michael Dougherty in the horror world, Legendary has boldly taken a stance towards more fantastic and imaginative horror than one might expect from microbudget-friendly world of studio horror. And while this begets films like the gorgeously gothic CRIMSON PEAK and the upcoming Christmas chiller KRAMPUS, this also bleeds into their comic book production as well, as Legendary turned to KRAMPUS writers Todd Casey and Zach Shields for their latest descent into the TRICK ‘R TREAT universe, DAYS OF THE DEAD. FANGORIA caught up with Casey and Shields just in time for Halloween to talk about their haunting horror comic, working with Dougherty and what TRICK ‘R TREAT fans have in store…
