  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Comedian Jake Johannsen joins “MONSTER PARTY” to talk Evil Kid Horror!

    ,,,

    If there’s anything that the world can agree is a universally terrifying entity, it would be children. Time and time again, Hollywood (as well as independent films) are more than willing to remind fright fans of just how unsettling creepy kids can be. And with that in mind, the fearsome four sit at the kid’s table with comic royalty Jake Johannsen to discuss evil child horror on this week’s hilarious edition of MONSTER PARTY!

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: More “ALIEN” Franchise Dissection with “WOMEN IN CASKETS” on “THE RANTS MACABRE”!

    ,,,

    Last week, THE RANTS MACABRE brought aboard Dawn & Jen of the Women in Caskets Podcast for the first part of their ALIEN-centric podcasts, discussing Ridley Scott’s ALIEN, James Cameron’s ALIENS as well as ALIEN: ISOLATION and Ellen Ripley in general. The in-depth discussion touched upon everything from Ripley’s tragic story arc to Scott’s naturalistic (if controversial) approach to direction to the representation of the corporate greed in ALIENS, offering a fantastic introduction to a fun and thoughtful podcast crossover event. Now, that crossover continues with part two of THE RANTS MACABRE’s ALIEN franchise dissection, covering David Fincher’s ALIEN3 and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ALIEN: RESURRECTION.

  • Event Report: “MISERY” with Bruce Willis & Laurie Metcalf on Broadway

    ,,

    This writer must admit that it’s a bit surprising that not more horror takes to the stage in a serious context. Of course, there are the many macabre musicals that infuse the flamboyant Broadway attitude and the splattery, insane properties of horror films past, including musical adaptations of EVIL DEAD, RE-ANIMATOR and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. But the stage is rarely approached for traditionally frightening fare these days, even with the potential of genuinely frightening a room full of people being a logical step from the increasingly interactive haunt experience. But at least one live show is making the bold step of attempting to do so, and with a property that is beloved by many horror hounds: Stephen King’s MISERY, starring Bruce Willis, Laurie Metcalf and Leon Addison Brown.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Learn What Happened To “Michelle” on “THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW”!

    ,,,

    With two months of terrifying tales under their belt, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is only getting started with their nightmarish audio short story series. And while Clay McLeod Chapman & Hanna Cheek have already brought tales of haunted records, cannibalistic romance, Lovecraftian luridness and macabre motherhood to daring listeners, the FANGORIA Podcast Network’s second original series offers another spine-tingling story this week. And lest we bury the lead this time around, Clay gives a command performance in the latest slice of PUMPKIN PIE, entitled “Michelle.”

  • “SATANIC PANIC” (Book Review)

    ,,

    The ’80s: The doddering, bobble-headed Reagans, the Iran-Contra affair and the “Just Say No” slogan. New Wave. VHS and Betamax. Hair metal. Amazing genre films with killer practical FX. Any of these things may spring to mind when you think of that decadent decade, but some of you may recall the nefarious psychological plague that flung itself worldwide in search of cults, black magic, sacrifices and other dark rituals, to say nothing of heavy-metal singers testifying before Congress, murder and suicide by way of music and a decidedly devilish influence on horror films—as well as on GERALDO.

  • “THE STEAM MAN #2” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Every once in a while, a story comes along that seems so completely implausible, a fantasy of the most ridiculous order, that you swear it was written during the ‘70s psychedelic sci-fi pulp movement instead of the modern age of comics. THE STEAM MAN from Dark Horse is one of those titles; a work that proves that imagination has no limit and art has no cinematic budget, exploding onto the page with a mix of steampunk, sci-fi, horror, and western. Currently on its second issue, the work continues where it left off with issue #1, this time focusing not on our heroes hunting in a giant mechanical man but on the vampire that they pursue across the desolate wasteland of their world.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Podcasts Crossover on this “ALIEN”-centric Episode of “THE RANTS MACABRE”!

    ,,

    With an cinematic entry in every decade since the 1970s, the ALIEN franchise has truly been one of the most discussed, debated and dissected film series in the history of horror. With directors such as Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Paul W.S. Anderson (c’mon, guys, he did EVENT HORIZON!) offering entries of varying reputation, there will nary be two fright fans who feel exactly the same about the ALIEN franchise. And with that in mind, THE RANTS MACABRE offers four differing opinions in the first part of their ALIEN episodes, featuring a crossover appearance from Dawn & Jen of the Women in Caskets Podcast!

    That’s right: THE RANTS MACABRE hosts Darren & Mindy join the Women in Caskets to cover the first two entries in the ALIEN franchise, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror film ALIEN and James Cameron’s action-packed sequel ALIENS. The frightful four gets into every nook and cranny of these horror offerings, from Xenomorphs to behind-the-scenes details and the indomitable Ellen Ripley. You can check FREE episode below, and you can revisit ALIEN/ALIENS on DVD/Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

  • “OH THE FLESH YOU WILL EAT” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Most readers associate the name ‘Dr. Seuss’ with goofy, wholesome fun about elephants hearing invisible creatures and hat-wearing felines trashing houses simply because it’s funny. His clever rhymes have been celebrated for decades by parents and their brood, despite the good Doctor’s notorious fear of children. But haven’t you ever wanted to see Seuss’s work a bit more edgy? Perhaps instead of adorable creatures doing silly things, those said creatures are off killing the world or spreading disease?

  • Full Contact: “Dead of Night” and The Extreme Haunt Experience

    ,

    I met P.H. in a parking lot while waiting to be blindfolded and put into the trunk of a car. This wasn’t part of a kidnapping, just the method used for entering an immersive haunted house named Nyctophobia. P.H. stared me down menacingly before breaking into a laugh and admitting he wasn’t there to kidnap me, but was attending the haunt as well, and introduced himself as the creator of another extreme haunted house called Dead Of Night. My interest was piqued; I’d heard stories of Dead Of Night from locals, and knew it had recently been named one of the most intense haunts in the country by The Raven & Black Cat. P.H. promised this was going to be the strangest year yet, but wouldn’t say anymore except that it was happening November 13th and 14th of this year.  We exchanged contact information, and I convinced him to meet me for a chat the following week.
