    “GRINDHOUSE: DOORS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT, VOLUME 2″ (Comic Review)

    Comic books and grindhouse films are practically family: with both having been accused of not only corrupting America’s youth but lowering the standards of entertainment as a whole, it would only be a matter of time before these long lost twins would once again cross paths. Enter Dark Horse’s new horror series GRINDHOUSE, an unapologetic kitsch work that bridges the gap between the titans while embracing the exploitative nature of the late 1970’s low budget horror phenomena. While perhaps the not first comic to take the path of “low-brow murder porn,” GRINDHOUSE is one of the few to have done it so well, with some of Dark Horses finest talent adding their own personal touches of the macabre.

    Q&A: Leigh Whannell on “THE MULE”

    Out of all the screenwriters currently working in horror, there’s as few as prolific and busy as SAW/INSIDIOUS scribe Leigh Whannell. With 2 major studio releases hitting next year, Whannell still takes the time out to write, produce and act in several indie projects. And while Whannell has his own words about his upcoming genre releases, he’s relishing a whole different kind of horror in his latest independent film, the Australian crime comedy THE MULE. Whannell recently spoke to FANGORIA about offering a new kind of body horror, returning to his cultural roots and working with his INSIDIOUS co-star Angus Sampson on THE MULE…

    “BUSTER VOODOO” (Book Review)

    I’ve been itching to review this unique, provocative, haunted and heartbreaking horror novel since I devoured it in one round-trip flight, two long crazy months ago. Being busy as shit has kept me from doing so, and it kills me, because I’d like to flood you with the kind of detailed richness that this book deserves, and I’m afraid my overloading memory banks may not be up to the task.

    Exclusive: When Will We See The Original “STRAIN” Pilot, Featuring John Hurt & Lance Henriksen?

    With the current (and seemingly unstoppable) boom of horror television, one of the most divisive entries among fans is THE STRAIN, FX’s adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s trilogy of vampire novels. With an astounding cast, an experienced showrunner in Carlton Cuse and incredible SFX work, THE STRAIN had almost as many vocal supporters as it did detractors, although the show’s audience has earned it a second season nonetheless. And while THE STRAIN certainly isn’t a perfect horror series (and what horror series is?), the show also had the dual-edge sword of early buzz, cemented by positive reactions to the feature-length, Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot.

    Q&A: Nick Damici on “LATE PHASES”

    If you’re a fan of indie horror (and we surely hope you are), the name “Nick Damici” should be familiar. After all, Damici has been turning in memorable roles for years in truly haunting terror tales such as IN THE CUT, STAKE LAND and WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the latter two with longtime collaborator Jim Mickle. However, Damici’s latest venture, Adrian Bogliano’s LATE PHASES, brings the actor into new genre territory, giving him one of the most challenging roles of his career while squaring off against fully realized, practical werewolves. Damici recently spoke to FANGORIA about LATE PHASES, acting blind and butting heads with a FANGORIA Hall of Famer…

    “PRISONER 489″ & The Growing ‘Cult’ of Joe R. Lansdale

    For years, Joe R. Lansdale embodied the very definition of ‘cult’ author, adored by a fervent but fringe audience first introduced to his writing through its membership in the explicit Splatterpunk movement—a literary scene in which horror writers competed to push the envelope of gore, amorality, and taboo sexuality until it burst.

    Blood in the Snow Q&A: Chad Archibald on “EJECTA”

    As genre fans may or may not know, the favorite parlor game regarding Hollywood stars is Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. In the Canadian indie horror scene, Guelph, Ontario-based Chad Archibald is becoming just as much of a ubiquitous presence as he finds himself involved in a large number of fright films. His company, Black Fawn Distribution, is in the business of releasing exciting new Canadian horror films, such as the acclaimed SILENT RETREAT and DISCOPATH. Archibald works as a director, screenwriter and producer for Black Fawn Films, which he co-owns with fellow multi-hyphenates Christopher Giroux and Cody Callahan.

    Exclusive: Which Horror Maestro Advised Leigh Whannell on “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3″?

    When it comes to next year’s surprisingly sparse horror slate, few films are as highly anticipated as Leigh Whannell’s directorial debut, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3. With Whannell’s prolific slate as a scribe and actor in the horror genre, it was only a matter of time before he found his way into the director’s chair, and what better chance than to take over on the terrifying franchise he has personally guided? And with James Wan’s very specific cinematic vision, fans of the franchise are excited to see what Whannell can bring to the table both narratively and stylistically.
