    Stanley Film Festival: Director Adam Egypt Mortimer on “SOME KIND OF HATE” and “BALLISTIC”

    After having experienced the gripping and gruesome neo-slasher SOME KIND OF HATE firsthand, this writer was excited to hear that the film was acquired so soon after it’s world premiere at the Stanley Film Festival. Yet the news wasn’t exactly the most surprising update either; the film showed clear, confident direction from a director who clearly understands (and subverts) the cinematic language of horror. And on the eve of the film’s premiere and the release of his absolutely bonkers graphic novel, BALLISTIC, FANGORIA sat down with Mortimer in the notoriously Stanley Hotel to talk about his disturbing directorial debut and touched upon his work both on screen and on the page…

    FANGO Flashback: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, SEASON 1″

    For all of the people in the world who follow each little step the technological world takes, especially in the way of consuming media, it’s no surprise that others clamor for a taste of the old and antiquated. Whether it be the resurgence of vinyl, the cult of VHS swapping or the renewed interest in the comic book industry, there’s definitive proof that there are people out there who will never be satiated by the offerings of the digital era. However, there does seem to be new middle ground in the form of podcasts, which offer old school radio aesthetics via a modern on-demand digital platform. And with the popularization of podcasts in the past several years, the format has seen new, innovative experiments to bring unique experiences other than the standard talk radio program.

    “SKULLCRACK CITY” (Book Review)

    Let’s face it: most books just sit there and let you read them. They’re like domesticated pets with stories. Some curl up in your lap and purr. Some prefer to wrestle a little, and may even draw occasional blood. Some don’t seem to care whether you’re interested or not. They’re in their own little world. You’re just along for the ride.

    Night Vale Nightmares #5: [Best of?]

    “The Sun is actually cold! It’s cold and empty, and all is lost! Greetings from Night Vale,” chimes a voice that is instantly recognizable as James Urbaniak, the VENTURE BROS. alum playing the part of senior Night Vale radio personality Leonard Burton as he dives us right into a clip show consisting entirely of clips we’ve never heard before. And as a result, we get a fascinating glimpse of Night Vale’s ancient and mysterious history. I do remember writing in the last review that I expected another interesting format tweak, and “[Best of?]” definitely lives up to those expectations.

    Etheria Film Night 2015 Announces Official Short Film Lineup

    For female directors in the horror genre, misrepresentation, discrimination and gender-driven obstacles have long been both the bane of their efforts whilst also a motivation to go above and beyond expectations. Said motivation has born many efforts to curb those mindsets, but above else, it’s led to more independent female filmmakers than ever exploring the dark recesses of their artistic sensibilities, allowing endeavors such as the annual Etheria Film Night to exist. And now, the 2015 edition of the event, which will be held at June 13th, 2015, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, has announced it’s official short selection, which will lead to the North American premiere of Ursula Dabrowsky’s INNER DEMON.

    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.
