    Event Report: Dark MoFo Festival, Part Three

    Nestled among the comings and goings of Hobart town, was a scavenger hunt of art installations hidden in plain sight, waiting for the sunset that happened all too soon each day. The art lived by night. Scattered throughout the golden triangle, down by the water, behind buildings, and in blackened warehouses, the art was accessible to anyone who wanted to look, and participation was one step further. Creatures lurked in the botanical gardens and a ghost ship drifted on the open water. The massive Fire Organ grunted and huffed flames, like a post industrial dragon caught on a parking lot stage. A giant demon sculpture with fierce eyes and protruding breasts and belly, and a car sized fish with open mouth, collected written fears from hundreds of people on to it’s sharp teeth, and was burned in a mass purification ceremony at the end of the week on the evening of the solstice. I filled my paper with anxieties written extra small to fit as much as possible, and hoped that no one snatched my secrets from the jaws of the beast before the incineration (one additional fear). a theme repeated, let not fear guide you here.

    Reboots are a fact of life these days, and not just with films but with video games as well. Recently, DEVIL MAY CRY was rebooted into a more modern experience with DMC: Devil May Cry. But this shouldn’t (and doesn’t) diminish the original series or the love for it that culminated in DEVIL MAY CRY 4: SPECIAL EDITION. In fact, it rather brings us to the definitive edition recently released by Capcom for digital download.

    FIOFF ’15: Opening Demented Doors for the Future of Festival Shorts!

    With the recent announcement of FANGORIA’s International Online Film Festival, many in the horror community have wondered what exactly this will mean for the genre as well as the film festival experience. However, the logic behind such a leap is rather sound: the marketplace is changing, the audience is changing and there are hardcore horror fans whose location and income keep them from ever getting a real film festival experience. And while the prestigious and proven festivals will continue to shine and bring the community together for years to come, FANGORIA recognizes the potential to debut fresh, new nightmares to a whole world of fright fans.

    “FRAGMENTS OF HORROR” (Comic Book Review)

    Japanese horror manga is a small but popular percentage of comics that come from the Land of the Rising Sun. While most fans are aware of the more popular titles such as ATTACK ON TITAN and HELLSING, there is a whole world of unexplored, smaller works that are more akin to the traditional horror of demons, ghosts, and madness. One of the most prolific creators to contribute to the genre is manga master Junji Ito. Most recognized for his works-turned-movies TOMIE and UZUMAKI, Ito has written and drawn an endless array of mind-boggling works ranging from black comedy to the perverted terrors of the human mind and the merciless universe and, thanks to Viz Media, we are once again graced with a new collection of his translated works titled FRAGMENTS OF HORROR. Both written and illustrated by Ito, it’s an easy introduction to his work for new fans while still keeping true to the intense nature to which seasoned fans have grown accustomed.

    Exclusive Report: Dark MoFo Fest, Part II

    Flying in from the mainland of Australia to Launceston Tasmania, the lighthearted  mood had changed. It was much colder, and spirits and ghosts were noticeably among us. Tragedy hung over the island in the low lying clouds and even wearing three pairs of pants, I couldn’t shake the chill, with cold winds from the Antarctic pole blowing, and I was there all alone.

    “KUROSAGI CORPSE DELIVERY SERVICE, VOLUME 14″ (Comic Book Review)

    After a nearly two and half year wait between volumes, Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service volume 14 finally hits US shores later this month. While many may fear that the wait would spoil the expectation, the newest arrival is just as good as the previous volumes. While definitely a horror comic, KCDS has always focused more on exploring Japanese death rites and fulfilling the last wishes of the dearly departed, and volume 14 expands on this premise as the five central figures go about finding fresh bodies and bringing them home, wherever it may be. It’s an exceptional piece of philosophic horror from our friends across the ocean and is an easy gateway for those who wish to read Japanese manga but prefer a more mature work.
