    Recap: The 2014 Eyegore Awards & Universal Hollywood Horror Nights

    For those who do not know, the Eyegore awards are the “bad-ass version of the Oscars”, according to the fantastic Danny Trejo who presented a Gargoyle statuette to long time ‘compadre’ Robert Rodriguez at Friday night’s award ceremony held at Universal Studios. Yet the awards also mark the beginning of the Halloween season each year and honor outstanding artists in horror, as well as raising the curtain for the horror mazes at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

    “ASMODEXIA” (Movie Review)

    There have been so many exorcism movies by now, especially in the last decade, that it almost seems beside the point to complain about them. Better to seek out the more interesting variations on the well-traveled form, one of which is Marc Carreté’s ASMODEXIA.

    Q&A: Justin Long on Kevin Smith’s “TUSK”

    Though he’s appeared in such blockbusters as LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, DODGEBALL and GALAXY QUEST, horror fans remember actor Justin Long best for his genre gigs in JEEPERS CREEPERS, DRAG ME TO HELL and the much underrated AFTER.LIFE. Now the former Mac guy has turned in the most astonishing and challenging work of his career in director Kevin Smith’s jaw-dropping horror yarn TUSK, now in theaters from A24. Long plays a sleazy podcaster who meets his match in eccentric lunatic Michael Parks (of Smith’s RED STATE), who—SPOILER ALERT—transforms the imprisoned man into a sea mammal!

    “NO GOOD DEED” (Movie Review)

    Last week, at practically the last minute, Sony/Screen Gems cancelled press screenings of NO GOOD DEED, leaving critics to trek to theaters to see it. The ostensible reason was to protect the movie’s final-act surprise (which isn’t much), rather than the movie itself (which is even less).

    Exclusive: Director Richard Gray talks the “AUDITION” remake

    One of the most attention-grabbing recent bits of remake news involved an English-language take on AUDITION (pictured above), the modern-classic 1999 shocker that helped cement the international rep of Japanese bad-boy director Takashi Miike. FANGORIA got an exclusive chat with the redux’s director, Richard Gray, who reveals that he’s going back to the source for his version.

    Fantastic Fest Shorts Preview: Fredrik S. Hana’s Seaside Scare, “AUTUMN HARVEST”

    The winner of Fantastic Fest’s 2013 Short Fuse Program, Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik S. Hana returns to Austin this year with for the World Premiere of his atmospheric seaside tale AUTUMN HARVEST. His latest is a change of setting—the winning ANGST, PISS AND DRID was a squalid, interior work of human horror, while AUTUMN HARVEST is more ethereal and nature-based—but maybe not pace. Hana is clearly focused on sensory cinema, and like several of the 2014 short films (of which FANGORIA is a proud sponsor), unfolds largely dialogue-free.

    “THE EDITOR” (TIFF Movie Review)

    For anyone raised on bleary-eyed marathons of VHS and DVD rentals, the five lunatics known as Astron-6 have been a delightful, new lurid pleasure. Through films like FATHER’S DAY and MANBORG, they’ve developed a signature tone, often pitched somewhere between parody and homage. They clearly love bargain bin trash movies. They just love laughing at them as well, and their movies toe the line between those two extremes. THE EDITOR is their latest and by far most ambitious feature, which applies the Astron-6 treatment to the giallo. It’s kind of a perfect mix, given that gialli tend to be stylistically gorgeous and magically, hilariously dumb in just the right ways. And the guys clearly know the genre well. THE EDITOR is not simply an Argento homage. Even flicks like HITCH HIKE get a moment in the spotlight.
