  • “ASH VS. EVIL DEAD: Season 2, Episodes 1 & 2” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For EVIL DEAD fans, the first season of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD reintroduced the original franchise’s canon in a way that felt organic yet modernized. While the ARMY OF DARKNESS iteration of Ashley J. Williams was given a 21st Century polish, revitalized with one-liners and a “dismember first, ask questions later” attitude, the series itself brought more to the table: more characters, more mythology, and much, much more violence. But if anything could be said about the first season, it’s that- despite a killer pilot- the series didn’t quite find it’s footing until it pointed us back to the EVIL DEAD cabin. However, if one were to argue that the CGI-heavy gore and fan service of the first season did ASH VS. EVIL DEAD a disservice, season two has definitely recognized and corrected its weaknesses, offering a noticeably more confident attitude and some outright insane moments you’ll have to see to believe.

  • Fantastic Fest 2016: “RAW” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As a genre fan, you may have noticed a bit of a trend, recently. Each year, between all the midnight programming and genre festivals, the horror audience has tended to latch onto one film, championing it not just as the best of the year, but the best movie “since.” THE BABADOOK, IT FOLLOWS, THE WITCH, movies you hear about from everyone you know, everywhere you look. Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc, rave about how such-and-such is this year’s surprise runaway hit that you can’t afford to miss.

  • Rest in Peace, Herschell Gordon Lewis (1929 – 2016)

    ,,

    While there are many filmmakers that the horror community have dubbed “Masters of Horror,” few deserved the title more than Herschell Gordon Lewis. Sadly, Lewis is not as well known as many Masters such as George A. Romero, Roger Corman and Wes Craven, but that’s because Lewis’ brand of horror was far from all-inclusive. In many ways, Lewis was one of the first truly transgressive American filmmakers, introducing a whole generation to exploitation cinema, loaded with gore, nudity, and shocking subject matter that one wouldn’t dare include in mainstream cinema. He was a filmmaker whose work inspired and titillated, building a cult of followers as large and vocal as his detractors. But now, sadly, FANGORIA is sad to report that Lewis, also known as “The Godfather of Gore,” has passed away at the age of 87.

  • Fantastic Fest 2016: “HEADSHOT” (Film Review)

    ,,

    HEADSHOT starts with a bang– several, actually, as vicious gangster Lee stages a bloody prison break. Dozens of prison guards and prisoners alike are mowed down in a shootout, bones are broken, and copious amounts of blood are spilled. This all before the title ever hits the screen. It only gets better from there. The latest martial arts masterpiece out of a country that appears increasingly adept at creating them, HEADSHOT comes to us by way of Indonesian directors (and Fangoria favorites) Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto, better known as The Mo Brothers.

  • NYC! Win A Mondo LP at Next Week’s “BLACK SWAN” Screening at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    ,

    It’s no surprise to the majority of fright fans that the Academy Awards and the horror genre don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. Horror films are notably less prolific come award season than somber dramas, and often times, these films have to permanently adopt the “thriller” subgenre to even be considered for an award, such as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS). Yet sometimes, a tried-and-true horror title happens to fall through the cracks and grab Oscar gold, and one of the last films to do so was Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN. So it’s exciting for this writer to hear that not only will NYC’s current genre hub Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers will be bringing BLACK SWAN back to the big screen next week as a part of their Mondo x Chiller series, but two lucky attendees will be going home with a limited edition soundtrack LP!

    As a proponent of Blu-ray collector culture, this writer feels ever closer to the finish line when it comes to the most desired horror titles in HD. While there are a select few essential hold-outs that are still not on Blu-ray anywhere in the world- films like WISHMASTER, THE BIRTHDAY, and THE MANGLER, for instance, the marketplace has done a phenomenal job of meeting the demands of the fervent horror fanbase. For instance, the recent inspired resurrection of Vestron Video, which is doing a saintly job of bringing campy cult classics to Blu-ray. Now, the boutique label is unveiling the new artwork and details for their final releases for 2016: C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3!
