  • Q&A: Actress Kika Magalhaes on “THE EYES OF MY MOTHER”

    ,,

    Even with the number of excellent horror performances coming out of the independent genre filmmaking scene in recent months, one certainly may have a hard time finding one as absolutely spellbinding as Kika Magalhaes in Nicolas Pesce’s brooding art-house horror film, THE EYES OF MY MOTHER. With a mixture between innocent naivety, amoral fascination, and predatory instincts, Magalhaes delivers a commanding performance that’s guaranteed to dig into your brain and leave you shaken. With the film now in select theaters and on VOD, FANGORIA caught up with Magalhaes about bringing to life a visceral villain you don’t see coming, and how her own personal darkness bled into that of her character in THE EYES OF MY MOTHER…

  • Exclusive Deleted Scene: Humanoid Horror in Luke Scott’s “MORGAN”

    ,

    Produced by Ridley Scott and featuring a powerhouse dream cast– Kate Mara, Toby Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti– Luke Scott’s directorial debut MORGAN delves into the potential dark side of our increasingly BRAVE NEW WORLD-esque existence, introducing us to a young not-quite-human girl bioengineered in a lab by scientists wrestling with the strange ethics of how to harness the power of a creation which, as the ad copy notes, “presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.” And, as one might guess from Jennifer Jason Leigh’s massive face trauma in the FANGO exclusive deleted scene clip below, this particular battle of the wills ain’t going so well for science at the moment. Humanoid Hybrid: 1. Eggheads: Zero.

  • Q&A: Actor Stephen Lang on “DON’T BREATHE”

    ,,

    Who could have started off 2016 guessing that this year’s most terrifying cinematic villain would be a blind, old war veteran? Well, at least one person might have: Stephen Lang, who embodies the nameless Blind Man from Fede Alvarez’s heart-stopping horror/thriller DON’T BREATHE. Stealing scenes and scaring audiences in the sleeper hit of the summer, Lang delivered a fantastically frightening yet surprisingly multi-dimensional portrayal of a tormented man gone mad, and with the film now hitting DVD/Blu-ray, FANGORIA spoke to the season thespian about breathing life into DON’T BREATHE…

  • “SHUT IN” (Film Review)

    ,,

    One of the things I love about horror is it dares to openly explore dark subject matter, and Farren Blackburn’s SHUT IN reminded me of how intriguing it is when psychological issues are explored from a horror point of view. Giving a deep and fascinating portrayal of guilt and insanity, SHUT IN excelled at the exploration of both emotions centered around the experiences of it’s protagonist, Mary, vividly played by Naomi Watts. And for this writer, SHUT IN works so powerfully because how well the film places the audience in the center of Mary’s insanity.

  • Rest In Peace Don Calfa (1939 – 2016)

    ,

    Just a few days short of his 77th birthday, FANGORIA is sad to report that cult film and horror icon Don Calfa has passed away, as per various reports from his former co-stars. A fine performer and convention stalwart, Calfa’s standing in the genre film community was never questioned, and while he was long overdue for a career renaissance akin to his more prolific counterparts, Calfa’s work certainly speaks for itself, and will remain to do so for years to come.

  • Viral Finnish Short Film “NIGHTSATAN” To Spill More Blood as Feature Film!

    ,

    In the wave of nostalgia-driven art that has hit over the past few years, you’d be hard-pressed to find something as truly as weird or as insane as Chrzu’s NIGHTSATAN AND THE LOOPS OF DOOM.

Of course, this naturally means that NIGHTSATAN’s adventures are not yet finished, and with your help, you can help NIGHTSATAN become the gory, bizarre feature film it’s meant to be!

    As countless broken hearts and rock ‘n’ roll bands can tell you, love hurts.

With the film having wrapped up its festival run earlier this year, FANGORIA caught up with Torrens to talk about the film’s FX, lurid love stories, and find the perfect pair of performers for PET…

  • “MR. NEIGHBOR’S HOUSE” (TV Review)

    ,

    As someone who was raised on both horror and comedy, this writer has been somewhat of a fervent fan of Adult Swim’s particular brand of genre-fluid programming. From their deep cut horror references in shows like AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE and EAGLEHEART to their more outwardly demented material such as their “Infomercial” series, Brett Gelman DINNER specials and YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL, Adult Swim has been steering their ship to the weirder and more wicked tides as of late. Their latest effort, the one-off “holiday” special entitled MR. NEIGHBOR’S HOUSE, is yet another step towards the unsettling, providing a bleak and nightmarish alternative to happy-go-luck children’s programming such as MR. ROGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD and PEE WEE’S PLAYHOUSE.

    ,

    Before he became the shepherd of Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films, James Gunn was once the golden boy of Troma Entertainment, which he then followed with such twisted films as SLITHER and SUPER. But as Gunn found himself preoccupied with the second GUARDIANS flick, the writer/producer turned to WOLF CREEK franchise mastermind Greg McLean and THE CONJURING producer Peter Safran to bring his most shocking horror story yet to life: THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, which debuted to acclaim and quick acquisition following its premiere at TIFF 2016. Now, with BH Tilt and the recently revived Orion Pictures teaming to bring this ultraviolent ensemble picture to multiplexes nationwide, the first NSFW trailer for THE BELKO EXPERIMENT has arrived, and luckily, it doesn’t spoil too much, with only hints of the carnage that awaits…
