    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…

    Return of the Dragon: Laurence Fishburne talks “HANNIBAL” Season 3!

    With Bryan Fuller taking his shot at editing FANGORIA #343, the wait for HANNIBAL to return has become an even more difficult endeavor for fright fans. However, Fuller was able to sneak FANGORIA onto the set of HANNIBAL last month, and we were able to catch up with the brilliant cast of the surreal series. Our third chat was with Jack Crawford himself, Laurence Fishburne, who returns for the brink of death to once again hunt Dr. Lecter…

    Stream to Scream: “HELLRAISER V: INFERNO”

    For a franchise nine films deep, it’s surprising that there are so few universally beloved HELLRAISER films. Aside from the undeniably frightening original and, arguably, the nightmarish fever dream of HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, each HELLRAISER film has a critically polarizing stance among fright fans, especially once the series’ transparent status of “existing scripts refashioned for HELLRAISER” comes into play. However, the first sequel to undergo said process is also one of the strongest of the HELLRAISER sequels, trading in a big-screen budget for a genuinely creepy and stylish affair that introduced the world to SINISTER/EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE director Scott Derrickson.

    “TWIN PEAKS” Revival Doubles Episode Order, Badalamenti to Return

    The journey from announcement to conception for Showtime’s TWIN PEAKS revival has been nearly as surreal and backwards as the series itself, with David Lynch’s exit and subsequent return being the the cherry on top. But now, it finally seems that everything is falling into place, and according to reliable fan site WELCOME TO TWIN PEAKS, the series will be back in a bigger way than any fan could have imagined as Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee made a few excellent announcements during the Twin Peaks’ panel at Seattle’s Crypticon.

    With Bryan Fuller taking his shot at editing FANGORIA #343, the wait for HANNIBAL to return has become an even more difficult endeavor for fright fans. However, Fuller was able to sneak FANGORIA onto the set of HANNIBAL last month, and we were able to catch up with the brilliant cast of the surreal series. Our second chat was with man behind HANNIBAL’s titular terror, actor Mads Mikkelsen, who offered up a tantalizing taste of what’s on Dr. Lecter’s plate this season…

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 8″ (TV Review)

    After Joe Dante’s contemplative, character-building episode last week, SALEM switches gears in the best way possible with it’s eighth episode “Dead Birds”, offering one of the most wicked episodes so far this season. Under the incredibly game and skilled direction of Alex Kalymnios, the script from Joe Menosky and Adam Simon offers an episode that oozes sex, gore, surrealism and legitimately powerful drama, all the while firmly wiping the cloud of mystery from our eyes as per the allegiances and strategies of the witch war. And in doing so, SALEM also confidently opens the audience to the world around our characters, diving into the past of Increase Mather as well as the reality around the fantasy that’s so often indulged in the series.

    Exclusive First Still, Comments: “BELLFLOWER” Producers’ Insane Action Follow-Up, “CHUCK HANK AND THE SAN DIEGO TWINS”

    For this writer, there are few films that were as unique, engrossing and breathtaking as Evan Glodell’s BELLFLOWER, an experimental love story with a truly independent aesthetic and taste for cinematic mayhem. After the film’s release, a close eye was kept on what would be next for Glodell and his Coatwolf production team. Sure enough, their next project was something even more suited for this writer’s sensibilities: CHUCK HANK AND THE SAN DIEGO TWINS, a love letter to side-scrolling video games and the anarchy-laden spirit of crazy ‘80s action filmmaking.
