    30 for 31: “POPCORN” (1991)

    I’m thrilled to see 1991’s POPCORN finding a new pulse with a whole new generation of viewers. The film just recently screened as part of Los Angeles’s Beyond Fest, and Synapse has a snazzy Blu-ray of the movie coming in early 2015, which is awesome considering this film previously never made it past the original VHS release. This loving tribute to gimmick films of the 1950s and 60s, predating Joe Dante’s MATINEE, is as gruesome as it is fun.

    Shadowvision: “DRESSED TO KILL”

    Welcome to Shadowvision, a regular column in which Fangoria.com revisits modern horror films in black-and-white. The purpose is to analyze these films through a new lens, seeing if the classically informed viewing experience will give a new angle to familiar images. If you’d like to watch along at home, it’s simple: go into your TV settings and desaturate the picture completely, then adjust the contrast and brightness to fit either standard or high definition.

    Q&A: Checking in with Rob Zombie and “31”

    If I’m honest, I don’t know why exactly musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie is presently doing a round of interviews. The performer is currently in the midst of recording a new album, as well as running a polarizing crowdfunding campaign for 70s set Halloween-horror 31, yes, but neither are at a stage of completion. If anything, the opportunity seemed one to simply “check in” with Rob Zombie, one that fans and FANGORIA would take advantage of regardless.

    30 for 31: “DEAD OF NIGHT” (1977)

    Like many great discoveries throughout history, I stumbled upon DEAD OF NIGHT completely by accident. I was actually trying to hunt down a copy of Simon Hunter’s DEAD OF NIGHT from 1999, and knowing how rare and expensive that film could be, I headed to my favorite video store in hopes of renting it instead of having to plunk down over $50 for a copy. I asked the owner (who is pretty much a living version of Internet Movie Database), if they had DEAD OF NIGHT (1999), and to my surprise, they had hundreds of movie called “Dead of Night”!

    Phil Anselmo on Housecore, Horror and All Things Heavy

    When it comes to heavy metal and horror movies, there are few as well versed as Phil Anselmo. His many years fronting the likes of Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual and others has been the fuel that feeds the proverbial hellfire of his encyclopedic knowledge of all things loud, abrasive, bloody and terrifying. To celebrate these obsessions, he co-founded the Housecore Horror Film Festival, an unparalleled extravaganza dedicated to all forms of Hollywood’s bastard offspring. With its second installment set to wreak havoc upon Austin, Texas from October 23-26, Phil wants nothing more than to use the Housecore to share his compulsions from the grandest of stages – and he wants everyone to join him.
