  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Films Where Terror Takes Place Outdoors

    ,,

    Summer is finally here. The air is warm, the sun is bright, and it’s time to enjoy the outdoors. With this time of year comes swimming, hiking, camping, and exploring. Back are the days when it feels great to simply stroll along under the trees in your neighborhood. There’s something peaceful about being away from other people, alone or with a few friends in the calm of a park, the cover of the woods, or in the seclusion of a hiking trail. But there’s also something unsettling about it. There’s no one in sight, and when that hushed silence registers in your mind, it’s a harsh reminder that you are all alone… aren’t you?

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage Horror Teasers!

    ,,

    The art of the trailer has certainly been lost over the years, as the need to sell a film often leads to showing more and more crucial footage, spoiling surprises, or even worse: cutting something to look as generic as possible. Gone are the days of clever teasers; instead, we now have teasers for teasers, red-band trailers and TV spots that just show way too much. So for this week’s edition of Found Footage… For Real, we’ve dug up three vintage horror teasers to show the new generation of trailer cutters how it’s really done.

  • FANGO Flashback: “PRISON”

    ,,

    For longtime readers of FANGORIA.com, this writer’s affection for the work of Renny Harlin has been well-documented. With genuinely awesome cinematic offerings such as MINDHUNTERS, DEEP BLUE SEA, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART IV, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, DIE HARD 2 and CLIFFHANGER under his belt, few directors can capture the spirit of popcorn entertainment better than Harlin. Even his cinematic missteps- FORD FAIRLANE, DEVIL’S PASS and EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING- are perhaps hobbled by their own ambition, and the fact that they still are fairly entertaining in their own right is a testament to Harlin’s work as a filmmaker. Yet unfortunately, too few horror hounds have seen one of Harlin’s legitimately best terror titles: the 1988 haunting thriller PRISON.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Jim Gillespie’s Award-Winning Short Film, “JOYRIDE”!

    ,,

    In the wild world of Hollywood, there are numerous dream archetypes by which most filmmakers hope to find themselves eventually inhabiting. For some, it’s that one’s screenplay reaches the right person on the right day at the right time, launching them into a career not unlike Quentin Tarantino or Shane Black. For others, it’s the path more frequently taken, especially as video hosting has become the norm: a filmmaker directs a short, it gets seen by the right people, and the next thing they know, they’re running full-speed on the path of becoming the next go-to studio director. And while that dream may not be a complete fantasy- just ask genre directors such as Andres Muschietti, Fede Alvarez or David Sanberg-, the pure glut of short films on the web and in festivals nowadays has turned those chances into those akin to hitting the lottery.
