    Fango Flashback: “THE VANISHING” (a/k/a “SPOORLOOS”)

    As graphic as the genre can be at times, the truth about horror is that our greatest nightmares are the constructs of our own imagination. Albeit now a generic statement, the most frightening things about reality come from the unknown, as our conceivable thoughts can paint a picture much worse than reality. However, at the same time, people understand that there are truly sick individuals out there in the world, and in rare occasions, our imaginations have nothing on what horrors people are capable of for seemingly no reason. And it’s that terrifying double standard that fuels the obsession at the heart of George Sluizer’s THE VANISHING (a/k/a SPOORLOOS), and the brief glimmer of hope that takes us down the darkest depths of the human soul.

    FANTASTICA Presents: The Bad Romances of Horror

    With our inaugural issue of FANTASTICA hitting exclusively in our upcoming Valentine’s Box, we over here at FANGORIA would like to give you fright fans a taste of what to expect. And with Valentine’s Day itself creeping around the corner, it’s only appropriate for our focus to turn to the more romantic aspects of the horror genre.

    Fango Flashback: “THE VAGRANT” (1992)

    When people think about Mel Brooks and the horror genre, they usually go to one of two things: Brooks’ spoofs of horror (YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, HIGH ANXIETY and DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT) or his Brooksfilms genre productions, which brought the likes of David Lynch and David Cronenberg to mainstream audiences for the first time. But while those films are the most prolific of his horror-related productions, the one Brooksfilm production that most represented Mel Brooks’ sensibilities for comedy and horror has been unfortunately overlooked for over two decades now: Chris Walas’ horror-comedy THE VAGRANT.

    For Your Consideration: Marilyn Burns for the FANGORIA Hall of Fame

    As loyal and longtime readers of FANGORIA know, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame is one that holds significance among the horror community. To become a part of the Hall of Fame, you need to be voted in collectively by fright fans themselves, which is a much more difficult task than one might imagine. And while in the 35 years FANGORIA has existed, there are still some icons who have yet to make the list (such as Lugosi and Karloff), some of the greatest talents in horror history have made the list throughout the years, such as Stephen King, Christopher Lee, John Carpenter and Sigourney Weaver.

    The Dreadful Ten: Ken’s Horror Blu-ray Wishlist for 2015!

    As a cinema collector, the seemingly booming business of specialty Blu-ray distributors has been an especially wonderful landscape to watch grow. Over the course of only a few years, hard-to-find titles from throughout horror history have found their way to new media releases, and often times looking better than ever. To that point, it’s a costly endeavor to keep up with the excellent titles offered by the likes of Scream Factory, Grindhouse Releasing, Synapse Films, Blue Underground, The Criterion Collection and Twilight Time, but worthwhile once you’ve seen their work in action.
