  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horrors We’d Like To See in 3D, Part 2!

    ,,

    Six months ago, FANGORIA posted an edition of our beloved Dreadful Ten column focusing on the fright flicks we would most want to see in 3D, if ever given the chance. And while post-conversion 3D has a bad name among the horror community, the process can be used for good or can even enhance the experience, especially in the cases of JURASSIC PARK or PREDATOR. Hell, in Europe, it’s nearly routine for classic genre titles to get 3D Blu-ray rereleases! Therefore, we decided to add another batch of terror titles that this writer would love to see in the third dimension, whether it be for their incredible FX make-up or cinematography that is begging for the increased depth…

  • FANGO Flashback: “BELOW” (2002)

    ,,

    For most horror fans, BELOW is best categorized as the “submarine horror film,” likely because it’s one of the very, very few explicitly genre films set on a submarine. Yet if you think about it, submarines could be one of the easiest places to set a horror film; after all, it’s a claustrophobic metal tube that primarily is known for navigating the dark recesses of the ocean, and on a budgetary level, a filmmaker can get a lot of mileage out of a set primarily made of long, metal hallways. And beyond that, BELOW also holds the distinction of being a damn good horror movie, with the combination of director David Twohy and co-writer/producer Darren Aronofsky placing emphasis on scares and tension in ways many haunted house movies would only dream of doing.

  • Stream to Scream: “SLEEPY HOLLOW” (1999)

    ,,

    Despite being in the FANGORIA Hall of Fame and synonymous with the modern Gothic movement, Tim Burton’s association with the horror genre remains a point of contention among horror fans to this day. While Burton has undeniably helmed horror films over the years, including BEETLEJUICE, DARK SHADOWS and SWEENEY TODD, some fright fans argue Burton is better known for his penchant towards dark, warped aesthetics than producing legitimate scare fare worthy of the genre mantle. Yet even the most hard-pressed horror hound has to admit that Burton put substance over style in at least one of his macabre movies, and it’s an impressive offering at that: 1999’s SLEEPY HOLLOW!

  • Q&A: Eli Roth on Venturing Into “THE GREEN INFERNO,” Part Two

    ,,,

    When Eli Roth set out to make his cannibal shocker THE GREEN INFERNO (in theaters this Friday), he didn’t do it in the safety of a studio setting; he took his cast and crew into the wilds of the Peruvian jungle (and explained his reasons in part one of this interview). It’s certainly an ambitious and, some might say, insane production model to follow, yet one that lends an almost indescribable sense of danger to the final movie.

  • Q&A: Director Mark Hartley on His Cannon Films Documentary “ELECTRIC BOOGALOO,” Part One

    ,,,

    If you’re a fan of ’80s exploitation cinema (and who among us isn’t?), you’re at least familiar with and very likely a fan of the output of Cannon Films. The new documentary ELECTRIC BOOGALOO tells the story of the maverick studio, and director Mark Hartley—who previously chronicled Ozploitation in NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD and Filipino fare in MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED!—spoke to FANGORIA about his latest celebration of excessive cinema.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE HAUNTING” (1963)

    ,,

    While there had certainly been many haunting films previous to 1963, there were few that were ever taken as seriously as Robert Wise’s THE HAUNTING. There had been the William Castle fare that had done boffo at the box office but had been overshadowed by its over-the-top promotional tools. There had also been many haunted house films that never quite locked down the art of horror, delivering the sheet-laden ghosts and floating-by-string objects that have become associated with that classic era of fright fare. But THE HAUNTING was one of the first horror films to truly chill audiences to the bone, with an innovative and understated approach that played with what audiences may or may not have seen.
