  • FANGO Flashback: “CONSTANTINE” (2005)

    ,,

    To be honest, Francis Lawrence’s CONSTANTINE is a film that gets an undeserved bad rap. At the time of its release, it didn’t fare very well with critics or fans of the HELLBLAZER comic series, many of whom harped on the film’s use of CGI and the casting of Keanu Reeves as the title character. However, time can certainly be a very curious thing, and in CONSTANTINE, not only is this a very strong genre effort- almost a modern equivalent to NIGHTBREED- but could perhaps be Lawrence’s crowning cinematic achievement as a filmmaker.

  • Stream to Scream: “FROM THE DARK”

    ,,

    With so many films coming out in the independent horror scene for one reason or another, it’s easy for little genre gems to fall through the cracks. While many of these films eventually make it to streaming services for the masses to consume, it’s still a bit disappointing that often that’s too little, too late in terms of supporting the film theatrically or via VOD. In essence, when you discover a film like the Irish vampire flick FROM THE DARK, it’s the kind of horror film you should actively attempt to support post-streaming as Conor McMahon proves he’s got the filmmaking chops to deliver something bold in the genre’s future.

    ,,

    With so many streaming services and digital video on-demand services out there nowadays, it’s no surprise that genre fans have more options to watch whatever they want than ever before. While this may be a normalcy for those growing up in the digital age, many of us who grew up with video stores or, hell, even the disc-delivery days of Netflix remember the difficulty- and in many cases, the thrill- of hunting down obscure genre films. Luckily, as much as there is that’s now widely available, there are still some horror gems that escape being found too easily, and so FANGORIA has dedicated this week’s Dreadful Ten to a collection of horror films worth the time and effort to track down.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE MIST”

    ,,

    In almost a tragic recurring theme in the horror genre, most of the films fright fans consider to be classics of the genre certainly were not received that way initially. Whether it be the many critically-lambasted post-HALLOWEEN efforts of John Carpenter, the direct-to-video dumps of FEAST and TRICK ‘R TREAT or the commercial failures such as THE MONSTER SQUAD and NIGHTBREED, most beloved terror titles have earned their esteemed reputations years, perhaps even decades after the fact. Yet few films have earned their prestigious post-release reputation more than Frank Darabont’s terrifying and tragic adaptation of Stephen King’s THE MIST, which truly has aged like a fine wine in the near-decade since its release.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BODY BAGS”

    ,,

    For any horror fan, the ‘90s can be a point of contention in the genre’s history. While the decade has produced some truly excellent fright fare, the decade didn’t quite find a popular groove in the genre until the post-SCREAM slasher boom, with many of the successive entries falling upon retrospective scrutiny. Yet potentially most damning about the ‘90s to fright fans was that many of the ‘80s horror masters found themselves marginalized and alienated by the studio system. And it was with that disdain that John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper fled to Showtime to set up shop with for televised terror, only to wind up with one of their most underrated titles to date: BODY BAGS.
