  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Small Scream, or Why Horror Deserves Television

    ,,

    As some people might have figure out in the last 20 years, the internet can sometimes be a really awful place for rational discussion. Thanks to knee-jerk reactions, simple-minded trolling and a wave of intolerable ignorance, message boards around the net have become defunct while social media has become a place for more intimate, depressing forms of harassment. When you throw in something like film culture, where every opinion is divine until otherwise stated, the internet can be a shark tank as subjects like reboots, sequels, film adaptations and modern cinema are as likely to rouse vehement hate as opposed to any sense of open-mindedness.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BONES” (2001)

    ,,

    Upon its initial release, BONES was not defined by the impressive track record of director Ernest Dickerson, nor was it defined by New Line Cinema, which had been struggling to find a horror successor to the nearly decade defunct NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise. No, BONES was defined by and pre-emptively written off by many horror fans because of its star, rapper Snoop Dogg, whose face and thin visage would define the marketing for BONES. However, because BONES was regarded (and disregarded) as “that Snoop Dogg horror movie,” not many horror aficionados took the time to give the movie a chance. Had they did, perhaps they would have seen what this writer saw when revisiting the film one week ago: a genuinely creepy and incredibly fun fright flick with shades of imaginative insanity throughout.

  • Stream to Scream: “DUST DEVIL”

    ,,

    There are horror films that attempt to scare the audience by creating a world as close to our reality as possible; films that go for grit and realism in order to make you believe that a palpable threat could be lurking just outside your door. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are movies that place their narratives deep inside a dreamscape, forcing the characters within to navigate a world where myth and monsters are God, and the corporeal realm we know is an afterthought at best.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: “ANGST”, “HENRY” and The Serial Killer Conundrum

    ,,

    For over thirty years, Gerald Kargl’s ANGST was a holy grail for hardcore horror fans, garnering a reputation as a serial killer film so shocking and realistic that no U.S. distributor was willing to take a gamble on it. Furthermore, bootlegs of ANGST became a crapshoot for underground collectors considering the film rarely made home video without some kind of censorship or unapproved edits, making the select few 35mm screenings of the film must-go events for the horror and art crowds alike. And now, in 2015, ANGST has finally made its way into the American marketplace, hitting Blu-ray and select theatrical screenings around the country, one of which this writer attended no more than 2 weeks ago.

  • FANGO Flashback: “CUBE”

    ,,

    Though his work is often underrated by the horror community at large, there’s few horror filmmakers this writer would like to see more from than Vincenzo Natali. An indie auteur who always provides a subversive, thought-provoking edge to his output, Natali has recently parlayed his efforts into the world of television, leaving his stamp on shows such as HANNIBAL, ORPHAN BLACK, HEMLOCK GROVE, DARKNET and more. But even with all the work Vincenzo has done as of late, there’s always a spot in this writer’s heart for his directorial debut, CUBE.
