  • Stream to Scream: “KRISTY”

    ,,

    When a movie finds a comfortable spot on a studio shelf, more than likely it’s the sign of a troubled production. Whether it’s a hard film to sell, a tough script to crack or any number of legal issues, there’s rarely a film that comes out unscathed once it’s pulled from a set release date. But a negative preconception doesn’t necessarily equate to a low-quality film, and in the case of KRISTY (a/k/a SATANIC), which was unceremoniously debuted on the Lifetime Channel after nearly 2 years on the shelf, is living proof that not all rocky roads lead to disappointing places.

So for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA has decided to give credit to ten horror sequels that are much better than their reputation lets on!

  • FANGO Flashback: “NINJA III: THE DOMINATION”

    ,,

    As anyone familiar with the frequently over-the-top production house can tell you, The Cannon Group didn’t make the kind of films one forgets easily. In fact, with titles like 10 TO MIDNIGHT, SCHIZOID, THE COMPANY OF WOLVES and a trio of Tobe Hooper films (LIFEFORCE, INVADERS FROM MARS and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2) under their belt, Cannon gave the horror genre some of the sleaziest, bloodiest, and most imaginative fare throughout the ‘80s. Yet nothing quite married the best, worst and craziest elements of The Cannon Group than NINJA III: THE DOMINATION, a horror-action odyssey that takes the possession subgenre into jaw-dropping insanity.

  • Stream to Scream: “FRANKENHOOKER”

    ,,

    From what this writer hears and sees on a daily basis, many horror fans are turned off by what is being offered in the wave of modern macabre cinema these days. And while those fans might be a little dramatic and potentially a little blind to the excellent output on the independent level, this writer can agree that, in most cases, horror filmmakers just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Case in point: FRANKENHOOKER, the type of film that is both equally absurd and astonishing yet would never, ever be produced today.

  • Deaditorial: Streaming Services are Killing Horror (And What They Can Do To Save It)

    ,,,

    It’s a bit hard to imagine, but I’ve been a paying Netflix subscriber for over ten years now. At first, what appealed to me wasn’t the convenience of never going to the local video store, which was a ritual I cherished then and miss dearly now, but rather the impossibly huge selection. As much as Blockbuster or Merchant Square Video could have the coolest new releases, the interesting video fare and a nice chunk of old & obscure films, they didn’t quite have everything I had been recommended via friend’s older brothers and society’s younger brother, the internet. And so I partook in the 3-at-a-time disc service to rent films such as MEET THE FEEBLES, KING OF THE ANTS and UHF, plus many various foreign, art and shlock films I couldn’t find elsewhere.

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Ray Santiago talks “ASH VS. EVIL DEAD”

    ,,

    Even though the show may be titled ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, horror hounds all know that Ash needs a helping hand once in awhile. And while Ash has had many brave souls fighting alongside him, very few have been as enthusiastic to take on the painful trade of Deadite-slaying as Pablo, played by SUBURBAN GOTHIC actor Ray Santiago. With hilarious comic timing and a genuine passion for the material, Santiago effectively holds his own against co-stars Bruce Campbell and Dana DeLorenzo, and at the 2015 New York Comic Con, FANGORIA caught up with Santiago to talk all things EVIL DEAD…
