  • FANGO Flashback: “PSYCHO III”

    ,

    Much like snowflakes and fingerprints, you’ll never find two horror fans with the same opinions about the PSYCHO sequels. Perhaps among the most divisive franchises in horror history, it’s difficult to find a critical consensus on the later tales of Norman Bates, whether it be Richard Franklin’s PSYCHO II, Mick Garris’ PSYCHO IV, the variations of BATES MOTEL or Anthony Perkins’ PSYCHO III. And while this writer has never been a fan of PSYCHO III, especially considering my love for PSYCHO and PSYCHO II, the time felt right to give PSYCHO III another shot, hoping to eschew the PSYCHO legacy and take it as a slasher in its own right.

  • Deaditorial: The Art of the Horror Tie-in

    ,

    Believe it or not, the horror genre is at a strangely unpredictable place at the moment. With haunting movies on the decline, the battle for the horror zeitgeist is raging on between the returning J-Horror and the slowly reviving slasher subgenres. Meanwhile, horror TV is at an all-time high, dominated by THE WALKING DEAD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY while still offering prestigious entertainment like PENNY DREADFUL and HANNIBAL. And horror video games are on the upswing, with UNTIL DAWN and THE EVIL WITHIN filling in the hole left by the dissolution of SILENT HILLS.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 ‘80s Horror Films That Deserve A Modern Sequel!

    ,,

    With CREED, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and ASH VS.

  • 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.

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.
