  • 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.

  • Stream to Scream: “THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN”

    ,,

    One of the reasons THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN became one of the most buzzworthy titles of 2014 was because how effectively it subverted expectations. Despite being a found footage film, the film won over the subgenre’s greatest critics and apologists alike on the power of its narrative. Despite going direct-to-video and, soon after, Netflix, the film proved itself to be stronger than almost any fright film that made its way into theaters last summer as well as even many offerings on the streaming platform. And even above that, THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN was a simply impressive film altogether, offering something surprisingly unpredictable, fresh and different in the age of the referential and repetitive.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Most Anticipated Horror Directorial Follow-Ups

    ,,

    With more and more film festivals becoming genre-centric or adding emphasis to their horror-friendly midnight line-ups, there have been an increasing number of horror directors bursting onto the horror scene. Unfortunately, with the independent market being how it currently is, it’s a blessing that even a few of these director’s get a chance to make a second film, let alone carve out a career path. Combine that with myriad proven storytellers in the genre and there are sadly too many filmmakers that have been dormant for one reason or another for too long. Thus, FANGORIA has assembled our ten most anticipated directorial follow-ups in the genre…

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE DEAD ZONE” (1983)

    ,,

    When Cronenberg comes up in discussion among horror fans, THE DEAD ZONE doesn’t get quite as much attention as Cronenberg’s more esoteric and bizarre offerings. In fact, THE DEAD ZONE is almost a perpetually overlooked title among the director’s impressive oeuvre, despite being as scary as any film the Canadian Master of Horror has ever crafted. Even more to his credit, Cronenberg crafted something truly unsettling and eerie while effectively visualizing the voice of Stephen King, who, at the time, was a bona fide horror powerhouse with a legion of loyal fans.

  • Stream to Scream: “ZOMBEAVERS”

    ,,

    When it comes to a film like Jordan Rubin’s ZOMBEAVERS, where do you start but with the title? Obviously, many who see the film will immediately expect FULL MOON level camp at best, especially since the world of Syfy Originals has propelled animal horror into dull parody territory over the past decade. However, don’t let the punny, funny title fool you: ZOMBEAVERS is a full-fledged monster movie, with some genuinely awesome FX work as well as a firm sense of self-awareness that never derails the narrative. And furthermore, rather than desperately attempting to be a throwback or be too referential, ZOMBEAVERS decides to tell an original creature feature story that also works as an irreverent contemporary horror comedy in its own right.

    ,,

    No matter how jaded horror fans can be at times, there’s little denying the satisfaction true horror hounds feel in the return of cannibal fare in the genre. With HANNIBAL redefining TV (and FANGORIA #343) and Eli Roth’s highly anticipated love letter to classic cannibal fare, THE GREEN INFERNO, coming to theaters from BH Tilt on September 25th, not only are macabre man-eaters back in the zeitgeist, but they’re back in all of their grisly gory.

  • Flesh and Blood: “INNOCENT BLOOD” [NSFW]

    ,,,,,

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!
