  • FANGO Flashback: “HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES”

    ,,

    The progression of Rob Zombie as a director is actually rather fascinating, especially considering his reputation as a gritty, extreme horror filmmaker. While the filmmaker has indeed at least embraced his perhaps prematurely bestowed title as a modern goremeister with his latest film, 31, the fact is that only a select few of his films are explicitly twisted, and even they seem relatively tame by today’s standards. In fact, by his track record, Zombie has made just as much slow-burn, surreal fright fare (such as THE LORDS OF SALEM and HALLOWEEN 2) as he has made gritty bloodletters (such as HALLOWEEN and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS). And yet, somewhere in the middle of those two points is a weird little film that, in retrospect, feels like an unholy mix of ‘80s-era Tobe Hooper and H.G. Lewis: HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES.

  • Stream to Scream: “BIG ASS SPIDER”

    ,,

    In today’s current horror landscape, there seems to be three kinds of creature features made for hardcore monster movie fans. The first would be the big budget blockbusters such as GODZILLA or PACIFIC RIM, which offer insane monster fighting action at a massive scale. The second would be the no-budget Syfy Originals, which offer over-the-top monster-run-amok films with Z-grade FX and stern, humorless performances. And then there’s the few and far between that comes out of the independent film world, some which have a campy appreciation for the creature features of the past and some, such as BIG ASS SPIDER!, that embrace the genre’s nature and makes comedy out of an inherently comical concept.

  • Event Report: FANGORIA’s NYC Screening of “THE DIABOLICAL”!

    ,,

    On Monday October 12th, FANGORIA hosted the first of many free NYC screenings for the month of October, beginning with the brand-new supernatural thriller THE DIABOLICAL. Ali Larter, in a role written specifically for her, gives a stellar performance alongside a very talented supporting cast including Max Rose, Chloe Perrin and Arjun Gupta. Co-written and directed by up-and-coming horror filmmaker Alistair Legrand, THE DIABOLICAL takes you on a claustrophobic journey through the turmoil of a single mother and her two young children as they battle for their sanity and their lives from supernatural forces. This unique take on an otherwise generic subgenre of horror is packed with thrills, scares and surprising twists, right up to the very last shot of the film.

    ,,,

    When FANGORIA sits down to interview Tom Hiddleston about CRIMSON PEAK, silverware in the table setting between us keeps vibrating…ghosts, perhaps? That would be appropriate given the subject matter at hand; we also got a few words from the actor about his next big role in KONG: SKULL ISLAND.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Films from After Dark’s ‘8 Films To Die For’ Series!

    ,,

    When After Dark Films launched their 8 Films To Die For Series nearly a decade ago, it was definitely a new experience for a majority of fright fans. For lovers of the lurid, After Dark brought the horror film festival experience to major multiplexes, often to theaters and towns that were nowhere near the horror hubs of the world. Yet even more surprising was that After Dark didn’t rely on the cheapest and the most homogenous films they could find, but took gambles on ambitious, eerie scare fare. And with 8 Films To Die For returning after a five year absence, FANGORIA has amassed our ten favorite After Dark titles for your Halloween viewing consideration…

  • Q&A: Casper Van Dien on Adopting a Killer Kid in “JUNE”

    ,,

    Considering how much depth and pathos STARSHIP TROOPERS/SLEEPY HOLLOW star Casper Van Dien brings to his nuanced, powerful turn as the adoptive father of the titular 9-year-old who drives the spectral coming-of-rage tale JUNE, it’s difficult to believe his path to the role began with the random serendipity of co-star Victoria Pratt passing him her cell phone between shots on the set of his award-winning sophomore directorial effort PATIENT KILLER.
