    Q&A: Dylan Baker Reflects on “TRICK ‘R TREAT” and Halloween Hijinks

    TRICK ‘R TREAT is well on its way to tradition. A film reverent of Halloween, it captures the holiday’s dark, mischievous air like so few have been able. This means it’d probably fall in the good graces of Principal Steven Wilkins, a standout of the film’s great ensemble thanks to the work of Dylan Baker. Presiding over and hewing close to the roots of Samhain, Steven Wilkins is unhappy with those who are disrespectful and there is grim delight in watching him deal with one such youth.

    Death Metallers Howling pay tribute to Chas Balun and “HORROR HOLOCAUST” on new record

    HOWLING is not at all shy about letting its genre roots show—the gore-festooned melodic death metallers’ self-declared influences include “80s back issues of FANGORIA, GOREZONE, DEEP RED, and vintage poster/VHS artwork from the glory days” and the band’s excellent full-length debut A BEAST CONCEIVED paid open homage to a bevy of underground classics from the backwoods horror subgenre.

    Gallery: Dead Right Horror Trivia Night’s Top Ten Halloween Costumes!

    When FANGORIA and Shock Till you Drop decided to team-up to create a horror-based pub trivia night, we had no idea how popular it’d end up. Ryan Turek and I skillfully crafted our questions and game play, and fans showed up in droves. Now, ten months on, the monthly-event has a lengthy waiting list and continues to be super competitive and ridiculously fun. Being October, this past week we added one additional rule to the game play: all participants must come in costume or points will be deducted. Rather than suffer our point-dropping wrath, everyone dressed in festive attire, and considering this is a horror-geeky lot, we saw some astonishingly creative genre-based outfits. Check out the best below!

    Q&A: “HELLBENDERS” star Clifton Collins Jr.

    In HELLBENDERS, opening in select theaters (in 3D) and on VOD today from Lionsgate, a group of rogue priests calling themselves the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints will do anything to fight evil—including committing some pretty sinful acts themselves. Both enacting and confronting bad behavior on screen is nothing new for actor Clifton Collins Jr., who plays the group’s second-in-command, Larry.

    A History of British Folk Horror

    England is an old country. There’s evidence of us as a Mesolithic people 15,000 years ago, and the beginnings of a settled society, rituals, religious worship and farming – the first Field in England, in fact – in the Neolithic period. The first version of Stonehenge began to be assembled around 2800 BC; the first stones were laid there in 2200 BC; and the final phase started around 1600 BC. We had a society in the Bronze Age, roughly contemporaneous with Homer’s Troy. The Romans invaded in 55 BC. The Vikings hit us in 790 and 866 AD, taking Nottingham, York and Northumberland before being kicked out by Alfred the Great in 878. And the Normans took us in 1066, irrevocably fusing their own culture with ours.

    Beyond Fest closes with special Livestreamed screening of “TRICK ‘R TREAT”; EXCL Comments

    The successor to the seasonal cinematic throne is clear, and has been since a groundswell of buzz and support screenings (one by FANGORIA at the no-longer-with-us Pioneer Theater in the East Village) and its eventual immensely inadequate DVD release in October of 2009 saw TRICK ‘R TREAT blow audiences away. Steadily amassing a cult of fans and given a 24-hour annual Halloween marathon on FEARNet, the adoration of Michael Dougherty’s fantastic anthology has culminated in its producers at Legendary giving it the blowout it deserves. TRICK ‘R TREAT will close the currently running Beyond Fest in Los Angeles on Monday, October 28 with a cast and crew panel and screening at the Egyptian Theater, with both the film and Q&A livestreamed over Facebook. Writer/director Michael Dougherty spoke with FANGORIA about the enduring picture and the upcoming event…

    “WORLD WAR Z”: Max Brooks’ Battlefield Report, Part Two

    More ink was spilled on the film version of WORLD WAR Z than on any other horror flick in recent memory. First early gossip pegged the troubled production as DOA months before it even opened, but WORLD WAR Z (now available on disc, including an extended version Blu-ray) ultimately emerged as a summer blockbuster, grossing over $540 million worldwide.
