    Q&A: Steven C. Miller on what’s “UNDER THE BED”

    Steven C. Miller, the prolific independent filmmaker whose varied career has already explored zombies, killer Santas, Banshees and home invasion has found his inner adolescent for monster movie UNDER THE BED. It’s a film that attempts to marry the junior high-aged adventures of kids-in-danger 80s staples and the more gore-hungry sensibilities of (not much) older horror fans. Fango spoke to Miller about trying to find a sweet spot in between.

    Chris Alexander Remembers RICHARD MATHESON, 1926-2013

    The great Richard Matheson has passed.

    The man who invented the template for what would evolve – with some un-authorized assistance from George A. Romero – into the modern zombie and who re-invented what a vampire could be with his 1954 novella I AM LEGEND, defined the parameters of dark fantasy fiction, working in all mediums and developing a style and evolving thematic arc that carried into his final writings.

    THE GENTLE MANIAC: Buddy Giovinazzo Remembers Original “MANIAC” Joe Spinell

    With all the excitement surrounding the stateside release of Franck Khalfoun’s MANIAC this week, we wanted to also take the opportunity to look back at the original. The first stop, for me, was to see these pages graced with a tribute to the soft-spoken screen giant Joe Spinell. COMBAT SHOCK director Buddy Giovinazzo, who was working on the MANIAC sequel MR. ROBBIE at the time of Spinell’s death, remembers the late, great character actor.

    Participating in Terror: Director Franck Khalfoun on the point-of-view of a “MANIAC”

    The long-awaited and highly curious remake of MANIAC transplants not only the action from a grimy New York to a seedy Los Angeles, but the viewer from mere observer to inhabitant of compulsive killer Frank. Elijah Wood stars as the introverted and lethal vessel which the audience effectively becomes a part of. It’s often stark, stylish, unsettling and perhaps most frightening, participatory. FANGORIA and director Franck Khalfoun spoke about the choice of POV, and its implications.

    Q&A: “THIS IS THE END” Star Jay Baruchel

    With the current rage of Earth’s demise playing out in cinemas worldwide (OBLIVION, AFTER EARTH) and many more such grim flicks to come, it’s refreshing to see the Apocalypse played for laughs in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s uproarious THIS IS THE END (see review here). Not only is it the year’s funniest film, but it plays most of its horrors straight: pits of hell opening on Melrose Boulevard, huge winged demons ripping the heads off pathetic humans and Jonah Hill doing his best Linda Blair impersonation. Equally novel, THE IS THE END has Hollywood’s A-list of comedic superstars (Rogen, Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, etc.) playing their debauched selves. Fango caught up with the film’s lead, actor/producer Jay Baruchel, an admitted horror geek who provided insight into THIS IS THE END’s diabolical mischief.
