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

    Q&A: Mark Patton reflects on “FREDDY’S REVENGE” and More

    One of the more significant things that occurred in the wake of NEVER SLEEP AGAIN, the 2010 documentary about the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series, was the re-examination of the series’ second entry, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE. Since that time, the film’s lead, Mark Patton, has taken to the convention circuit, providing a very visible presence for what many have labeled the gayest horror film ever made. In honor of his upcoming appearance at THE MASSACRE in Chicago (see details below), Patton talks to FANGORIA about his memories of his NIGHTMARE cast mates and the platform that he has created for himself as an activist and humanitarian.

    Q&A: Marc Carreté on Barcelona-set Possession tale, “ASMODEXIA”

    Following two forays in the fantasy genre with the short films MAL CUERPO (2011) and CASTIDERMIA (2012), the latter of which was co-directed with Xavi Garriga, Marc Carreté (born in Barcelona, 1970) makes his feature debut with the film ASMODEXIA; a road film concerning an evangelist grandfather, his granddaughter, exorcisms and the city of Barcelona as theatre of the events (a metropolis that has, in recent years, become the impromptu set of many horror productions: from REC [Paco Plaza & Jaume Balagueró, 2007] to LOS ÚLTIMOS DIAS [Alex Pastor & David Shepherd, 2012], Hooked Up [Paul Larcuen, 2013] and even the U.S. and Canada co-production AFFLICTED [Clif Prowse & Derek Lee, 2013], of which the initial section was also developed in Barcelona).

    Q&A: “CURSE OF CHUCKY” stars Fiona Dourif, Chantal Quesnelle and Danielle Bisutti

    While Chucky may be the name most synonymous with the CHILD’S PLAY franchise, the killer doll’s adversaries have been noteworthy in their own right. Who can forget young Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay in the first two films, Katherine Heigl doing her best to ward off Tiffany and her beau in BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED’s turn by rapper Redman? The franchise tradition of memorable performances from a wide variety of performers continues in CURSE OF CHUCKY, most notably in the casting of Brad Dourif’s daughter Fiona as wheelchair-bound heroine Nica.

    Q&A: “CURSE OF CHUCKY” Writer/Director Don Mancini

    Quite a bit of time has passed since we last saw our favorite killer Good Guy doll in action. In SEED OF CHUCKY, writer/director/series creator Don Mancini’s directorial debut, Chucky was a proud father trying to teach his long-lost child the ways of the knife. After that film came and went, things were quiet on the CHILD’S PLAY franchise front—although typically (and to the chagrin of many), there was very real talk of a potential remake that luckily turned out to be a false alarm. Now Mancini has returned with the latest entry in the franchise, CURSE OF CHUCKY.

    Q&A: Director Jacob Vaughan on Good Puppetry and “BAD MILO”

    In BAD MILO, director Jacob Vaughan implicitly understands that our highest enjoyment of this tale of the titular intestinal demon and the havoc he wreaks would come with strings—or rods—attached. That is to say, BAD MILO works on a level of madcap horror/comedy thanks to all of the arguments we’ve seen in support of old school practical FX. Milo the demon is there, and so are his puppeteers Frank Langley and Bob Mano, bringing him in and out of Ken Marino’s butt to alternately bite dicks and cuddle close. FANGORIA spoke with Vaughan about the process of bringing Bad, and Good, Milo to life.

    Shriekfest ’13: Director Schultz on Exorcism Horror Comedy “DEVIL IN MY RIDE”

    As any seasoned fan of horror may know by now, pulling off a horror comedy that’s actually funny or scary is a difficult endeavor. To focus on the comedy, there must be a sense of brevity that off-sets any building tension and to deliver scares, the audience must still take the material seriously. Often times, filmmakers can turn to unique characters, interactive set pieces and twists on familiar scenarios to get laughs and still keep the creepy elements, but there’s a need for more filmmaking finesse to create something memorable, and that often only comes from a healthy combination of passion and wit.
