    Q&A: Kristina Buozyte on surreal, psychosexual “VANISHING WAVES”

    VANISHING WAVES imagines something intense: A neural connection, a relationship forged entirely inside the mind of someone who’s retreated entirely from trauma and the world at large. There, thanks to stunning scientific progression, a surreal, incredibly sexual and weirdly violent landscape awaits. It makes for a haunting, beautiful headtrip in Lithuanian filmmaker Kristina Buozyte’s second feature, now arriving on DVD from thrilling new distributor Artsploitation Films.

    [SDCC '13] Sam’s Comic-Con Highlights!

    This year in San Diego, for one glorious hour or so, I lived in a Mario Bava movie. That’s how it felt, at least, and that was the best. How appropriate I was determined to only drink wine that evening. That was Thursday, the day one that feels like day two of Comic-Con. If I’ve noticed anything these past few years that FANGORIA made the trip, it’s that Preview Night is no small sneak anymore, and the line to purchase one of my highlights below was just as rough Wednesday as any other day.

    Fantasia ’13: Q&A With “THE BATTERY” Writer/Director/Star Jeremy Gardner

    One of the great things about Montreal’s Fantasia film festival, which began its 2013 edition last night, is the showcase it gives to small but worthy new movies and up-and-coming filmmakers. Case in point: the terrific new undead drama THE BATTERY, which screens at the fest this weekend, and whose creator and star Jeremy Gardner spoke to us about its production.

    Q&A: Nicolas Winding Refn’s heightened, indulgent reality of “ONLY GOD FORGIVES”

    An intensely singular “something else,” ONLY GOD FORGIVES is an amazing flipside to the cool that was DRIVE. Nightmarish, surreal and red all over, Nicolas Winding Refn delved deep into the dark silence and hard stares of his work and returned with a fable about undeserved revenge and a mother-son relationship that “warped” only begins to describe.

    [SDCC '13] Report, Pics: Legendary’s GODZILLA Encounter

    San Diego Comic-Con extends far out of the convention center. Ever widening, it takes over the surrounding Gaslamp Quarter, its hotels and restaurants, and is often a barrage of advertisements. Studios come with what they hope to be their biggest and best, drumming up anticipation. More so, they’re drumming up anticipation for that anticipation. There’s few things Fango is as interested in this year as how the new GODZILLA is shaping up. The King of Monsters returning at the hands of one of our brightest new talents (Gareth Edwards, who debuted with the fantastic MONSTERS) is something to be excited about. Warner Bros. & Legendary knows as such. They could surely rest on the highly anticipated panel and a simple teaser. They have not.

    Getting Possessed by “ENTITY,” Part Two

    One of the most refreshing current trends in horror is the resurgence of old-fashioned haunting stories. Pioneering the horror genre practically into existence, stories of spirits, possession and malevolent souls have had a renaissance as of late, with intelligent and resourceful fright filmmakers showing exactly why these tales were so terrifying to begin with. And amongst this resurgence rises FANGORIA Presents’ ENTITY, an intense psychological and supernatural fear film about a documentary crew investigating a reported haunting site in Siberia. You can watch ENTITY for free on Hulu.

    Q+A: FX Artist Jennifer Aspinall talks STREET TRASH, exploding on Blu-ray today

    I can never get enough of STREET TRASH. One of the original gorehound video sensations of the 80s and a showcase for emerging FX talent Jennifer Aspinall, STREET TRASH was gooey, gross, politically incorrect, and featured James Lorinz and Tony Darrow as the best comedy duo since Alan Arkin and James Caan in FREEBIE AND THE BEAN.

    Director Herman Yau is well-known to Asian-horror fans for his notorious Category III pictures THE UNTOLD STORY and EBOLA SYNDROME from the early/mid-’90s, though he has made dozens of films in many other genres since then, including a pair of new martial arts movies featuring the legendary Ip Man. While visiting the current New York Asian Film Festival, Yau and screenwriter Erica Li chatted with Fango about those actioners, as well as the director’s return to extreme horror.
