    Q&A: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES” & Independent filmmaking for 30+ years

    From the genre-bending head trip of the PHANTASM films to the inspired lunacy of BUBBA-HO TEP and now JOHN DIES AT THE END, Don Coscarelli has been a truly original voice in the horror wilderness for over 30 years.

    FANGORIA Presents “AXED”: Father Knows Best

    Being the lead villain in a horror film is no easy feat for an actor. Do you play the strong, silent type like Michael and Jason? Or do you go charismatic and sly, like Patrick Bateman or Leslie Vernon?

    Q&A: Brady Corbet & no philosophy of a “SIMON KILLER”

    Both hypnotic and frightening, SIMON KILLER (out April 5 in select theaters and on VOD April 12) is a film I readily refer to as a sociopathic odyssey (see Fango’s review here). The titular college-aged student abroad in Paris is something of a primal, fickle blank slate but, as with most psychologically unsettling characters, there’s something recognizable as well. Lead actor Brady Corbet who, together with director Antonio Campos, shaped the role confirms as much when throughout our conversation about personality traits and soundtrack choices, points to the film as a reaction against the ever aggressive, dissociative  and misogynistic  world view of today’s young men.

    Q&A: “6 SOULS” screenwriter Michael Cooney

    In his numerous genre screenplays, Michael Cooney has demonstrated a penchant for dealing with issues of disturbed minds. Like his 2003 hit IDENTITY, his latest feature 6 SOULS takes a frightening look at what happens when multiple psyches inhabit the same mind—this time with a supernatural backstory. Fango spoke to Cooney about scripting scary split personalities…and his past directing a killer snowman.
