    After a bumpy start, some may be wondering if 2014 will be as good a year for screen fear as the one before it.

    [Sundance 2014] Director William Eubank Previews Midnighter, “THE SIGNAL”

    While Sundance has grown intensely in both size and notoriety (likely the first thing that comes to mind when filmgoers hear the term ‘film festival’), it’s retained a significant, definitive quality: the element of surprise. A great many titles of the annual lineup do come with some level of anticipation, be it cast or filmmakers sure, but often its most discussed films seemingly come out of nowhere, flooring audiences and critics alike. In horror alone, this yearly tradition has yielded the likes of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and SAW. In keeping with this spirit, Fango has opted to take a look at two films in the 2014 midnight lineup that arrive with little awareness, but may make a big impression. Today, as the curtain raises on Sundance 2014: William Eubank’s THE SIGNAL.

    Q&A: Eduardo Sanchez on 15 Years of “THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT”

    As the 2014 Sundance Film Festival—a particularly genre-heavy one at that, gets underway—the year also marks the 15th anniversary of what’s arguably the renowned fest’s biggest horror surprise: THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, a tiny piece of fright filmmaking that rocketed out of nowhere to become a sensation with a technique that’s not only still in use, but more popular than ever. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, while endlessly parodied, appropriated and overexposed, remains a household name for a reason. Its influence holds, sure, but so does its power. Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s first person account of missing documentarians is still all too eerie, and all too perfect for annual autumnal viewing. In celebration of the film, as well as the festival that helped launch it, FANGORIA and co-director Sánchez look back on BLAIR WITCH, their Sundance experience and its ultimate legacy.

    [Sundance 2014] Director Jennifer Kent Previews “THE BABADOOK”

    While Sundance has grown intensely in both size and notoriety (likely the first thing that comes to mind when filmgoers hear the term ‘film festival’), it’s retained a significant, definitive quality: the element of surprise.

First up: Jennifer Kent’s THE BABADOOK.

    Q&A: Sam Witwer on “BEING HUMAN’s” Fourth Season & More

    Who could have predicted that television would’ve been such a boon for the genre? Ten years ago, horror on television was virtually non-existent, or at best unabashedly campy due to the restrictions of standards and practices that butchered any fright film that made the transition to TV. Yet as censorship has become more relaxed and horror grows further and further into the eyes of casual audiences, horror seems to be everywhere on the small screen, whether it be on gory premium cable programming or brooding broadcast series.

    Q&A: Alice Eve Talks “COLD COMES THE NIGHT”

    Among the glut of often derivative or uninspired psychological thrillers in the marketplace these days, Tze Chun’s COLD COMES THE NIGHT is a visually striking and intense story of blue-collar intrigue that follows a Russian hitman, a corrupt police officer and the desperate, deceptive woman between them. The latter role is inhabited by Alice Eve, markedly playing against type in this brutal and suspenseful indie film.
