  • Q&A: Director Ciarán Foy on the Kids and Kill Films of “SINISTER 2,” Part One

    ,,

    The super-creepy horror hit SINISTER was a hard act to follow, but Irish director Ciarán Foy was the right man for the job. Having scored a critical and festival hit with the hoodie horror film CITADEL a couple of years ago, he tackled SINISTER 2, and gave Fango a lengthy interview about the sequel.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NOMADS” (1986)

    ,,

    The horror genre has a long track record of being a jumping-off point for the careers of many actors and directors. Before helming classic films such as THE GODFATHER and APOCALYPSE NOW, legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola got his start directing Roger Corman-produced horror features such as THE TERROR and DEMENTIA 13.  George Clooney got one of his earliest feature film roles in RETURN TO HORROR HIGH, and before he’d go on to direct blockbusters, Sam Raimi carved out a legacy as a master of horror that began with EVIL DEAD. And for future action heavyhitter John McTiernan, his career as a director began with a trippy little tale of terror called NOMADS.

  • Q&A: The Creators of the Psycho-Child Film “THE BOY”

    ,,,

    The tone of Craig William Macneil’s THE BOY (now in theaters and debuting on VOD today; see review here) is one of the grave. It rarely flinches from its remorseless silence—the silence of a 9-year-old child (Jared Breeze) watching from a tree with binoculars, having left scraps of food on the road to lure animals to their deaths.

  • Stream to Scream: “PONTYPOOL”

    ,,

    The power of language is not to be underestimated. Whenever one listens to a speech or reads a magazine article, the use of words, their intended message, and their potential subtexts, are all important factors to pay attention to, because more than anything we want to extrapolate the meaning of the speaker/author’s words, to understand them and perhaps communicate with them.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Best “TALES FROM THE CRYPT” Episodes

    ,,,

    It’s a bit of a shame that the televised horror anthology has more-or-less been put out to pasture. With the CW passing on Joe Hill’s TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE pilot and the likes of MASTERS OF HORROR in our rearview, anthology horror appears as “too much of a gamble” to most broadcasters, despite the fact that there are more skilled horror directors in the independent world than ever before. And while the horror anthology series will likely rise from the grave someday, one could only hope it’ll attain zeitgeist-level relevance near the likes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and TALES FROM THE CRYPT.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Small Scream, or Why Horror Deserves Television

    ,,

    As some people might have figure out in the last 20 years, the internet can sometimes be a really awful place for rational discussion. Thanks to knee-jerk reactions, simple-minded trolling and a wave of intolerable ignorance, message boards around the net have become defunct while social media has become a place for more intimate, depressing forms of harassment. When you throw in something like film culture, where every opinion is divine until otherwise stated, the internet can be a shark tank as subjects like reboots, sequels, film adaptations and modern cinema are as likely to rouse vehement hate as opposed to any sense of open-mindedness.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BONES” (2001)

    ,,

    Upon its initial release, BONES was not defined by the impressive track record of director Ernest Dickerson, nor was it defined by New Line Cinema, which had been struggling to find a horror successor to the nearly decade defunct NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise. No, BONES was defined by and pre-emptively written off by many horror fans because of its star, rapper Snoop Dogg, whose face and thin visage would define the marketing for BONES. However, because BONES was regarded (and disregarded) as “that Snoop Dogg horror movie,” not many horror aficionados took the time to give the movie a chance. Had they did, perhaps they would have seen what this writer saw when revisiting the film one week ago: a genuinely creepy and incredibly fun fright flick with shades of imaginative insanity throughout.
