    FANGORIA Presents: Lady Frankenstein goes “CORPSING”

    One of the most recurring and persevering aspects of the horror genre is the ability to shape stories about the moral and ethical quandaries of progression into tales of “worst case scenario” terror. From as far back as Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN, the idea of new sciences, discoveries and knowledge turning against those who explore and create has shown up time and time again within the fright field, including THE FLY adaptations, ALTERED STATES and JURASSIC PARK. And while the angles taken on progression within these frightening stories are extreme in theory, the questions still remain at the end of the film and are as philosophically relevant today as they were in their origination.

    FANGORIA Presents: Lance Henriksen on “SIN REAPER”

    As any devoted FANGORIA reader knows, one of the reasons why horror is one of the strongest genres of cinema is the fact that the love for horror is so universal and communal. The horror genre brings together audiences young and old in a way unlike any other, as the experience of watching a scary movie differs so uniquely from person to person. Thusly, one cannot be surprised when you see the different voices coming out of the fright field around the world, not separated by language or generational gap, but rather brought together by the international tool of storytelling and the fears that we revisit time and time again.

    Q&A: Sebastián Silva and the Paranoid Atmosphere of “MAGIC MAGIC”

    Sebastián Silva, aided by a truly remarkable performance from Juno Temple, turns MAGIC MAGIC (now available on DVD from Sony) into a movie where its paranoid atmosphere seeps out and permeates the audience watching it. It’s something undeniably strange, oddly funny in certain moments and head-to-toe unsettling at others. It can be both simultaneously, and most often exclusively the latter. A tale predicated on uncertainty, Alicia (Temple) has little physical sense of where she is and is subsequently losing a mental grasp, as well. FANGORIA spoke with Silva about creating this ever-nervous world, the nature of horror, urban myth and his fear of a misleading trailer.

    Q&A: Joséphine de la Baume & Roxane Mesquida on Vampire sisterhood in “KISS OF THE DAMNED”

    At the center of the swirling, swooning style of Xan Cassavetes’ direction in KISS OF THE DAMNED is the swirling, strained relationship of vampire sisters Djuna and Mimi. As heightened as the film itself, the performances from Joséphine de la Baume and Roxane Mesquida are deeply felt and loudly performed. FANGORIA spoke with the actresses about creating such a tender bond and the real life dilemmas explored in KISS OF THE DAMNED (now available on DVD and Blu-ray along with the fantastic soundtrack).

    [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.
