  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Best & Worst Fathers in Horror

    ,

    “I took care of it. That’s why God made fathers babe. That’s why God made fathers…”

    Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and we here at FANGORIA thought it’d be the perfect time to dig deep and take a look at the Good, the Bad, and the Downright Demonic of the horror genre’s fathers. First, let’s resist the urge to go straight to the gutter, and examine some of the positive patriarchs inhabiting our favorite fright flicks.

  • Q&A: Kristen Connolly Talks ABC’s Paranormal Series “THE WHISPERS”

    ,,

    In ABC’s new series THE WHISPERS (airing Monday nights at 10/9 Central), loosely based by show creator Soo Hugh on Ray Bradbury’s short story “The Zero Hour,” assorted adults must deal with the sinister influence exerted over children by a mysterious presence named Drill. As Drill’s circle of young “friends” expands, it becomes clear he has a special interest in the offspring of people who are highly placed in the government, scientists and those who work with nuclear-power sources.

  • Flesh and Blood: “PHANTASM II”

    ,,,,

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!

  • FANTASTICA Presents: When Animal Films Attack!

    ,,

    In the past, animals have always played an important role in the lexicon of horror. Now, we see animals as some sort of radioactive experiment gone wrong or a total far out way to destroy a city (I am looking at you SHARKNADO). In these contemporary projects, people forget that animals in their natural habitats are often terrifying, and that many people have fears of spiders, sharks and any animal that has sharp teeth and a thirst for blood.  Modern directors’ forays into animal horror are often so over the top that it is not scary; instead, it becomes laughable. But it didn’t always used to be that way, as more realistic animal horrors from fright film history would make people think, “Can this happen to me?”

  • Return of the Dragon: Know Your “HANNIBAL”!

    ,,

    It’s been nearly 30 years since the first cinematic iteration of Hannibal Lecter hit audiences in Michael Mann’s MANHUNTER, and even that took place two years before THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS even hit book shelves. And now, with Thomas Harris’ cerebral cannibal now gracing the small screen in an elegant and eerie fashion, FANGORIA is looking back at each of the respective Dr. Lecter’s who have made their mark on the big and small screen…

  • Stream to Scream: “PET SEMATARY”

    ,,

    “The soil of a man’s heart is stonier.” These words are intoned by both Jud Crandall and the helpful spectre Pascow at different points in the classic Stephen King novel/film PET SEMATARY. It’s a sentiment that can easily be applied to King’s adapted filmography, which is a quarry pit filled with diamonds and rocks. The aforementioned 1989 film, directed by Mary Lambert (whose other genre credits include PET SEMATARY II, URBAN LEGEND: BLOODY MARY, and the classic TALES FROM THE CRYPT episode “Collection Completed”) and scripted by King himself (who also enjoys a brief cameo as a minister during a funeral scene) undoubtedly stands out as one of the diamonds. Nearly thirty years after its release, PET SEMATARY still has that kind of scary sheen that supernatural films try but often fail to emulate.
