    Q&A: Jon Schnepp on “ABCs OF DEATH,” Part One

    The ABC’s of Death (now available on DVD and Blu-ray) is an alphabetized mind fuck through 36 gonzo, gory, and grim horror vignettes, each directed by a noted genre name. The “W” installment, WTF, was handled by Jon Schnepp, known for his work on METALOCALYPSE for which he’s produced, directed and developed the character design. ABC’s is his first foray into being a horror filmmaker, which seems to be where it’s at for this lifelong fan. The style in WTF, inspired by his great admiration for EVIL DEAD II, is definitely “splatstick” and “kitchen sink,” but there is more than one type of horror in Schnepp’s black metal heart. He adores body horror and would love to terrify in the tradition of both Cronenberg and Carpenter (e.g. THE THING). Schnepp was stoked to share his love and enthusiasm of all things geek with Fango.

    Filmmaker Patrick Rea talks Horror, the Midwest and his new film “NAILBITER”

    In Kansas, there are few things scarier than a tornado or a basement.

It’s that last bit that a mother and her daughters find themselves facing during a killer storm in NAILBITER.  Rea’s new feature is just the most recent work; he’s been making horror shorts for more than 10 years, and he’s just getting started.

    Down and dirty with “THE DEPRAVED”

    In the past few years, the urban exploration scene has grown exponentially, with thrill seekers looking for new ways to go off the grid in a world otherwise revealed by Google Earth and GPS-enabled cell phones. However, as with all mysterious locales, there comes the danger of the territory, and it’s that danger that inspired THE DEPRAVED (formerly known as URBAN EXPLORER), the brutal new horror film from director Andy Fetscher. The film, which comes out on DVD/Blu-ray from Uncork’d Entertainment June 4, follows a group of young urban explorers in Berlin who learn the terrifying truth about a local urban legend, which Fetscher claims is partially inspired by his own experiences.

    FANGORIA Presents: “GERM Z”—Getting the Bug Part One

    Though some fans may fear the zombie subgenre has grown tired in recent times, they can rest assured that GERM Z unleashes a revitalizing new take on its variety. This indie horror flick, which details the story that unfolds when a deadly germination spawns after the military executes what becomes a failed attempt to shoot down a satellite orbiting Earth, is unique in multiple regards—namely resulting from its heavily character-driven plotline and strong acting, two factors rarely seen in similar low-budget films. We chatted with co-director J.T. Boone (who, in addition to writing the screenplay and helping to produce GERM Z, works as an attorney) and producer Lynette Dixon (a radiologist by trade, also currently getting her masters degree in psychology) about the film, which arrives as the fifth release under the FANGORIA Presents banner (see here for details; to find Fango’s Comcast collection on your VOD channel, search this way: Movies > Movie Collections > Fangoria).

    Fango Funhouse: Judah Friedlander talks “FEAST,” “FEVER” and Frights!

    As any true fright fanatic can tell you, horror and comedy go together like monsters and sequels, often bleeding into one another in such iconic genre offerings such as the DEAD ALIVE, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON and CREEPSHOW. Whether it’s oddly timed decapitation or the bickering undead, few can argue that the subversive nature of both genres compliment each other with relative ease. Therefore, I welcome you, dear reader, to FANGO FUNHOUSE, a look into the co-dependent world of horror-comedy through those who know it best.

    Q+A: Director Katie Aselton talks indie thriller “BLACK ROCK”

    FANGO recently chatted with independent filmmaker Katie Aselton about her latest feature, BLACK ROCK (which hits theatres this Friday May 17) – a horror thriller about three lifelong friends who get much more than they bargained for after they set out on a camping trip with the intention of reconnecting with their childhoods. Aselton also acts in the film, alongside Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth. The screenplay was written by Aselton’s husband Mark Duplass, a film director, actor and producer often cited as one of leading visionaries of the mumblecore movement – a subgenre of independent film primarily characterized by its highly naturalistic approach. Aselton gave us the details on her filmmaking experience in addition to her take on mumblecore, and her relationships with both acting and directing. (Read more on the film in our current print issue FANGORIA #323.)

    Q&A: Luke Evans makes sure “NO ONE LIVES”

    The brand new bloodbath from stylistic director Ryûhei Kitamura (VERSUS, GODZILLA: FINAL WARS, THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN) is a welcome twist on the slasher. As most would argue you’re identifying with the stalker of these films anyway, NO ONE LIVES (out May 10 in select cities from Anchor Bay) presents its sociopath, the quietly menacing Driver, as your protagonist. It’s his world, the rest of the ensemble is just dying in it. Fango spoke with the film’s psycho killer, Luke Evans, about the movie, the inner workings of his character and all of the nasty fun he seemed to have on set.
