    Q&A: Rob Zombie on the Strange, Satanic “THE LORDS OF SALEM”

    Surreal and singular, THE LORDS OF SALEM is one of the must-see horror movies of the year. Regardless of your own reaction in the end, it’s simply unlike much of anything that’s out. As we discuss with its director, the always polarizing Rob Zombie, that alone should be an exciting prospect. A descent into Satanic madness that is often hypnotic, composed and grand, the film was completed on Zombie’s quickest shoot and lowest budget. Here, the director speaks with Fango candidly about the lack of adventurous movie going, finishing THE LORDS OF SALEM and of course, it’s incredible wallpaper.

    Director and Star Talk “THE DARK TOURIST”

    Maybe you’re planning a vacation this year. Maybe you’re going to London.

This, believes SOUTHLAND’s Michael Cudlitz, star of the just-released THE DARK TOURIST, means you have more in common with his character Jim Tahna than you might imagine.

    Bekah’s Top Underwater Horrors: The Deep Cuts

    Almost every culture known to man has some type of water monster-related folktale, and it makes total sense. Water covers 70.3% of the planet, and even the earliest cavemen surely had some anxiety about what could possibly be lurking beneath their rudimentary rafts. Loch Ness, Kappa, Kraken, and even Jaws—these stories and mythos endure simply because we still have no clue what could be living at the bottom of most lakes, let alone the deepest ocean trenches.

    Q&A: Paul Davis on Horror/Comedy FrightFest Premiere, “THE BODY”

    For many, Halloween is a night to be anyone they want. For The Man, it’s an occasion to be exactly who he is and receive otherwise untypical praise for it. That’s exactly how Paul Davis’ latest short, THE BODY plays out. World Premiering as part of the acclaimed Film4 FrightFest in London, the film stars GAME OF THRONES’ Alfie Allen as a black-suited murderer transporting a corpse out in the open, where most assume it’s an elaborate contribution to All Hallow’s activities. An evening of horror and humor (of the gallows sort) ensues. Fango spoke with Davis (BEWARE THE MOON:  REMEMBERING AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) as he begins to carry THE BODY through its festival life.

    Q&A: AJ Bowen talks “YOU’RE NEXT” and “AMONG FRIENDS”

    We here at FANGORIA are big fans of busy genre actor AJ Bowen—though we’re not sure we’d invite him to our next gathering at an isolated house. When he turns up for a family reunion in YOU’RE NEXT and a dinner party in AMONG FRIENDS, grisly trouble follows, but Bowen survived to speak to us about both movies.

    “ANGST”: The Crucial, Unreleased Home Invasion Classic

    In the opening moments of Gerald Kargl’s ANGST, a wildly imbalanced, frightfully impulsive killer is getting out of prison. As he’s escorted by guards, the camera which will serve as a significant source of frenzy throughout what’s to come, stylishly glides below him. It’s no traditional position of power, however. Tracking from the back and low, the viewer’s sensation is that of being dragged by the unnamed psychopath. We are now, however unwillingly, physically attached to him and through his constant narration, confined to his headspace as well. We’ve no place to go but to watch however this will play out. And that is, as one of the most powerful home invasion films out there.

    Simon Rumley talks his new-to-DVD films, “GEORGE ROMERO” movie and more

    Prior to his transition to the (very) dark side with films like THE LIVING AND THE DEAD and RED WHITE & BLUE, British independent filmmaker Simon Rumley made his big break into feature-length filmmaking with his “youth culture trilogy”—STRONG LANGUAGE (2000), THE TRUTH GAME (2001) and CLUB LE MONDE (2002, pictured above). The loosely connected triad is getting a long-overdue DVD release in North America today via Jinga Films, and Fango spoke with Rumley about these seminal works as well as what he’s got coming up.

    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.
