    Kathryn Newton: Normal Teen, “PARANORMAL ACTIVITY”

    by: Trevor Parker on: 2013-01-28 15:03:03

    Get ready to feel old: When asked what’s
    next on her slate following a star turn as terrified teen Alex in PARANORMAL
    ACTIVITY 4 (out on DVD/Blu-ray this Tuesday), effervescent young actress Kathryn
    Newton replies, “I’m doing my high school academic decathlon tomorrow.” Although
    already an experienced film and television actress, Ms. Newton’s tender age is uncommon;
    especially with the horror genre’s often shameless propensity for stuffing much
    older actors into teenage roles. It’s Newton’s authenticity and fresh appeal that
    adds spark to a franchise on its fourth installment and entices audiences to
    ride once again through the reliable PARANORMAL funhouse.

    Gemma Arterton: Life’s a “WITCH” for “HANSEL & GRETEL”

    British actress Gemma Arterton’s career has seen her literally running the gamut, from big-ticket actioners like the 007 film QUANTUM OF SOLACE, CLASH OF THE TITANS and PRINCE OF PERSIA to the intense, confined thrills of THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED. Now she’s kicking butt again as one-half of the heavily armed sibling team in HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (opening Friday from Paramount). Arterton spoke to Fango about her most adventurous role yet, as well as her upcoming vampire drama BYZANTIUM and a reunion with her DISAPPEARANCE director.

    Midst celebrating the warm, warm reception of S-VHS’
    Sundance world premiere (Fango’s review), and especially their segment in particular, Eduardo
    Sanchez and longtime producer/now co-director Gregg Hale (THE BLAIR WITCH
    PROJECT) are still actively finishing up their next foray into found footage,
    EXISTS. “We are mixing the sound right now. Then, we’ll be doing color
    correction. Basically, by the end of January, first week of February, we’ll be
    done and then we have a whole sales strategy,” Sanchez tells Fango.

    Remembering Michael Winner, 1935-2013

    by: Chris Alexander on: 2013-01-21 18:07:23

    I considered Michael Winner a friend. Not a friend in the sense that he’d loan me 50 bucks when I was short on rent, but a friend in that his kindness, openness, advice and cheerful nature were inspiring to me, personally.

    I like to think I perhaps brightened his day on occasion as well. Maybe there was a mutual appreciation; I’m not quite sure. All I know is that learning of his passing this morning (he died at age 77 after an illness), I feel a great sense of loss. All fans of old-fashioned, unironic, no-nonsense genre filmmaking should too.

    by: Kier-La Janisse on: 2013-01-19 22:48:05

    As horror fans, you know her as the iconic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, perhaps as the cheery boozer in Robert Siodmak’s THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE or WILLARD’s grouchy matriarch in the 1971 film of the same name. But how well do you really know Elsa Lanchester?

    EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Three

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-19 01:06:41

    It’s not easy being a ’70s-era horror director and trying to
    get films made today when all Hollywood seems to be interested in is remaking
    your past gory glories. Following his 2002 sleeper sensation BUBBA HO-TEP and after
    helming the scariest episode of MASTERS OF HORROR (2005’s INCIDENT ON AND OFF A MOUNTAIN ROAD),
    writer/director Don Coscarelli continues his career renaissance with his latest
    movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.

    EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Two

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-17 23:43:27

    First lesson when casting acting newcomers in your new genre
    flick: surround them with acting pros like Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti and
    fright faves such as Clancy Brown (THE BRIDE, HIGHLANDER, upcoming
    HELLBENDERS), Doug Jones (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and the legendary Tall Man
    himself, Angus Scrimm. That’s what writer/director Don Coscarelli did with his
    latest movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.
